Getting Started with Industrial Remote Communication

  • Entry
This entry gives you an overview sorted by topic with links to the main entries dealing with Industrial Remote Communication in the Siemens Industry Online Support.


Industrial Remote Communication is the remote access to plants and machines in industry and associated sectors that are located elsewhere. The transport media can be of all sorts ranging from private local networks to public heterogeneous networks.

The standard tasks listed below must be reliably and securely performed remotely via these networks:

  • Reporting of plant statuses to higher-level systems or mobile service units
  • Diagnostics of systems
  • Control and visualization of processes

Siemens provides components and entire systems to achieve this reliably. Here you can go directly to the main entries dealing with this topic in the Industry Online Support.
