The new standard for building global networks
Remote connections are more essential than ever. No one wants to spend time and money on traveling, nor is it possible in today’s times. When you can do the same tasks remotely and offer better service to your customers, companies are seeing the need for connectivity to be able to collect data and access their devices.
Common painpoints of building global networks
There are challenges that must be solved before digitalization can really live up to its promises and expectations (Morganstanley.com):
- Cyber security
- Lack of standardization
- Lack of skilled workers
- Legacy-installed base
- Significant upfront investments
- Data integrity
Questions about reliability, security and costs of the connection technologies used are hindering organizations from taking the next steps towards a digital leap forward. So far, companies have tackled the connectivity challenges by solving single network connection problems using tailored solutions. The problem with such a case-by-case approach is that it is time-consuming and expensive. Also, compatibility issues can make adding items to the system at a later stage problematic. As objects connect to the internet for the first time, they are challenging the traditional IT architectures and raising new questions about security and integration. Therefore, collaboration between IT and OT (operational technology) stakeholders is paramount.
Connect global networks both ways for collecting data and remote maintenance
Tosibox has automated secure connectivity and made it simple. It is a standardized way of building VPN connections based on a patented connection method. The configuration-free Plug & Go™ implementation easy to carry out even without special IT skills. The unique feature of TOSIBOX® technology is the two-way connectivity that brings the benefits of IP networking plus remote maintenance with one technology. The game-changing solution consists of globally patented point-to-point data flow between ends allowing for a secure connection and associated marriage between two modules. The communication is end-to-end encrypted and not decrypted at any point along the way. A third-party cloud service is not included, but you can choose your own cloud or server, wherever you want. Companies can collect data from their devices and then remotely connect back to perform service based on the analyzed data. This then allows for the use of standard OEM software available to configure, update and adjust on the edge for optimized applications.
