Industrial networks in transition - a short explanation

The network as the key to Industry 4.0
– Between digitalisation, data security and productivity

Your next step:
Planned implementation instead of complicated temporary solutions

No matter if existing or new plant - avoid transitional solutions and put an end to outdated procedures. We explain to you how you can make your plant networks ready for the future and already benefit economically and through lower maintenance costs tomorrow.

  • Data volume in individual plant networks is constantly increasing
    Machines and plants are becoming increasingly complex and have more sensors / data sources. Despite the additional data volume (network load ↗), prioritised process data must still be transported loss-free and in real time.
  • Exchange of process data across plants (plant networking)
    If several systems are operated in parallel, they often have to exchange comprehensive process data. In addition to smooth data exchange, these data connections must guarantee all requirements for network performance and security.
  • Network communication becomes more versatile and far-reaching
    In addition to pure process communication (e.g. only PROFINET), modern industrial networks must be able to handle various communication protocols and applications. Besides prioritised process data, additional data from connected network cameras, user panels, etc. are transported. This is where classically unplanned networks quickly reach their limits.

What does this mean for operators of industrial plants?

Whether existing or new: machine networks have to be prepared for smooth operation and secured data exchange. Create the basis for the digital transformation of your machine processes. Avoid costly structural adjustments and maintenance procedures in the operating phase. Sounds interesting? Planning networks with Indu-Sol.

What does this mean for industrial plant manufacturers?

Plant networks must adapt to changing requirements and increasing connectivity. Through targeted network planning, you can check changes to the structure and infrastructure for weak points in advance. Simplified commissioning despite increasing complexity - interested? Just get in touch with us.
