Resilient EtherNet/IP Networking – Device Level Ring (DLR)


Presentation (slides)


About this topic

Our April User Group will look at Device Level Ring (DLR) architecture and application.  We will also discuss the application of other resilient Ethernet protocols, such as Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP) rings, Flex Links and EtherChannel.
