Virtual Environments:

Communication networks distributed over a wide geographical area – such as those used for smart grids or in traffic management – are often limited to small bandwidths or expensive public networks. Now information can be processed on-site in a virtual environment in the router, thus making room for more devices on the network – a key aspect of the the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Creating a highly reliable and efficient processing environment virtually anywhere to run local monitoring and data analysis applications is easy and cost effective with the new RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 virtual processing engine.

Ideally suited for numerous industries, especially those requiring rugged hardware and reliable communications, the RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 virtual environment in the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 router provides robust network stability and efficiency, allowing you to take your intelligence to the edge.

Features include:
  • Robust, cost-effective platform solution for 3rd party applications
  • Applications can be used to distribute intelligence throughout the network
  • Integrated API suite for multi-protocol device communication
  • Supports standard Linux-based development platforms

Description


Until now, on-site data processing required the installation of separate hardware in addition to the routers. The RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 is a software that partitions off a separate virtual environment in the router where users can install a Linux operating system and load their own self-generated programs or those of service providers.The partitions ensure that the programs never interfere with actual router operation – not even if the programs malfunction and, for example, take up too much processor power. The virtual environment enables an application to connect via all network interfaces on the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 router – LTE, copper, fiber-optic – and with serial transmission interfaces. Special application interfaces also enable communication with devices integrated into SCADA systems for control and monitoring purposes.This new software is part of the trend toward communication networks with distributed computing capacities in which, as much as possible, data is processed on site rather than centrally. Experts are referring to “fog” or “edge computing.” Such technologies are a key requirement for integrating a growing number of devices into an ever more distributed Industrial Internet of Things and operating them efficiently.Functions & benefits at a glance:

Robust, cost-effective platform solution for 3rd party applications

  • Eliminates hardware NRE costs for application developers
  • Shortens time to market of new applications

Applications can be used to distribute intelligence throughout the network

  • Reduces need for operational data collection and centralized storage
  • Increases network stability through reduced control system latency

Integrated API suite for multi-protocol device communication

  • Minimizes need for extensive SCADA protocol knowledge and experience to communicate with hosts and devices

Supports standard Linux-based development platforms

  • Requires no special tool sets or training by developers
  • Ensures network and application management tool consistency
