Integrate cybersecurity software to protect your network
The new RUGGEDCOM APE1808 excels in hosting a range of applications from multiple solution partners. These include intrusion detection software, next generation firewalls, network log and load processors, and other customer developed purpose-built applications. RUGGEDCOM APE1808 can also analyze data at the source - without the need to install an external industrial PC.
The use of a virtual machine also means you can run both old software in addition to new and secure operating systems on RUGGEDCOM APE1808 – thus extending the life of your obsolete and unsupported software.
Bring Edge Computing into your industrial network
RUGGEDCOM APE1808 for the RUGGEDCOM RX1500 Multi-Service Platform offers a flexible and future-proof way to integrate edge computing into mission-critical networks in harsh environments. With its enhanced feature-set, the APE1808 can host Siemens or third-party edge computing applications to send pre-processed data to the cloud, helping you accrue significant savings by using the available bandwidth only for valuable data and improving network performance by reducing latency. It also supports SIMATIC CloudConnect, offering a secure and reliable IIoT Cloud gateway compatible with all leading Cloud platforms including Siemens MindSphere, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon AWS.
