Many Industrie 4.0 use-cases require end-to-end communication between layers of the automation pyramid. Converting the existing layered communication into a peer-to-peer architecture does however require the functional bridging between protocols. In this article, we discuss Industrie 4.0 communication scenarios, constraints of the automation domain, as well as device communication requirements, and present our end-to-end communication approach based on our information bus concept, the virtual automation bus (VAB).
