Make Your OT, IT, IIoT Protocol Interoperability Easier for Industry 4.0

A central consideration and challenge in achieving a connected smart factory is protocol division. Depending on the specific operation, system integrators may encounter numerous disparate automation protocols that must be connected to achieve the operational goals or optimization goals. The OT world encompasses MES (manufacturing execution systems), SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), PLCs, meters, valves, sensors and motors, etc. The most common protocols are PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, and Modbus. IT systems include an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system that mostly uses SNMP, HTTP, SOAP, XML protocols. The IIoT and industry 4.0 application requires the connection of many devices and systems to collect and share the vast amount of high-quality data across OT and IT platforms. The mainstream protocols for the adoption of the IIoT or Industry 4.0 are MQTT, AMQP, and CoAP. Moxa is one of the few product manufacturers and solution providers that offer a comprehensive product portfolio that makes the interoperability of OT, IT, and IIoT protocols straightforward.

Quick Implementation Across Heterogeneous Networks

The growing complexity of operations processes has become a major challenge for smart manufacturing companies. Installation and setup require more time to plan the architecture and perform device commissioning. Moxa’s easy-to-implement solutions eliminate these prerequisites that usually frustrate programmers, IT technicians, and field engineers, streamlining configuration and deployment.

Increased Situational Awareness Between the Field Sites and Control Room

Situational awareness is very important for operators in both the field and control room in order to ensure continuous production and prevent abnormal situations. However, to capture abnormal events on the shop floor and then interpret the information about these perceived events in real time is quite challenging. Moxa is one of the few solution providers that provide easy integration between OT and IT system networks.
