With the classic available network tools like TIA-Portal, E-Plan or MS-VISIO, it is no longer possible to design networks in which more as one homogeneous controller, or additional applications for visualization, cameras applications, printer or data server works.
Like in the IT-world, a separate network planning tool is necessary which can plan and draws across all controllers and applications in the network.
Network parameters to be planned:
Infrastructure-device parameters to be planned:
network drawings and accessories:
In this lecture we show with a real-live application, how fast four actually homogeneous designed networks turn into a heterogeneous one due to the need of a remote access possibility. This meant for the PLC commissioning guys, now there was a VLAN separation of the four networks, a VLAN router and the VLAN adjustment in the switches necessary. A good and real network planning tool supports you.
