Belden Presents Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure Design Workshop

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, is launching a series of workshops to help companies design, secure and implement industrial Ethernet infrastructure based on today’s proven results.

The workshops – titled Evolving Your Networks: A Practical Industrial Ethernet Design Workshop – feature customized content delivered by local experts within a brief two-hour session. Belden’s goal is to offer mainstream best practices and simple, common examples, all tied to a step-by-step approach, so attendees leave with a roadmap of exact next steps to take in order to kick-start or improve their network’s infrastructure.

“Industrial Ethernet is arguably the fastest growing technology being installed today, and with the multitude of features and functions it borrows from enterprise and commercial Ethernets, design can be overwhelming,” said Steve Biegacki, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Belden. “Network designers are asking for simple, practical, proven design steps to ensure their infrastructure is reliable, supportable and expandable for the future – and that’s exactly what the workshop offers.”

The workshops kick off with a stop in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Thursday, Aug. 9, where Belden’s team of experts will cover topics from how to design an end-to-end network infrastructure to selecting the components required to put the framework into action, including the cables, connectors, switches and routers needed for a long-lasting and sustainable system.

The presenters are all locally-based professionals representing the market-leading Hirschmann, GarrettCom, Tofino Security and Belden brands, and will also be available after the workshops to answer questions, give advice and help companies customize their approach.

For an initial introduction to the local workshops, Belden has also partnered with Automation World – an online magazine designed for manufacturing leaders – to host a free one-hour webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 15.

The webinar, titled Designing Reliable Industrial Ethernet Infrastructures – Made Easy will be co-presented by Belden’s Vice President of Marketing Mike Miclot and Director of Global Vertical Marketing Brian Oulton. Visit to register for the webinar.

“Many of today’s workshops are time-consuming, highly-technical and based on theory. We want to offer something different, something simple that can be immediately put into action,” said Miclot. “We skip the history lessons, obsolete features and theoretical discussions, and focus on what’s working in today’s industrial settings. We give you the tools you need so you know exactly what steps need to be taken next – all in under two hours.”
