As a trusted serial partner, Moxa offers serial product availability until 2025, along with continuous driver and OS support for the industry.

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables data visibility from afar. In other words, connecting all of your “Things” to the Internet allows you to monitor, analyze, and act on data collected from many different devices — wherever the devices are located. However, before you can embrace the opportunities the Industrial IoT has to offer, you first need to identify a reliable solution for connecting your existing legacy serial devices to a network. Connecting serial devices to an Ethernet network is easier than ever with Moxa’s NPort brand of serial-to-Ethernet device servers. So – what has already been there for years, now also proves to be absolutely future-proof and supports important functions, such as preventive maintenance.
Moxa’s NPort serial device servers and MGate industrial Ethernet gateways feature the MXview industrial network management software and the MXview ToGo mobile app, which allows mobile phone access to network status to free up manpower from the control center. With MXview and MXview ToGo, users are able to reduce the decision-making time and optimize operational efficiency and productivity by monitoring serial device networks in real time – anytime, anywhere. Network administrators receive event notification pushed directly to their mobile phones, allowing them to instantly check the health of the network from their phone, including whether the network is operating normally, warnings have been issued, or a critical situation requires immediate attention.
