Industrial Network and Security Solutions (INSS)

Developing a robust and secure network infrastructure requires protecting the integrity, availability and security of manufacturing control data. Our approach to industrial network convergence applies a design methodology for your network requirements to develop a physical framework to align with and support your logical framework.   From Network Audit to definition and design, through Implementation and Validation, our roadmap ensures secure, standardized, and consistent network integration to enable plant and enterprise-wide information sharing. Our team of engineers is experienced with many industry-leading controls platforms including the deployment of Cisco and other network technologies and solutions. Our team has:

  • Knowledge of convergence of manufacturing and enterprise networks
  • Knowledge of manufacturing applications and the understanding of application and functional requirements (i.e. types of traffic, data requirements, topology requirements, etc.)
  • Experience with complete turnkey network infrastructure upgrades (concept, Definition, Design, execution, validation, and training)
  • Awareness of manufacturing security issues (ISA99/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity)
  • Knowledge of the networking models, (TCP/IP model and OSI 7-layer model) and the effects on the performance of your controls system
  • Experience with all types of manufacturing networks – EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, DeviceNet, DH+, Remote IO, and other industrial networks
  • Awareness of IT policies and the plant floor
