Industrial Networks

SONATA also sees a use case for guaranteed, resilient and secure service delivery in Industrial Networks. Related requirements support a programming model, SDK and service execution environment from the perspective of industrial network services.

A wind park operator uses SONATA to define a service that collects measurement data of the wind turbines in a local park. The data is forwarded to a central server via the local communications network. At the server the data is processed in real-time and commands are sent back to the wind turbines adapting certain turbine control parameters. The entire round trip time needs to be kept below a fixed delay threshold and resilience mechanisms must be in place to ensure message delivery with a very high probability.
