Accelerating Digital Transformation With Easy OPC UA Implementation

In our digital transformation blog post series, we explore the central role of OPC UA for the seamless integration of information technologies (IT) and operational technologies (OT). Let's take a closer look at why OPC UA is important for digital transformation and which key technologies use this powerful standard for seamless data exchange.

Easily Connect the Cloud to Siemens PLCs with Softing edgeConnector Modules

Softing has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft® Azure to offer industrial edge connectivity solutions that you can deploy from the AWS or Azure cloud. We show you how to quickly and securely connect machines, PLCs and devices to cloud-based Industrial IoT solutions in a typical brownfield project using our connectivity modules for the Industrial Edge.

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.

Explore Secure Integration Server: A Secure, Flexible OPC UA-Based IT/OT Integration Solution

Owing to the explosion of the Internet of Things, the number of OT/IT applications increases, and so too does network complexity. Having an abstraction interface can go a long way toward reducing this complexity. Our Secure Integration Server (SIS) is one such example that provides a layer that simplifies management between the OT and IT domains based on the OPC UA standard.

Realizing Modern IoT Applications Through Central and Secure Data Integration

For companies with global production sites, centralized secure data integration is the key factor for competitiveness, progress and safeguarding their existence. After all, the operating data from thousands of programmable logic controllers must be integrated, aggregated and securely processed - especially in view of future Industrial IoT applications. Softing offers professional and reliable solutions, as a case study from a customer shows.

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. 

It’s all about data security!

Secure data exchange between production and management levels is still something of a minefield, with many aspects and security issues needing to be negotiated. Middleware has since established itself as a key component in the pursuit of seamless integration of the OT and IT domains. The following post addresses the aspects of secure cross-company communication by looking at an OPC UA-based solution from Softing.

Industrial IoT Automation – Smart Data Integration With dataFEED Software Platform

Data integration and IoT or Industrie 4.0 have been fueling the market for many years and are finally on the verge of a breakthrough and success, because it is now possible to integrate and successfully use the incredible range of technologies and the vast amount of sensors, data formats and conceivable usage scenarios. The same can be said for the volume of data currently produced. In the "Internet of Things" or Industrie 4.0, a seamless data exchange between Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) is crucial for competitiveness and success. However, this is not the only decisive factor. Production processes, both in manufacturing and in the process industry, require continuous improvement in efficiency and performance - this can only be achieved in the future through innovative, reliable data integration.

Fast time-to-market for OPC UA in sensors, devices and controllers

OPC UA PubSub for IIoT: The new 1.04 version of the OPC Foundation specification now includes the pub/sub communication model which is a better fit for Industry 4.0 and IIoT implementation work than the client/server architecture defined in the previous OPC UA standard.
