Enabling seamless connect between Operations (OT) and Business (IT)

Device Bridge

Real-time data acquisition and processing are crucial for various businesses and manufacturing processes. However, companies often face problems when establishing connections to legacy devices, handling multiple data formats, building, and customizing business logic, handling large volumes of data, and so on.

Bosch offers an Industry 4.0 software solution that acquires manufacturing data from a wide variety of shop floor devices (both legacy and modern). The collected data is then pre-processed, transformed to a Standard format and delivered to IT applications such as MES, Database, Cloud, File storage, and more for further processing and storage.
