New, Technically Advanced Architecture Delivers Superior Bandwidth and Network Performance
Belden, Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has released a new version of its Hirschmann brand Layer 3 backbone switches – the DRAGON MACH4000 Series. These next generation devices allow engineers to transfer larger quantities of data faster without compromising network availability or performance.
Variants with four ports that can be set up for 2.5 or 10 Gigabit speeds, redundant power supplies and various new, advanced interfaces, the DRAGON MACH4000 switches help engineers in data-rich industrial environments accomplish the following:
- Connect OT and IT networks and progressively transition to 10 Gigabit speeds
- Maximize availability with redundant backbone infrastructures
- Transition from 1 Gigabit networks to 2.5 and then to 10 Gigabit as the network bandwidth requirements increase
DRAGON MACH4000 series products are best suited for applications that require high bandwidths and reliable data transfer, especially in transportation scenarios, including mass transit systems such as: railway and train stations, airports and rail-rolling stock. Manufacturing, oil and gas and power transmission and distribution applications also benefit the superior performance, availability and ease of use delivered through this entirely new product family.
As an early innovator in industrial Ethernet, Belden knows industrial IT and delivers the next generation of industrial networking solutions, including wired, wireless and embedded products. With its global brands – Hirschmann, GarrettCom and Tofino Security – Belden helps companies minimize downtime and take advantage of the real-time data access and control made possible by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Through a seamless, secure and scalable industrial Ethernet infrastructure, companies are equipped to revolutionize their operations and achieve improved efficiency, productivity and agility.
