VPN Based Remote Factory LAN Monitoring

VPN Based Remote Factory LAN Monitoring

Smart factory refers to strengthen information management and enhanced services by big data, Internet of Things and other technologies, formulate and arrange reasonable and effective production plans and strategies. In the production process of large enterprises, it often involves cross-factory and cross-region equipment maintenance, long distance source localization and other scenarios. Hence, virtual private network technology is essential to ensure the data security.

 
Overview
Smart factory refers to strengthen information management and enhanced services by big data, Internet of Things and other technologies, formulate and arrange reasonable and effective production plans and strategies. In the production process of large enterprises, it often involves cross-factory and cross-region equipment maintenance, long distance source localization and other scenarios. Hence, virtual private network technology is essential to ensure the data security.
 
Challenges
In the scenario of smart manufacturing, the management of the machines has evolved from passive response to on-demand remote monitoring and control. But there are some challenges standing in front of the customer:
Great amount of public IP address is needed for the gateway increase the ISP service cost.
Lack of encryption leads to unsafe data transmission .
High security authentication method is required for engineers to access into the factory LAN.
All above makes Hongdian’s VPN based remote connection the most suitable choice.
 
Topology
 
Solutions
Hongdian Corporation is a global leading
IoT/M2M connectivity solutions expert.
Hongdian X2/A50M router could establish a secure VPN tunnel with the VPN server from the remote LAN, which could avoid the cost for the public IP address assignment.
Engineers will be able to connect directly from their laptop to the remote factory LAN from anywhere, only need to use a VPN client software to connect to the VPN server.
With multiple industrial protocol integrated, X2/A50M acts as a powerful gateway to help the engineer to retrieve data from different kind of devices connected to the router.
 
Key Benefit
Secure and flexible VPN connection
Various of VPN protocols supported, includes IPsec VPN, OpenVPN, PPTP/L2TP, DMVPN, GRE. Data flow will be encrypted with advanced algorithms when being transmitted on the internet
No public IP required
Outbound connection from router to the VPN server, providing on-demand easy remote access to the router without needing multiple public IP for each router.
Business/Factory flow division
Ensuring the flow isolation and data security for different departments. The business data stream is isolated from the control and monitoring stream of the factory system. Avoiding any network problem occurs in the business system from spreading to the factory system and vice versa.
Authentication management
VPN server act as an agent to transparently forward the encrypted data while at the same time manage all the user’s authentication, any login behavior will be recorded on the platform.
