To implement smart systems and take advantage of their benefits, organizations increasingly rely on industrial network infrastructure. However, achieving a complete, managed, and secure network is a challenge. To make progress, it is critical to develop a plant-wide strategy with a shared vision for OT and IT to pursue.
Focused on the Big Picture
Rather than viewing network hardware as the sub-components of control systems, identify your network as its own system which the various control systems run on top of, and rely on. Thinking differently helps to build a cohesive strategy for the entire facility and implement the right solutions.
Progress the Larger Strategy
Like any system that’s critical to your business, the industrial network should be developed to facilitate meeting long-term business goals and future-proofing the infrastructure.
