Today's industrial networks have evolved in size and complexity and are under constant demand as the applications that utilized these networks grow. Downtime caused by an unexpected event can have severe consequences to the company's reputation and production. In these types of environments, the implementation of resiliency through hi-availability, redundancy, fault tolerance, and failover are paramount.
Standby Link & Standby Systems
Through resiliency, you eliminate single points of failure that can bring production to a screeching halt. By having redundancies for collection and control systems as well as data links, you ensure that unexpected fault conditions are manageable, and productivity can return to normal operations with minimal downtime.
Benefits of a Resilient Industrial Network
- Reliability: Resilient industrial networks eliminate single point of failures, relying on multiple pathways and secondary systems for transmitting data. The network will sustain itself by rerouting traffic more efficiently, as backup links and standby systems take over.
- Minimize Downtime: In the case of a network failure or outage, resilient networks recover quicker, minimizing downtime and productivity loss.
- Sustainability: Sustaining network accessibility for collection and control equipment is key to overall system integrity. Having a dependable, reliable network ensures that operational productivity will continue in the event of system failures or network outages.
