System Networking vs. Required Networking
Industrial communication networks are the backbone of digitization
Machine and system communications are rapidly increasing. Networks act as a lifeline for data streams. To guarantee successful digitization you have to have powerful and reliable network technology.
Today’s production facilities have to be flexible and easy to change. As a result, the design of the network topology is key to ensuring the data-related functional reliability of the machines and systems and to make sure it is in line with current requirements. It is also important to check the concept for redundant connections through continuous segmentation and unrestricted access to the higher-level networks.
