Information Modeling

The overall objective of information modeling is to provide a standardized and unified way of accessing operational data from different assets.

Objective

The overall objective of information modeling is to provide a standardized and unified way of accessing operational data from different assets via enterprise systems – not only standardized on protocol, but also standardized on data semantics. This can be especially challenging in existing installations where both non-standard protocols and unplanned- or non-standard semantics (information models) can be present.

Due to the importance of having a unified way of accessing data when building effective IIoT applications, the Apis IOT Gateway can also be considered as a platform to quickly and easily build IIoT applications.

The information modeling capabilities are built on open standards from OPC Foundation. More information on the OPC UA protocol is available from the OPC Foundation at https://opcfoundation.org/about/opc-technologies/opc-ua/

Features

Some highlights of the APIS IOT Gateway are:

  • Enterprise wide access to all operational data
  • Unified and multiple semantic model exposure
  • Complete IIoT-enabling platform with Cloud connectivity
  • Premium storage rates and capacity
  • Robust and field-proven
  • Numerous connectivity options, both inbound and outbound
  • Replication and federation capabilities

APIS OPC UA Gateway is a component based architecture that will serve various interoperability purposes with
various compositions. Download our Whitepaper below for more information.
