With the increased adoption of high power fiber laser for various industrial applications, the downtime and the reliability of fiber lasers become more and more important. Here we present our approach toward a more reliable and more intelligent laser source for industrial applications: the SMAT fiber laser with the extensive sensor network and multi-level protection mechanism, the mobile connection and the mobile App, and the Smart Cloud. The proposed framework is the first IoT (Internet of Things) approach integrated in an industrial laser not only prolongs the reliability of an industrial laser but open up enormous potential for value-adding services by gathering and analyzing the Big data from the connected SMAT lasers.
