Guidelines for industrial Ethernet infrastructure implementation: A control engineer's guide

Download Now


As part of a continuing effort to make their organizations more efficient and flexible, manufacturers are rapidly migrating to industrial Ethernet technology to network their industrial automation and control systems. The use of standard Ethernet technology enables organizations to control costs by moving from costly plant-optimized networks to a proven technology that is simpler to integrate, requires widely available skills, and is more secure and reliable while still meeting real-time traffic requirements.

This white paper provides an overview of Ethernet technology and implementation guidelines to implement in the both control and information networking environment. It discusses the requirements and consideration in implementing a switched Ethernet architecture in industrial networking environments.
