The adoption of IT / Ethernet packet-based communications in the OT or industrial space continues to accelerate. A wide range of wired and wireless technologies many developed by IEEE (TSN, APL, WiFi6, 6LoPAN, IEEE 802.x), ITU and others are all entering commercialization. These standards, associated protocols, and supporting consortia are working in parallel with the standards developing organizations to manage the delivery and content suitable for the industrial market within the next 2 years. This presentation will summarize the range of new and repurposed standards and how future control networks / control systems are likely to be impacted by these technologies.
