IT systems within a factory environment are often installed and evolve over a number of years often not taking into account modern industrial demands on a factory Ethernet network. With ERP, MES and SCADA systems along with PLC and I/O devices all requiring a place on the factory network, the design and implementation of your infrastructure is vital to ensure production output and reliability is not compromised.
We at Belvoir Valley Solutions Limited can come to your site and provide an analysis of your existing IT infrastructure and recommend where we believe you would benefit from either a reconfiguration of your existing infrastructure or if it would be more cost effective to create a new IT infrastructure that provides a scalable and future proof solution that will accommodate all your factory IT requirements.
An infrastructure solution for a modern IT industrial environment not only encompasses network cabling and associated electronics along with client\ server hardware and operating systems but also a complete backup solution and disaster recovery strategy. These components are often overlooked in a complete solution.
With an ever increasing number of users wanting access to data, whether it is historic production data, KPI’s or real-time process information then security and management of data access is a key requirement. We can design and implement a full Microsoft domain architecture that will give centralised administration of user and computer accounts and create an environment that will facilitate the deployment of security patches and updates to all your servers and workstations in a secure and controlled manner. Through the use of group policies and ACL’s we can ensure access to your workstations servers and data is secure and robust.
