Siemens makes use of its Vxlan transmission technology to run the Profinet protocol in real time via a private 5G network. A central control system for multiple mobile participants also helps to reduce energy and maintenance costs.
Siemens enables the transmission of Profinet IO via a private 5G network, which allows data to be transmitted in real time for industrial applications. This is made possible by the Vxlan (Virtual Extensible Lan) transmission technology in the Scalance 5G routers and security appliances from the company. Vxlan embeds the Profinet IO protocol, which is transmitted in Layer 2, into Layer 3 packets, which allows them to be transmitted across network boundaries. Since Layer 2 communication now takes place via 5G, a central controller can communicate with decentralized I/O modules on mobile devices such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs) via Profinet in a private 5G network and no local controls have to be used on the individual AGVs. This saves costs and reduces maintenance, states the firm.
At Hannover Messe, the company will also be showcasing the connection of automated guided vehicles via 5G in a prototype of a private industrial standalone 5G network. Mobile participants in production facilities, such as Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in intralogistics and mobile robots increase flexibility in production and require reliable wireless communication for smooth and safe operation.
With the Scalance Mum853-1, the firm is exhibiting its industrial 5G router for the control cabinet at the trade fair. The device connects local industrial applications with public 5G and 4G (LTE) mobile networks. With the router, plants, machines, controls and other industrial devices can be monitored and maintained remotely via a public mobile network at high data rates, adds the company. In addition, the device can be integrated into private 5G networks. The solution thus enables trend-setting applications such as mobile robots in production or autonomous vehicles in logistics.
