In this episode of The IoT Uplink, we look inside what an article released by GE's Intelligent Platforms Business has called the “brains of the Industrial Internet”—the Industrial PC, or IPC. These huge, rugged computers are responsible for storing and quickly analyzing big data and are able to survive extreme environments.
The article cites a recent study predicting that 50 billion machines will connect to the industrial internet by 2016. That’s a lot of data points, but the next generation of IPCs is up to the task. Find out more about the technology behind these machines.
