IXP42X Product Line: Application BriefThe networked factory floor enables the adoption of systems for remote monitoring, long-distance support, diagnostic services, and the integration of in-plant systems with the enterprise. The need for flexible connectivity solutions and high network bandwidth is driving a fundamental shift away from legacy industrial bus architectures and communications protocols to industry standards and commercial off-the shelf solutions. Standards-based interconnect technologies and communications protocols, especially Ethernet, enable simpler and more cost-effective integration of network elements and applications, from the enterprise to the factory floor.The IXP42X product line of network processors with Ethernet POWERLINK* software helps manufacturers of industrial control and automation devices bridge between real-time Ethernet on the factory floor and standard Ethernet IT networks in the connected enterprise.Read the full IXP42X Product Line Application Brief.
