Futureproofing Networks Is Not Easy
A single unified, converged IT/OT network is expected to not only increase efficiency and system reliability, but also significantly simplifies the network structure and ultimately bring down the TCO. Some forward-looking technologies, like TSN (time-sensitive networking), are already being pioneered by several industry players looking to attain this promising goal.
While this may still sound like the distant future to most businesses, gradually upgrading network infrastructure to meet planned out transformation needs could be an ideal approach for many businesses. However, with a vast amount of product and design options, investing in futureproof networking for seamless data connectivity can be difficult without running into some common hurdles that can hinder efforts.
