Re­qui­re­ments specification 

Ana­ly­zing your use ca­ses and re­qui­re­ments & tech­no­lo­gy matching 

Selec­ting and im­ple­men­ting the matching wire­less tech­no­lo­gy for your in­di­vi­du­al in­du­stri­al ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons re­qui­res a com­pre­hen­si­ve ana­ly­sis of all use ca­ses, sce­n­a­ri­os, and re­qui­re­ments with a de­di­ca­ted awa­reness of your cu­sto­mer-spe­ci­fic en­vi­ron­ments and needs. 

Joint­ly with you, we de­ve­lop a port­fo­lio of tailo­red so­lu­ti­ons for your ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons. For this pur­po­se, we ana­ly­ze your exi­sting busi­ness pro­ces­ses to trans­fer the ex­trac­ted re­qui­re­ments into in­di­vi­du­al and ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-spe­ci­fic so­lu­ti­ons for you. 

The ob­jec­ti­ve is to trans­form the re­qui­re­ments into cu­sto­mer- or ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-spe­ci­fic net­work con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons and pro­to­cols. A tech­ni­cal eva­lua­ti­on and com­pa­ri­son of cam­pus net­work so­lu­ti­ons as well as sui­ta­ble in­du­stry-spe­ci­fic end de­vices are es­sen­ti­al for crea­ting a tailo­red net­work de­sign ba­sed on your cu­sto­mer re­qui­re­ment. Our use case ma­nage­ment so­lu­ti­ons sup­port you in pro­fes­sio­nal­ly do­cu­men­ting, ma­na­ging and fur­ther de­ve­lo­ping your ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons du­ring the plan­ning pha­se as well as the ope­ra­ting pha­se. 


Net­work Planning 

A cam­pus net­work plan­ned to meet your us­able re­qui­re­ments, ta­king into ac­count cur­rent and fu­ture re­qui­re­ments and the in­du­stry-spe­ci­fic busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment, is trans­for­med into reality. 

AIN pro­vi­des net­work plan­ning for our cu­sto­mers in three pha­ses. With the de­sign plan­ning we crea­te a cu­sto­mer-spe­ci­fic co­verage con­cept with a cost esti­ma­te. In the fur­ther plan­ning sta­ges, we work with our cu­sto­mers to achie­ve a hig­her le­vel of de­tail in the net­work de­sign, which at the end of the plan­ning pro­cess leads to an exe­cu­ta­ble plan with a ser­vice spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on rea­dy for ten­de­ring. Net­work plan­ning ta­kes into ac­count the en­ti­re si­gnal flow in a cam­pus net­work, from sen­sors to ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-spe­ci­fic ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons. 

With this three-sta­ge plan­ning pro­cess, we en­ab­le you to make in­ter­nal bud­get de­ci­si­ons and to com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly trans­fer your in­du­stri­al ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons into a net­work de­sign. 

Net­work deployment 

The chal­len­ge in set­ting up a cam­pus net­work lies in the pro­fes­sio­nal in­te­gra­ti­on of the sy­stems into the customer’s pro­cess environment. 

In coope­ra­ti­on with strong part­ners, AIN fo­cu­ses on im­ple­men­ting the net­work plan­ning coor­di­na­ted with you into your cor­po­ra­te pro­ces­ses. Ba­sed on a joint site sur­vey, the con­struc­tion and in­te­gra­ti­on of the cam­pus net­work is coor­di­na­ted with your re­pre­sen­ta­ti­ves on site, and the time­li­ne is trans­fer­red to a frame­work sche­du­le. Net­work de­ploy­ment is com­ple­ted with de­tail­ed ac­cep­t­ance tests ba­sed on a test pro­ce­du­re that has been agreed with you. Upon com­ple­ti­on of net­work de­ploy­ment and in­te­gra­ti­on, a de­tail­ed do­cu­men­ta­ti­on is han­ded over, which con­tains your cu­sto­mer-spe­ci­fic site and net­work in­for­ma­ti­on and is in­ten­ded to ser­ve as an in­iti­al set of in­for­ma­ti­on for the ope­ra­ti­on of your cam­pus net­work. 

Our lean de­ploy­ment and in­te­gra­ti­on pro­cess en­ab­les you to ful­ly uti­li­ze your in­du­stry-spe­ci­fic ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons from day one. 

Net­work ope­ra­ti­on and soft­ware development 

Our cu­sto­mers have high de­man­ds on the ope­ra­ti­on of a cam­pus net­work re­gar­ding the con­ti­nui­ty of ser­vices for cri­ti­cal in­fra­st­ruc­tures. The sta­te-of-the-art ope­ra­ti­on in in­du­stri­al net­works is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by a con­ti­nuous de­ve­lo­p­ment of use ca­ses and their im­ple­men­ta­ti­on in the live operation. 

We de­ve­lop an ope­ra­ti­ons mo­del that is tailo­red to your spe­ci­fic re­qui­re­ments and ta­kes into ac­count the in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal pro­cess in­ter­faces. We ad­opt your ope­ra­ting pro­ces­ses and estab­lish an ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-spe­ci­fic ope­ra­ti­on, which is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by a con­ti­nuous de­ve­lo­p­ment of your ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons and their in­te­gra­ti­on in the ef­fec­ti­ve ope­ra­ti­on. By pro­vi­ding on-site sup­port and set­ting up a cu­sto­mer help desk, we en­su­re 1st and 2nd le­vel sup­port. 

The con­ti­nuous ope­ra­ti­on of a cam­pus net­work is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by the de­ve­lo­p­ment and in­tro­duc­tion of new use ca­ses in a cu­sto­mer-spe­ci­fic en­vi­ron­ment. Our ope­ra­tio­nal sup­port al­lo­ws you to con­cen­tra­te on the fur­ther de­ve­lo­p­ment of your core busi­ness. 

End-to-end so­lu­ti­ons

In cam­pus net­works, re­qui­re­ments from the au­to­ma­ti­on sec­tor meet the re­qui­re­ments for stan­dar­diz­a­ti­on of te­le­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons net­works. The pre­re­qui­si­te for suc­cess­ful in­te­gra­ti­on of cu­sto­mer re­qui­re­ments is a con­si­stent end-to-end view of all si­gnal flows in the cam­pus network. 

Pri­or to the de­ve­lo­p­ment and im­ple­men­ta­ti­on of your use ca­ses, we rely on a ho­li­stic ana­ly­sis of the si­gnal flows in the cam­pus net­work. In do­ing so, we eva­lua­te your cu­sto­mer- or ap­p­li­ca­ti­on-spe­ci­fic net­work con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons and pro­to­cols, de­ve­lop the cam­pus net­work so­lu­ti­on that fits your re­qui­re­ments, and eva­lua­te sui­ta­ble in­du­stry-spe­ci­fic ter­mi­nal de­vices. In ac­cordance with the ope­ra­tor mo­del that fits your ap­p­li­ca­ti­on en­vi­ron­ment, we im­ple­ment an end-to-end so­lu­ti­on. 

In all pha­ses of de­ve­lo­p­ment, plan­ning and im­ple­men­ta­ti­on, we sup­port you with our ex­per­ti­se in au­to­ma­ti­on and te­le­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons.
