The plant network is like the central nervous system of the entire facility. It’s the infrastructure that ensures people, data, and machines are all working together smoothly and seamlessly. Agilix Solutions and our partners offer a variety of services tailored to optimizing network performance.
Many of our customers’ networks transform over time from a plugged-in portal to the outside world into a tangled mess of disparate systems held together by aging and increasingly vulnerable control systems. It’s a formula for unplanned downtime and hits to your bottom line.
That’s why assessing and maintaining the health of your networks is crucial. Agilix works with Rockwell Automation, Panduit, and Cisco to help customers maximize network speed and optimize performance, without sacrificing security and reliability.
Our Network Discovery process is designed to create a clear picture of the network you have in place today. By discovering all the elements on your plant network and determining the configuration, we’re able to identify communication pain points that are slowing down performance.
Plant Skid Integration is a service we offer to companies preparing to introduce new lines to their facility. We’re able to help them communicate requirements with OEMs to ensure new devices added to the network integrate with the existing network plan.
The best time to think about and address network performance is before you plug anything in. Our Plant Network Design services are tailored to helping you develop an optimal network from the beginning to ensure all the systems from disparate OEMs communicates effectively when installed.
A Security Posture Survey captures existing traffic on your network and all the fingerprints of data going back and forth during a specific time period. It then analyzes all of that data being transferred and identifies your risk for any known vulnerabilities. The output is a thorough report of your risks, as determined by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), that should be addressed.
Our Network Assessment services are designed to give you the information you need to improve operations, solidify network security, and plan for future growth. A comprehensive Network Assessment sets the stage for improving collaboration and innovation, while identifying opportunities for the future.
Your network can either be a competitive advantage, or a major weight on your ability to keep up with competitors. It all depends on how it performs. Contact our team to discuss your particular needs and get tailored network services to ensure your network is always living up to its potential.
In most manufacturing facilities, there is a point person everyone turns to for their shop floor network needs. When a new device needs to be plugged in, a change needs to be made, or a problem is encountered, they rely on their de facto architect and keeper of the Frankenstein Network. For the purposes of […]Read More
Today’s modern industrial facility is only as productive and profitable as its network allows. The more failsafe a network, the less worry of loss of connectivity and production downtime. While most understand the importance of their networks and smart manufacturing, many facilities find that their networks aren’t ideally structured for efficiency or sustainability. Many networks […]Read More
On a recent blog, we discussed best practices for industrial network design, reviewing the structure and benefits of Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) network design for combining information technology with operational technology in a secure and organized manner. A primary method for organizing a plant network lies in proper network segmentation. At Agilix Solutions we understand […]Read More
