New switches from Cisco offer full Gigabit Ethernet speed, modular design and high-level security features.
Cisco Catalyst IE3x00 Rugged Series switches deliver full Gigabit speed Industrial Ethernet switching and a modular form-factor optimized for size, power and performance.
The switches provide security with software-based segmentation and real-time flow visibility for threat-detection and isolation. Select models support Cisco Cyber Vision sensor for deep visibility across a wide range of industrial networks, and advanced threat detection.
Scalability with intent-based networking and centralized policy-based automation offers the visibility and control needed to manage all network devices, allowing shorter deployment cycles and greater agility as the network grows. High-speed connectivity are provided by up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks (expand to up to 26 ports of Gigabit Ethernet or up to 24 ports of Gigabit Ethernet and 2 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet). 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet downlink with expansion module.
A high-density Power over Ethernet (PoE) solution supports up to 24 PoE/PoE+ ports or 8 “802.3bt type 3” ports or 4 “802.3bt type 4” ports with the 10G, PoE enabled system offering a system power budget of up to 480W.
The switches’ compact form factor and fanless design is hardened to withstand extreme temperatures, shock and vibration. Some models are IP67 rated providing dust and water protection, and compliance with multi-industry specifications for automation, ITS, and substation environments.
Edge computing can be implemented via Cisco IOx, which can host and execute services to reduce costs and improve efficiency by enabling data analysis and applications at the edge.
