Real-Time Communication and Advanced Industrial Security

Today’s robust and high-performance operations benefit from the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) by connecting their devices through a centralized, local cloud. The Hirschmann BOBCAT Switch is the first of its kind to enable real-time communication using TSN. Industrial applications require this capability to maximize performance and security, especially when under demanding conditions.

To effectively support the increasing real-time communication requirements in industrial settings, a strong Ethernet network backbone is essential. This compact managed switch allows for expanded bandwidth capabilities by adjusting your SFPs from 1 to 2.5 Gigabit – requiring no change to the appliance.

Enhanced network security is another critical component of any future-facing network. The Hirschmann BOBCAT Switch supports HiOS software and features several compelling security elements, including:

  • IEEE 802.1x port-based access control
  • Varying privilege levels
  • Configurable password policies
  • Security status monitor
  • Audit trail
These capabilities deliver more network reliability to reduce latency and ensure an uninterrupted production process

Applications

The Hirschmann BOBCAT Switch is an ideal solution for classic automation applications that require real-time communication, low latency, and the simultaneous synchronization of data and information to control operations. The appliance is best for engineers, system integrators and machine builders looking for a powerful and future-proof device.

Markets

This compact managed switch is an essential appliance relevant to many industrial markets, including automotive, manufacturing, machine building, water management, security, consumer packaged goods, and oil and gas. The Hirschmann BOBCAT Switch is also applicable to the transportation and power and energy industries, helping to deliver critical real-time information, like deterministic signaling and energy flow.




Key Features

  • Real-time TSN Ethernet support for precise data transmission
  • Advanced security features, including wire-speed access control lists (ACL) and automatic denial-of- service (DoS) prevention
  • Increased bandwidth capabilities, supporting tri-speed fiber SFP slots with 100MB/s, 1 Gig and 2.5 Gigabit speeds
  • Hardware-supported time synchronization in accordance with IEEE 1588v2 Precision Time Protocol
  • Interoperability with legacy systems for simplified migration
  • Additional interface options through digital input for more flexibility
  • Robust industrial design reinforces the switch’s resistance against harsh conditions
