About the Design Seminar

This event brings together people involved with designing and maintaining industrial Ethernet networks with Belden experts from around the
world. Through a combination of lecture topics and hands-on labs you will learn the information and skills you need to excel with mission
critical networks. Sessions cover both introductory and advanced topics related to key areas of network design, isolation, redundancy, security
and more.

No matter your level of technical knowledge you will benefit from both the presentations and the “learning by doing” labs. Special tracks are
available for Ethernet Networking, Cyber Security, Wireless and PT&D (substation) Communications. Some of the industries addressed in the
sessions include automotive, petrochemical plants, power generation and substation facilities, wind farms and transportation. In addition
valuable information will also be provided by recognized industry experts who will speak during the lunch break each day.
