Ethernet redundancy device sets speed record

19 August 2014

Siemens Ruggedcom RS950G has set a speed record – the utility grade IEC 62439-3 compatible product demonstrated a transmission rate of 1 Gbps on HSR (high-availability seamless redundancy) and PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) links.

This speed was achieved during interoperability tests conducted in July 2014 in preparation for an interoperability demonstration by the UCA International Users Group (UCAlug), a non-profit organisation that includes utilities, suppliers, universities and other institutions dedicated to enhancing interoperability for the utility enterprise using open international standards.

The RS950G has been designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments, such as power generation and distribution, and for rail transport. 

The results of this recent interoperability test demonstrated that Ruggedcom RS950G is able to meet the demands of the high-speed communications networks of the future by achieving a transmission rate of 1 Gbps on HSR and PRP while supporting standards such as IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1588.
