Project Spotlight: Taylored Installation at Central Indiana Ethanol

Here at Taylored Systems, we’re good at what we do — helping businesses streamline their workflows and improve their physical and digital security with creative IT solutions. But we also love what we do, especially when it means we get to support local businesses that serve our local population and economy. 

We believe in the power of community — it’s just one of the reasons why the majority of Taylored employees have been a part of the staff for more than 10 years. Building and fostering solid relationships with the people and businesses in our community is one of our top priorities. That’s why when local business Central Indiana Ethanol asked us for help on a project, we were happy to cover their IT needs.

Cat6 Cabling: A Must for Businesses That Need Fast and Reliable Network Performance

Central Indiana Ethanol, LLC (CIE) operates a 50-million-gallon per year dry-mill ethanol plant in nearby Marion, Indiana, that produces industrial-graded, denatured fuel, anhydrous alcohol, and related products. It also provides feed and other products. But meeting the supply needs of our community — with such high output — is a complex task that requires the plant to be firing on all cylinders at all times, from the plant floor to the IT infrastructure that serves as the backbone of the organization. 

On the IT side of things, we wanted to make sure that their internal workflows were streamlined and supported. Our first step at CIE was to install the hardened ethernet switches for all the scales electrics to work, including the cameras and signage. Then, we pulled the Cat6 cable to help improve performance. Cat6, or Category 6 cable, a type of copper cabling, is a must for businesses that need fast and reliable network performance with reduced chance of signal degradation. It optimizes bandwidth, the speed of internet access, which plays a major role in a business’s day-to-day activities.

That’s because heavy tasks like HD video conferencing, large file transfers and downloads, and storing footage from a security camera are incredibly data heavy. This can cause enormous bandwidth strain, which slows down devices and can result in unnecessary downtime and therefore a loss in productivity and even sales. But Cat6 cabling streamlines those workloads to avoid enormous bandwidth strain — and by doing so, it speeds up devices, making the people and the processes behind a business or plant faster and more efficient. 

Cat6 cabling also future-proofs the installation, allowing everything to run from it‚ including video, voice, wireless access points and signage. It’s a valuable investment for a business’s future, by increasing speed and flexibility and providing a communications framework to help drive success.
