Fully Harness the Power of Industrial IP
A critical decision confronted industrial automation companies near the end of the 20th century: Would they develop network architectures using open standards supported by the Internet Protocol?
WLAN Configuration Recommendations
Summary of the configuration recommendations for EtherNet/IP when used in wireless configurations extracted from a recent Rockwell Automation/Cisco Authored white paper
Software Defined Networks
Software defined networks (SDNs) are a hot topic at the enterprise-level. The reasons vary – but they’re piling up. The most promising – and potentially profitable – benefit of a SDN is its potential in making the network directly programmable.
Virtualization and EtherNet/IP
What is virtualization, and what value propositions result from combining it with open network protocol? Where is it possible to see the combination in action?
Best-in-Class Thinking for Industrial Networks
There are many reasons to choose EtherNet/IP. Primary among them: the platform’s proven reputation for enduring flexibility and high-speed performance – two valuable attributes for producers who need to ensure 100 percent network availability.
