Sinema Remote Connect is a management platform supplied by Siemens for efficient and secure remote access to globally distributed machines and plants. The server application simplifies not only remote services, such as the remote maintenance of machines and plants, but also other remote applications, such as condition monitoring. Sinema Remote Connect manages and authorizes all communication connections. The management platform is particularly suitable for standard and special-purpose machine building, as it enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to uniquely identify and control many identical machines at different customer locations.
Sinema Remote Connect ensures the secure administration of VPN tunnels between the control center, service engineers and the installed plants. Service engineers and the machines to be maintained each establish an independent connection to Sinema Remote Connect. The management platform then verifies the identity of the individual stations by an exchange of certificates, before any access to the machine is granted. Any unauthorized access to the corporate networks in which the plants or machines operate is prevented, thus increasing security. The VPN tunnel connections are certificate-based in accordance with the OpenVPN standard and are protected with up to 4096-bit encryption. The allocation of rights for access to machines can be centrally regulated using the management platform's simple user administration feature. All stations are enabled or blocked manually, so that the customers of the OEMs, the plant operators, also have permanent control over every attempt to access their corporate network.
All machines can be uniquely identified and selected via Sinema Remote Connect – even if they have identical local IP addresses – by means of an integrated address book function. The VPN connections can then be established with a simple mouse click. Sinema Remote Connect is protocol-independent. This means that users can use different applications, such as the Simatic Step 7 programming software (TIA Portal), for remote maintenance as soon as the connection to the machine has been established.
Machines can be connected to Sinema Remote Connect via cellular phone networks, DSL or existing private network infrastructures. Siemens offers a wide portfolio of industrial routers from the Scalance series, such as the Scalance S615, for this purpose. These devices can easily be parameterized via Sinema Remote Connect using an auto-configuration interface. All the information about the respective machines can be stored in the management platform, meaning that the routers only have to be registered once in Sinema Remote Connect, after which all configuration data is assigned to them. This eliminates the otherwise time-consuming programming of the devices.
Siemens AG (Berlin and Munich) is a global technology powerhouse that has stood for engineering excellence, innovation, quality, reliability and internationality for more than 165 years. The company is active in more than 200 countries, focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization. One of the world's largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, Siemens is No. 1 in offshore wind turbine construction, a leading supplier of combined cycle turbines for power generation, a major provider of power transmission solutions and a pioneer in infrastructure solutions as well as automation, drive and software solutions for industry. The company is also a leading provider of medical imaging equipment – such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging systems – and a leader in laboratory diagnostics as well as clinical IT. In fiscal 2014, which ended on September 30, 2014, Siemens generated revenue from continuing operations of €71.9 billion and net income of €5.5 billion. At the end of September 2014, the company had around 343,000 employees worldwide on a continuing basis.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
