Ensuring network efficiency and secure communication within low-quality links.
With Resources and Utilities operations increasingly being automated and often operating with few IT staff (e.g. at mine sites, wind farms, hydro plants, water treatment facilities) they are at increased vulnerability to security breaches.
Resources and Utilities companies operate businesses that span large geographic distances, with remote facilities typically having limited communication and network infrastructure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about Netlinkz products in utilities
How does VSN improve Network Security?
The Resources and Utilities sector relies heavily on investment. Information about a resource companies’ operations can be extremely market sensitive. Exploration activities and new discoveries must be kept secret until adequately protected through legal means.
VSN offers a secure channel through which Resources and Utilities companies can privately communicate both at remote sites as well as across the enterprise’s geographic locations.
How does VSN improve Network access?
Netlinkz can protect Resources and Utilities operations and their communications by using the VSN to secure connections between facilities so traffic cannot be intercepted.
VSN secures communications within a facility to prevent unauthorised access by segmenting the networks within a facility in order to protect mission critical systems from delaying/failing. VSN also allows secure remote access via an “always on” connection.
How does VSN improve reliability and cost?
VSN overlays across any existing network and does not require any hardware. VSN also requires zero-touch client configuration making it easy to deploy.
The overlay provides encrypted peer-to-peer and mesh connections, reducing bandwidth consumption and allowing individuals to securely control how they share or block data within the organisation which can also increase reliability and speed of data transfer.
The ability of VSN to support secure enterprise-wide multi-office communications and multi-country communications as well as IoT is crucial for Resources and Utilities operations. VSN supports connected operational sites which require optimisation of communication links to securely support a variety of activities such as autonomous vehicles, conveyor belts, surveys and many activities to improve health and safety. VSN also supports many other connected industry use case operations such as connected Wind Farms, Water Treatment, Water Quality, Hydro Electric operations as just a few examples.
