Creating a Digital Twin, improving levels of automation, delivering on safety and efficiency
UNIBERG GmbH partners with Staex GmbH to create a Digital Twin framework for a variety of industrial as well as constructional environments. Such a framework incorporates information from various data sources, such as IoT gateways, sensors and industrial machines to produce a unified digital twin of the industrial environment, where all business partners can track the overall production progress instead of a very fragmented view that is state-of-the-art currently. The seamless device connectivity and data transfer allows easy tracking of equipment and workers in a new established digital twin environment; increasing the level of automation and letting clients be up to 70% more efficient regarding time and other resources.
Staex provides stable communication between IoT devices and gateways on top of multiple public and private 5G networks that are deployed on the facilities.
Global connectivity for Kubernetes
Staex and UNIBERG are also collaborating on the “cloudification” of VoIP services, reducing latency and improving communication quality. This solution is for clients who want to deploy VoIP Docker containers through Kubernetes in different Local Area Networks (LAN) and then establish connections between these containers through Network Address Translation (NAT).
Staex’s responsibility is to establish reliable and secure communication in complex environments without using NAT. Staex runs its high-tech networking solution alongside the containers achieving stable and resilient data transfer across multiple networks through NAT.
Andreas Möller, CEO of UNIBERG, “UNIBERG has conducted an extensive pilot project with Staex delivering on innovative solutions for our clients. I am especially impressed with end-to-end encryption and global secure connectivity that work straight out of the box, therefore not requiring third-party tweaking for security like Kubernetes does. Staex solution enables utilities, robotics and industrial IoT to take advantage of modern software technology inspired by crypto and web 3.0 that brings software maintenance and network management automation to a whole new level.”
“Staex simplifies complex infrastructure and networks that do not meet current demands of the world’s volatile climate and ever changing environments. Companies need proven distributed and decentralized business environments to collaborate with other entities across networks and borders. The partnership with UNIBERG enables Germany’s largest companies to take advantage of technologies and services that meet the highest possible professional and security standards”, said Dr. Alexandra Mikityuk, CEO and Co-Founder of Staex GmbH.
