High uptime and lifelong reliability in harsh environments
Any application in which an infrastructure failure could result in serious damage or life-threatening situations may be considered mission critical. Mission critical applications are not limited to transport, traffic monitoring, oil & gas, Smart Grids, electrical substations, or wind turbines, but might also include IP video surveillance and security in cities or on campuses.
Network infrastructure in these applications must operate under the harshest conditions. Performance can be affected by, for example, extreme temperatures, chemicals, ingress, interference, vibration or moisture. However, the infrastructure should have no failures or downtime, as this could result in severe damage or even loss of life. That’s why infrastructure and components for mission critical applications need to meet far higher requirements than a standard network for offices.
Design must be compact and robust, equipment should offer high redundancy in areas such as data transmission and power and guarantee high levels of availability and security. Compliance with specific industry standards is vital, as are advanced solutions for ongoing monitoring. A large number of ‘non-traditional’ devices are currently being connected to networks and these need to be monitored and managed by SCADAs. As large areas are covered, the network must be managed and maintained in a smarter way than ever before, using a centralized approach.
