"We need to provide our Romanian distributors with complete hardware and software solutions that will integrate various data sources into one easy-to-use package," said Horia Chirculescu, Manager of ViaNet. "We believe that the OPC DataHub is the perfect software solution."

"Right now we are working with one of our associates on a complete data center for a large Romanian electrical power producer," continued Mr. Chirculescu. "This company gets data readings from a wide geographical area through VSAT terminals via optical fiber, and the data has to be centralized in the dispatcher room. The SSL tunnelling facility of the OPC DataHub will be most welcome in assuring security of data transfered through the Internet and intranet.

"We have a strong interest in this project," said Andrew Thomas, President of Cogent. "It demonstrates the versatility of the OPC DataHub in any application, hardware or software, that requires secure and reliable collection and redistribution of real-time data."

The OPC DataHub is a single tool for OPC-based process data integration. An engineer can use it to aggregate OPC servers, tunnel data across a network or the Internet, and bridge between different OPC servers. Management can configure the DataHub to access live OPC data from Excel, a web browser, or cell phone, as well as store the data in any ODBC-compliant database.

Vianet Serv SRL acts as a reseller for communication hardware, specializing in wireless devices from Motorola and Alvarion. They are the Romanian representative for Netdish SpA of Italy and Sollae Systems from South Korea, as well as a reseller of products from RedLion Controls, USA.

Founded in 1995, Cogent Real-Time Systems is the leader in real-time cross-platform data integration between Windows, Linux and QNX. Customers include the Bank of Canada, Cadbury Chocolate and the European Space Agency. Cogent leverages its experience in real-time data communications to provide the next generation of OPC products.
