What does it look like when all workers at your manufacturing facility can communicate and coordinate
seamlessly from any location, device or network? The time is NOW to imagine a world where devices, networks, and
locations don’t matter. A world where workers from production lines, to plant managers, engineers, security and beyond can
communicate effortlessly and instantly, both on and offsite.
A Unified Team Communications solution from Motorola Solutions is what’s NEXT for your facility to make this all possible.
This guide was created to help you experience how each and every staff member can work smarter, safer, and minimize
unwanted downtime when equipped with intelligence driven communications solutions.
See how Unified Team Communications powers the collaboration between all these workers to
create the next-generation in smart connected manufacturing:
When working with data center and commercial facility electrical systems, shocks of 100mA to more than 2,000mA are possible—definitely in the realm of serious harm to humans and property. Energized electrical equipment also presents the risk of arc flash caused by electrical faults that produce powerful explosions. When dealing with commercial and industrial electrical systems, such as uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) and their batteries, data center and facilities managers need to be aware of these risks, especially since some repair and maintenance procedures require working with a unit that is still energized. There are ways to minimize the risks to employees, equipment and the field technician performing the service.
This paper answers some common questions about UPS maintenance, how to reduce the risks associated with servicing UPSs and batteries, and how to qualify a UPS service provider.
When designing a power protection scheme for their data center, IT and facilities managers must ask themselves whether a distributed or centralized backup strategy makes more sense. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question.
Companies must weigh each architecture’s advantages and disadvantages against their financial constraints, availability needs and management capabilities before deciding which one to employ.
This white paper will simplify the decision-making process and lessen the potential weaknesses of whichever strategy you ultimately select.
Since 2005, organizations have created more workspace changes – eliminating vast (and dull) cubicle farms in favor of community spaces arranged to accomplish several goals including:
• Maximize existing workspace
• Foster more collaboration and teamwork
• Accommodate mobile/remote employees who no longer need a dedicated space in an office building
Hot desking and desk hoteling are workspace strategies that are here to stay. This executive briefing will help any real estate or facility manager understand how to leverage these concepts, adapt to trends and get a return that the finance team will appreciate.
