“As manufacturers seek to realize the many benefits that Industry 4.0 promises, attention is typically drawn to smarter manufacturing processes that require technologies such as edge computing, SDN-ready wired and wireless infrastructure and cloud services.” said Chris Elliott, managing director of Allied Telesis International B.V. (U.K.)

“We’re delighted to be recognized by the readers of Network Computing for our industrial wired capabilities, which is becoming an important capability for our customers as they seek to drive greater efficiency and cost savings from their smart manufacturing, smart city and connected enterprise projects.”

Allied Telesis recently launched its innovative Secure Enterprise SDN (SES) solution that adds intelligence and programmability to traditional networks using SDN principles, improving real-time responsiveness for day-to-day operations and potentially damaging security threats and cyber-attacks. Developed to meet the growing demand for SDN-like capabilities for traditional, non-data center applications, SES enables rich programmability and control over OpenFlow enabled infrastructure, such as Allied Telesis xSeries switches and TQ-series wireless access points. SES is supported with a rich application suite delivered through a diverse ecosystem of technology partners to help its customers build fully-compliant SDN/NFV networks.
