Computational deployment patterns

The Industrial Internet encompasses many topologies of assets, and sensor and computational distributions. Traditional control systems typically disperse computational power close to the physical systems, in the network periphery, and are performed at the controller level. Traditional data centers perform centralized computations. The Industrial Internet requires a combination of both of these. Smart sensors and devices perform dispersed computations to enable localized control and decision making, while concentrated computation placed throughout the network supports higher-level decision making.

Network connectivity is critical for communication between the periphery and the concentrated capabilities. Concentrated ...
