SINEMA Remote Connect – Overview

Easy, convenient, and secure

SINEMA Remote Connect – the management platform for remote networks – is a server application that enables the simple management of tunnel connections (VPN) between headquarters, service technicians, and installed machines or plants.

Establishing the connection for secured remote access is very easy. The service technician and the machine to be serviced establish separate connections to a SINEMA Remote Connect server, where the identity of the participants is determined by exchanging certificates. Only then is remote access to the machine granted. All licenses and the software of the connected clients are managed centrally. A REST-API enables the automation of regularly performed tasks and facilitates the management of large installations.


The connection to SINEMA Remote Connect can be established via wireless communication, DSL, or existing private network structures. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of SCALANCE industrial routers for connecting to remote networks.
