At ARC Advisory Group's recent India Forum in Hyderabad, experts from across industry deliberated on enterprise and industrial network strategies that can help organizations achieve better performance. Industrial networking includes integrating industrial factory floor and process plant networks with enterprise networks.
A number of industrial network standards have emerged to help address today's requirements for reliability and multi-vendor interoperability. Examples of industrial communication networks include FOUNDATION fieldbus, CC-Link, Profibus, EtherNet/IP, and Ethernet POWERLINK. Many are based on IEC and other industry standards in the same manner that Ethernet is based on the IEEE standards.
Executives from Fieldbus Foundation India Committee (FFIC), Alstom Power Automation & Controls, Indian Profibus Profinet Association (IPA), CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA), and ARC Advisory Group shared their thoughts about the trends in industrial communication and networking solutions.
