Solutions for communications in industrial networks and PLC

Nowadays in industrial networks it is not strange that there are devices using different communication protocols. This situation prevents direct communication and limits resource optimization within the network.

GO (Opensource Gateway) is the solution to this issue, offering a unique protocol to exchange messages through the network. GO is located between the network and the devices connected to it and its mission is to translate messages in both directions to the unique protocol and vice versa. The message translation is performed without latency.

GO works in both directions and ensures communication between any pair of devices connected to the network. Usually the unique protocol will be TCP/IP, although others could be used, and the data packets to be translated could be from protocols such as OSI, Fipway, Unitelway or Modbus.


  • Extends the expected life of old systems regardless of whether they are able to use TCP/IP or not.
  • Flexibility. It is flexible because it can be used with any kind of device in any type of network, after a specific analysis and adjustment.
  • Transparency. It is transparent to the network and to the devices.
  • Plug & Play. Previous configuration makes the device Plug & Play, averting possible failures in deployments.
  • Network monitoring. Using standard software supporting SNMP (Nagios, HP Open View).
  • Seamless deployment. It is not needed to stop the factory during GO deployment.
  • It can be powered using standard PoE 802.3af (Power over Ethernet).
  • Standardization of the Network Plant Architecture. All the gadgets in the network are connected in the same way.

GO translates the data into a common protocol without latency periods


In the picture above, GO is located between the network and the devices enabling communication between all of them without latencies. Go translates the messages sent by each device to a single protocol and vice versa and is completely transparent to network resources.
