Five Future Challenges for Industrial Ethernet Switches


The benefits of IP convergence, such as enhanced efficiency, improved manageability and lower total cost of ownership, have long been the driving force behind the impressive growth in the number of industrial Ethernet deployments for supervisory and control-level applications. This paper will discuss how future industrial Ethernet networks can introduce new challenges for industrial switch reliability, bandwidth availability, switch security, switch manageability and network redundancy.
