Boost Safety, Visibility, and Control
Extracting minerals and producing metals is difficult. Also, mining and materials companies are often pursuing resources in remote, hazardous locations. Safety is always a top priority, as companies strive to reduce harm to employees as well as the environment. Cost control and better asset management are critical as well.
To manage these concerns, you need an integrated view of your entire mining and metals production and operations. This view should deliver better visibility and traceability. You also need a solution that helps you take advantage of comprehensive, IP-enabled technologies in each environment.
Working with industry-leading partners, Cisco can help you fully connect and integrate all of your operational environments. We apply an integrated approach to converge your existing office IT network with this new, consolidated operational technology network.
