The OpenFog Reference Architecture: A baseline for interoperability in the IIoT cloud-to-things continuum

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

Fog computing concepts have been floating in the ether for some time now, but it seems that industry has been challenged to put the theoretical models behind the architecture to use in the real world. Recently, however, the OpenFog Consortium released the OpenFog Reference Architecture (RA), a foundational document that will enable interoperable semiconductors, systems, and software for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) stakeholders, industry-wide. In this roundtable interview, Dr. Maria Gorlatova, Associate Research…

Keysight Technologies

In a system or on a lab bench, proper instrument calibration reduces the chances of “false pass” or “false fail” test results. But not all calibrations are equal. Six key factors affect the quality, usefulness and cost of calibration: extent of testing, information provided, measurement uncertainty, calibration periodicity, service speed, and service packages. In Six [...]
