Baosight iCentroGate-GAP* Virtualized Industrial Gateway Solution
Baosight delivers a secure, virtualized, consolidated gateway solution using the Intel® Industrial Solutions System Consolidation Series, enabling customers to protect their sensitive internal networks while extracting the data for use across the enterprise.
Traditional GAP products for industrial communication are typically designed with two sets of hardware systems, each with its own CPU and operating system to execute a single task. One system generally handles data acquisition from an internal industrial network, while the second system handles data transfer to an external network. This model has two drawbacks:
• Security risk. Data communication between the systems is via the TCP/IP networking protocol, which has the potential to expose an unguarded network to cyber-attacks that could corrupt the systems.
• Cost, complexity, and footprint. System proliferation in an industrial environment imposes a financial burden in terms of hardware purchasing, system support, and maintenance expense, while also introducing layers of complexity in terms of cabling, shielding, and networking.
