Deploying a modern network has its challenges: working with multiple vendors, staying on schedule, and meeting security needs. Our pre-engineered network solutions can help. We design them for industrial use, with technology from our top IT partners including Cisco, Panduit, EMC², and VMWare. We ship them pre-assembled and pre-configured to help save time and money during commissioning.
Design, deployment, and maintenance of a secure and robust network infrastructure can be complex, time-consuming, and costly. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) simplifies deployment of a properly designed industrial infrastructure by combining our pre-engineered network solutions with on-site configuration and 24/7 remote monitoring into a single contract. The result is simplified ordering and commissioning, improved network reliability, and reduced budgetary strain.
IaaS is aligned with the Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) reference architectures. Co-developed in partnership with Cisco, IaaS leverages best-in-class technologies from Rockwell Automation Strategic Alliance Partners, Microsoft and Panduit. Infrastructure-as-a-Service helps you optimize your network infrastructure security and performance.
Reduced server footprint. Extended application longevity. Improved system availability and recovery. These are just some of the reasons why more industrial organizations are adopting virtualization. However, designing and building a virtualized infrastructure from the ground up can be costly, complex, and time-consuming. You need to design the system and procure equipment from multiple vendors before you can fabricate, test, and commission it.
The Industrial Data Center (IDC) can greatly ease your move to a virtualized environment. The IDC is a scalable and pre-engineered infrastructure. It includes all the hardware you need to run multiple operating systems and applications off virtualized servers. We ship you the IDC pre-assembled and pre-configured. We will even send a Rockwell Automation professional to your facility to help commission it. With included TechConnect℠ remote support services, you have access to technical support that keeps your network running efficiently.
Whether you expand your existing network or implent a new one, you want to keep the project on schedule and within budget. You also must ensure your network can effectively and reliably meet your production demands.
The Industrial Network Distribution Solution (INDS) can help you address these challenges by consolidating design, commissioning, and industrial environmental protection into a pre-engineered network-distribution package. The INDS provides secure connectivity between the control room and manufacturing floor. It allows the ideal placement of critical network switching resources in the harsh plant floor environment. This standard package, based on Cisco and Panduit network architecture, meets Converged Plant-wide Ethernet (CPwE) standards and industrial environmental requirements. With included TechConnect remote support services, you have access to technical support that keeps your network running efficiently.
