In recent years, redundant Ethernet technology has been rapidly and popularly adopted in the industrial automation field due to its enhanced reliability. However as a redundant network becomes more heavily utilized, its networking requirements consequently grow more demanding, making some of the redundant technologies (such as simple ring topology) inefficient in certain situations. This problem has presented redundant technology with a functional challenge because an ideal redundant Ethernet solution should be capable of supporting multiple redundant connections. In this white paper, we’ll first introduce the standard redundant technologies. Next, we’ll unveil a new breakthrough redundant technology that can be applied to increase the efficiency and availability of multiple redundant connections in industrial applications, followed by some scenarios to describe the benefits of adopting new redundant solutions.
