Secure Communication for Industry 4.0
PLATTFORM PUBLICATION - With innovative ideas and approaches, Industry 4.0 finds brand new ways of cooperation – especially also at technical level. Plant, machinery and products interact, exchange data and keep in constant communication with each other.
It makes no difference whether a machine is communicating with another on the same shopfloor or with an installation in a factory on the other side of the world. This can only work, though, if technical communication mechanisms ensure that Industry 4.0 components can come into secure and interoperable contact with each other.
