  • Connect OPC UA systems to OPC DA (Classic) systems, locally or over a network.
    • Enable OPC DA clients to read from OPC UA servers.
    • Enable OPC UA clients to read from OPC DA servers.
  • Establish secure tunnel/mirror connections between OT and IT networks.
  • Protect systems in the OT network from the outside world.
  • Connect to Cogent DataHub service for Azure, as well as embedded devices, for Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications.
