Our 4-Step Process


Agilix, in coordination with Rockwell Automation, take a multi-disciplined approach to studying your network infrastructure and technology and presenting opportunities to improve your operations.


This service looks at the physical layer, network configuration and all active nodes on the plant network. The network and its status are assessed using the Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) design guidelines developed jointly by Rockwell Automation and Cisco to address manufacturing network standards.



The process begins with a team meeting so that we can discuss your data requirements.



We will conduct an on-site interview and physical plant walk-through. We’ll gather physical infrastructure information during the site walk-through, and logical and security information during the on-site interview.



We will analyze the collected data and compile a final report. This report will provide an in-depth overview of network architecture along with recommended actions. Each section will be rated on criticality to the impact of your operations, so you know what will make the largest impact.


You will receive a Network Assessment Scorecard rating the following categories:

  • Network Architecture
  • Network Management
  • Network Cabinets
  • Network Switch Rooms
  • Power Redundancy
  • Power Backup
  • Cable Media
  • Cable Termination
  • Cable Management
  • Cable Pathways
  • Grounding/Bonding
  • Labeling

The assessment reviews key areas of your industrial network and identifies deficiencies within the design or implementation. Deficiencies are noted as critical, major or minor, and the required steps to mitigate concerns are discussed in detail.



We will review the assessment, discuss remediation, and help you develop an action plan. We present possible solutions to each problem and suggestions for improvement. You, the customer, make the final decisions regarding which steps take place next.
