About the Event
If you could design your factory to be everything you wanted it to be, which technologies would you include? What would your throughput look like? And most importantly...do you have a secure and private network in place to help bring your plans to life?
Join us as we discuss how intelligent wireless infrastructure can accelerate your manufacturing operations and improve your security, reliability, scalability, and integration.

Securing the Future of Manufacturing from Cyber Threats
The manufacturing industry is increasingly reliant on technology and automation, making it vulnerable to cyber attacks. This presentation will consider the potential consequences of a cyber attack on a manufacturing facility such as production downtime, loss of intellectual property and damage to a company’s reputation. Hear examples of real-world cyber attacks on manufacturing facilities and the impact they hand on the companies involved. Discuss best practices for cyber security in manufacturing, including risk assessments, employee training and implementing security controls such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems.
Cybersecurity Advisor Region IV, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Wireless Basics: Reality vs. Hype
This session will cover how wireless networks are the foundational technology enabling connection, management & operation of the physical, digital & biological elements required to reimagine manufacturing.
Automation Sales Manager, Phoenix Contact
The Role of Sls Delivering Digital Transformation
Manufacturers understand the importance of digital transformation to stay competitive and to address challenges related to talent and labor shortages, supply chain resiliency, etc. SIs (industrial system integrators) have always played an enabling role deploying automation solutions. Responding to manufacturer’s demands, they have expanded their solutions scope to support their clients in their digital transformation journeys.

What are Critical Networks and Why Should Manufacturers Care?
For many of the world’s largest businesses, private networks will likely become the preferred choice, especially for industrial environments such as manufacturing plants, logistics centers, and ports. Secure private networks follow the same framework as public cellular networks, but covers a smaller, private area with fewer users. Private networks keep the data local and, on the premises, adding a layer of security and control that many enterprises desire. Private networks can offer better performance, coverage and security than Wi-Fi without the typical costs of high data transfer volume over public cellular. These networks can significantly reduce downtime, ensuring that all devices stay connected while supporting IoT and I4.0 technology.

Critical Network Concerns for Manufacturers
One of the biggest concerns for manufacturers is cybersecurity. Critical networks are often targeted by cybercriminals who seek to steal sensitive data, disrupt operations, or cause damage to equipment. Manufacturers need to ensure that their networks are secure and protected against cyber threats.
As manufacturers grow and expand, their network infrastructure needs to be able to scale to meet their changing needs. Manufacturers need to ensure that their critical networks can handle increased traffic and data volumes without compromising performance or security.
Manufacturers rely heavily on their critical networks to keep their operations running smoothly. Any downtime or disruptions can result in lost productivity, revenue, and customer trust. Manufacturers need to ensure that their networks are reliable and can handle the demands of their operations.
