In the manufacturing sector, it is important to ensure the continuity of production processes and optimum operation of the equipment by protecting oneself from the risks of industrial espionage at the same time. Due to this reason, it is the best praxis in the sector when the office data networks are completely separated from the network infrastructure necessary for manufacturing equipment.
Advantages granted by the construction of industrial data network:
- enhanced high-speed of data network for ensuring optimum operation of manufacturing equipment;
- increased security of the data network for the protection of industrial commercial secrets;
- nonstop operation of data network when there is damage in separate branch of the network;
- remote supervision and management of the equipment.
