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.

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.

If you follow new trends and technologies in automation and communication, you’ve likely been hearing a lot about time sensitive networking (TSN). But, since it’s a relatively new technology, have you been wondering, “what is TSN?” and “why does it matter to my company?”

As you may have read in this previous post about TSN, this new technology transforms standard Ethernet from an “I’ll get it there as soon as I can” communications technology to one that provides timing guarantees for mission-critical applications.

Now, you can achieve an entirely new level of determinism in IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks. Click “read more” below to find out what TSN means for the future of Ethernet Networks and how it actually works.

This year was important in many ways. It was the year that saw BREXIT upend the EU, a historic presidential election, a major DoS on the global internet and many technological advances in the industrial space. While time will tell how the industrial market responds in 2017, now is the perfect opportunity to take a look back on the biggest trends, topics and products that were important to you in 2016.

If you didn’t get a chance to read our blog each week, it’s not too late. We’ve compiled a list of the posts our readers found most helpful in the past year. From IIoT and smart factories to cable testing and selection, check out what our experts had to share.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is disrupting the manufacturing industry by eliminating the rigid structure of production facilities and replacing it with flexible, networked production facilities.

What does this mean for machine builders?

Find out in this blog post, where I share my answers to a few questions about how Belden helped German-based machine builder Erhard + Abt create an intelligent robot system.

As you watch a Formula 1 car race around a track at speeds of more than 200 mph, have you ever considered who actually makes decisions about things like when to change a tire or pass another car?

You might assume this falls on the driver, but what you might not realize is that the driver’s pit crew—and a team of engineers located hundreds of miles away—are monitoring the car’s every move by analyzing data from dozens of sensors.

An industrial facility is like a race car in that hundreds of sensors are generating massive amounts of data. Are you using your data as effectively as a Formula 1 team? What lessons can be learned from Formula 1 that you can apply to network infrastructure for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)?
