Worldwide News Wibu-Systems joins the Chinese Alliance of Industrial Internet Wibu-Sytems has joined the Sino-German Industrie 4.0 Project (I4.0 Project), which is aimed at identifying existing Sino-German cooperation projects on intelligent manufacturing and interconnected production processes in China. Already in 2015, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China (MIIT) signed a Memorandum of Understanding and committed to flanking cooperation projects between companies from China and Germany that support intelligent manufacturing and interconnected production concepts. For the Sino-German I4.0 map, Wibu-Systems has chosen to highlight its Chinese partner IECHO Science Technology Co., Ltd. The joint project is based on CodeMeter, a technology that safeguards the integrity of production data, be it machine code or configuration parameters. The implementation of CodeMeter ensures that the communication occurs only between certified and manufacturer-specific machines, that the vendor’ IP is fully protected, and that production data used in the manufacturing process does not fall prey to hackers.
