The debate about Ethernet’s viability on the plant floor is no longer an issue for most engineers. Their concerns now focus on the variety of specifications and possibilities for industrial Ethernet—ranging from protocols, switch architectures, and Power over Ethernet to safety concerns, legacy network connection issues, and wireless possibilities.

To address these concerns, this Webcast explores:

  • Assessing Ethernet protocols based on need;

  • Deciding on the use of managed or unmanaged network switches;

  • Ethernet architecture options;

  • Power over Ethernet;

  • Ethernet’s role in intelligent safety networks;

  • IGMP snooping; and

  • Coexistence of wired and wireless Ethernet
