Belden Launches Family of Entry-Level Fast Ethernet Industrial Switches

7/20/2015

New Hirschmann RED25 Switches Provide Cost-Effective and Customizable Networking Solutions for Industries in Need of Redundancy and Security

St. Louis, Missouri - July 13, 2015 - Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, is debuting RED25. This new family of entry-level, Fast Ethernet redundancy switches is designed for industrial automation applications in need of cost-effective and high-end redundant network solutions.

RED25's focus on redundancy makes these switches a solid fit for the automotive, manufacturing and machine building industries. These industries tend to have automation systems that are part of the network infrastructure. When a system failure occurs, it happens most often within the network and causes service interruptions. RED25's redundancy technology can reduce the effects of these failures, minimizing the risk of outages while maximizing productivity, ensuring consistent communication and keeping plants operating.

In addition to supporting various redundancy technologies, the RED25 switches have comprehensive built-in security features to provide reliable protection against network attacks or operating errors. They are also customizable based on specific port needs or environmental factors, such as temperature range.

"The RED25 family of switches offers flexibility and a future-proof network design. The intent is to provide industrial network engineers, system integrators and machine builders with an entry-level device at an affordable price," said Juergen Schmid, senior product manager. "This makes RED25 an ideal choice for applications that need an entry-level redundancy switch designed specifically for operation in extreme environmental conditions."

RED25 provides maximum productivity and network uptime, thanks to interruption-free data communications based on parallel redundancy protocol (PRP) and high availability seamless redundancy (HSR). Other redundancy technologies, like rapid spanning tree protocol (RSTP), device level ring (DLR) and media redundancy protocol (MRP), allow the switches to connect to existing networks. The switches have also been designed to handle high ambient temperatures and meet precise time synchronization requirements.

Based on the Hirschmann Operating System (HiOS) software, RED25 supports several redundancy technologies, while offering a comprehensive range of security features. The RED25 switch is offered in two, four-port versions:

Four fast Ethernet (FE) TX ports
Two FE TX ports, plus two FE small form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports.
