Skkynet subsidiary Cogent Real-Time Systems signs memo of understanding with BellChild to offer next generation cloud service for Industrie 4.0 and Industrial IoT.
Mississauga, Ontario, December 7, 2016 – Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. (“Skkynet”) (OTCQB: SKKY), a global leader in real-time cloud information systems, announces that Cogent Real-Time Systems, a Skkynet subsidiary, signed a memo of understanding with BellChild Ltd. of Osaka, Japan, to launch the next generation iBRESS™ cloud service. This MOU supports the rollout of an Asian-market specific SaaS (Software as a Service) for secure, real-time data communication suitable for Industrie 4.0 and Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications.
“We are pleased to strengthen our relationship with BellChild in this way,” said Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet, “and build on the success of the current iBRESS Secure Cloud Micro Service, which we have been offering jointly for the past 18 months. Adding the capabilities of the SkkyHub™ service to BellChild’s portfolio will significantly enhance their ability to serve their customers.”
Users of the improved iBRESS service will be able to securely connect industrial plants, machines, or individual sensors and actuators to a complete Industrie 4.0 or IIoT system. This will allow BellChild customers to monitor and control their industrial processes in real time, from a web page or mobile phone, as well as log data directly to any database or Big Data repository. The improved service requires no programming, and allows users to seamlessly integrate existing systems using standard protocols, while incrementally adding Industrie 4.0 or IIoT capability as needed.
Underpinning the iBRESS and SkkHub services, Skkynet’s patented technology for secure, outbound-only connections is fully compatible with corporate IT policies, and ensures no exposed attack surface – no open firewall ports, no VPN, and no extra hardware. It provides Industrie 4.0 and IIoT connectivity at in-plant networking speeds of microseconds over network latency, and processes up to 50,000+ data changes per second.
BellChild is a system integration company focusing on secure system development, robust infrastructure development, and advanced operations capabilities. BellChild’s BEAM platform provides highly secure cloud services for the financial sector. The company develops and maintains secure servers used to support high-speed financial transactions, which is also used to provide a robust and secure platform to support industrial cloud-based systems in the form of iBRESS™ service.
