We know that getting insight that is useful to your operation through the integration Industrial Internet of Things devices can be difficult, time-consuming and expensive. That's why we've dedicated ourselves to guiding others through to more cost-effective, efficient and secure outcomes. Check out our use cases below for more information.
Power Grid - Syslog
In a PowerGrid Substation network, our IoTConX solution seamlessly captures syslogs from various devices and applications. Using intelligent filtering algorithms, it identifies critical syslogs and transmits them in real-time to Splunk, a leading log management and analysis platform. By doing so, our solution enables proactive monitoring and analysis of system events, helping organizations quickly detect and respond to potential security threats, system failures, or performance issues. This integration between IoTConX and Splunk ensures that crucial syslogs are efficiently collected, consolidated, and analyzed, empowering businesses to make data-driven decisions and maintain a robust and secure IT infrastructure.
vNode Modbus to MQTT
In an industrial setting, our IoTConX solution effectively captures data from Modbus RTU devices. Utilizing vNode, our versatile protocol conversion tool, we seamlessly transform the data payload into a format compatible with MQTT. By doing so, we enable smooth integration and efficient communication between the Modbus RTU devices and an MQTT subscriber. This use case allows real-time data streaming with store and forward to prevent dataloss, facilitating centralized monitoring and control of industrial processes. With vNode, businesses can harness the power of MQTT to collect, analyze, and act upon data from Modbus RTU devices, enhancing operational efficiency, enabling predictive maintenance, and optimizing decision-making.
