OB/NETWORK is a Redundant Railway Ethernet Switch offering a large number of advantages in the realization of an on-board Gigabit Ethernet network, meeting the most demanding needs in bandwidth, reliability and security for train services and operations.
OB/NETWORK provides all the key features of a Layer2/Layer3 switch, such as VLAN and Quality of Service support, inter-VLAN routing, traffic shaping and full multicast support. It's fully manageable, provi-ding detailed diagnostics based on SNMP protocol. DHCP server and client roles offer the ability to develop a self-contained network solution. RSTP/MSTP allow the deployment of more complex and redundant network topologies.
In-vehicle hosts can be connected to the OB/NETWORK with Tera connectors.
