IoT infrastructure in the industrial sector is the top priority of digitalization
23 MAY / 2019
From May 22 to May 24, the fourth "Digital Industry of Industrial Russia" (CIPR) conference was held in Kazan, dedicated to the development of end-to-end technologies in Russia.
The first day of the forum started with a discussion of IoT infrastructure in the industry. Igor Bevzyuk, CEO of 2050.digital, took part in the session and shared the company's experience in the implementation of projects in the IoT field.

He spoke about the practical aspects of creating an effective data management system at enterprises and prioritizing digitalization tasks. As the CEO of 2050.digital noted, today's top-priority points include availability or unavailability of data, their clearness and reliability, promptness of use and data security.

"The first thing we focused on concerning data handling is not just data receiving, but a model of their targeted use, based on business objectives," Igor Bevzyuk noted. "The ability to generate reliable data is of great importance. This is even more important in a situation where the human factor underlies the process of obtaining and analyzing the data.

The second aspect is data security. The railway infrastructure is a dual-purpose sector which raises extremely scrupulous demands to everything that happens with rolling stock, train crews, and power facilities. The third component is data-based predictive analytics intended for the transition to condition-based maintenance and repair."

According to CEO of 2050.digital, the main priorities of the industrial enterprises digitalization are the possibility of integrating the already implemented solutions with new ones, ensuring protection from external effects, personnel training, and adaptation of the production culture, as well as the customer's understanding of the desired effects from the digitalization.

Igor Bevzyuk cited the implementation of the Ctrl@Maintenance predictive analysis system in the Russian Railways locomotive stock as a successful example of digitalization. The project is implemented by the Clover Group (a member of the Ctrl2GO Group together with 2050.digital).

"Today, more than 7 thousand from 22.5 thousand locomotive sections are already equipped with special data collection devices," Igor Bevzyuk noted. "This allows us to significantly reduce the time for locomotive diagnostics and prepare all the inventory items (spare parts, tools, materials) and personnel needed for the work in advance. Thus, we reduce the downtime of locomotives being under repair and optimize internal business processes."

The vice-president of Rostelecom Boris Glazkov, a member of the board of directors of Megafon PJSC Anna Serebryannikova, the head of the special working group "Industrial Internet" of ANO "Digital Economy" Roman Yakovlev, the director of the "Information Infrastructure" direction of ANO "Digital Economy" Dmitry Markov, and others also participated in the discussion.

During the discussion, the speakers touched upon the introduction of common analytical platforms, advances in creating infrastructure for 5G networks, application of end-to-end technologies in the industrial Internet of Things and overcoming barriers in big data analysis.

2050.digital is a member of the Ctrl2GO Group of companies, which brings together prospective products and solutions in the field of the advanced technologies of Industry 4.0. The group develops, implements, and replicates intelligent high-tech solutions capable of providing competitive advantages for businesses in the global market.
