These devices are highly-scalable and they’re built-to-order from the factory.
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has updated its Hirschmann multi-port firewalls - the EAGLE20-0400 and EAGLE30-0402 - to offer additional flexibility of deployment, as well as state-of-the-art security functionality. With new router redundancy and wide area network (WAN) interface, the EAGLE family helps achieve maximum network availability and security in any industrial setting.
Through the newest enhancement – support for symmetrical high-speed digital subscriber line (SHDSL) connections – customers can now transmit network control and monitoring data over traditional copper telephone lines, in addition to Ethernet cabling.
“These devices are highly-scalable and they’re built-to-order from the factory, so our customers can select the various combinations of ports they need to meet their network’s requirements,” said Product Manager Vinod Rana. “There are up to eight ports available, and you can select from Fast Ethernet, gigabit, and now, SHDSL ports.”
To support the enhancements on the EAGLE20-0400 and EAGLE30-0402, Belden has also introduced the next version of its operating software: the Hirschmann Security Operating System (HiSecOS) Version 1.2. This newest version of software heightens network performance and adds more robust security features for the EAGLE firewalls.
