Emergence o Industry 4.0
For the Industry 4.0 initiative to gainmomentum (see news on developments at theHanover Fair in the show report on page 4),it’s apparent that improving the inrastructureand security o industrial networks will be keycontributing technologies. There is certainlyagreement that uniying the unctions o acompany’s enterprise and machine control networks will produce even larger benefts inthe uture, but the movement toward a FourthIndustrial Revolution will require strength-ening the perormance and resilience o theunderlying networks as well.This issue takes an in-depth look at thesetopics beginning with the impact o InternetProtocol version 6 (IPv6) on the world o industrial automation. One o the biggestissues moving orward is a higher level o network management and the need or ITand automation personnel to work moreeectively together. IPv6 provides a solutionor the underlying problem o not enoughIP addresses in the world, along with othertechnology advances, but it also creates theneed or a seamless transition rom IPv4systems already in service.A second critical issue moving ahead,especially with the continuing shit towarddecentralized systems, is the growth o IP67solutions. Mounting network switches androuters, Ethernet-based controllers and I/Osystems on machines creates a need or ahigher level o protection rom the environ-ment and a question about how to achieve thebest results when designing new machinery.Machine availability is such a critical issue ormanuacturers, that it demands solutions thatdeliver an extremely high level o reliability.And fnally, security is a priority that will require a continuing ocus. At the HanoverFair, we met with numerous networkingcompanies and there is a consensus that enduser education is needed to better commu-nicate both potential threats and availabletechnology solutions to address security.For Industrial Ethernet to achieve itspromise in the uture, all aspects o industrial networking will need to become strongerand more sophisticated. We are hoping tobe part o that process by reporting on newtechnology and applications. We’re hopingthat you also fnd important inormation inthis issue on topics such as Internet Protocol version 6 (page 10), IP20 vs. IP67 solutions(page 14) and advanced security (page 24)that will be both interesting and useul inyour work.
