For Project Engineers, Integrators and Operators of Industrial Networks
The rapid growth of connected devices in the industrial sector is driving a significant increase in scope and complexity for industrial networks as they converge with more traditional IT networks. In addition, growing concerns about security, availability and performance are associated with costs that can often exceed the initial investment in networking hardware. In this webinar, we introduce a model for understanding an industrial network’s total cost of ownership (TCO), review the top 5 hidden costs that operators face, and share some tips and tools to lower the TCO for industrial control networks.
