Digital Networking for Shipyards

Cisco will showcase how you can leverage an Intent-Based Networking architecture to securely connect users, devices, sensors, and machines to drive improved production and streamline processes in MRO.

There are five key elements of an MRO Intent-Based Network Architecture that will serve as the platform to drive and deliver shipyard digital transformation:

  1. Security
  2. Convergence of IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operational Technology)
  3. Wireless
  4. Collaboration technology
  5. Data management

The Network is the Platform for Responsive MRO Operations. With Cisco’s proven Connected Manufacturing solutions, you have access to more accurate and timely information throughout your organization and supply chain. Better information allows you to make better-informed decisions more quickly. Collaboration tools and enhanced communications can also help you manage increasingly complex production lines and introduce new and updated products more quickly and efficiently.

The Cisco Connected portfolio of solutions help you be more connected, responsive, and competitive throughout the value chain. They can help you:

The power of Intent-based networking will accelerate your efforts to transform and optimize shipyard or depot operations. Applying software-defined networking in the local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) and application environment (from edge, to network, to data center, to cloud) will create a platform that delivers visibility, automation and orchestration to ensure the network functions in concert with the commander’s intent. This intent-based network driven platform will also deliver foundational security that leverages role-based identity management enabling zero trust-based cybersecurity coupled with threat-based cybersecurity to ensure cyber resilience that allows MRO operations to prepare for, adapt to, withstand and rapidly recover from attacks. This platform will enable the MRO team to leverage emerging technologies such as WiFi-6, 5G cellular, LoRaWAN, etc. A comprehensive roadmap will help the U.S. Navy build the intent-based networking platform that will maximize the return on investments in shipyard optimization.
