Informative insight from across the Industrial IP community that will help you with your own deployment of the technology and operational management.
Paul Brooks from Rockwell Automation reflects on lessons learned as a controls specialist attending Cisco Live! in Milan, the premier networking event for IT specialists.
Using Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) for Motion control will free engineers to develop more innovative and highly integrated solutions, increasing the level of user benefits delivered by control systems and machines.
Looking at the emergence of classifications in the context of the connected enterprise and the internet of things, including static and moving asset types, and how data access throughout the network can help to enhance efficiency and productivity
If the value of connecting a device is greater than the risk, it is a sound candidate for consideration. If it is put on the network, standard Ethernet IP technology and best practices must be employed.
Multiple-in-Multiple-Out (MIMO) is a new technology adopted by new IEEE 802.11Wi-Fi standards. Under 802.11n and 802.11ac, the antennas in the access points are able to use this interference constructively.
Inbar Lasser of Cisco contends for network convergence during the IoT World Forum. Unlike road networks - sized based on today’s behavior and usage - manufacturers must size networks for what we hope to do tomorrow.
Being inside your safety zone doesn’t always mean you’re safe – sometimes the threat is coming from inside too. Industrial businesses need to care in defending against these interior threats by physically securing the network from the inside out.
When deploying open, IP-enabled information environments, it makes sense to look beyond the obvious industrial devices and consider the value of commercial technology like video in combination with emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality.
