Belden releases router to streamline industrial network management


Belden launches dual purpose router to streamline industrial network management

Thursday, Apr 30, 2015

World-leading provider of signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, Belden introduces the Magnum 5RX fixed configuration security router from GarrettCom designed to optimise network performance and minimise risk.

Combining routing with network security, GarrettCom fixed configuration security router offers superior network performance, while addressing the escalating security concerns associated with industrial applications in highly distributed environments. These security routers are designed for mid-level industrial applications requiring hardened and industrial grade solutions.

Maggie Wu, director of product line management at Belden explains that the new integrated routing and security solution provides a cost-effective option for improved efficiency and network reliability, while also enabling Belden customers to migrate to more advanced IP-based network solutions at their own pace.

When used together with the Magnum 10RX routers, the GarrettCom fixed configuration router enables industrial customers to build a total network solution from core to edge, with advantages including fast deployment, easy network management and reduced network downtime.

Key features in the GarrettCom Magnum 5RX security routers maximise protection for power transmission and distribution settings, making the device especially well-suited for deployments at the edge of the network where modular solutions are either too expensive or not required.

These features include legacy network protocol and interface support as well as EtherNet/IP presence offering a valuable migration path to the new generation of network backbones; and software features providing best-in-class firewall protection and VPN security along with advanced Layer 3 routing capabilities.
