Siemens Industrial Communication Solutions
Without industrial communication, complex tasks like controlling machines and entire production lines, monitoring state-of-the-art transportation systems or managing power distribution would be impossible. The digital transformation would also be impossible without powerful communication solutions. The reliable, secure networking of machines and plants based on professional planning and realization using SCALANCE, RUGGEDCOM and SIMATIC NET network components provides the basis for all this to happen.
Industrial Communications & Networking - Product Portfolio
The basis for efficient automation: with increasing digitalization, the requirements on industrial communications networks are rising continually. Powerful, integrated, and more and more real-time capable communications networks are required. Industrial Ethernet is the tried-and-tested technology that can meet these challenges – including the Ethernet-based standard TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking) in the future.
Open Platform Communications - Unified Architecture
When it comes to networking and standardization or cybersecurity – the requirements for industrial networks are increasing at an ever-faster pace. In this problematic area, the open, Ethernet-based OPC UA (Open Platform Communications – Unified Architecture) communication standard is experiencing rapid growth. With its integrated security mechanisms, vendor- and platform-independent OPC UA provides the best foundation conditions for digitalization.
Industrial Wireless Communication
Wireless communication offers many possibilities in the industry for particularly flexible and efficient automation solutions. We offer a comprehensive range of products, solutions and services covering the entire industrial wireless communication spectrum from Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) to WiMAX and WirelessHART. Whether your applications include logistics or port facilities, automobile manufacturing or amusement parks, our components for wireless communication cover various indoor as well as outdoor applications, even under the toughest conditions.
With RUGGEDCOM, the name speaks for itself. RUGGEDCOM products set new standards for quality and reliability for communication networks deployed in harsh environments. Covering an extremely wide temperature range, they offer zero-packet-loss technology under high electromagnetic interference and enhanced Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (eRSTP™) for ultra-high-speed network fault recovery.
Industrial Remote Communication
Industrial plants are frequently widely spread apart – sometimes even across countries and borders. Siemens offers proven solutions for industrial remote access in public infrastructure, the manufacturing and the process industries, for both telecontrol and teleservice applications. For connecting plants distributed around the world, we offer a broad spectrum of industrial routers, both for wired and wireless access to private and public networks (remote networks). This also allows further remote applications such as video surveillance, condition monitoring, and smart grid applications.
Network Management & Diagnostics
The demands placed on industrial communication networks are extremely high and form the basis for digital enterprises. Data must be transferred reliably from the field level up to cloud-based systems. Successful network management and effective network diagnostics require first-rate hardware components as well as sophisticated software. The Network Management System SINEC NMS is perfectly equipped for handling more and more complex network structures in an increasingly digital world..
