Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. will demonstrate the latest release candidate of the Cogent DataHub connecting via SkkyHub to the newest Renesas Synergy Platform at the ARC Industry Forum on February 6-9 in Orlando, Florida. The hands-on IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) demo will let users interact securely with a live embedded system from their mobile devices over OPC UA, the recommended protocol for Industry 4.0.

“People need to see something working, and interact with it, to truly understand what we mean by an end-to-end IIoT solution,” said Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet. “This demo brings the IIoT out of the realm of speculation and into the domain of practical solutions that the C-level executives who attend the ARC Industry Forum expect to see.”

The ARC Industry Forum brings together CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, VPs, directors and managers of some of the largest industrial companies in the world. This year’s focus on the IIoT focuses on the convergence of IT, OT (operations technology), and ET (engineering technology) and explores the move “from Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concepts to real IIoT products, solutions, and services.”

The Skkynet technology being showcased includes the latest version of the Cogent DataHub, which fully integrates OPC UA and other industrial protocols to support OPC networking, OPC server-server bridging, aggregation, data logging, redundancy, and web-based HMI. Capable of handling over 50,000 data changes per second, the DataHub is also seamlessly integrated with Skkynet’s SkkyHub and ETK for secure, end-to-end Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 connectivity.

The demo also includes the Renesas Synergy Platform running the Skkynet Embedded Toolkit (ETK), which allows embedded devices to make a secure connection to the Cogent DataHub or SkkyHub, enabling real-time, bidirectional IoT data flow. Skkynet’s SkkyHub service connects to the ETK and the Cogent DataHub to securely network live data in real time from any location. It enables bidirectional IoT-based supervisory control, integration and sharing of data with multiple users. Secure by design, the service requires no VPN, no open firewall ports, no special programming, and no additional hardware.
