Adding Industrial Toughness and Reliability to Ethernet
Today, automation control systems are expected to provide greater operational visibility of manufacturing processes throughout the organization, from field sites to the control room, so as to reduce the cost of operations, maximize return, and ensure operator safety. However, manufacturers who try to deploy an integrated industrial network face one unique challenge: their network is more vulnerable in the control room than at field sites.
