The global pandemic brought unprecedented supply chain disruptions, and businesses worldwide had to confront significant challenges. Mesh Global, an experienced systems integrator, faced a particularly daunting task – a looming obsolescence of components in their older hardware. With a scarcity of supply and a mounting demand for their products, Mesh Global needed a quick, reliable, and robust solution to keep their operations going and their customers satisfied.
What We Did:
When faced with a challenge, Ignitec delivers. Harnessing the strengths of our multi-disciplinary team, we addressed Mesh Global’s problem head-on. A comprehensive redesign of the problematic control PCB was initiated, replacing the obsolete relays with generic high-power MOSFETs and other easily substitutable components. To ensure increased safety and reliability, dual redundancy was incorporated into the design, offering Mesh Global a robust solution to their problem. By utilising readily available components, the redesigned hardware was effectively future-proofed, capable of enduring future supply chain disruptions.
Our Subsea Hardware Solution delivered more than just a fix to a pressing issue. It served as a foundation for future growth and sustainability for Mesh Global. With the updated and robust product design, Mesh Global could meet their existing order commitments and effectively communicate with their customers, resulting in increased sales. Furthermore, the redesign future-proofed their product, promising easy and cost-effective updates as required in the future. As a result, Mesh Global experienced substantial cost savings and boosted their business sustainability in the long term.
