Switching and Routing in Industrial Networks with RUGGEDCOM (IK-SWIROR)

  • Ethernet has found its way into the industrial and the industry-related environment. A high degree of reliability and throughput rates are demanded from industrial networks. At the same time, a reliable connection of these networks to an existing network infrastructure as well as the seamless integration into a corporate network is highly required. The course includes ample time for practical exercises, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.


  • Switching:-
    • In the Switching part of the course participants will gain the theoretical and practical knowledge required for real world implementation of industrial networks and the methods applied to operate and maintain such networks.
  • Routing:-
    • After completion of this section of the course participants will have theoretical and practical knowledge of what IP communications, routing protocols, redundancy, LAN/WAN concepts that help facilitate communications between multiple network locations.
  • At the end of the course, participants will be 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.
