Next-generation manufacturing workflows demand next-generation IT infrastructure

The UK remains a world leader in manufacturing, with an annual output of £183 billion in 20221 , but is facing a range of new challenges, from attracting the next generation of tech-savvy talent, to managing global supply chains, and ensuring their intellectual property remains secure in an increasingly complex cyber threat landscape. In response, digital transformation continues to gather speed across the sector, with Industry 4.0, Cloud transformation, AI, and IoT devices establishing themselves as critical aspects of manufacturers’ ongoing growth.

The Exponential-e Group continues to work closely with both UK and global manufacturers to develop leading-edge infrastructure that not only helps meet today’s challenges, but is opening up a new era of flexibility, resilience, and rapid innovation for the sector as a whole.

Entering a new era of manufacturing

Manufacturing is highly dynamic and time-critical, and so infrastructure must evolve to support this. As it does, production and processing times can be fully optimised, with intelligent automation adding a further level of efficiency. However, this requires a new breed of IT infrastructure, with smart IoT technology providing full control and visibility of all physical assets, software-defined networking optimising network performance and resilience, and Cloud transformation enabling stress-free management of largest volumes of data (e.g. CAD files, big data projects). All this must be wrapped in a fully integrated, next-generation security ecosystem that will protect both operational and enterprise assets.

Our Manufacturing Technology Solutions

Software Defined WAN for Retail.

SD-WAN

SD-WAN

The inherent complexity of modern manufacturing demands a high-level view of the entire network, with complete control of the available resources to ensure flexibility and scalability is maintained. SD-WAN provides manufacturers with this level of control, ensuring critical applications and services are available wherever and whenever they are required, while maintaining the very highest standard of data protection.

LAN and WiFi solutions for Manufacturing.

LAN, Wi-Fi, and Private 5G

LAN, Wi-Fi, and Private 5G

Seamless deployment, maximum availability, and intelligent connectivity for all devices, staff, and visitors, across all sites, to support day-to-day operations and guarantee critical applications and data are readily available. This, in turn, supports productive and efficient warehousing, with increased visibility and control of all stock.

Contact Centre as-a-Service from Exponential-e - delivering omni-channel customer services to you manufacturing facility.

Contact Centre as-a-Service

Contact Centre as-a-Service

Customers and end users increasingly expect seamless, omnichannel customer service, which means the contact centre has, in many instances, become the focal point of customer and employee experience (CX) strategies. Exponential-e’s CCaaS solution puts all the tools customer service agents need to deliver successful resolutions at their fingertips, whether they’re working from the contact centre, at home, or on the move.

Cyber Security for manufacturing.

Cyber Security

Cyber Security

The rise of the IoT and increasing interconnection of physical and digital systems has created a number of new attack vectors and potential vulnerabilities that cyber criminals are already looking to exploit. In response, we deliver leading-edge security ecosystems that draw on our knowledge of IT/OT integration, the latest best practice, and the IEC 62443 standard, which addresses cyber security in operational technology.

Cloud Solutions for Manufacturing.

Cloud

Cloud

Cloud transformation, managed by experienced specialists who are deeply aware of the manufacturing sector’s unique challenges, opens the door to a range of AI, big data, and machine learning projects. The right public, private, or hybrid Cloud solution enables more effective, data-driven decision making about every aspect of the manufacturing process - from optimising efficiency and reducing costs to improving health & safety.

Internet of Things (IoT).

IoT

IoT

IoT technology is increasingly critical across the manufacturing sector. As a result, the underlying infrastructure must be able to support the creation, transfer, and storage of the highest volumes of data. With this foundation in place, data can be translated into actionable insights that optimise operational efficiency, onsite safety, seamless asset tracking, and full visibility of global supply chains. Exponential-e offers integrated solutions to support these developments, bringing together IT and OT to deliver secure, highly available services that offer full visibility and control of the entire manufacturing process.
