White paper discusses wireless's role in industrial networks

Easy four-page read explains basic wireless technologies, standards used in industrial settings.

When Belden announced it was divesting its Trapeze Wireless business to Juniper Networks, Belden chief executive John Stroup said the deal "enables our organization to remain focused on the long-term growth opportunities for wireless technologies in our core markets, including the nascent industrial networking market."

Belden has a rich history in industrial networking and recently published a white paper explaining the benefits of wireless networking in industrial environments. Entitled "Achieving Next-Generation Connectivity," the paper describes why and how wireless networking enhances operations and business, in this age of uncertain economy, within industrial networks. The paper cites safety, security and costs as reasons industrial-plant managers should implement wireless networks.

"The days of walking around the plant with a clipboard are long gone," the paper says. "All-pervasive Ethernet connectivity and its wireless component have arrived."

The four-page paper explains the basic wireless technologies and standards that can be deployed in industrial environments.
