Industrial Ethernet for the Industrial Internet of Things
With maturity and wide adoption of technologies like audio video bridging (AVB) and time-sensitive networking (TSN), companies must now move beyond standards and interoperability validation. Today’s industrial Ethernet networks have entered a new phase that requires a new type of testing—one that includes system-level validation that uses realistic application mixes. Whether a traffic mix that includes programmable logic controllers (PLC), robotics components, motors, sensors, and human-machine interface (HMI) —only with real-world test workloads can you verify that your network meets the needs of each application.
This solution brief outlines examples of industrial network workload mix and how IxNetwork can help solve the test challenge. IxNetwork provides comprehensive network performance testing capability for your infrastructure. With IxNetwork, it is easy to create network elements to emulate a real industrial network.
