Industrial Ethernet has now been in the market for nearly 20 years and is the preferred communication technology in industrial automation. However, with the standardization of Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and the drive towards the convergence of IT and OT networks by industry 4.0, we are at the crossroads on how Industrial Ethernet protocols will adapt to these new technologies driving change. In this webcast we will look at the major industrial Ethernet protocols like PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT as well as the new features of TSN and discuss how the future might unfold as more and more systems move towards Industry 4.0.

Attendees will learn:

  • Review the underlying features of the major Industrial Ethernet protocols
  • Describe the features of Time Sensitive Networking and there application to the Industrial market segment
  • Discuss how protocols may adopt to the new TSN feature set
