An increasing number of manufacturers are looking at industrial networking itself as a discipline. Many of these companies are bringing together both traditional automation engineering with corporate IT to gain a cross functional view of how industrial network performance can be improved. Leading organizations have adopted the latest networking technology to connect plant assets, manufacturing systems, and business systems to integrate manufacturing data from the plant floor to the front office. However, the challenge comes in developing a company-wide architecture that encompasses the need of both engineering and IT.
