Belden Offers Faster, More Reliable Data Transfer with Layer 3 Backbone Switches

New, Technically Advanced Architecture Delivers Superior Bandwidth and Network Performance

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has released a new version of its Hirschmann brand Layer 3 backbone switches – the DRAGON MACH4000/MACH4500 Series. These next generation devices allow engineers to transfer larger quantities of data faster without compromising network availability or performance.

“Increasing data density is making it challenging for engineers to get information from the field level to the control room quickly and on time. They need a way to keep up with demand and move larger quantities of data, without compromising reliability or availability,” said Sebastian Preiss, product manager. “With this in mind, Hirschmann has updated its classic MACH4000 switch with extended flexibility and bandwidth capabilities. The new solutions will help engineers handle evolving data requirements and ensure their networks are performing at the highest level.”

The DRAGON MACH4000/MACH4500 series offer redundant power supplies, various new, advanced interfaces and variants with either four or eight ports that can be set up for 2.5 or 10 Gigabit speeds. These features help engineers in data-rich industrial environments accomplish the following:

  • Connect OT and IT networks and progressively transition to 10 Gigabit speeds
  • Maximize availability with redundant backbone infrastructures
  • Transition from 1 Gigabit networks to 2.5 and then to 10 Gigabit as the network bandwidth requirements increase

DRAGON MACH4000/MACH4500 series products are best suited for applications that require high bandwidths and reliable data transfer, especially in transportation scenarios, including mass transit systems such as: railway and train stations, airports and rail-rolling stock. Manufacturing, oil and gas and power transmission and distribution applications also benefit the superior performance, availability and ease of use delivered through this entirely new product family.
