Preface


The Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) Design and Implementation Guide represents a collaborative development effort from Cisco Systems and Rockwell Automation. It is built on, and adds to, design guidelines from the Cisco Ethernet-to-the-Factory (EttF) solution and the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture™. The CPwE solution is designed for industrial Ethernet applications. Although CPwE is applicable to multiple industries, this Design and Implementation Guide (DIG) focuses on the manufacturing industry.

Document Organization

The CPwE DIG contains the following chapters and appendices:

Chapter or Appendix
Description

Chapter 1 "Converged Plantwide Ethernet Overview"

Provides an overview of the business need, justification, benefits, and features of the Cisco and Rockwell Automation joint CPwE solution.

Chapter 2 "Converged Plantwide Ethernet Solution"

Provides an overview of the Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) solution architecture, which describes the various systems, components, and their relation to each other to provide context to the networking function and technical requirements.

Chapter 3 "CPwE Solution Design—Cell/Area Zone"

Describes the key requirements and technical considerations for the Cell/Area zone and related Industrial Automation and Control System (IACS) applications.

Chapter 4 "CPwE Solution Design—Manufacturing and Demilitarized Zones"

Provides an overview and basic design considerations for the Manufacturing and Demilitarized zones of the CPwE architecture.

Chapter 5 "Implementing and Configuring the Cell/Area Zone"

Describes the configurations and configuration options to implement the recommendations and best practices described in Chapter 3 "CPwE Solution Design—Cell/Area Zone."

Chapter 6, "IACS Network Security and the Demilitarized Zone"
