Cyber Security

Networking and cybersecurity

The topics of secure communications in machine networks are a vital part of qualification for Industry 4.0. Technicians who are working in networked production environments, like mechatronic and industrial electronic technicians, as well as IT specialists, can become well-prepared for their tasks regarding networks and cybersecurity with our NetLab learning system.

NetLab

NetLab is our modular learning concept that combines hardware and software components with courseware to integrate the study of IT networks and cybersecurity in our qualification programs for I4.0. With NetLab, complex learning topics like local and remote access for maintenance, Ethernet, switching, routing, encryption, VPN, and virtual LAN can be taught.

NetLab offers a complete and valuable didactic solution designed to make learning as efficient as possible. Based on EduTrainer? Network and Security, the new course content can be combined with the existing CP Lab, MPS?, and CP Factory options, as well as other standard products.

A modular and universal concept

The EduTrainer? “Network and Security” is the fundamental hardware component of NetLab packages. It is based on the EduTrainer Universal to fit in A4 and ER mounting frames, allowing use in combination with other PLC modules and within learning environments of CP Lab, CP Factory, and MPS? 203 I4.0.

Practice-oriented courseware

Courseware developed for NetLab provides networking and security content for classroom scenarios. It is based on detailed, practical exercises which are completed by network basics and device-specific information. Prepared set-ups and sample solutions optimize laboratory work and teaching.

Industrial components

EduTrainer? Network and Security includes two industrial SCALANCE communications devices from Siemens: a VPN-capable firewall router, S615, and a managed industrial Ethernet switch, XC208. Additionally, the SINEMA Remote Connect Server (virtual application installed on a PC server) can also be used in secured, remote access scenarios with the NetLab Remote Access Package.
