Features of IEC 61850 Improve the Performance, Diagnosis, and Troubleshooting of Ethernet Networks

Ethernet usage has changed data flow dramatically. Using serial pointto- point connections, physical and logical data paths were identical, flowing from the device attached to one end of the system to the device attached at the other end.
