TAMPA, Fla.--()--TeamViewer, a leading global software provider for digital networking and collaboration, today announced its partnership with KUNBUS, a Linux-based industrial controller. The partnership will enable remote access functionalities on KUNBUS Revolution Pi (RevPi), an open, modular industrial PC based on the established Raspberry Pi Compute Module.

KUNBUS RevPi Core offers a solution for engineering organizations that allows for upgrading of aged machineries in factories, making them smarter and enabling them to connect to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). KUNBUS RevPi Core will now integrate with TeamViewer’s remote support solution, providing users with secure and easy-to-use capabilities to remotely access, control and maintain the connected machines. This will enhance the continuous and reliable communication between different industrial networks and systems, arming operators and gateway managers with accurate information to act quickly when issues arise.

“Previously, our customers were restricted in the way they could access the web server UI of KUNBUS RevPi Core, limiting their ability to innovate business models, improve maintenance of existing machinery and benefit from new revenue streams,” said Dr. Volker de Haas, project manager of Revolution Pi at KUNBUS GmbH. “Now, they have easy access to manage and maintain machines remotely, ensuring they are working properly and efficiently. We are excited to partner with TeamViewer and look forward to new ways we can innovate and enhance the way we manage our machineries.”

TeamViewer will provide KUNBUS RevPi Core with the following features:

  • Improved visibility of a machine’s current and future states: Manufacturer or maintenance providers will have access to integrated dashboards that provide instant access for control, data capture and support so they can easily intervene directly when something goes wrong from any location and any device.

    Secure user management, authentication and control: RevPi with TeamViewer offers secure user management, authentication and control features to ensure privacy for businesses and its customers. The solution utilizes public/private key exchange, end-to-end session encryption and access controls via trusted devices as well as black- and whitelists.

“This partnership with KUNBUS showcases our commitment to continuously improving our IIoT offering,” said Raffi M. Kassarjian, general manager of Emerging Products Group at TeamViewer. “We understand the manufacturing industry needs to innovate in order to stay competitive in the digital age and we are thrilled to be making strides in helping factories and machines become smarter.”
