Belden Releases GarrettCom Router for Hardened, Secure Substation Networking
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission
solutions for mission critical applications, introduces the GarrettCom (News - Alert)
Magnum 10RX Configurable Router and Security Appliance, which offers
advanced layer 3 networking protocols, firewall and secure virtual
private networking for heavy duty industrial applications where high
performance and security are required. The product is being displayed at
the DistribuTECH Convention and Exhibition at the San Diego Convention
Center on January 29-31 in Belden's booth #3427. The 10RX is designed
for mission-critical applications such as power utility substations,
smart grid deployments and other industrial networks with multi-protocol
requirements, tight security directives and quality of service demands.
It supports mixed TCP/IP and legacy protocols, a requirement of many
The 10RX, like all of the GarrettCom and Hirschmann brand products from
Belden, offers flexible configurations and the high degree of
reliability required for interworking between substations or other
mission critical network elements.
Flexible WAN Connectivity and High Performance
A configurable WAN router with up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 16 T1/E1
ports or 32 serial connections, the 10RX also provides protocol support
for legacy as well as MPLS interoperability. The 10RX, a member of the
Magnum 10-series next generation line of substation connectivity
products, incorporates a new hardware and software architecture designed
for maximum speed and flexibility. Its advanced Industrial Network
Operating System (INOS) supports a wide range of routing protocols
including RIP, OSPF, BGP and others, and it is compatible with Magnum
MNS-DX management software.
Cyber security capabilities include both electronic perimeter protection
for remote sites and management security for the 10RX. Advanced
statistics and event recording are available with downloadable local
logs, SNMP MIBs and traps and syslog remote logging.
Te integrated firewall ensures maximum perimeter protection with
features such as address/port inspection and filtering, and secures VPN
connections with strong 3DES and AES encryption. The 10RX also has
integrated hardware assist for encryption to maximize the number of
secure VPN channels available to network designers.
The 10RX provides advanced thermal management and dual hot-swappable
power supplies for maximum uptime and reliability. The 10RX appliances
are available in both fan-cooled and fan-less models and are built using
thermal design techniques that result in cooler operation of internal
electronic components, leading to longer lifetime and increased
availability. The software monitors each power supply and signals when a
power supply fault is detected. Power supplies can be readily swapped
without interruption to the system.
The 10RX comes with a hardened metal case and auto-ranging power
supplies for operation with standard AC power (worldwide) or internal DC
power supply choices. Case options are available for either regular or
reverse rack-mounting; conformal coating is optional to provide
protection from moisture or corrosion.
The 10RX conforms to significant industry standards including: UL/cUL
60950, EN55022 FCC Part 15 CE, EMC (News - Alert) & ENV, IEC61850-3 EMC and
Environmental Operating Conditions Class C for Power Substations, IEEE
1613 Class 2 Environmental Standard for Electric Power Substations, NEMA
TS-2 Traffic Control and EN50155 Railways.
