Network failures not only prevent access by plant operators to the field devices, but often also mean that field devices can no longer communicate with one another. In the worst case, this can bring production to a standstill.
The SINEMA Server software has been specially developed for industrial applications. It allows networks in an automation environment to be analyzed and monitored using standardized diagnostics options such as SNMP, PROFINET, and SIMATIC, for example. Collected data is saved in a long-term archive so that it can be evaluated and displayed as required. The determined network diagnosis may additionally be seamlessly integrated via OPC and web mechanisms into HMI/SCADA systems (e.g. WinCC, PCS7).
The SINEMA Server provides maximum transparency in industrial networks through automatic topology recognition, constant network monitoring, as well as comprehensive diagnostics and reporting functions. Network diagnostics can be easily integrated into HMI/SCADA systems such as WinCC as well as third-party systems.
SINEMA Server also offers complete integration of topology into the HMI/SCADA system via web browser. Warnings and error messages can be passed on via the integrated OPC interface.
Driven by the ongoing expansion with PROFINET-based and Ethernet-based devices, Siemens offers SINEMA Server, a network management software that visualizes network components from their connection to the office network over the automation system all the way to the machine level (including drive engineering and even power supply). SINEMA Server also offers the highest level of openness for Ethernet-based devices from other manufacturers; these can be easily and conveniently detected and diagnosed by means of SNMP. The SINEMA Server can therefore be used in infrastructure networks, such as in transportation.
The various license scopes (50, 100, 250, 500 nodes) allow the SINEMA Server to be used simply and efficiently to monitor smaller as well as larger networks. If more nodes are required, any number of additional nodes can be monitored with a central SINEMA Server. This includes, for example, individual production cells that are centrally monitored by a single SINEMA Server system.

A proven Secure Access Management solution designed to provide NERC CIP compliant access to Intelligent Electronic Devices. The CROSSBOW solution focuses on delivering productivity gains for administrators and users while achieving full NERC compliance in managing, securing and reporting on remote access.
Cybersecurity has become an urgent issue in many industries where advanced automation and communications networks play a crucial role in mission critical applications and where high reliability is of paramount importance. The electric utility, transportation, military, and industrial markets have special needs not found in a typical “commercial” or “office” environment.
We have been monitoring the developments of the various industry specific security standards including NERC CIP, ISA S99, AGA 12, IEC 62443, ISO 17799:2005 and PCSRF SPP-ICS, to ensure all Siemens RUGGEDCOM products contain features necessary to comply with the identified requirements.
Our complete cybersecurity solution combines the security features the RUGGEDCOM switches with that of the Multi Service Platform cybersecurity appliance. Customers are able to establish an electronic security perimeter around their critical infrastructure in order to prevent the disruption of mission critical applications by accidental or malicious acts.
You cannot secure what you do not know exists.
A cyber-secure enterprise solution with local and remote user access for password management of remote devices.
The Siemens RUGGEDCOM CIP Controller is a stand-alone appliance which offers the operator a consolidated solution to address their remote access, cyber security needs. The CIP Controller is based on the Siemens SIMATIC IPC 647D with Siemens RUGGEDCOM CROSSBOW installed on it.
The IPC 647D is a rugged and extremely compact industrial PC in 19” design (2U). It is particularly suitable for space-saving implementation of fast computing and visualization tasks, e.g. image and data processing or industrial server applications. With a height of only 2 units and a small mounting depth, it optimally utilizes the space in 19” standard control cabinets (from 500 mm).
CROSSBOW is a cybersecurity solution that provides local and remote user access and allows for the management of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) an their associated files.
We have developed, and maintain, a set of pre-integrated Intermediate Remote Access solutions called Blueprints. These Blueprints address individual network operator business needs in specific configurations and environments grouped to cover dimensions associated with business drivers and type of service. This allows us to deploy quickly and successfully.
