  • Components to Truly Globalize CIMPLICITYIn this example, three connected plants feed information into a CIMPLICITY Enterprise Server at a corporate centralized point. GlobalView servers take this enterprise-level application, providing worldwide access. The included GlobalView Relay Server not only enables a large number of users, but also provides a level of redundancy in the event that one of the GlobalView servers is offline.

    Easy and Fast ExpansionIn this example, a single Global-View Server is remotely connected via the internal intranet to an existing CIMPLICITY server. This architecture doesnt affect the existing setup and enables the entire plant to make decisions with real-time data.
