Industrial facilities are required to meet compliance requirements – or face fines and potential production shutdowns. Oftentimes compliance with regulatory standards has no tangible payback and is therefore hard to justify using the usual business case analysis techniques. An open, reliable wireless application infrastructure with facility wide coverage offers another tool to achieve regulatory compliance quicker, easier, and with less expense in capital investment.
When evaluating which technologies and systems will help your facility meet mandate requirements in a thoughtful, cost-effective and timely manner – and one that delivers added value to your facility, consider wireless technologies. Wireless technologies allow you to deploy applications that could never be deployed using cables and the cost savings with wireless versus wired have been proven. A wireless infrastructure can be deployed at 10-20% of the cost of wired systems. More importantly, these wireless systems can installed in less than 10% of the time of wired systems – with only about 5-10% of the operational impact on the organization.
As Apprion continues to develop and enhance our ION System, we consider compliance mandates a top priority in our feature and functionality requirements. As such, our product architects designed IONosphere to address all network management functionality required to operate a secure, wireless infrastructure in compliance with industry mandates and without retrofitting your existing network infrastructure when adding new technologies and applications. Apprion assures that your facility can continue a "plug and play" approach as you seamlessly add new wireless solutions to the network infrastructure. You maintain a competitive advantage as technology evolves because you have implemented an extensible solution in accordance with current and future industry mandates.
