Communication via modem and router The communication via modem and router offer is dedicated to the following applications: b Synchronization between remote machines; direct data exchange between controllers. b Remote maintenance; access to the controller via the SoMachine programming software. b Remote control and monitoring of machines; receipt of information and sending commands on GSM/UMTS phone (1). This offer comprises a Schneider Electric modem, GSM/UMTS modem and a VPN router made by eWon. For the modem and router, please consult our website (1) Global System Mobile (2G)/Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (3G).
