Due to the nature of this manufacturing environment, special considerations were required to protect the primary networking equipment.
A NEMA 12 enclosure was installed to protect this equipment from dust and dirt, and included a cooling system and a battery backup system.
In addition to the NEMA 12 enclosure, other measures were taken to minimize downtime, including: a failover router for Internet access, a server failover system with 15-minute
syncronization cycles, and RAID drives on primary and failover servers.
All desktops were upgraded to SSDs for performance and reliability, as well as the maximum memory each supported.
