Industrial Network Architecture
A resilient holistic industrial network architecture across the plant or site is comprised of multiple technologies (logical and physical) deployed at different levels within the plant.
When selecting a resiliency technology, several plant application factors must be evaluated, including physical design of control devices, recovery time performance, type of uplink medium, tolerance for latency and data fluctuation, and other requirements that must be taken into account for an industrial network architecture
- Robust infrastructure
- Topologies and protocols
- Swiching and Routing
- Wireless LAN Drivers (WLC)
- Network and device management
Business practices, corporate standards, policies, industry standards, and risk tolerance are key factors in determining the degree of resilience and application availability required within a plant-wide IACS plant or architecture across the entire plant. site, such as non-resilient LAN, resilient LAN, or redundant LAN.
