Advantages, purpose and goals of a retrofit solution – Digitization with Orchestra
Orchestra Success Story:
Retrofit project with our partner INSYS Icom
Together with our partner INSYS Icom, a flexible, geographically independent infrastructure was created to network decentralized systems from 150 locations. During the successful retrofit, care was taken to take over existing legacy systems and to convert them to current standards for the new requirements. INSYS Icom is specialized in components and solutions for the secure communication of M2M and IoT applications. The connection of the decentralized system landscapes with the retrofit solution brings numerous digitization advantages:
Practical implementation of the retrofit solution
The implementation was based on the Orchestra juno Plug & Produce concept with the support of the INSYS Icom Gateway and the juno Edge Client. After the roll-out, it was thus possible to use juno as a data buffer in case of network interruptions. The Iiot solution juno thus serves as an intermediate module, a so-called middleware, which maps the data from the old protocol to the new one. The resulting preconfigured solution can quickly and easily preprocess raw data directly at the plant or machine at the respective location, aggregate it and make it available to the communication partners. Local processing and filtered forwarding of data to higher-level systems additionally reduce network traffic. This approach allows machine data to be integrated via standard protocols and makes secure remote maintenance available.
Advantages of the retrofit solution
Secure all the advantages that Industry 4.0 brings for you and your company by retrofitting and modernizing. The retrofit is just one possibility in addition to our many success stories, such as a successful SAP integration or modern data monitoring.
Safe into the future
