Wireless & Secure Factory

​​

Opportunity & Size : There are 14.5 million industrial establishments worldwide. They include 10.7 million factories, 3.3 million warehouses, 500,000 oil and gas fields, 50,000 transport organizations and ports, 10,000 military bases, 54,000 mines, and 263,000 hospitals and labs (source: Harbor Research, IDC). Together they hold more than a billion assets worth $4.5 trillion. Industry 4.0 is creating an opportunity to optimize these assets. However, only 3 percent of the factory data is used for Industry 4.0 use cases. One of the top reasons for this underuse of data is a lack of an adequate and reliable industrial network infrastructure.

Our customer’s ask : Upgrade factory infrastructure, give future proof architecture, reduce cost of network (Ethernet, MPLS), Make it wireless & clean technology, Should reach remote places, Should sustain industrial environment of factory.

Solution : The factory of the future, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), robotics, remote monitoring and diagnostics, edge analytics, and traceability solutions have already started to transform the manufacturing supply chain. The next key step in the journey toward Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing is to industrialize these solutions. The key component in achieving the factory of the future is the network infrastructure, which acts as the backbone and is the single biggest factor for empowering the manufacturing process. We believe that the millions of industrial establishments becoming network enabled will move toward wireless networking technology (Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, 5G), together with deploying better wired networks across different layers in the manufacturing IT/OT space. Factory equipment holds a great deal of meaningful data. This data is key to any successful Industry 4.0 project. It must be collected from multiple sources and delivered to the right application at the right time—otherwise, little optimization can happen.
