Mission critical network design seminar in September

Belden presents the Hirschmann industrial networking conference in Dallas, TX, which will be focused on mission critical network design.


Belden Inc. presents the Hirschmann 2011 Mission Critical Network Design Seminar, September 18-21, 2011, at the Dallas/Plano Marriott at Legacy Town Center in Dallas, Texas.

In today’s highly competitive markets, training is essential to establish and maintain the technical competencies needed for success and advancement. This seminar provides a multitude of high quality training options to fit specific levels of expertise. Unlike other seminars, the Mission Critical Network Design Seminar reportedly focuses on just one particular area of technology: Industrial Ethernet Networking.

Expertise in designing, implementing and maintaining industrial Ethernet networks will be critical as intelligent use of data becomes the difference between market leaders. This seminar will position attendees at the forefront of industrial Ethernet networking, now and in the future.

The seminar is a combination of lecture with hands-on labs to reinforce lecture topics. Attendees can customize their schedule by selecting from 17 different technical sessions and 9 hands-on labs. The organization of each session ensures everyone has an opportunity to take full advantage of the seminar, regardless of his or her level of technical knowledge. The nine hands-on labs will reinforce the topics covered in many of the classes while providing the opportunity to “learn by doing.” 

Presenters with a combined experience of over 150 years will speak on technical topics including Isolating Network Traffic, Implementing Redundancy and Network Security. Each presenter has the experience and technical background to address current technology trends for designing state-of-the art mission critical industrial Ethernet networks in a variety of industries including petrochemical; automotive; and power generation, transmission and distribution.
