Avoid Production Slowdowns with Network Monitoring
In manufacturing, time equals money. When an application that’s instrumental to your business fails, you can’t waste time troubleshooting by trial and error. Network administrators want more than just up or down status—they want answers. When did the failure happen? What did traffic levels look previously?
Without network visibility, every minute of downtime impacts your business production, and ultimately, profit. You need performance data on every device on the floor so you’re able to quickly detect anomalies.
It doesn’t matter what you manufacture. From cars to chemicals, electronics to consumer goods, anything you produce requires network uptime. Whether you’re a company with one small plant or hundreds of factories worldwide, efficiency matters.
Monitor Your Entire Manufacturing Floor
As your floor becomes more and more computerized, you need tools that can monitor all of those devices in real-time, including non-standard items like IP-enabled sensors or power meters. Constant monitoring of every network device on a real-time map helps IT understand what normal traffic levels like so you can set up alerts to notify you when standard traffic levels are exceeded on a specific device.
IT manager or network administrators can use network monitoring tools to:
- Stay on production schedule (without being hindered by network outages)
- Monitor ruggedized equipment (such as switches, routers, and cameras)
- Cut down on visits to the factory floor (via remote data access)
