Driving Manufacturing Reliability and Coverage with Private LTE Networks
Manufacturers are scrambling to update their outdated systems to make them compatible with Industry 4.0 - an industry built upon innovative technologies like Private LTE networks. Private LTEs give manufacturers two key benefits: they can speed up machine-machine and human-machine communication, while also providing reliable connectivity even in environments where other wireless signals might struggle (such as outdoors).
L&T Technologies Services was onboarded for a similar project by a North American company to help transition its factories worldwide to these newer connectivity standards. A team of LTTS engineers designed, delivered, and installed a private LTE connection for the client's existing AMR system. The existing equipment was connected seamlessly to the new cellular network to avoid redundancies.
Intelli-Agent, a proprietary LTTS solution, was deployed to evaluate and analyze signal strength, throughput, latency, and reliability on the factory floor. Utilizing machine vision technologies helped us reduce costs, improve safety, and shorten installation times.
