Softing and Industrial Automation Networks partner on installations
January 22, 2013 - Softing and Industrial Automation Networks will partner on installations, where Industrial Automation Networks will assist Softing's customers in deploying products in their plants. ..
Industrial Automation Networks provides field level network services that help global clients to seamlessly connect their field devices and controllers. Industrial Automation Networks technology expertise includes, but is not limited to FOUNDATION Fieldbus, PROFIBUS PA, and PROFIBUS DP.
Fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks are becoming more prevalent in the industrial environment but unfortunately the skills necessary to implement the technology have not kept pace with either its introduction or scale of acceptance.

During this time, we actively shaped open technology standards and established ourselves as the world leader for industrial network solutions,” said Wolfgang Langer, Softing North America’s Director of Marketing. “We are very excited and proud to announce our partnership with Industrial Automation Networks.
