Reliable Networking 
​Reliable networking is the concept of making the availability of networks meet or exceed the requirements of the application. For example, office networks, discrete industrial processes, and continuous industrial processes are real-world applications that all have different levels of required network availability. This 4-5 hour workshop based around the SCALANCE XC switch family explores the variability and criteria in different network application requirements, the strategies available to increase a networks reliability, best practices to mitigate network downtime, and troubleshooting techniques to quickly diagnose a network when a problem does occur. ​
