This webcast offers the viewers the information regarding Fundamentals of Secure Remote Access for Plant Floor Applications. Industry adoption of Ethernet/IP for control and information has driven the wide deployment of standard Ethernet for manufacturing networks. Among the key benefits of this deployment is the ability to remotely access manufacturing assets for the purpose of monitoring, management and configuration. By gaining timely access to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), at the right levels by business and operation decision makers, manufacturers make business decisions from real time information. Information convergence between manufacturing and business systems within the enterprise allows greater business agility and opportunities for innovation. Learn the fundamentals and best practices to balance the remote access needs of manufacturing, such as engineers and equipment vendors, with the secure access requirements of IT. To support and accelerate this network convergence, Rockwell Automation and Cisco Systems collaborated to develop Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) Architectures, to provide education, design guidance, recommendations and best practices.
