RUGGEDCOM RS950G

The RUGGEDCOM RS950G is an IEC 62439-3 Redundancy Box (RedBox), supporting both High Availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) and Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP). The RS950G provides the ultimate in network reliability from any network fault. This is achieved by simultaneously transmitting duplicate packets on independent routes through the network to provide complete path redundancy at the data link layer.

Managed HSR/PRP redundancy box with 128-bit encryption


Ethernet Ports

  • 3 configurable copper or fiber ports
    - 2 IEC 62439 Ethernet ports (HSR or PRP)
    - 1 Access port for standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet devices

  • SFP pluggable fiber transceiver with 100FX or 1000LX/SX options

  • 3 X 10/100/1000 BaseT copper ports (disabled when SFP present)

  • RS232 Console Port

  • Up to 70km with long-haul optics

Cybersecurity

  • Passwords – Multilevel user passwords secure switch against unauthorized configuration

  • SSH / SSL – Extends capability of password protection to add 128-bit encryption of passwords and data as they cross the network

  • MAC-based port security – Ability to secure ports on a switch so only specific devices / MAC addresses can communicate via that port

  • RADIUS – Authentication service using MD5 hash and providing centralized password management

  • SNMPv3 – Encrypted authentication access security and data encryption (CBC-DES with 56-bit encryption key)
