    - Now we've talked about a few generalized network technologies, let's talk about a few specialized network technologies. The specialized network technologies I want to look at, right now, are SCADA/ICS and Medianet technologies. SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. ICS stands for Industrial Control System. Both of these technologies refer to networks and technologies, that are used to control industrial applications, to some degree, and to some scale. In the case of SCADA, which is a subset of the larger ICS technologies, when we use the term SCADA, we're describing systems that span large geographical areas. Some examples of SCADA systems, that span large geographical areas, are pipelines, power distribution, water management, sewage management, and even things as common as street lights. ICS, while is the more generic term, when people use the term ICS, generally what they have in mind is smaller-scale systems. The smaller-scale systems they have in mind, when…
