Data routing using Layer-3 switch for 800xA verison 6.x
We are engineering a new project with 800xA version 6.0-3. In this project there are two platform. Platform NFA is existing platform running 800xA 5.1 with Infi-90 DCS. Platform WHP#3 is new greenfield platform to be engineered in 800xA 6.0-3-1 with AC800M and AC800M HI.
The final project scope is to operate the new platform completely (as the new platform will be unmanned) from existing platform using PLC connect.
Attached is the proposed network configuration. The communication between NFA and WHP#3 platform involves 4 levels of redundancy. Switch A (Fiber Optic and Wireless) and Switch B (Fiber Optic and Wireless). In this configuration the Wireless is using Layer-3 protocol via firewall for communication. Thus we are bound to use Layer-3 switch and have separate networks in WHP#3 and NFA platforms.
In this configuration I would like your advice about the overall system performance of 800xA considering the new platform will be completely operated from existing platform via PLC connect.
Request any kind of support or wayforward in this regards.
