Remote access to Ethernet systems via a secure VPN tunnel has become widespread. However, many details determine how good and how practicable a corresponding solution actually is.
This has also been the experience of the globally active special machine manufacturer Wickert, which is why it has been relying on REX industrial routers and the VPN portal "myREX24.net" from Helmholz for years. The special machine builder from Landau in the Palatinate region of Germany manufactures presses and press systems and offers services for the production of moulded parts. The customers of the family-owned company - for example plastics processors and hardening shops, but also laboratories - are spread around the globe. Contemporary remote access to the plants in accordance with the company motto - More than Standard - is therefore obligatory.
