Network Visibility Increases Industrial System Availability
For control engineers, their primary goal is to ensure that they have system availability, but they often do this without focusing on the network status. This is becoming problematic because even though the Industrial Internet of Things is helping to connect more and more devices, it is, unfortunately, increasing network complexity and introducing new security risks. Without network visibility, it is very difficult to identify the root cause of problems. Control engineers often have to revert to trial and error to get the system back to normal, which is time-consuming and troublesome.
What if control engineers had clear visibility of the network status and could quickly identify the root cause of network downtime?
