Network troubleshooting and benchmarking
We can provide a comprehensive analysis of existing network design and provide recommendations of industry best practises. We have experience in troubleshooting network problems in an industrial environment and have expertise across a wide range of technologies which is essential in an environment where the problem can be with an end device, plc or SCADA system through to the network itself or a high level recipe handling system.
Our service also includes:
- Current network analysis
- Recommend improvements
- Obsolescence planning
- Network capacity planning
We can recommend, install and configure a complete network monitoring strategy that provides alerting in the event of a network failure or warnings when your network is reaching capacity. In an environment where plant downtime can cost huge amounts of money in lost production it is vital to pre-empt any potential failures or bottlenecks. We have experience in implementing solutions that alert when an anomaly is detected on your network as well as capturing key data in the event of an actual failure for troubleshooting purposes or analysis at a later date for root cause analysis.
