The new solution will be secure and reliable
Emerson joined hand with Cisco to form a partnership for next-generation industrial wireless networking services. These wireless networking solutions fundamentally change data management and enhance factory productivity, reliability, and safety. Emerson Wireless 1410S Gateway combined with Cisco Catalyst IW6300 Heavy Duty Series Access Point with the latest WirelessHart sensor technology to deliver data that is secure and reliable in difficult industrial scenarios.
The industrial networking solutions mix Emerson’s experience in industrial automation applications with Cisco’s expertise in networking, cybersecurity and IT infrastructure to allow digital transformation. As the demand rises to increase productivity, lower the cost of maintenance and safe and secure working environment. The industrialists are putting their money to bring in the IoT sensors networks with scalable operational analytics tools to upgrade organizational collaboration and decision making.
The new infrastructure will remove complexity
Liz Centoni, Senior Vice President and General Manager, IoT at Cisco said, “A secure connection that scales easily is the foundation for every successful IoT deployment. By using the power of the internet-based network, Cisco provides a secure, automated, rock-solid infrastructure helping IT and operational teams together to reduce complexity and improve safety.
With this new level of wireless access point gives increased Wi-Fi bandwidth required for real-time safety check with the help of Emerson’s location awareness and wireless video. The new applications improve employee safety practices reinforce plant security and make sure compliance to environment is followed.
Bob Karschina, Vice President of Wireless at Emerson said, “Products installed in industrial plants need to last for years, even decades. This kind of longevity was a critical design and engineering requirement to ensure this new wireless access point was future-proofed to meet a rapidly evolving technology landscape.”
The industrial setting is still among the challenging and dangerous places around the world. It needs scalable, durable and receptive Wi-Fi solutions that can survive harsh conditions in remote regions.
