How It Works

Business Model

netFIELD enables new business models for device manufacturers and plant operators

Device manufacturers can use the netFIELD Portal to market device-specific software, e.g. cloud applications in the analysis area. The platform also offers essential management and diagnostic functions for devices.

Via the netFIELD Edge Portal, plant operators gain insight into the field devices in their process - e.g. as topology representation or in the form of alarm and event messages - and can use services such as firmware updates or function upgrades on their devices.
