    Automation and data exchange are no longer optional industrial innovations. If an industrial organization wants to thrive, they need to reconsider their old Industry 3.0 habits.

    It was around the 1990s that Machine Vision (MV) started to become a practical reality in the industry, especially within manufacturing environments. The advancements in other indirect technologies, from enhanced lighting, intelligent imaging systems, sensing, control, and especially computing, have helped MV systems transform into a practical reality.

    Today, MV has evolved so much that it is considered the eye of industrial automation. Its imaging-based automated decision-making capabilities can benefit any industry, especially manufacturing with automatic visual inspection and quality control processes. But MV can also help in other environments such as strengthening surveillance and security, guiding collaborative robots, or even driving vehicles.

    In order to build the largest edge cloud network in rural environments, network-as-a-service providers utilize edge computing and wireless technology to bring the capabilities and advantages of the cloud with IoT and AI to the remote and hard-to-reach rural areas. Such ambitious undertaking demanded open, scalable, and programmable network and edge gateways as these edge compute platforms may be deployed in SDN/NFV, AIoT/IIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things / Industrial Internet of Things) and separate 5G infrastructure.

    Various elements are involved when trying to deliver edge computing at remote areas and they are as followed:

    Data collection via connected IoT or IIoT devices
    Preliminary real-time data analysis via an IoT gateway
    Secondary real-time data analysis (AI or MV) via an edge computer
    Latency-free network transmission to private/public clouds

    Manufacturers monitor CNC machines mainly to keep track of their efficient work time and count the units produced. Additional monitoring tasks may also include keeping an eye on the machine’s operational status and looking for deficient and worn out parts that could lead to significant overhauls.

    A comprehensive CNC monitoring solution should leverage novel smart manufacturing technologies to improve these business processes and avoid significant maintenance expenses.

    This smart manufacturing solution, including IIoT data collection and edge intelligence, will ultimately improve monitoring efficiency and even add intelligence into the process.

    The first time a 3D-printed metal part was used on a commercial aircraft was back in 2014. At that time, the Airbus company produced a titanium bracket on a 3D printer and installed it on an Airbus test aircraft. Thanks to that successful rapid prototype created by Airbus, the entire industry begun to evolve.

    Ensuring reliable product quality in sensitive industries like aerospace is crucial. For example, in metal-based 3D printing, the entire process must be monitored from end-to-end. Keeping track of the stock material, the melt pool, the changes in temperature, object’s dimensions, etc. is vital to ensure quality. In this article we will discuss how Lanner Intelligent Edge platforms are used in remote monitoring solutions for 3D printers.

    In many cases, WiFi is still the preferred method for wireless LAN deployments, and it will still be for home networks.

    But when it comes to enterprise-grade networks, such as the manufacturing plant, which has a vast number of locations, connected field workers, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices, and applications, WiFi has many limitations.

    The lack of speed, coverage, security, and performance from WiFi networks deployed at large enterprises has opened the doors for the CBRS band and the Private LTE infrastructure.

    In this article, we will highlight six main reasons why CBRS is the right ingredient for Smart Manufacturing.
