Time-sensitive networking (TSN) is a highly anticipated and widely discussed set of IEEE Ethernet standards for the industrial world. However, end users oftentimes express a certain wariness due to the perceived configuration complexity of TSN.

Although not considered a plug-and-play technology, several standardization groups are taking steps to simplify the TSN configuration and integration process. Key aspects of these important activities for end users are finding the right level of abstraction for human operators and automating the low-level configuration details underneath. These steps ultimately enable a user-friendly experience when applying TSN technology to industrial networks.

Read on to learn more about these ongoing TSN activities and best advice when thinking about TSN configuration in the future.

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems have long been used in industrial automation applications to control and monitor data from automated processes. But, what most teams think of as SCADA today is considered outdated.

As big data, IIoT, analytics and the cloud become even more pervasive in industrial settings, SCADA systems are becoming smarter. Now engineers have a visual interface into their control networks, leading to more confident decision making because of the feedback offered through being able to see the big picture of the network.

Industries like oil and gas, transportation, water-wastewater, manufacturing and energy are all benefiting from SCADA, as it allows teams to see everything live, including where failure occurs, and puts control back in the hands of the users.

Read on to learn more about how SCADA is being used in substation automation and the benefits teams can receive through these systems.

Are you ready to embrace the benefits of an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-based system? One key component that will impact your ultimate success is security. Proper security measures and protocols play a critical role in not only protecting sensitive data, but preventing damage to your systems, facilities, employees, the environment – and even your company’s reputation.

To learn more about the importance of security in the deployment of an IIoT system, read more from guest blogger Fabrice Jadot. Fabrice is chief technology officer at Schneider Electric, a Belden partner. He’s also a board member of ODVA, an international association comprised of members from the world’s leading automation companies. Here, he shares his perspective on how security challenges affect the different aspects of an IIoT deployment.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is revolutionizing manufacturing and demanding greater productivity. As companies compete to get their products to market faster and cheaper, they need simple solutions to enable near-immediate implementation. Yet there’s no time or budget for special tools or expensive, highly-trained engineers and electricians.

Universal input/output (I/O) modules are essential to building networks that operate in the new world of “plug-and-produce,” where simple plug-and-play products are applied to industrial automation to create smart factories. These versatile modules enable machine builders to do more with less.

Click “Read More” to learn about the benefits universal I/O modules are bringing to the machine building industry.

As demand for mass transit increases in densely populated urban areas, so do passenger demands for more entertainment, on-time delivery and safety. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and impending technologies like Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) are making this possible.

TSN is a novel technology, currently in development at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), that offers an entirely new level of determinism in standard IEEE 802.1 and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet networks. Standardizing Ethernet networks with TSN will deliver an important capability: deterministic, time-critical packet delivery.

It represents the next step in the evolution of dependable and standardized automation technology and is certainly the next step in improving railway communication. Click “Read More” below to learn more.
