Belden offers an Ethernet seminar.Industrial Ethernet networking has become mission critical, according to Belden Inc. (BDC-NYSE) a designer and manufacturer of cable, connectivity and network advice is serving up advice through its Hirschmann brand. According to Belden, considerations when designing an Ethernet network include:

  • Redundancy capabilities;
  • Managing multicast traffic;
  • Isolating network traffic;
  • Wireless options and areas of application;
  • Network security;
  • Network management issues;
  • Physical layer cabling and testing for reliable Ethernet network design;
  • Switch selection and functionality, and passive versus active technologies;
  • Migrating legacy devices to Ethernet;
  • Ethernet , fiber-optic, and non-Ethernet network cabling options; and
  • Industry-specific needs or considerations for petrochemical, automotive, and power generation, transmission and distribution.

Belden will address these and other industrial Ethernet topics in detail in its Hirschmann 2010 Mission Critical Network Design Seminar, Sept. 19-22, 2010, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, FL. About the seminar, the company says, “Expertise in designing, implementing and maintaining industrial Ethernet networks will be critical as intelligent use of data” provides market differentiation among competitors.

The seminar is intended for system integrators; network design engineers (with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) or Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) firms); and anyone involved with the design, implementation and maintenance of mission critical Ethernet networks. During the seminar, Belden says, attendees will learn how to effectively reduce costs and installation time by implementing a highly resilient network design.

Hands-on labs, as well as information specific to distributors and system integrators, will be available. For more information or to register on line, go to
