Other Internet/Fieldbus Gateway Issues

Apart from most common Internet/fieldbus gateway issues, which are covered above, there are other aspects that should also be examined. For instance, smart caching strategies of fieldbus data may greatly reduce the fieldbus load. Another interesting issue are system notifications, which cannot be easily implemented by the HTTP protocol but may nevertheless be a reasonable way of improving the performance of an Internet/fieldbus gateway.
