Empower Serial Device Visibility and Mobility to Optimize the Industrial IoT

Brea, California, Apr 15, 2016—The Internet of Things (IoT) enables data visibility from afar. In other words, connecting all of your “Things” to the Internet allows you to monitor, analyze, and act on data collected from many different devices—wherever the devices are located. However, before you can embrace the opportunities the Industrial IoT has to offer, you first need to identify a reliable solution for connecting your existing legacy serial devices to a network. Connecting serial devices to an Ethernet network is easier than ever with Moxa’s NPort brand of serial-to-Ethernet device servers.

Cementing Moxa’s position as the industry leader in serial connectivity, Moxa’s NPort serial device servers and MGate industrial Ethernet gateways feature MXview industrial Network Management software and the MXview ToGo mobile app, which allows mobile phone access to network status to free up manpower from the control center. With MXview and MXview ToGo, you’ll be able to reduce your decision-making time and optimize operational efficiency and productivity by monitoring your serial device networks in real time–anytime, anywhere.

Monitor Your Serial Device Networks–Anytime, Anywhere
In the past, network operators needed to stay in a control room to monitor the status of their networks. But in many operations, automation engineers are called upon to be on the move, making it difficult to quickly respond to changes in a network’s status. But with the development of mobile apps, network operators no longer need to be stuck in a control room to ensure reliable business operation. With the new MXview and MXview ToGo app, network administrators receive event notification pushed directly to their mobile phones, allowing them to instantly check the health of the network from their phone, including whether the network is operating normally, warnings have been issued, or a critical situation requires immediate attention.
