IEEE Tech Talk: Single Pair Ethernet

New IEEE 802.3 standards and technologies deliver power and data over a single pair of wires to address the challenges of ‘operational technology” (OT) automation applications and simplify OT networks. This talk will explore some of the unique features and reasons for Single Pair Ethernet’s growing adoption in the OT space leveraging modern technology to revisit core Ethernet features and speeds suitable for automation and control applications.

White Paper: Single Pair Ethernet – The network infrastructure for Industry 4.0

Experts consider Single Pair Ethernet to be the next generation of communication architecture in automation. The concept behind it is essentially an extension of the Ethernet to the sensor, that is wherever “tracks” (in the literal sense) rather than data highways are needed in every inch of space within the plant – it is compact, flexible and offers extensive reach.

3 Top Myths About Smart Buildings Debunked

Learn about the most common misconceptions about building automation solutions and why these myths are preventing optimization. The 3 top myths include: building automation solutions only reduce energy costs, Smart Buildings only benefit owners and employees, and building automation systems leave buildings vulnerable to hackers.

IT/OT integration: What is good for manufacturing is good, and challenging, for smart buildings

With the shift to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Ethernet-based protocols enabling the collection of more data than ever from traditional OT-based devices and machinery, businesses are rapidly realizing the value of leveraging OT information to make informed business decisions. OT in turn can leverage IT data and analytics to improve productivity and efficiency, and reduce downtime and maintenance.
