FOLLOWING CLOSELY on the recent announcement of the company’s comprehensive asset performance management focus, Invensys Process Systems announced its strategy for wireless communications. Utilizing a comprehensive managed network approach, Invensys’ wireless strategy centers around shared access point technology and common data and security models for all wireless devices – regardless of vendor or application. Unlike point solutions, Invensys’ comprehensive approach provides the foundation to ensure appropriate levels of integration, robustness, and security for all industrial and enterprise wireless applications.

Harry Forbes, ARC Advisory Group, commented, "The wisest part the Invensys strategy is to offer manufacturers a single managed service that encompasses multiple wireless technologies, applications, and devices. Both in manufacturing and other sectors, end-users need solutions based on wireless, rather than new components and technologies that they must design, deploy, and manage themselves.”
