New router from Weidmuller
Weidmuller’s new total solution router is designed for Gigabit Ethernet security applications in remote control or monitoring networks. It provides an increased security for the protection of critical assets in a wide range of applications.
Communication networks used for office applications and for automation are converging. The advantages that result from this process are put into practice more and more frequently because they make procedures more transparent and facilitate data exchange substantially.
By connecting network components, the new router enables network nodes to exchange data. It also allows an industrial IP network to access the Internet via an external DSL modem (via PPPoE). The router is responsible for routing IP packets between an industrial network and external networks. Internet access is automatically activated when needed. The Router can be configured on-site using an IP network on both Ethernet ports (LAN or WAN).
The router has implemented extensive security standards to enable different networks to work together. Additionally VPN (virtual private network) connections can be used to connect the router as a VPN-Client or a VPN-Server with other VPN devices.
