The migration of all industrial applications to Ethernet is unquestioned. But, before network engineers can inch closer toward all-systems-go, they need to overcome several challenges. The most pressing one is to ensure that there is no breakdown in communication between serial devices and SCADA hosts. It is no secret that plenty of solutions are available on the market. The immediate question is which solution fits your network’s requirements the best.
In this white paper, we will look at four challenges that arise when linking up Modbus-supported devices to SCADA systems. We will also provide solutions for different scenarios to address your concerns.
