Industrial control systems (ICS) are the workhorses of our physical world, and becoming more internet-connected, more virtualized in many cases, and more remotely accessible by the day.

Security experts worry that the growing dependence on internet-connected devices is outpacing our ability to secure them. This is particularly true within industrial and critical infrastructure because cyber threats could result in physical disruption, loss of availability and even risk to public safety.

On the other hand, many ICS professionals don’t believe there is a genuine risk to plant operations. Unfortunately, that’s not what the data shows.

Historically – especially in the telecom world, where the fiber cable deployment is very costly – operators expected active equipment and line card upgrades to allow more data to be transported over the same installed fiber threads. This allowed them to maximize their return on investment by delaying a fiber cable upgrade.

The transportation industry has the unique position of directly engaging with its customers (the passengers) and keeping them happy and safe. Any delays or downtime not only lead to lost revenue, but a trickle-down effect of annoyed travellers.

Do you have nightmares about train delays, safety issues or interrupted passenger services? Whether you oversee the overall operations of a railway or you’re in charge of specifying a new or upgraded vehicle or application – the reliability of the railway communication network rests on your shoulders.

No matter your role in building out a proper Ethernet network, it can be easy to fall into the trap of focusing your attention on the “shiny” or more exciting devices, like switches and routers. But, if the last thing that comes to mind is your cabling – you need to reconsider your priorities. Click the “read more” button below to find out why.

This week, the industry received some big news: The TIA TR-42.7 subcommittee agreed to include modular plug terminated links (also known as “direct connect”) in a TIA-568.2-D normative annex. The annex provides guidance to IT professionals to ensure a proper direct-connect cabling arrangement. Several Belden staff are closely involved with the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), holding many leadership positions within the organization.

Are you feeling the pressure of increasing production demands from your manufacturing facility? You’re definitely not alone.

We hear this as a top concern when we talk to industrial manufacturers worldwide. And since these demands will only continue to increase, industrial automation efforts become even more important for finding new efficiencies while increasing quality.

One way we’re seeing companies address these demands is through driverless transport systems, called automated guided vehicles (AGVs), specifically wireless AGVs.

Read more to find out about wireless AGVs and how they are impacting the future of industrial automation.
