What is Operational Technology (OT)

Design Innovation and Network Architecture for the Future Internet
A technology, including networking technology, that addresses the needs of industrial applications, such as monitoring and control of industrial equipment. Such applications require very tight performance guarantees. OT is seen as a counterpart to IT (Information Technology), used by enterprises as part of their back-end office infrastructure that has less critical performance needs.

Industrial machine-type communications (e.g., industrial internet), emerging applications such as holographic type communications, IP mobile backhaul transport for 5G/B5G (beyond 5G) for ultra-reliable low latency communications and massive machine-type communications, emerging industry verticals such as driverless vehicles, and future networking use cases as called out by ITU-T's focus group on network 2030 all require new networking capabilities and services. This chapter introduces “New IP,” a new data communication protocol that extends packet networking with new capabilities to support future applications that go beyond the capabilities that are provided by internetworking protocol (IP) today. New IP is designed to allow the user to specify requirements, such as expectations for key performance indicators' (KPIs) service levels, and other guidance for packet processing and forwarding purposes. New IP is designed to interoperate with existing networks in a straightforward manner and thus to facilitate its incremental deployment that leverages existing investment.
