Belden To Host 2013 Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure Design Seminar

Stocks in this article: BDC

Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has opened registration for its 2013 Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure (IEI) Design Seminar. The seminar takes place Oct. 6-9, 2013, in Philadelphia and is intended for anyone who designs or maintains mission-critical industrial Ethernet networks. Professionals such as network design engineers, controls engineers, machine builders, plant engineers and IT specialists will benefit from learning how to reduce costs and installation time, while implementing highly reliable and resilient networks.

“The adoption of industrial Ethernet technology has been among the most transformative of all trends in industry. The challenge for industrial professionals is to avoid being overwhelmed by the complexity of features and functions used in enterprise Ethernet implementations,” said Mike Miclot, vice president of marketing, Industrial Solutions, Belden. “Our IEI Design Seminar breaks down the design process to simple, practical and proven steps for building an Ethernet infrastructure that is very dependable, supportable and expandable for the future.”

As industrial Ethernet invades every corner of industry, companies need to organize ad-hoc networks into a maintainable and reliable infrastructure that can continue to grow to meet their future needs. The 20 presentations and nine hands-on labs in the Design Seminar provide essential and practical advice to guide attendees in how to do that.

Suitable for both beginners and advanced participants, the Design Seminar features seven topic areas, or “tracks.” The tracks include: Basic Ethernet Networking, Control Systems and Industrial Ethernet Networks, Network Redundancy, Ethernet Concepts and Network Management, Network Security, Industrial Wireless and Industrial Ethernet for Power Transmission and Distribution/Electric Utilities.

The sessions are 100 percent industrial-focused and take into account the unique requirements of manufacturing networks used for control, safety, security and data acquisition. Capabilities such as very high availability, rapid recoverability and the ability to operate in harsh environments are essential for industrial networks. They also need to be expandable and future-proof because the lifespan of industrial equipment is 15-20 years or longer. Finally, networks need to be simple to implement and easy to maintain by engineering, operations and maintenance staffs who have a different skill set than IT networking professionals.
