The right technology mix for digitalized enterprise operations

Connect all your assets and transform data into insight

Industry 4.0 is transforming the way asset-intensive industries – such as manufacturers, logistics providers, ports, mines, utilities, railways, airports – run their operations. New technologies like industrial IoT, AI and machine learning (ML), edge computing and analytics, mission-critical wireless communications and digital twin enable enterprises to deliver real-time decision-making, become more agile & flexible and boost their productivity.

Mission-critical private wireless network with complementary Wi-Fi layer and connected industrial devices guarantees your always-connected assets in the fully digitalized OT and IT operations. Going digital makes you able to capture data from Industrial IoT (IIoT) sensors, process and analyze it with Industry 4.0 applications and industrial edge computing to stay in full control and then act on it real-time giving automated response to events.

Digitalizing industrial operations enables split-second decisions, processes reconfiguration and attaining new level of efficiencies especially around automation, self-optimization of process improvements and predictive maintenance. Take a step to guarantee your competitive edge and be in full control of your tomorrow. 


Read on to explore the business advantages provided by each solution and find out more about the main decision aspects and what suits the most with your specific challenges and requirements.

Mission-critical connectivity

Industrial edge cloud

The success of many critical OT applications depends on local data management and processing. An industrial edge cloud is an on-premises container compute platform that is tightly integrated with a high-performance network that connects your OT applications. It ensures efficient storage and processing of 75 percent of data processed at the edge.

  • Full data sovereignty with on-premises management and processing
  • High performance, security and resilience to meet the demands of mission-critical OT
  • Low latency and real-time data processing for industrial automation
