Industrial Edge Computing, i.e. the processing of process and machine data close to the source, close to devices in automation networks, is becoming increasingly important as part of innovative IoT solutions.
In the first part of the webinar, Siemens introduces the topic of Industrial Edge Computing and its basic concepts. You will learn how Industrial IoT solutions, for example for dashboarding or energy management, can be implemented with the Siemens Industrial Edge, why machine connectivity is relevant for this, and what benefits the open ecosystem of the Siemens Industrial Edge offers customers.
In the second part of the webinar, Softing explains how machine connectivity can be realized for Industrial IoT solutions. As a partner of Siemens, Softing Industrial develops connectivity products specifically for the Siemens Industrial Edge. Using a live demo of Softing‘s edgePlug Fanuc product, users will learn how machine data from third-party devices can be integrated into the Siemens Industrial Edge.

Efficient access to machine and process data is of central importance for both traditional shopfloor applications and innovative IoT solutions. Plant manufacturers, operators, and maintenance personnel are therefore faced with the challenge of ensuring data availability.
However, especially in plants with old controllers, data acquisition can be very difficult. This is where the OPC UA standard has proven to be the best choice due to its independence from operating systems, protocols, and drivers. Using Siemens S5 and S7 controllers as examples, we will present solutions in the webinar that can be used to read data easily. We will also show you how this data can be made available for various applications via standardized interfaces such as OPC UA and MQTT.

Proof of concepts (PoCs) for innovative IoT solutions exist in large numbers. However, a broad roll-out of these solutions is still a major challenge for many. For users from shopfloor IT, automation technology and related areas, this raises the question of how they can implement and operate modern IoT solutions in a simple and scalable way.
The joint webinar by Softing Industrial and Portainer.io provides answers to this question and shows solution concepts.

This webinar focuses on the impact of the Microsoft DCOM security patch on March 14, 2023, on OPC Classic communication. The following topics are covered:
Efficient access to machine and process data is of central importance for traditional shopfloor applications as well as for innovative IoT solutions. In existing plants, such data is often available in XML files. The latest version of the dataFEED OPC Suite Extended from Softing Industrial - a software solution for OPC communication and IoT cloud connectivity - supports access to data in XML files, making them available via standardized interfaces (including OPC UA and MQTT).
The webinar uses a practical example and a live demo to show:
The OPC UA communication standard plays an important role at the interface between OT and IT. Modern controllers and field devices now integrate an OPC UA server. Newer IoT applications usually include an OPC UA client to access data from automation networks. Moreover, OPC UA information models offer extensive possibilities to efficiently solve data integration across sites and manufacturers.
This webinar is intended for people, both with OT and IT backgrounds, who want to gain a basic technical understanding of the OPC UA standard.
