The importance of high-performance, highly-available and secure OT (Operational Technology) networks has never been greater. Furthermore, with connectivity being central to the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), these demands are only likely to increase.
As industrial networks migrate from proprietary networks to IP-based networks, those who are responsible for developing and maintaining these networks are faced with the considerable challenge of managing the underlying complexity and scope of technologies that were developed for the IT world.
Whilst there are many excellent network training courses and accreditation schemes available, they are not generally positioned towards the needs, or experience levels, of the Automation Engineer who is tasked with managing todays Ethernet based industrial networks.
To help diffuse the complexities, we have developed a series of webinars that focus on the basics of industrial networking, industrial network switching, and industrial network security.
