Wherever mission-critical real-time data is used, the Cogent DataHub® can be found―collecting, aggregating, integrating, logging, and displaying it. System integrators and plant engineers worldwide rely on the secure and robust performance of the DataHub in systems as disparate as building management, chemical production, satellite design, boiler monitoring, tire manufacturing, security system integration, railyard switching, stock trading, telescope control, and water resource management.
From seasoned professional engineers working at some of the world’s largest and most prestigious system integration and engineering companies, to graduate students, newly-hired trainees, and one-man SI companies who are just starting out, all agree that the DataHub “just works.” They all find it easy to use, helpful for them to quickly get up to speed, reliable under often diverse or extreme conditions, and well supported when the occasional question arises.
Secure by design
With the advent of the Industrial IoT, DataHub technology can be found at every level, supporting secure, real-time data communications. The DataHub itself provides a link between remote devices, in-plant systems, and the cloud. The Skkynet ETK (Embedded Toolkit) puts DataHub technology onto embedded devices, enabling them to make secure, outbound connections to the DataHub or SkkyHub. The SkkyHub service adapts DataHub functionality for the cloud, conveying data between connected systems in real time. Working seamlessly together, the ETK, DataHub, and SkkyHub form a secure-by-design architecture that uses no VPN and keeps all firewalls closed, capable of processing over 50,000 data changes per second at speeds just milliseconds over Internet latencies.
Water Pump Stations:Remote pump stations were connected using the Cogent DataHub in a multi-billion-dollar upgrade to the water supply system of a major North American city.
High-Security Process Monitoring:Two DataHub tunnels support authorized access to data at a high-security facility, so operators can work with the control system remotely, in real time.
Mars Mission Prep: A North American mining company is using the Cogent DataHub to help control a drill that will be used on future missions to the moon and Mars.
Port Operations: At a major European port, DataHub WebView displays crane control data to workers on board ship or at the pier, as well as to port operations staff.
