4. Industrial Networks Education - Success through training
Digitalization is the top topic in industry. The merging of the virtual and real worlds promises significant growth. To be able to successfully follow the path to the "future of industry", powerful industrial networks based on proven standards are required  – as well as the know-how to plan and realize these networks and connect them to a corporate network. With Industrial Networks Education, Siemens offers target-oriented training courses on the topic of industrial networks. Based on the three pillars Switching and Routing, Security, and Wireless LAN, participants obtain comprehensive network knowledge, which can be documented with a certificate on request. 

5. Totally Integrated Automation in practice
--> Safe ride on Italy's fastest roller coaster (Video)
The company Inautec develops controllers for roller coasters. Fail-safe controllers and drives from Siemens are used. In an emergency, the cars are safely brought to a halt. Maximum passenger safety is guaranteed.
--> Safety in machine tools (Video)
Weiler Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH relies on system-integrated safety technology from Siemens. In contrast to conventional safety solutions, the response time, wiring costs and the space required in the control cabinet can be reduced.
--> Conveyor technology
Drives technology for conveying applications in automotive boydy construction needs to be robust and reliable.  As well failsafe, communication capable, energy- and cost efficient.  Therefore the automobile manufacturer VW in Emden, Germany  realized the conveyors in the new body construction hall with new distributed inverters and motor starters.

6. Master-Slave Communication via UDP Broadcast
 (12/22/2015) [20983558]

   A master shall be able to send a data record to several slaves
   quickly and simultaneously to initiate a quasi-synchronous
   reaction. This requirement is particular frequent in conveyor and
   transport systems. The number of active slaves shall be flexible,
   and the function of the master be transferrable to other
   stations.
