Don't be confused!Let us guide you to understand the Industrial Internet and Industry 4.0

Date: 2022-08-04 13:55:42

With the emergence and popularization of the concepts of Industrial Internet and Industry 4.0, more and more people recognize these two words but often confuse them. Aren't they all proposed for intelligent manufacturing? Isn't it just the people who proposed it are different? Is there any difference? Today, let the editor take you to know more about the Industrial Internet and Industry 4.0 and how technologies such as the Internet of Things, 5G, Big Data Analysis, and Machine Learning help the construction and development of the two.

Industrial Internet

In 2012, General Electric formally proposed the concept of the Industrial Internet. It refers to integrating complex physical equipment with the network, using the obtained data and information to control and adjust the equipment, optimize the process, and build an integrated industrial system. 


The Industrial Internet does not simply replicate the Internet of Things, but integrates various acquisition and control sensors into the production process, collects data in an all-around way, turns each process and equipment into a data terminal, and conducts data analysis and mining. It not only realizes the connection between things but also the comprehensive interconnection of people, machines, and things in the industrial field.
It is difficult for traditional industrial wireless networks to meet the requirements of industrial Internet with large broadband, wide connections, and real-time scenarios. For example, the WiFi network used for AGV scheduling communication has small coverage and unstable performance, and there are security risks. The 5G network itself has the characteristics of large bandwidth, wide connection, and low latency, making it the best option for wireless networks to support industrial upgrades.


5G FWA is Fixed Wireless Access. Sun Telecom, which provides "systematic, end-to-end, one-stop"fiber optic total solutions and products for worldwide customers, believes that: FWA (Fiber+5G) is the most desirable use case for 5G.
5G FWA uses electromagnetic waves instead of cables as the signal transmission medium, avoiding the problems of trenching and wiring in traditional deployment methods. These provide more cost-effective and innovative services that enable factories and users in remote areas to use the high-speed real-time network. 5G will become the central nervous system of the factory in the future, bringing disruptive changes to industrial production.

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 was formally proposed in Germany in 2013. It is the fourth industrial revolution led by intelligent manufacturing. It makes full use of the combination of information communication technology and cyberspace virtual system to make the manufacturing industry intelligent. 

Industry 4.0 focuses more on manufacturing and production, using big data analysis, machine learning, cyber-physical systems, etc. to run through the entire industrial chain to build flexible smart factories. Industrial development has led to the emergence of typical database software systems that cannot handle huge data streams. Big data analysis has become the basis for the digitization of various businesses. It collects, transmits, analyzes, and uses large amounts of real-time data while generating information to improve intelligent processes. Ensure efficient and trouble-free execution of industrial production.
However, there are still issues of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity in the process of Industry 4.0, which affect the process of industrial development and need to be reasonably resolved. As a branch of artificial intelligence, machine learning can allow smart devices to learn and make decisions without manual programming through data collection and processing, model building and training, and adjustment of algorithms so as to automatically perform tasks.


The Industrial Internet or Industry 4.0 are all efforts to step into intelligent manufacturing. In this era of rapid technological progress, enterprises need to choose their technologies and methods to promote the development of the manufacturing economy.
