Remote Access and Maintenance / Internet Security Presented by James Schall – Crescent Electric Supply
Why is industrial remote access / maintenance important? We will display the benefits of secure remote access to equipment via VPN connectivity (wired or cellular). Reduces travel for OEM’s engineers and maintenance personnel. Reduces downtime for end users and remote access to sites from anywhere with an internet connection.
A full product demonstration of the Phoenix Contact mGuard secure VPN/Firewall/Router appliance, including the Phoenix Contact Secure Cloud portal. End users can control when the OEM / maintenance personnel are allowed to access the equipment. OEM’s / maintenance personnel can easily document the amount of time spent supporting the end user customer. This is a great tool for any grain handling installation, irrigation or any other equipment that may need remote access / maintenance.
