What are mission-critical network solutions?
Mission-critical network solutions refer to infrastructure networks capable of carrying large quantities of data (often across international boundaries) and transmitting information that is either essential to national security and safety, or of high commercial and financial value.
It can provide the technology to build a modern, nationwide public safety network. Examples are dedicated networks used by public institutions such as the police and the fire service for both day-to-day operations and in times of emergency. Effective communication is vital to first responders.
However, mission-critical network solutions increasingly refer to infrastructure in the corporate world. Again, reliable and large-scale coordination and accurate communication is often essential. Our mission-critical clients need to know their systems have multiple layers of resilience, optimised traffic flows and cyber security to minimise disruption to any element of their service.
Keeping downtime to an absolute minimum
The reason is simple. Our clients have high-value networks where downtime needs to be kept to an absolute minimum: when a prestigious motor dealership lost connectivity between buildings during a recent storm, it was unable to apply firmware updates to vehicles in service. As restoring the existing connectivity was not an immediate option, a point-to-point microwave link was installed within 24 hours to solve the problem. The original link was repaired subsequently to provide full resilience.
Express Data specialists work across a wide range of industries, from retail to transport, manufacturing, education and healthcare. In fact network outages are unacceptable in most industries.
Mission-critical networks therefore provide organisations with an optimised, resilient, reliable, highly secure and scalable infrastructure. They may be built on wired, wireless, copper, fibre and point-to-point technology and will often involve interconnection with other network attached solutions such as BMS and OEE.
Express Data has a team of experts able to provide core networking infrastructure, network management, operational and business support systems, and analytics. These capabilities ensure mission-critical grade performance in areas such as network availability, coverage and capacity, and security.
