By eeNews Europe

The unit has been built to easily adapt through its field-exchangeable ports, whether the customer needs copper, fiber or Gigabit port options.

It comes in two basic versions, with configurable options: 16 Fast Ethernet TX ports, eight fast Ethernet TX ports, plus eight fast Ethernet small form-factor pluggable ports, and four optional Gigabit Ethernet combination ports in either configuration.

The ruggedized switches have been specially designed to handle demanding electrical power generation and distribution applications, including new installations and retrofits of existing substations. The device also performs well in transportation and industrial automation applications, such as railroad optical networks and traffic surveillance on highways.

For enhanced network protection and uptime, Greyhound also offers advanced features through Hirschmann’s operating system, HiOS. The software feature range includes network management, diagnostics and filter functions, as well as comprehensive security mechanisms.
