Advances in networking technologies are continuously changing not only the way we do business, but also the way we setup our instrumentation systems. In this session, we cover fundamentals of networking using Ethernet, available solutions for instrument control systems, and the future of Ethernet as it applies to instrument control. We also discuss how to design your instrumentation network to effectively coexist with general information traffic.
