New iGigaSwitch 10xx E+ family

New 10x Ports Managed Industrial Ethernet Switches Family

ANS iGigaSwitch 1002 E+ with callouts

Nexans introduces the new iGigaSwitch 10xx E+ family - 10 ports managed Industrial Ethernet switches family with new processor, real-time management, harmonized design, more flexibility and new features. The new switches family replaces existed iSwitch family and will be available in several versions with different combination of copper and fibre ports.

The new iGigaSwitch 10xx E+ family has 10x Gigabit ports in different combination of copper and fibre ports (including the model with 8x Vario SFP ports with DDM) to provide more flexibility in network design. Up to 8x connected devices can be powered by using PoE/PoE+ technology (30Watts per port with 240Watt budget according to the latest IEEE 802.3at standard). Built-in I/O interfaces allow a fast, simple and low-cost integration of non-IP based devices directly in the field - different sensors, controllers, buttons etc.

There is a critically important functionality for Smart Grid: Nexans iGigaSwitch families comply with IEC 61850 requirements (parts 6, 7-1, 7-2, 7-3, 7-4, 8-1, 9-1 and 9-2,  SERVER functionality - MMS and GOOSE). This functionality allows using standardized equipment to ensure correct and reliable communication of all networked devices of Smart grid infrastructure (including switches, PLCs, different controllers, sensors etc.) with each other and with central SCADA. The compliance is tested and confirmed by KEMA/DNV-GL.

iGigaSwitch 10xx E+ family has wide functionality targeted to make the network more secure and its maintenance easier. Those switches offers tested and approved interoperability (special evaluation documents are available), including proprietary protocols, with a wide range of manufacturers, including Cisco, HP, Alcatel Lucent (Nokia), Extreme Networks, etc.
