Better products, better processes, better performance. In all industries, the demands of best practice and constant innovation create opportunities for the most progressive enterprises. Internet Protocol is the definitive means of convergence and connectivity available today. It helps you to use advanced technologies to increase production performance and agility, and reduce costs and downtime.
Today’s vehicles are customised in batches of one, requiring flexibility and a common platform to manage the diverse numbers of networked devices in use. Internet Protocol enables scalable and reproducible system design and integration, enabling users to access more valuable information, to run their plants more reliably and at higher velocities, and to be more competitive in global markets.
As consumer taste changes, fast and frequent line reconfiguration has become the norm. At the same time, changing business models increase the demands on these machinery suppliers to deliver real-time support. Internet Protocol ensures the scalability and robustness needed to integrate and remotely manage machinery today, providing better quality information and reducing downtime.
Long-term investments demand future-proof technologies with a long shelf life and low ownership costs. Convergence of multiple networks into one, multiple servers into virtualised appliances and commitment to open standards are all consistent with modern thinking and doing. Internet Protocol has become the definitive open communications technology that makes these goals a reality.
Safety and security are the first requirements of any technology, particularly where communications are concerned. This has to be matched by equally skilled resources across all geographies, in-house and outsourced, with the distribution of assets making a secure infrastructure imperative. Internet Protocol has a proven track record of delivering safe and secure systems on a global basis.
Regulatory compliance is increasing the infrastructure demands of remote assets. Whether it is video surveillance of a pumping station or access control at a reservoir, information demand has extended far beyond the traditional serial links to telemetry units. The data convergence and security offered by Internet Protocol allow these services to be cost effectively delivered via the internet.
The $3.88tn delivered by the Internet of Things is shared across all industrial sectors. Concurrent engineering techniques enabled by Internet Protocol allow physical network design, logical network design and application development to be abstracted, reducing time to market and downtime, and enhancing system flexibility, performance and productivity in a highly competitive world.
