ORing Launches 10G L3 Industrial Ethernet Switch for Power Substation and Railway Applications
Power substation and railway applications have strict requirements for network equipment. Besides resistance to electrical disturbances and power outages, the network equipment must be robust enough to overcome harsh ambient conditions. In addition, increased adoption of IP surveillance systems in these applications has spurred demand for real-time transmission of huge amount of video data; therefore, faster and higher-performance switches have become a necessity. Now customers’ needs for higher security, management efficiency, and reliability can all be met with ORing’sRGS-PR9000-A industrial Ethernet switch as it features Layer 3 functions, Gigabit speed, optical fiber support, and compliance with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 standards for power substation and railway markets.
Layer 3 plays a key role in achieving higher security and management efficiency as the technology forwards packages and traffic to the destination intelligently based on IP addresses. As ORing’s first switch to support OSPF and PIM routing protocols, RGS-PR9000-A is a perfect fit for complex system architectures consisting of different domains or different VLANs. It will find the best path for packets as they pass through a set of connected networks and to ensure fast delivery of data in the shortest time. In addition, the device can learn of changes in a routing table or detect changes in the network immediately, hence saving a lot of time and effort during scale up. The Layer 3 support endows the switch with hardware-based fast forwarding, hence improving network performance and resiliency while enabling flexible network design and greater control of network traffic.
Considering the need for high bandwidth capacity, the device is equipped with 4 slots which support up to 24 1Gband 810Gb Ethernet ports in copper or fiber interfaces. Users can insert 1G or 10G modules based on their requirements and the working environments to deliver unprecedented bandwidth at an affordable cost. The high port density makes it ideal for large-scale deployments while providing high-performance aggregative connectivity. The versatile copper/fiber combinations guarantee long distance data communications in a cost-effective way between the core layer and the edge layer of your network.
With the highest network availability in mind, the RGS-PR9000-A supports a variety of redundancy technologies to enable fast fault recovery. Besides standard MSTP, STP, and RSTP protocols, the switches also support ORing’s proprietary O-Ring self-healing technology. Furthermore, the wide operating temperature range from -40oC to 85oC (for 10G SFP module, the operating temperature range is -20oC ~ 60oC) to enable the switches to work reliably in substation environments where temperature changes are extreme.
