Wireless Plant Network Solutions

Improve Productivity And Safety With Smart Wireless Networks and Services

The wireless solutions developed for plant operations include hardware, software, and services targeting applications which would normally require extra time, additional investment, and more resources, if done based on wired infrastructure.

The solutions are engineered according to customer needs and can deliver video, voice, and control system information based on a wireless infrastructure. Field operations and the connectivity to remote sites or process signals are also part of the Wireless Plant Network solutions portfolio.

The engineered solutions are scalable and based on very specific requirements which include:

  • Bandwidth: High; multiple applications must share the service
  • Security/Reliability: Industrial security and robust coexistence are essential
  • Power Management: Devices can be line powered or recharged daily
  • Standards: Driven by IT community (802.11, WIMAX, LTE...)

Our Smart Wireless architecture uses rugged wireless access points from Cisco to provide Wi-Fi coverage. The Smart Wireless Gateway 1552WU is part of the Cisco® Aironet 1550 Series Outdoor Wireless Mesh Access Points which are Class I, Div 2 (ATEX Zone 2) certified and support dual band radios compliant with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards, providing a universal standard network infrastructure for easy integration of all the wireless applications in your plant, including security and mobile workforce productivity solutions.

The architecture uses Cisco Prime Infrastructure and allows Network Managers to design, control, and monitor enterprise wireless networks from a single location, simplifying operations. It oversees a series of wireless LAN controllers, which are responsible for Network wide wireless functions such as security policies, intrusion prevention, RF management, QoS, and mobility. Cisco Prime itself facilitates load balancing and traffic management, policy provisioning, network optimization, troubleshooting, user tracking, and monitoring for end-to-end security.
