Industrial Topology Options and PROFINET

design webinar

Network topology is a term that describes network connections in homes, cities, offices, factories, etc. Fieldbuses and Industrial Ethernet protocols, such as PROFIBUS and PROFINET, offer a wide variety of topology options. This White Paper describes the different network topologies available for industrial environments. Then, it summarizes potential benefits and challenges for each topology in a PROFINET network.
