All technology solutions developed will maximize Customer Co’ current – facility network investments. optimize network communications component zones of coverage and maximize cost effectiveness. Objectives of the OneWireless Network Design Introduction This project objective is to set a detailed view of desired technology solutions. Wireless technology is a key enabler in reaching the objective of field Engineer mobility. This design provides for expansion without jeopardizing capital investment by utilizing materials and equipment that can adapt to or embrace advancing technologies where applicable. Standardsbased interconnectivity This design adheres to open standards-based guidelines to facilitate interconnectivity with other communications services and to provide a generally accepted structure for interoperability with those services. and compatible networks and networking equipment at all levels of the Corporation. Customer Co selected Honeywell to design a wireless communications network for the Refinery and Tank Farm at the – Location facility – a network that is compatible with the Customer Co Global Network Strategy and that establishes a growth path for facility communications. strategic decisions for meeting application needs can be made at the department level with less concern about the underlying communications structure. efficient. Wireless technology can be the foundation for increased flexibility and productivity.Honeywell Executive Overview Overview Introduction Customer Co’ realization of the maximum business advantages from communication technologies depends on acquisition and use of effective.
