To connect the IPS Cloud platform to the field controllers, a dedicated router is provided; which creates a secure connection via the Internet. This connection can be made using a wired, wifi, or 4G network. Protection systems can range from the creation of a VPN (virtual private network) tunnel to the use of communication protocols that allow keeping the communication ports closed in inbound and lightening the amount of traffic, like MQTT.
All devices connected via IP protocol to the LAN network of the IPS router are accessible from the platform.
The IPS router will be configured to adapt to the existing network, without requiring any changes to the customer. The device can be used with HTTP proxy also with authentication.
