Wireless Design Considerations for Industrial Applications Application Manual

As part of the regular communications I receive from Rockwell Automation, I got a note about their recent RSTechED 2014 Event which when I followed the links led to a “Good Wireless Design” article by Putman’s Jim Montague one of the on-site reporters that finally led to the joint Cisco/Rockwell application manual “Wireless Design Considerations for Industrial Applications.” The application manual starts with a review of wireless technology, then discusses protocols with detail on wireless and Ethernet/IP (the ODVA family of industrial communications ‘languages’) and then pulls all this theory together with a look at WLAN design practices.
