The collaboration represents a major operating advantages and provides various benefits through virtualization and process automation business
The growing need for factory operations to meet customer and market demands is driving the manufacturing sector to be more agile and flexible than ever. The trend is focused on simplifying operations, avoiding cables, disks, reducing space and the numerous equipment to protect data or contain programs for production processes.
This is driving a convergence of Operations Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT), among which IIOT 2 stands out to increase visibility and improve quality.
In the case of Mexico, the manufacturing industry is one of the most important for national economic development. According to information from Banco Base, the performance of sector 3 , especially in high-quality manufacturing (automobiles, plastics, and aerospace), has been the engine of Mexico’s economic growth since 2016, representing 18% of the country’s GDP.
Without the comprehensive management tools or capabilities that provide centralized control over the entire network infrastructure, from edge to core, as well as mobile devices and security policies, efforts to unify plant operations with systems Business can be affected by compromised execution, downtime, and zero productivity of critical tools and resources.
On the contrary, when analyzing large data sets, specialists are able to prevent how much product will need to be manufactured, which dispenses an exaggerated stock , reducing waste of time, waste, resources, storage costs, among other benefits.
Hence, it is critical that employees use a combination of radio frequency identification (RFID), wearables , automated systems and other emerging technologies to monitor physical plant processes and enable companies to make decentralized decisions.
On the other hand, 63% of manufacturers see tracking with a mix of technology as a central focus (for example: barcode scanning, RFID, and real-time location systems (RTLS) for proper deployment, and thus achieve the desired visibility.
An example of all this is raised by Extreme Networks with solutions directed by software to the manufacturing industry, among which the following stand out:
• ExtremeAnalytics : Network-based application optimization and analysis solution for higher performance, with tools to provide detailed real-time business analytics and cloud-based, mobility, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. • ExtremeControl: Provides a single pane of glass management system, offering centralized visibility and granular end-to-end control of wired and wireless networks. • ExtremeWireless : A portfolio of wireless solutions, ranging from the data center to the edge, leveraging open architectures and policy-based networking in unified plant and business environments. • ExtremeSecurity
– Provides comprehensive control of access to network assets, including BYOD and associated devices.
