November Section Meeting
Topic: The Connected Enterprise:
Design and Implementation

Ethernet on the plant floor has been around for a number of years, but in what manner has it been implemented as you see it? Is your plant and corporate network converged – and if so, is it being done so in an appropriate manner?

We will examine the reasoning behind why any manufacturing or process organization might be interested in network convergence and what benefits it will bring to all levels from plant floor to top level management.

Finally, we will take a bird’s eye view of the CPwE – Converged Plantwide Ethernet Design and Implementation Guide and how concepts of connecting the enterprise and the plant floor may prove to not only be beneficial but more and more of a requirement with the exponential growth of Ethernet and the IIoT.
