Industrial IoT Gateways SIMATIC CloudConnect 7
Smartly connecting existing plants
Cloud applications are an important prerequisite for utilizing the benefits of digitalization in an industrial setting. With the Industrial IoT Gateways SIMATIC CloudConnect 7, even existing plants can be easily connected to a wide variety of cloud platforms that support the standardized MQTT protocol, such as to the MindSphere.

Simple data transfer to all common cloud platformsThe Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CloudConnect 7 makes it possible to read data easily and reliably from S7-based devices and transfers them via the standardized MQTT protocol (according to OASIS-Standard V3.1/3.1.1) to different Cloud platforms like MindSphere, Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud. The data management for existing S7 controllers can continue to be imported for quick and easy configuration.
The connection to cloud systems via Internet or mobile communication can either be made via an existing network infrastructure or can be directly realized through the combination with the industrial routers SCALANCE M.
In addition, the data read from lower-level S7 stations by means of SIMATIC CloudConnect 7 can be made available as OPC UA variables (server). This enables standardized data exchange, for example with MES systems or HMI and third-party controllers.
Connection to cloud systems via Industrial Ethernet interface
The Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CC712 allows the connection of one SIMATIC S7-300 or S7-400 via Industrial Ethernet by means of S7 protocol. Additionally it enables the connection of field devices with OPC UA server Interface as OPC UA client.
Connection to cloud systems via Industrial Ethernet or PROFIBUS/MPI interface
The Industrial IoT Gateway SIMATIC CC716 supports the connection of up to seven SIMATIC S7 controllers via Industrial Ethernet or PROFIBUS/MPI interface. Additionally it enables the connection of field devices with OPC UA server Interface as OPC UA client.
CP 1545-1 with CloudConnect functionality
The CP 1545-1 with CloudConnect functionality enables easy and reliable transfer of all IoT data from the SIMATIC S7-1500 to MindSphere or other Cloud solutions – e.g. Microsoft Azure or IBM Cloud – which support the standardized MQTT protocol.
RUGGEDCOM RX1400 with CloudConnect
This Plug&Play router is perfect for use in harsh environments. Its multi-functionality supports a large number of network technologies – WLAN, Ethernet, serial, and mobile communication.
SCALANCE M Industrial Routers
The mobile wireless routers as well as routers for wired communication have been proven in a variety of applications that require industrial remote access, such as telecontrol, teleservice, and much more.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
Professional support for future-proof communications networks
First-class network components will not create a first-class industrial communications network on their own. A thorough understanding of network designs is at least as important. You get both when you deal with us and our certified Solution Partners.
