A NEW STANDARD

ETHERNET NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICES

A leading, drinking water treatment plant needed a new, upgraded Ethernet network infrastructure on their plant floor to provide greater access to plant information, maintain production, protect against unplanned interruptions or forced outages, and ensure regulatory compliance.

As a rule, industrial infrastructure requires more thought, identification and planning due to the variation of configured devices. There are critical components that it cannot operate without – programmable logic controllers, HMIs, network, and client and data collection systems.

A NEW STANDARD

TSI Turtle Services (TSI) started the program for the water treatment plant by performing an assessment of the core technology, and then documenting and implementing a plan for improvements.

The assessment focused on point of failures within the core Industrial Ethernet. Our site findings and recommendations included:

  • Opportunities to improve reliability, system availability and security through the implementation of network resiliency or redundancy.
  • Standardizing equipment to manage industrial infrastructure in order to streamline recovery in the event of a failure.
  • Establishing consistent, documented procedures so plant personnel could manage their own infrastructure.

TSI engineers developed a standard for the plant floor through the Converge Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) initiative utilizing Cisco Systems and Rockwell Automation. This vendor partnership resulted in a complete line of industrial Ethernet switches (managed, network core, control panel/field switches), network media converters, redundant network cabling, and enhanced dual network power. TSI eliminated all single points of failure and improved overall system reliability.
