Softing Industrial launches an AWS Quick Start for its edgeConnector Siemens docker container application, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Quick Start automatically deploys edgeConnector Siemens and AWS IoT SiteWise in the AWS cloud. It demonstrates how to connect Siemens PLCs to the AWS cloud in a secure and scalable way.
The Softing edgeConnector Siemens Quick Start makes it easy for IT as well as for shop floor personnel to gain first-hand experience with a secure and highly scalable end-to-end solution for industrial IoT. The Quick Start offers a fast and flexible way to try out edgeConnector Siemens as a connectivity solution with AWS. It automates the deployment of Softing’s edgeConnector Siemens, a docker container application with gateway functionality, and AWS IoT SiteWise in the AWS cloud. A simulated Siemens S7-1500 PLC generates IoT sensor data that is sent to AWS via edgeConnector Siemens and visualized using AWS IoT SiteWise. This entire deployment on AWS takes no more than 10 minutes.
