Industrial Ethernet Introduction Course


The Industrial Ethernet Introduction course is essential for anyone starting to work with standard or Industrial Ethernet, as Ethernet installations are not simply connecting Ethernet cables.

Terminology and best practices are important to know when working with Ethernet installations. This training course provides the required basics for technicians to properly install, maintain or troubleshoot an Ethernet installation. The Industrial Ethernet Introduction Course will provide a basic understanding of the differences between Ethernet based bus systems and the pros and cons between protocols and technologies. 


Why should you choose this training course?

Do you really know what Ethernet is?

Ethernet is the fastest growing technology in the world of industrial automation. Lots of terms and abbreviations are used in the Ethernet world. We have all heard about TCP/IP, managed switches or MAC but what do they actually mean?
