The Hirschmann RSP, RSPE, RSPS, RSPL, MSP, OCTOPUS, RED, EES, EESX and GREYHOUND products will benefit from the many new features of the HiOS 5.0 software. These include state-of-the-art security enhancements to devices running the software, such as LDAP authentication for single sign-on across your organization. Customized user roles are also now available, which simplifies regulatory compliance.
Device Level Ring (DLR) is a Layer 2 redundancy protocol specified by the ODVA. It is used widely in Rockwell Automation / Allen Bradley installations. Hirschmann now offers DLR in the RSP (multiple port DIN Rail), the RED25 (four port redundant box) and the OCTOPUS II (IP67 wall mount) switches. No other switch manufacturer can offer this many device variants. With Hirschmann, you always have a switch with the right physical characteristics to match your customers’ requirements.
Rapid fault finding is essential for any mission-critical network, and mirroring data traffic to a network analyser is an essential tool. HiOS not only offers multiple ports to single port mirroring (N:1) but also VLAN mirroring and even RSPAN to mirror data to a remote switch port.
