White Paper: KINGSTAR
Ethernet-based fieldbus standards have changed the game for machine builders. But with so many protocols competing to be most valuable and viable, how should you decide which to use?
In this white paper, “5 Real-Time, Ethernet-Based Fieldbuses Compared,” we examine five different protocols that claim to offer the best price/performance open standard for real-time Ethernet fieldbuses.
Topics covered include:
Understand your options when it comes to real-time, Ethernet-based fieldbuses. Read the white paper to see how the top five standards stack up.

Across the U.S., demand-side management (DSM)4 activities, budgets and programs continue to grow in importance and to increase in overall magnitude in response to state and national policy. The effectiveness of these programs can benefit greatly from better integration and optimization in planning and operations. In the smart grid context, both the optimal integration and the full valuation of DSM cost-effectiveness (CE) have been challenging and difficult to achieve.5 Important interactive effects between measures and full optimization have been difficult to quantify, which in the long run cause poor investment decisions, misalignments, lost opportunities, and stranded benefits. This paper contends that much greater planning and operational efficiency (and resulting benefits) can be captured through robust valuation and optimization of the grid and the full integrated DSM (IDSM) portfolio, which will in turn show greater business case opportunities. Water related benefits, including embedded-energy-in-water, can also be further integrated and optimized. A critical outcome of better integration and optimization is to effectively and systematically optimize consumer engagement, with corresponding cost reductions.
Software has dominated the world of business for many years now. It’s become such an integral part of the business world that 2014 saw a number of high-profile CEOs and notable industry analysts proclaim “every business is in the software business.”
What is IP Networks ?
The method employed to send data from one computer to the other is known as the Internet Protocol (IP). However, an IP network is a communication network that uses Internet Protocol (IP) to send and receive messages between computers. Internet serves to be the largest and the best IP network. An IP network uses the internet protocol to send and receive messages between one or more computers.
What is networking ?
Networking is the process of establishing a connection between the computers on a network. The sole purpose of networking is sharing the information as fast as possible. The first step towards understanding networking is how it operates and how do we use switches, routers and access points to perform functions in a network. TCP/IP or Internet Protocol suite is the foundation of all modern networking, which offers connection-less as well as connection-oriented services
What is Internet Protocol ?
Internet Protocol (IP) is the method or the set of rules governing the transmission of data packets between different devices via the Internet. IP is the layer 3 protocol in the OSI networking model. IP makes it possible for devices, working on different platforms, to communicate through the Internet. A unique IP address is assigned to each device on the network that makes it possible to send and receive data. Each computer system or device such as printer and mobile phone are known as the host
