Rockwell Automation has added five new white papers to its resource library on managing real-time control and information flow throughout the manufacturing and IT enterprise. The white papers share guidelines, recommendations and best practices for topics important to network infrastructures, such as improving network resiliency with device-level ring topologies, protecting network infrastructures to comply with emerging standards, implementing a converged ethernet infrastructure, and installing security patches to protect industrial computers.
“Forward-thinking manufacturers know that a unified, secure network infrastructure is key to plant-wide optimization,” said Brian Oulton, networks business manager, Rockwell Automation. “These industrial networking resources arm manufacturers with the guidance needed to enhance their plant-wide network infrastructure.”
The new white papers include:
• Protecting Critical Infrastructure and Cyber Assets in Power Generation and Distribution
• Guidelines for Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure Implementation
• Computer System Security Updates
• Stratix Switches Within Integrated Architecture
