A resilient, holistic network architecture can help create the secure, scalable and robust infrastructure needed to facilitate IT/OT convergence, reduce risks and maximize overall plant uptime. But achieving IT/OT convergence requires an understanding of Layer 2 and 3 network topologies, resiliency protocols, managed and unmanaged switches and numerous other network design considerations.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
- Tested, validated and documented Reference Architectures and why they're important
- Best practices for establishing a resilient and robust network infrastructure to support IT and OT convergence
- Determining the degree of resiliency and application availability required for a robust, plant-wide architecture
