Connectivity Suite – Industrial Fleet Management

In the industrial fleet management, the production plants are often at different sites and operated by different customers. Establish access to the plant in maintenance or support cases is often time-consuming and costly on customer and operator side. Furthermore, connectivity between the plants cross-customer is difficult to control.

The Connectivity Suite provides condition monitoring to keep your network under surveillance and OTA configuration and updates to manage your plant remotely in any situation at any location without accessing the devices directly. Furthermore, the Connectivity Suite establishes a reliable and secure connection and separation of your plants within the configured networks by providing the following benefits:

Benefits

  • Benefit from automatic, repeatable and consistent deployments for complete plants at large scale to save time and costs.
  • Easy and fast integration of network devices into extensive networks to ensure clear and easy implementations at lowest cost.
  • Benefit from robust and secure communications between plant devices and server/cloud services to provide the best performance at best security.
  • Monitor your network infrastructure in real time to optimize the uptime of your plant.

The Connectivity Suite provides several interfaces to communicate and a highly scalable architecture to add networks and NetModule routers using it at on-Premises or as cloud-based installation. The Connectivity Suite allows to support up to 150 networks each running on a virtual VPN server. To communicate the Connectivity Suite provides several interfaces:

  • Machine to machine-based communication (M2M) based on a REST API
  • Human to machine interface (HMI) via browser-based web interface using different user roles to restrict access on different levels
  • VPN access as example in support cases to access the end devices in a secure communication via VPN servers

On the home server of the Connectivity Suite several applications are running for Over-the-Air (OTA) configuration, integration and monitoring of your NetModule routers.

Applications

The configuration management gives instant access to latest configuration of any device and enables OAT- configuration/updates. Software and configuration updates can be scheduled so that they’re executed automatically at the desired time. Bulk configuration of a complete machine fleet is possible. In support or maintenance cases a fast-remote access is possible.


The Connectivity Suite enables the user to create logical grouping (tenant) and separation of several network sites within one management platform. Netmodule routers can be easily integrated into an existing group. Connectivity Suite automates the management of secure communication between server, tenants and the devices (incl. end devices) using proven encryption techniques such as OpenVPN and IPsec.


The monitoring platform component continuously supervises the connection status of devices and networks. The overall status is part of the platform dashboard and allows reliable monitoring of the installed devices. Conditions monitoring of the Ethernet interface is possible. Faulty interfaces can be identified efficiently and provide therefore a fast troubleshooting.
