With more security and flexibility, the Hirschmann BOBCAT Switch takes Ethernet to the next level and is equipped to work with the evolving needs of industrial facilities.
Hirschmann DRAGON PTN (Packet Transport Network)
A new MPLS-TP based backbone switch family with best-in-class HiProvision software, to reliably and efficiently transport mission-critical data, guaranteeing bandwidth in wide area networks. DRAGON PTN and HiProvision deliver a fully integrated Ethernet-based backbone transmission system that ensures uninterrupted communication. With a large number of interface modules DRAGON PTN is offered with a variety of port types to ensure flexibility and also interface seamlessly to legacy systems.
Hirschmann DRAGON MACH4500 Layer 3 backbone family
This next generation Layer 3 Ethernet backbone is best suited for applications that require high bandwidths and reliable data transfer. A flexible future-oriented solution, Hirschmann DRAGON MACH4500 supports redundant internal power supplies to increase device availability, and low-cost future expansion is easy. Engineers in data-rich industrial environments can transition from 1Gb networks to 2.5 and then to 10Gb as the network bandwidth requirements increase.
