Softing: Industrial IoT starter kit available now

Softing Industrial presents the Industrial IoT Starter Kit, a new gateway for industrial IoT solutions. The gateway offers pre-integration with Microsoft Azure Connected Factory and full flexibility based on the OPC UA interoperability standard.

Softing’s new Industrial IoT Starter Kit bundles HPE’s GL20 IoT Gateway, Softing’s proven dataFEED OPC Suite, Microsoft Azure IoT Edge components OPC Proxy and OPC Publisher, and a three-year support contract into a single product. Key features include connectivity for a broad range of PLC and sensor interfaces, and seamless integration with Microsoft Azure Connected Factory. A deployment of the Starter Kit does not require any changes in the customer’s automation network.

Users benefit from reduced efforts for system integration and configuration – a first secure, industrial-grade end-to-end solution in production environments is usually available within less than a day – as well as full flexibility and investment protection based on relevant standards such as OPC UA. For example, it is possible to deploy edge analytics on the gateway, or to connect several client applications in parallel. End customers get started quickly, and can modify and expand their IoT solution as they learn more.

The Industrial IoT Starter Kit is Azure certified and commercially available now. First kits have been sold to IT system integrators and to end customers in the manufacturing industry.
