Transparent data for Industry 4.0 connectivity with PROFIBUS!

While plants in discrete and process manufacturing often comprise both legacy and new equipment, they still need to be controlled and managed effectively. This requires a modern communication architecture that is able to aggregate their heterogeneous data. smartLink from Softing facilitates interface-neutral data integration in complex production systems.

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.
