Industrial Networks – Layer 2 Resilient Protocols
PREMIER System Integrators, Inc.™ recognizes that excellent quality and delivery requires technical excellence of its people and processes. One of the ways that PREMIER develops technical excellence is through knowledge sharing in regular lunch and learn training sessions. The most recent session was delivered by Lance Breedlove from the Decatur, AL office. As a Cisco CCNA Industrial certified engineer, Lance is one of several PREMIER team members focused on providing Cyber Secure & Robust Industrial Network services.
The focus of the lunch and learn session was on Industrial Network design specifically focusing on Layer 2 protocols. This session is one of several focused on Industrial Network architecture and best practices.
What are Layer 2 protocols?
Examples of Cisco proprietary Layer 2 protocols:
Guidelines and topologies for using REP and Flex Link
The training included an interactive lab used to demonstrate the resiliency of Flex Links and REP protocols. This hands on session generated lots of great questions that reinforced the PREMIER team’s understanding of Layer 2 resiliency.
