The IIoT platform with the World Wide Heartbeat

The IIoT platform Big-LinX® from ADS-TEC Industrial IT is a versatile service & maintenance tool for the remote maintenance of machines and systems in industrial environments. A special feature of the ADS-TEC solution is the World Wide Heartbeat. This communication protocol developed by ADS-TEC enables IIoT data of connected plants and machines to be sent to the Big-LinX® server and stored there in the respective database - without a VPN connection. "WWH uses an HTTPs for communication that ensures authentication by means of a software certificate or smartcard. Monitoring the machine and sending the data to Big-LinX® is done via a secure data push," adds Marc Schmierer. These innovations, in combination with the firewall developed in-house, ensure that the machine network is securely protected, while making access by unauthorised persons virtually impossible.
