In the context of Industrial Internet, connectivity is a must during system construction as it provides the possibility of sharing the hardware data with the network, and accessing the hardware from other systems or devices. An efficient communication approach is the highest priority to deploy a successful technology like Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet, Internet of Things, etc.. Thus in this research, a system integration method is presented using industrial robots as the test scenario. Cloud and gateway technologies are utilised to achieve high-performance connectivity, integration and security. Multiple deployment models are developed for public, private and hybrid cloud scenarios. During implementation, the Universal Robot 5 is utilised as the test robot integrating to the KTH cloud system in Sweden. The results are quantifiably evaluated and discussed. The proposed approach also contributes to the Cloud Robotics research by proposing novel system structures and integration methods.
