Ethernet is already an integral component to industrial control and automation. Significantly, Ethernet is now emerging as the replacement for device-layer field bus technologies, enabling the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The ability to remotely identify, monitor and control every individual device on a network offers unparalleled benefits to industry. Management efficiency is drastically improved, reducing operating costs, but more notably risk of machine failure
is significantly reduced or even eliminated.
