IIoT and Industrial Edge: From Concept to Implementation

What does Industrial Edge mean? What role does it play within an IIoT architecture? And how do cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and open source container tools like Kubernetes complement this architecture and help companies improve their processes? Our blog answers these questions and shows three projects in different stages of realization.

New options with container applications

Container applications open up new possibilities for use in automation technology with many advantages. edgeConnector products from Softing’s dataFEED family offer state-of-the-art access to process data in SIMATIC S7, SINUMERIK 840D and Modbus TCP controllers. They are using a Docker container technology, enabling customers to choose between a conventional hardware gateway, middleware or a Docker container application when implementing their Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications.

The evolution of the Gateways

When it comes to expanding and operating innovative IoT solutions, IT architectures have a key role to play. What architectural issues arise at the interface between IT and OT, and how does this interface relate to 'edge' and 'cloud'?  If you take these questions into account during planning you can fully exploit the potential of software, IT and innovative algorithms and make your production more efficient.
