Industrial Networking

Industrial networks are becoming much more sophisticated as organizations strive for high reliability and performance in addition to seamless data access and control across all levels in the factory from the sensor/device level to the operations and management level. The vast number of available networks makes it a daunting task to pick one (or several) to best meet the needs of your unique application. Furthermore, interfacing to multiple industrial networks can be a very difficult network architecture to implement, especially when older legacy networks are involved.  AIC is an expert in industrial networking technology, and can help you plan and implement a flexible system architecture that will meet your current needs and allow for future additions and modifications.

The use of industrial networking greatly reduces the amount of hard-wire connections required in the system which in turn reduces installation time and wiring cost while improving overall system reliability. AIC works with both operations technology (OT) and information technology (IT) to create integrated processes and configure network interfaces.

Network connectivity is complicated. As a system integrator of multiple vendor technologies, AIC stays abreast of the everchanging advances in fieldbuses, industrial Ethernet networks and IIoT platforms to help our customers deploy scalable and secure industrial network architectures. AIC engineers and field service technicians have extensive experience designing, implementing and trouble-shooting the leading industrial networks on the market, including proprietary networks.
