On line-Training Switching & Routing in Industrial Networks con SCALANCE X (IK-SWIROS)

  • An industrial or industry-related environment without Ethernet is no longer conceivable. A high degree of reliability and sufficient capacities are demanded from hard-wired industrial networks. At the same time, a secure connection of these Ethernet networks to an existing network structure as well as the seamless integration into a corporate network is highly required. In the Switching part of the course you will learn switched network solutions and how they connect to real-time-capable systems in theory and in practice. The Routing section will teach you the fundamentals and knowledge required for planning, configuring, and operating network solutions in industrial environments, which are structured by routing, and their connection to company networks. You will become familiar with the special requirements of routing solutions in industry and the required fundamentals of IP communication, static routing, routing protocols, and redundancy mechanisms. The course includes ample time for practical exercises, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.


  • After attending the course, you can:
    • Identify the differences between Ethernet and Industrial Ethernet topologies
    • Use IPv4 and IPv6 (addressing, data exchange, important protocols)
    • Implement Redundancy Protocols (MRP, HRP, Standby Redundancy Protocol, RSTP, Passive Listening, HSR, and PRP)
    • Create e Network Segmentation with VLANs
    • Configuring static routing outer redundancy (VRRP) and dynamic routing (RIP, OSPF)
    • Diagnostics and troubleshooting typical errors
