Arkessa adds secure global 4G IoT connectivity options for Siemens MindSphere

Press Release published by Arkessa, under Artificial Intelligence / Machine learning, Automation / Robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), Manufacturing

Arkessa, a leading M2M connectivity service provider, joins the MindSphere Partner Program as a gold partner and extends its support for Siemens’ products by adding encrypted 4G data global IoT connectivity services for MindSphere, the open IoT operating system from Siemens.

Arkessa now provides secure and encrypted 4G data communication for MindConnect, as well as the Ruggedcomm and Scalance product families, to enable remote access, predictive maintenance, asset optimisation and digital twin solutions. The cellular approach is the primary choice for outdoor and mobile assets such as transportation and utility infrastructure, and also enables deployment of MindSphere into manufacturing environments. Secure, resilient, wireless connectivity which does not compromise existing IT or OT infrastructure, enables a rapid and retro-fit capability, suitable for both new and legacy systems.

MindConnect delivers plug–and-play connectivity to the MindSphere operating system and enables machine builders and plant operators to connect their machines and physical infrastructures to a variety of cloud infrastructures. The MindSphere OS lets customers create industrial apps and digital services that can build business insights and help drive the performance and optimisation of assets in the field.

Paul Kaeley, SVP of Global Partner Ecosystem at Siemens PLM Software, says

The global connectivity services provided by Arkessa enhance the security and plug-and-play credentials of MindSphere. This is critical for our customers as it lets them focus on advanced automation solutions and delivering business value through predictive maintenance, energy data management services and asset optimisation of internationally distributed machines.

Andrew Orrock, CEO at Arkessa says

Siemens has an installed base of more than 100 million devices and we are excited to be working with them to enable customer development of vertical-specific analytical applications and digital twin capabilities which optimise machine performance and maintenance. MindSphere is paving the way to digital services including Manufacturing-as-a-Service, where it is the output of the machine which is purchased rather than the machine itself.
