Over 200 executives attended the various conferences held by Telefónica in Murcia and Valencia, where the latest advances in IoT and robotics were presented
Trends in the smart industry, developments in the sensors and IoT (Internet of things) sector, digitalization of the manufacturing plant and robotization focused on production. These were the main topics addressed by Telefónica in the business conferences ‘Industry 4.0, the Smart Industry’ that were held in Murcia and Valencia earlier this week.
In them, about 100 companies experienced first-hand the news and trends of the sector. Geprom, as a company of reference in the sector, was in charge of presenting the different reasons and ways to digitize the production plant. Telefónica spoke about the strategic side and about security, and Asti, who also collaborated on the conferences, addressed the part related to robotization. Telefónica also dedicated part of the day to network security, and they resolved the main questions about vulnerability, remote access, surveillance and information encryption.
In the last two years, according to Telefónica figures, digitalization in the industry has grown by 10%, while in the transport sector it has grown by 15% and 8% in the energy sector. IoT is imposing itself as one of the keys to the future in all sectors, in fact, it is expected that three out of four companies adopt this technology in the next five years to compete. Thus, taking into account the needs of the attendees, the conferences addressed solutions such as monitoring and plant processes, location and traceability of assets, the connected worker, energy management and telemetry and connected final product.
According to Telefónica experts, the digital environment in which economic activities take place requires new defence strategies, in which the executive must anticipate cybercriminals. In this sense, they explained the main tools they can count on depending on the sector and the activity.
