Why network your devices?
As the functionality of devices found in substations and industrial facilities grows,
and with the emergence of standards such as IEC 61850, the desire and need to
network your devices with reliable communications grows as well.


                                                      Networking your
                                                      devices will provide:
                                                      • Access to your devices from
                                                       anywhere in within or outside
                                                       your facility
                                                      • The ability for devices to
                                                       communicate directly with each
                                                       other (Peer-to-Peer)
