Belden Inc has introduced an EMEA-wide certification programme to help ensure that customers’ industrial networks are reliable, adaptable and able to support growing control and information needs.
“We are here to help customers get their network infrastructure right the first time, with room to grow and a full support system behind them,” says Carlos Prada, director Competence Centre EMEA at Belden. “Only networks that meet our strict design standards, with positive test results, are certified.
“Certifying entire industrial networks is new to the market and Belden, with its deep manufacturing expertise and breadth of product offerings, is well positioned to deliver this service. What stands out with the programme is the flexibility to allow customers to change and evolve their networks over time.”
The programme provides several key benefits:
* Dual expertise and counsel: Belden partners with top system integrators in the industry training them on best practices in network design, installation and testing. At each step of the certification process, two sets of experts – Belden and an authorised provider – work to meet operational requirements and minimise areas of risk.
* Flexibility for the future: Knowing that networks need to continue evolving to meet changing needs, Belden designs with room for growth in mind. This includes expansion guidelines for customers to make changes on their own, while retaining Belden Certified status.
* Products that work: As a provider of cable, connectivity, networking and security products, from Hirschmann, GarrettCom, Lumberg and Tofino Security, Belden can certify and guarantee an entire network of products for decades to come.
* Personalised customer service: For those with Belden Certified networks, a dedicated team is on call to offer advice and assistance. Belden can isolate problems and get networks back up and running quickly.
Belden has trained and qualified its first group of industrial network solution providers to design, install, configure and test companies’ new or expanded industrial Ethernet infrastructures. These accredited companies can now offer Belden Certified industrial networks to manufacturers and process control operators, ensuring network infrastructures that are built to the highest standards and backed by Belden’s expertise and warranties.
“Using one of our trained industrial providers to design and implement a Belden Certified network is a way for companies to ensure that their control and information networks are reliable, adaptable, secure and invisible,” explains Prada. “The feedback we’ve received from our trained industrial network providers has been outstanding. We look forward to working with them and our customers to offer Belden Certified networks – today, and 25 years from now.”
