Factory communications as a subject and a technology depend on area networks, whether local (LAN) or wide (WAN). Therefore, a large portion of this report covers such networking. In addition, Factory Communications covers the range of factory automation devices, including PCs, PLCs, I/O devices, and software. Data exchange and cabling are other aspects of factory communications that are covered in this report.
