Connected Cloud Solutions For Manufacturing
The rapid convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) in the manufacturing industry has meant that manufacturers need to constantly innovate to remain competitive. This has had a significant impact on cyber security within the industry as it demands solutions that minimise downtime, mitigate risk and protect intellectual property.
The manufacturing industry is undergoing rapid change and with the integration of business units, devices and technologies leading the way to a future of smart factories, you need a partner that can support these changes. Our services range from consulting and providing connectivity via our queen’s award winning network, to IT and cloud managed services, mobile and IoT, cyber security and unified communications and contact centre services.
Whether you are a single-site factory or a multi-site, multi-national organisation, a robust and resilient connection is business critical. We can help you communicate with cloud-based systems, send and receive orders, track logistics and customers, and generally help your company maximise its productivity.
At FluidOne, our market-leading software-defined network, Platform One, enables you to connect to other offices, cloud applications and a variety of systems and portals with ease. It can also allow you to deliver Wi-Fi and provide voice and unified communication services, as well as secure your network and data by offering a seamless, consistent service across all of your locations.
Securing Against Increased Cyber Threats
Cyber security is now a key requirement for all sectors and an effective cyber strategy requires a proactive approach and sophisticated solutions. At FluidOne, we can ensure that your smart factory remains secure with monitoring, detection, protection, response and training services to instill a cyber first mentality into your organisation.
With attacks on operational technology systems on the rise, at FluidOne we have invested in a dedicated cyber division run by some of the brightest minds in the industry to keep our customers a step ahead of the cyber criminals.
Secure collaboration between employees, contractors and suppliers requires access to data apps, even those that consume the most data, both anytime and anywhere, with the ability to connect efficiently and securely. Our SD-WAN solutions, such as VMware Velocloud, Fortinet, Cisco and ZScaler, empower teams, whilst ensuring IT remains in control.
Unified Communications Solutions
Our market-leading UC solutions can help you to connect your staff to your production line for optimum efficiency. As we move towards smart factories, staff interactions need to be smart and it’s not practical for staff to be communicating with each other on one system, with machines on a second and customers on a third.
Bring your teams and customers closer together, irrespective of their location with tools such as Microsoft Office 365, Teams, Mitel and 8x8. By creating a truly connected workforce, you can improve productivity and customer service, all while reducing the costs of legacy systems.
Modernise Your IT Systems
It’s essential that your devices are optimised to manage the changing needs of your smart factories and we can help. Monitor and control processes, streamline your operations and gain usable insights to improve efficiency.
