EtherNet/IP is a communications protocol used in industrial automation applications. EtherNet/IP implements the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) at the session and application layers and uses TCP as a transport protocol for CIP explicit messages and UDP as a transport protocol for CIP implicit messages. CIP explicit messages are typically used to transmit configuration, diagnostic, and event data. CIP implicit messages are used for realtime I/O data transfer.
