About this topic:

This discussion will review considerations to help you design and deploy a scalable, reliable, safe and future-ready EtherNet/IP network infrastructure. Topics will include segmentation techniques, data prioritization, resiliency, structure and hierarchy.

Concepts to be covered will include:

  • Smart Industrial IoT Devices
    • EtherNet/IP Industrial IoT Technology, Hardened, ODVA Conformance Tested
  • Managed Infrastructure –Stratix IES for:
    • Zoning (segmentation), Resiliency, Security, Diagnostics
  • Zoning (Segmentation)
    • Logical Model based on Standards
    • Physical –e.g. CIP Bridge
    • Switch Hierarchy (L2/L3), VLANs, Firewalls
    • Software-Defined Virtual, Secure Group Tags
  • Resiliency
    • Robust Physical Layer
    • Redundant Paths with Resiliency Protocols
    • Redundant Switches, Wireless and Firewalls
  • Time-critical Data
    • Data Prioritization via Quality of Service (QoS)
    • Time Synchronization via IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and CIP Sync™
  • Holistic Defense-in-Depth Security
    • Multiple Layers, at different IACS Levels, with diverse technology, implemented by different personas
  • Convergence-ready
    • Network Address Translation (NAT)
