Secure Network Interoperation
02 November 2012
Designed for Gigabit Ethernet security applications in remote control or monitoring networks, Weidmuller’s new total solution Router provides increased security for the protection of critical assets in a wide range of applications such as water treatments and controls systems in oil and gas applications.
Communication networks used for office applications and for automation are converging. The advantages that result from this process are put into practice more and more frequently because they make procedures more transparent and facilitate data exchange substantially.
By connecting network components, the new router enables network nodes to exchange data. It also allows an industrial IP network to access the Internet via an external DSL modem (via PPPoE). The router is responsible for routing IP packets between an industrial network and external networks. Internet access is automatically activated when needed. The Router can be configured on-site using an IP network on both Ethernet ports (LAN or WAN).
