PDA evaluated a facility’s industrial network to assess and give recommendations for a full network upgrade. The network utilized legacy equipment and was comprised of multiple revisions/additions throughout years. Documentation and a lack of standards/best practices for network scalability were not considered when revising the network architecture. The network, consisting of both wired and wireless telemetries, was documented – including implementation for Cybersecurity Protocols and specifications written for a complete upgrade with trade contractor solicitations for a turnkey estimate.
This network evaluation consisted of an investigation of plant network equipment to deliver a network architecture design which proposed the required upgrades, a scope document detailing the additional upgrades and recommendations, and a proposed cost to turnkey deliver the recommendations including installation. A wireless telemetry study was performed along with the network mapping of 7 network distribution sites. A cost analysis of new equipment, strategies of Cybersecurity implementations, and a deployment plan were developed as part of the documentation set. PDA built a bid specification for trade contractors and hosted bid walkthroughs for network media installation to provide the client with a complete turnkey solution.
The facility evaluated is one of three facilities that total 329,000 square feet and over 300 employees.
