As an important data communication product, to ensure the long-term stable and safe operation of the system, the system must be open and compatible with the products of multiple manufacturers. If it only depends on one manufacturer, the risk is great. Therefore, based on the consideration of scalability and compatibility, it is necessary to fully consider the mixed formation of ring network redundancy of industrial switches from different manufacturers, so as to lay a good foundation for future network expansion. So, can industrial switches from different manufacturers form ring network redundancy?
The answer is yes. The industrial switches of different manufacturers can be interconnected through the ring electric port and optical port.
