Start your journey to a fully unified network fabric by taking the below survey to see where your network is on the maturity model.
1. How many of your manufacturing machines, equipment, or process are islands of automation or connected with proprietary non-Ethernet network?
2. Do you make extensive use of industrial Ethernet and select hardened components to address environmental risks to the infrastructure that can cause downtime?
3. Is your Ethernet network using managed switches and designed based on a reference architecture like CPwE or Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs)?
