IP-based Communications Build up Smart Factories

June 26.2015

Built upon Industry 4.0, the essence of smart factory lies in a well-connected communication network which allows for automated manufacturing, remote production monitoring, and smooth operations. The communication network as a key role for smart factories helps integrate data from sensors and manufacturing equipment, making it possible to apply big data analysis to optimize production, logistic, and inventory management. “Factory owners must build a smart factory step by step” said Hadwin Liu, Chief Architect of NEXCOM Network and Communication Solutions Business Unit. “Establishing efficient and secure industrial communication architecture is critical.”
