Westermo to stage remote access seminars across the UK
Westermo Data Communications is running a series of free-of-charge seminars focusing on remote network access and the establishment of Ethernet networks over existing cabling.
The one-day events, which begin on the 14th May in Exeter, will be staged at various venues across the UK and are aimed at OEM's, system integrators and end users of industrial communications.
They will feature a series of technology and application presentations as well as training and hands-on practical demonstrations.
Three presentations will be given by industry experts, addressing the topics of improving business profitability through remote access, implementing remote access in the 21st century, and creating Ethernet networks over existing cabling.
The emphasis will be on the advantages and disadvantages of the different technologies, the introduction of Ethernet line extenders and an end-user experience will demonstrate how the remote access can create cost savings.
To complement the presentations, a training session will help attendees understand the basics of setting up their network to enable remote access. It will provide an understanding of how to select IP addresses, subnet masks and most importantly the gateway address.
Participants will also be given hands-on experience of configuring remote access routers, Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and establishing networks over legacy cables using Ethernet extenders.
In addition to the presentations and training, there will be live working demonstrations of remote PLC communications, redundant-ring Ethernet, radio telemetry and industrial modems.
The venues and dates are as follows:
- 14th May - Exeter, Woodbury Park Hotel
