Under the motto ‘Industry 4.0 Requires: Secure Networks 4.0’, LANCOM will be showing how state-of-the-art networking concepts, such as software-defined networking (SDN), lay the foundations for efficient digitalisation of industrial manufacturing. The LANCOM booth, at Hannover Messe 2019, will also showcase the company’s comprehensive hardware portfolio for WAN, LAN, WLAN, digital signage and IoT, and, for the first time at a trade fair, the LANCOM IAP-4G+ LTE router for harsh environments.
With manufacturing processes becoming more and more connected, the underlying infrastructure turns into a mission-critical factor for enterprises. Secure networks are the prerequisite for the digital transformation of production, value and supply chains and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With its presence at the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, LANCOM is addressing this development with an innovative portfolio of networking solutions.
LANCOM offers enterprises an agile network infrastructure that adapts dynamically to changing requirements. Network design and management are highly automated by the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC). When it comes to network security, the integrated networking and security solutions made in Germany also mean that organisations benefit from effective protection from a single source.
A further highlight at the trade fair will be the extended LANCOM IoT portfolio. The recently launched Wi-Fi 5 WLAN access point LANCOM LN-830U, enables easy integration of a wide range of IoT devices via USB sticks for numerous IoT wireless standards. More transparency, efficiency and overview in merchandise logistics are provided by cutting-edge digital signage solutions based on wireless e-paper technology, which digitalise all processes that were previously paper-based. By driving the IoT readiness of its components, LANCOM supports the digital transformation of industrial manufacturing processes enabling the ‘smart factory’.
The LTE router enables reliable internet in warehouses, logistics and covered outdoor areas that do not have a wired internet connection. Its robust all-metal housing is highly dust-proof and suitable for temperatures from -20°C through 50°C. With integrated IPSec VPN functionality and an in-built LTE Advanced Modem for up to 300 Mbps, the device provides professional sites connectivity through the cellular network and fast data transfer – to link up automated systems, machines and surveillance equipment.
