Intel® NUC and Riwo EngineeringGoals
We needed a hardware platform with routing functionality to be a gateway between our industrial automation solution at customer site and a central Riwo application for remote diagnosis, VPN functionality, and, most of all, easy to use solution for our dealers.
Our goal is to offer dealers a solution that securely and simply accesses and manages... their end customer installations, even behind firewalls. The solution should be easy to install and allow employees to use the solution based on plug and play. With the solution a service platform is needed for overview, historical logs, user management, policies, and VPN functionality.
Riwo created this solution by our platform Rimote*. Rimote is a cloud server application with a web interface for control and user interface. At customer site a Rimote box is trying to connect with the Rimote server.
Why is the Intel® NUC the ideal solution?
Size: Within our industry, sometimes centimeters of free space could make a huge difference on allowing any projects to be executed. In this case a four-by-four-inch motherboard and enclosed in a tiny case makes it the ideal device for small industrial storerooms.
Performance: Powered by 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors, which are big on performance and feature longer battery life and built-in security for deeper protection. In this way, we will be able run our process control software and Rimote, and with no major effort move between applications with smart multi-tasking delivered by Intel® Hyper Threading Technology.
