Event description
The ISA Calgary Section invites you to our February Technical Presentation; Advanced Physical Layer - An ISA YYC Perspective.

About this event

Our very own ISA Calgary Section Member, Ian Verhappen, who recently received ISA HQ's Excellence In Enduring Service Award (read full story) will be presenting... coincidently he's also the Chairman of SC65C Industrial Networks where this and other networking standards are developed for the process automation industry. 

Presentation Overview

This complimentary webinar will focus on the recently published standard, IEEE 802.3cg, more commonly known as Advanced Physical Layer. It will have a significant impact on how and where Ethernet networks will be used. 

Ian's talk will first explain the new two-wire powered Ethernet technology. He will then tell us how it can be used in a wide range of industries: from hydrocarbons to food, automative and beyond!

“It’s faster, lighter and a far easier to interface. I'm really looking forward to hearing Ian's thoughts.” – Jeff Brown, ISA Calgary Section Cybersecurity Lead
