The Benefits of a Standardized Communications Layer
With real-time access to accurate and reliable industrial data, companies can improve processes, drive productivity, and make better decisions.
But data access is especially challenging in industrial environments, which often include disparate equipment, a range of enterprise business systems, multiple lines and remote geographic sites, and evolving regulatory and site security requirements.
This is where standardizing on a communications layer is key. By implementing standardized data flow through a centralized and secure architecture, companies can provide a single source of industrial data to all of their automation devices, machines, and software applications.
