Meeting demand for greater bandwidth with 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch

22 May 2022

Westermo has introduced a new 10Gb industrial Ethernet switch designed to meet increasing demand for greater bandwidth in mission-critical applications, enabling modern, large-scale data communication networks to transmit more information.

The RedFox 7528 is said to offer a solution for mission-critical rail trackside, energy and process industry applications.

Ensuring security of industrial data communication networks is vital, especially with the nature of cyberattacks becoming increasingly sophisticated. To reduce risk and increase cyber resilience, the RedFox 7528 has an extensive suite of advanced cybersecurity features. These can be used to build networks in compliance with the IEC 62443 standard.

The RedFox 7528 offers functionality that enables high-speed, low-latency connectivity with supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, and equipment such as HD IP CCTV cameras deployed in industrial settings. Suitable for 19in cabinets, the switch provides four 10 gigabit uplink ports and 24 one-gigabit ports, customisable with SFP transceivers, and a switch core that prevents congestion when network traffic spikes. 

The device also features configurable I/O fault contacts to support easy installation and monitoring.

Helping to reduce complexity, the RedFox 7528 is powered by the WeOS operating system, which ensures continuous operation and support for an expanding range of protocols and features, and simplifies installation, operation and maintenance. WeOS provides future-proofed network solutions with high levels of resiliency and security. Westermo’s FRNT ring protocol ensures fast recovery of networks should a node or connection be lost.
