How ThousandEyes Helps a Global Manufacturer Ensure Quality for IoT

One of the ways the manufacturer has differentiated its product offerings is through an Internet of Things (IoT) vision that leverages long distance networking to access and control machinery. This is the case with its leading range of drill rigs; these are huge mining rigs that can weigh up to 200 tons and drill to a depth of over 295 feet. By using the network to remotely operate these drill rigs, the manufacturer has been able to consolidate specialist resources and enhance safety. However, this brings its own challenge around network quality and reliability. It was this challenge that the IT team set out to solve. With ThousandEyes, the global manufacturer is helping to ensure network quality through end-to-end visibility of the communications path between their driver and the next 205 ton machine they produce and deploy to the field thousands of miles away.
