In today’s marketplace, agility is irreplaceable. Globalization, legislation and customer expectations constantly evolve – the only way to
move forward is to transform operations and achieve competitive advantage through creative, flexible, technologically advanced information
The market demands increased production flexibility and improved operational efficiency.
The next wave of automation investments are leveraging Internet Protocol to drive programs that make machinery capable of manufacturing a wider variety of products, deploy production lines with shorter switchover time between finished goods, and develop self-diagnosing plants that run through component failure.
Industrial security and its cost-effective management is higher on the agenda than ever.
The emergence of open networks and operating systems in industrial environments makes risk assessment and mitigation vital. The Industrial IP Advantage community can help you learn how to address your industrial security through a system-wide, defence-in-depth approach.
Navigate the transition from convenience to mission-critical mobility of workers and equipment.
Mobility services that were once a convenience are now critical to production operations. Doing more with less means that workforces need better tools for staying informed regardless of their location. In addition, today’s industrial processes require dynamic reconfiguration and rapid relocation and deployment of equipment.
Video has historically been an underused technology in manufacturing and production.
Standard Internet Protocol allows for rapid deployment of video on a common platform without the need to deploy a parallel network, which greatly enhances physical security and surveillance, safety and maintenance opening a new realm of possibilities and value.
Migration from monolithic servers and databases to virtualised computing and cloud resources create a new set of opportunities and challenges.
Virtualization and cloud techniques deliver higher availability and reduced deployment time and costs, and big data and analytics have potential to transform the way we optimize production operations.
Connecting intelligent machines on open IP networks gives line-of-sight without the need to be on-site.
Whether machinery is remote from operations centers or human resources are distributed beyond the plant perimeter, real-time, borderless collaboration between manufacturing, engineering and suppliers improves decision-making, efficiency, productivity and use of internal and external resources.
Effectively optimize your energy management in the face of increasingly volatile fuel costs.
It’s very difficult to legislate for changes in energy costs these days. What you can do, however, is minimize energy consumption to minimize expenditure – relatively minor operational modifications can lead to significant savings.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service can simplify and accelerate deployment.
