Industrial Protocol Gateway using the Waterfall® WF-SME
In this architecture, a Waterfall One-Way™ is used as a unidirectional gateway which enables extraction and export of messages, data and information from within industrial networks, carried upon industrial protocols, to external networks. This allows reuse of HMI displays and reporting services, within external or public networks, without the risk of command and control.
The following diagram shows a DNP3 unidirectional gateway utilizing the WF-SME for DNP3:

Waterfall supports additional industrial protocols, such as Modbus, OPC, ICCP and others, and performs custom development of protocol support according to specific customer requirements and requests.
