The article is a thinly veiled advertisement. It appears to run through the marketing bullets points for a Rockwell "Compact Drive" product.  For example the "Flexible Communications" section has a great first sentence but the remainder of the content focuses specifically on Ethernet/IP to the exclusion of all the other bus communication networks.  To provide real value the author should have stayed above the protocol and explained why the reader should care about "Flexible Communications" and what they should look for in a communication network.   The "Enhanced Safety" topic is the only part of the article that rises above the marketing bullet point noise.
