Redefining Network Connectivity for Manufacturing 4.0
The industrial revolution marked the first transitional phase of the global manufacturing scene. Fast forward to 2020, and digital transformation is paving the way for industry 4.0.
In times where products are devised far away from where they are eventually sold, and joint ventures are sought as the key to drive innovation, manufacturing megacorps rely heavily on fast and consistent application performance and data synchronisation to collaborate with vendors and oversee different parts of the production process.
While the internet and MPLS have been accommodative of enterprises’ connectivity needs, there is only so much these network solutions can do. The internet is not business-grade, and companies are bound to experience workflow interruptions. MPLS, on the other hand, is an expensive technology and fails to keep up with the current enterprise requirements.
