Corning MobileAccess: Manufacturing & Industrials

by Lauren Dempsey on May 20, 2013

Over the last couple of decades the manufacturing segment in the U.S. has
seen intense competition driven by challenging industry structural issues
(i.e. high labor costs), developing nation’s labor advantages and the rise
of regional process manufacturing expertise in Asia. Despite these
challenges the US represents the largest manufacturing economy in the
world, comprising 21% of global manufactured products. With a highly
skilled labor force, application of modern management practices and
investment in the latest technologies US manufacturers have transformed
what was once thought of as a ‘exported’ industry of the nation’s economy.

U.S manufacturers’ competitive position has specifically been enhanced
due to the application of technologies to improve plant efficiencies and
enable their workforce to be more productive. The productivity enhancements
have allowed domestic manufacturers to reduce the cost of goods sold year
over year since 1995, in contrast to the inflation experienced in many
other market segments. One of the core technologies employed by many
manufacturers has been wireless networks.

Improving asset, inventory and overall plant management through the use of
wireless applications such as RFID tags and scanners or mobile process
management applications has been enabling manufacturers to drive cost out
of the business and improve plant throughput. Manufacturing facilities are
data-driven, and collaborative environments with a highly trained and
mobile workforce running the day-to-day operations---driving a need for
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). Managing multiple systems purchased by
multiple departments over time increases opex and complexity for IT. Having
a single infrastructure solution delivers robust wireless coverage for all
wireless services and operators.

With Corning MobileAccess, you are helping to ensure that your DAS network
does not require forklift future upgrades if spectrum environment changes
or operator agreements phase out. Our ‘future-ready’ capabilities of the
MobileAccess2000 solution, provides IT decision makers with assurance that
their investment will extend well beyond the immediate facilities needs
unlike other network investments. Specifically designed with the needs of
manufacturing in mind, the MobileAccess2000 DAS can accommodate future
services or operator additions without disruption to clinical or
operational areas.
