  The High Intensity Proton Accelerator (HIPA) control system network is spread through about six buildings and has grown historically in an unorganized way. It consisted of about 25 network switches, 150 nodes and 20 operator consoles. The miscellaneous hardware infrastructure and the lack of the documentation and components overview could not guarantee anymore the reliability of the control system and facility operation. Therefore, a new network, based on modern network topology, PSI standard hardware with monitoring and detailed documentation and overview was needed. We would like to present the process how we successfully achieved this goal and the advantages of the clean and well documented network infrastructure.
