Independent network planning for industry & engineering
Until a few years ago, industrial plant networks in particular were operated separated from one another (cf. homogeneous networks). Due to increasing connectivity and modern monitoring solutions, this separation can only be kept up in exceptional cases. Most present industrial networks are therefore heterogeneous or convergent networks. This interconnection of modern industrial networks causes new challenges for planners and operators.
Changing criteria for network and components
The complexity of industrial networks and their requirements is already reflected in the fundamental planning of cable routes, industrial switches and other network components. Gone are the days when you could simply install network components from the same manufacturer as the used PLC. In the future, the selection of the right network infrastructure components will be primarily based on the requirements for the partial and overall network.
Specific network planning instead of expensive oversizing
In addition to the planning of highly available industrial networks, the economic efficiency of the networks plays a major role in every phase. Where generous oversizing saves time in network planning, material costs and additional maintenance efforts eliminate these savings many times over. For this reason, we are specialized in adapting industrial networks to the actual requirements on site.
