Abstract

Techniques are provided for using Industrial Ethernet (IE) switches to snoop Process Field Net (PROFINET) protocols (e.g., alarms, Discovery and Configuration Protocol (DCP), etc.) and exchange relevant information with a Fabric Edge Node (FEN) via an out of band mechanism to provide efficient end-to-end service delivery. This may enable populating a mapping server and signaling the loss of a PROFINET device.
