A resilient network underpins operational efficiency in manufacturing. The constant growing need for expanded technological support and enhanced network capabilities has created significant challenges within this industry.
Rising bandwidth requirements, restricted access to applications and increased latency all pose hurdles to ongoing efficiency. Manufacturing facilities have complex infrastructures, connecting multitudes of platforms and devices. Legacy hardware and software implemented by different integrators create a challenging ecosystem. Difficult to connect to and manage, manufacturing organizations needs a platform that ensures always-on remote access.
This white paper discusses challenges unique to distributed manufacturing environments and how an Out-of-Band management system can combat these to provide full network visibility, mitigate downtime and reduce outages.
