How to Optimize the Network for Extreme Conditions
Just as ice formation can stop the flow of a river, extreme temperatures can stop the flow of data from remote operations. Because modern facilities and control systems run on information, even a brief interruption to data flow can introduce significant risk to operations. Keeping switches and the systems that depend on them functioning requires an understanding of how extreme conditions affect performance, knowledge of the different types of switches and their limitations, and an understanding of the features required to mitigate changing conditions. This white paper explores ways to optimize the network for maximum uptime.
