Substations are a significant part of the power generation, transmission and distribution system and are a vital element of the SMART grid. Power, transmission and distribution applications have real-time dependencies on data acquisition, protection, control and performance, which require a highly reliable and integrated communications network. Ethernet communication networks make it faster and easier to achieve real-time monitoring and control of many different types of devices.

As such it is important to implement platforms that improve reliability and security while allowing for better visibility and control of data. Below are two of our hardened products that help you achieve the flexibility that you seek in your network.
