The 2013 Belden Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure Design Seminar, which takes place October 6-9th in Philadelphia, Pa., will provide you with the information and skills needed to design, implement, and maintain an industrial Ethernet network. Whether you design industrial Ethernet networks yourself or work with others who do, this seminar will teach you how to:
- Effectively implement highly resilient and reliable networks, and
- Reduce Ethernet network costs and installation time.
If you’re not sure this conference is right for you, or you simply need some help in justifying your attendance, following are 5 solid reasons to attend the event:
Industrial Ethernet: It’s More than a Trend
In the last decade, the adoption of industrial Ethernet technology has been among the most transformative of all industry trends. Even by the most conservative estimates, industrial Ethernet has grown 30 percent since 2000, replacing traditional fieldbus protocols in mission critical applications within the process and discrete manufacturing sectors. Given this trend data, you’ve more than likely been involved in planning a new industrial Ethernet network at your facility or updating segments of your manufacturing process to Ethernet-enabled components. If you have been anything less-than-comfortable with this upgrading process, then this conference is your opportunity to update and improve your skills in an area that will continue to impact your workplace in the near- and long-term.
It’s 100% Industrial
There are significant application differences between industrial Ethernet networks and enterprise Ethernet networks. Rest assured that this seminar is 100% focused on Ethernet networking for the industrial environment.
High-Quality Presentations and Hands-on Labs
All of the lectures and hands-on labs are given by Belden experts who have many years of experience working with industrial facilities around the world. They will share current technology trends, best practices and practical field knowledge. The tips and tricks you learn at the conference will enable you to return to your job better equipped to design, implement, maintain, and manage industrial networks. In fact, several tracks at the conference are designed to deliver rapid skill development in areas such as:
- Basic Ethernet
- Ethernet Concepts
- Control Systems
Innovative Industrial Ethernet Equipment
While the purpose of this seminar is to teach you about industrial Ethernet networking and the content is vetted to ensure that it is educational, you will also benefit by learning about the equipment that helps make networks reliable and resilient. Belden has the broadest portfolio of industrially hardened equipment and media of any vendor. Our products will be showcased in the lectures, hands-on labs and in Technology Showcases featured during social gatherings. The products on display will include Hirschmann and GarrettCom industrial switches, routers and wireless, Tofino industrial security products, Lumberg industrial enclosure-less I/O and connectivity products, as well as Belden industrial cables.
The Event is Small, Friendly and Practical
This event is big enough for you to meet someone else with similar networking challenges, yet small enough to talk one-on-one with the presenters. The atmosphere is informal and friendly, and geared towards providing you with practical help and information.
And if you register by Sept 18th you will be entered into a drawing to win an iPad. So don’t miss this opportunity to master industrial Ethernet and register today!
