  3. IK-IPCOM - Description

Online-Training - Controller-Kommunikation für Industrie 4.0 und IoT (IK-IPCOM)

  • With developments such as Industry 4.0 or IoT (Internet of Things), the boundaries between IT and OT (Information and Operation Technology) are becoming increasingly blurred. Automation technology is often no longer a closed system and the controller communicates far into the upper levels of the automation pyramid up to the cloud. In this course, we will give you an overview of current communication standards, give you various options for connecting SIMATIC Controllers to the above levels and equip you for communication in Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.


  • You are familiar with various IP-based communication standards, can implement them purposive in SIMATIC Controllers and effectively implement the requirements of Industry 4.0 and IoT for communication in automation systems.
  • You will deepen your theoretical knowledge through numerous practice-oriented exercises in our virtual exercise environment Virtual Lab.
