Visitors to Moxa’s SPS stand will discover how reliable connectivity between sensor and cloud can maximize the potential of OT data in digital transformation projects.

As a leader in industrial networking and communications, Moxa will set the tone for advancing industrial digital transformation at SPS 2021 (23-25 November, Nuremberg, Germany). From stand 231 in hall 9, the company will show how its IIoT solutions ensure secure connectivity and computing between sensor and cloud, helping customers to optimize their digitalization journey.

At present there is a revolution taking place in OT (operational technology) data in order to facilitate industry’s digital transformation. However, due to the exceedingly large OT data sets that need collecting from industrial assets, around 90% of enterprises get stuck at this stage. Moxa’s experience reveals there are four challenges that must be overcome in order for companies to avoid transmitting unusable OT data to an IT system, namely the successful acquisition, preparation, transmission and security of OT data.

For instance, how is it possible to simplify data acquisition, particularly in an industrial world littered with legacy systems such as controllers and data silos? As for data preparation, how can IT systems analyze OT data directly without any context, and how is it possible to achieve true intelligence with slow reaction times? A further challenge relates to data transmission and avoiding the influence of environmental factors. In addition, how can companies ensure that the control data remains top priority as the need for more diverse and real-time data becomes more prevalent? Find out the answers to all of these questions by visiting the Moxa stand at SPS.

Data security is another massive challenge. At the exhibition, Moxa will demonstrate how companies can strengthen industrial cybersecurity and adopt a ‘defense in depth’ approach. The company’s solutions in this area help to unite industrial networks and security, integrate OT/IT perspectives on network protection, and detect and mitigate cyber threats for system integrity.

The value Moxa brings with its connectivity infrastructure solutions is the building of reliable and secure networks that connect all the requirements necessary for successful automation. As a result, it is possible to improve productivity and efficiency in industrial applications that include smart rail, smart grid, intelligent transportation, smart manufacturing, oil and gas, and marine.

The company achieves this highly desirable outcome by collaborating with customers and renowned partners to transform their unique ideas into feasible network solutions. The company works with cloud, software and sensor partners to build a reliable and secure IIoT application, end to end. Moxa IIoT projects are easy, fast and scalable, with a strategy built on two core principles: IIoT projects can only be successful if results are achieved quickly with limited effort; and projects must be designed with the end in mind (large-scale roll-out).

For Moxa, IIoT means making it easy for customers to capture, clean and use data from industrial assets. To illustrate its partner-based approach, the company will stage a live demonstration at SPS. This real life showcase is based on Moxa’s IIoT demo kit, incorporating TeamViewer for remote access, visualization and augmented reality, and Crosser for edge analytics and data connectivity. Be sure to call by the stand to see the demonstration in person.

Adding further visitor value to the SPS experience, Moxa will broadcast expert IIoT webinars from its stand at 11:00 on all three days of the exhibition. Topics will include analytics, machine learning, remote monitoring, and control and maintenance. The webinars will also stream live on Moxa’s event platform.

Of course, SPS visitors are also invited to speak directly with Moxa’s team of friendly expert professionals about their specific applications and challenges. Plenty of knowledge and expertise will be on-hand at the show. With over 30 years of experience in connectivity for industrial automation, Moxa has reliably and securely connected more than 71 million devices worldwide.
