Switching & routing in Industrial Networks with SCALANCE X products (IK-SWIROS)

  • Utbildningen "Switching & Routing in Industrial Networks with SCALANCE X produkter" består av delarna switching och routing. Under "switching- delen" av utbildningen lär du dig hur man konstruerar kopplade nätverkslösningar och ansluter dem till realtids-kapabla system. "Routing- delen" behandlar de grundläggande principerna för routing kommunikation och deltagarna får praktisk erfarenhet från felsökning till diagnostik. Denna utbildning befäster teoretiska kunskaper med hjälp av praktiska övningar. Den är utformad för alla som har att ta itu med switchade & routade nätverkslösningar i en industriell miljö - från beslutsfattare till administratörer. Den som vill kan som avslutning på utbildningen genomföra en certifiering för att ha möjlighet att bli en "Siemens Certified Engineer for Industrial Networks - Switching & Routing".


  • 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.

  • At the end of the course, you are familiar with the special requirements of industrial network solutions and will have the knowledge to plan, implement, and provide support for plain networks in an industrial or industry-related environment.

  • Knowledge according to course ("Ethernet Fundamentals in Industrial Networks" (IK-ETHBAS):
  • You should have basic knowledge of the topic "Ethernet" and should be familiar with topologies, transfer processes, addressing, data transport, and understand the associated technical vocabulary. It is also helpful if you are familiar with the principles of operation of routers, switches, hubs and the OSI reference model.


  • Certification (Siemens CPIN-LEVEL)
  • This training prepares you for the certification "Siemens Certified Professional for Industrial Networks - Switching & Routing". A voluntary certification examination will take place in the end of the training.
  • As an option, the examination may be taken at a later time.
  • For further information, please read here

  • Please note that before the examination you have to identify yourself by showing a valid photo identification.
