  • On their 2017 events the joint trade fairs Intec and Z as well as the 3. Sächsische Tag der Automation (3rd Saxonian Day of Automation) focus on the »Industry of the future«, particularly emphasizing the digitalization of the metalworking industry.
  • Rhebo introduces solutions for the most urgent IT challenges of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments highlighting the topics »Real-time analysis« as well as »Integration of Industrial Control System (ICS) communication in production planning and quality assurance«.
  • Network condition monitoring expert Claas Rosenkötter of Rhebo will outline concepts to realize an interference-free operation of IIoT environments in an exclusive lecture.

Germany / Leipzig, 28/02/2017 - From March 7 to 10 the joint trade fairs for the metalworking industry, Intec and Z in Leipzig, focus on innovations to increase productivity and improve equipment availability. In context of Industry 4.0 / IIoT, »real-time analysis of ICS communication« and »safe integration of ICS into company IT and production planning« are becoming increasingly important and demand holistic solutions.

Therefore, the Leipzig technology company Rhebo will introduce its cyber security and monitoring solution Rhebo Industrial Protector which enables industrial companies to ensure 100 % transparency and a complete surveillance of their ICS networks.

»Most companies still haven’t realized a consistent transparency strategy for their ICS«, Klaus Mochalski, CEO of Rhebo, explains. »They don’t know what communication happens in their ICS, and they certainly don’t understand the effects of this complex communication structure on their production processes as well as product quality.«

Simultaneously to the fair trades at the Leipzig Messe Center, the 3. Sächsische Tag der Automation (3rd Saxonian Day of Automation) invites companies of the metalworking industry to further discuss the »Digitalization of Production«. The network and expert event also takes place at the Leipzig Messe Center offering fair trade visitors discussion panels and expert talks on the multifaceted challenges of a digitalized automated production.

Rhebo will participate at the 3. Sächsische Tag der Automation with the lecture »Safeguarding an interference-free operation of IIoT plants with consistent analysis of data streams«. In his talk, network condition monitoring expert Claas Rosenköter will outline how network condition monitoring enables companies with automated production to achieve complete transparency of their ICS and to maximize their equipment availability.

»Slowly, there is a growing awareness of the importance of comprehensive monitoring and protection for complex Ethernet-based industrial control systems," said Claas Rosenkötter, Head of Business Development at Rhebo, and continues "This will allow unpleasant surprises, such as intruders of Inside or outside, and also increase availability.«.


Rhebo can be found in hall 3 at booth A14 / B15-11.

Rhebo's lecture: Thursday, March 9, 12pm, hall 4, Messeforum.
