Information needs Industrial IT

As specialists in process automation, we also know our way around qualified IT infrastructures. As a Microsoft Gold Partner with a focus on "Networking Infrastructure Solutions", CTE is designed for highly available, long-term usable and, above all, secure networks.

Our services are aimed at manufacturing companies that require comprehensive expertise in terms of software and hardware. The basis of IIOT and Industry 4.0 consists of highly communicative, fully networked systems. However, they must first and foremost be stable in order to remain operational. They must be both scalable and performant. As well as industrial networks, our in-depth expertise covers cyber security, back-up & disaster recovery and firewalls.
