Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has announced a new solution from GarrettCom that combines routing with network security - the Magnum 5RX Fixed Configuration Security Router. This integrated router offers superior network performance, while addressing the escalating security concerns associated with industrial applications in highly distributed environments.
"This integrated routing and security solution not only provides a cost-effective option for improved efficiency and network reliability, but also gives Belden customers the ability to migrate to more advanced IP-based network solutions at their own pace," said Maggie Wu, director of product line management at Belden. "Used together with the Magnum 10RX routers, Belden's industrial customers can now build a total network solution from core to edge, with fast deployment, easy network management and reduced network downtime.
"Designed for mid-level industrial applications where hardened and industrial grade solutions are required, the Magnum 5RX Security Router offers a comprehensive set of features essential for success in the field. These features provide maximum protection for power transmission and distribution settings and make the router especially well-suited for deployments at the edge of the network where modular solutions are either too expensive or not required.
The new two-in-one router is equipped with legacy network protocol and interface supports, as well as EtherNet/IP presence, offering a valuable migration path to the new generation of network backbones. The router's advanced software features offer best-in-class firewall protection and virtual private network (VPN) security along with advanced Layer 3 routing capabilities.
