Introduction

Wireless Industrial and Scada Networks Training Course Hands-on

Recent technical developments in the design and application of wireless technology have revolutionized the networks industry, and industrial applications are well suited to exploit these developments. The focus of this short Wireless Industrial and Scada Networks Training course is on the adaptation of these technologies to industrial applications, where the demands for high levels of robustness, security and reliability present unique challenges -- and where the operational advantages are compelling.

Very little was assumed about background, other than the general technical knowledge base that active participants in the industry will have. The objective of the Wireless Industrial and Scada Networks Training course is to position students to appreciate how the TCP/IP Internet infrastructure is accessed and supported via emergent wireless data access networks.
