Based on their shared vision of open, flexible and interoperable systems in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Molex and TTTech will work together in the future. The two companies will present the first results of their collaboration at the Hannover Messe, April 23-27, 2018 in Hannover, Germany.
The industrial automation market is currently experiencing a tectonic shift towards more openness and tighter integration. Existing inflexible infrastructures are struggling to keep up with the changing demands of this increasingly digitized business environment. Molex and TTTech have agreed to address these demands for greater interoperability, information transparency and connectivity by leveraging their combined OT (Operational Technology) and IT expertise. At the Hannover Messe the two companies will show a demonstration that integrates innovative technologies such as OPC UA (Unified Architecture), TSN (Time Sensitive Networking) and edge/fog computing. This demonstration will serve as an indication of the two companies’ plans.
“TTTech’s IIoT platform complements Molex OT solutions and together we can deliver an open, end-to-end solution operating from the sensor to the cloud and anything in between,” says Riky Comini, director, industrial automation, Molex. “Molex has both deep industry knowledge and long-standing customer relationships that will accelerate the adoption of innovative technologies such as OPC UA TSN and edge/fog computing in the broader industrial automation market,” says Markus Plankensteiner, vice president sales industrial North America and strategic accounts, TTTech. The jointly developed demonstration by Molex and TTTech will be shown during Hannover Messe 2018 at the Molex booth F76 in hall 9.
