First publishedITS America
Siemens is showcasing its new line of rugged network components on the showroom floor at ITS America in Pittsburgh this week. The new Ruggedcom RSG920P, a new high-port density Ethernet switch, is designed to operate in harsh environments with widely varying climatic and environmental conditions.
Withstanding extreme temperature, vibration and shock, the device offers high reliability for transportation systems. With 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the Ruggedcom RSG920P is suitable for applications that require high bandwidths and is ready to accommodate future network expansions. Four SFP (Small Form Factor Pluggable) slots provide flexibility in uplink distances and bandwidth options with support for Gigabit as well as Fast Ethernet fiber SFPs.
The small form factor of the Ruggedcom RSG920P provides the capacity of a 19” switch and allows deployment in space limited cabinets. Due to its small size, the switch can be mounted directly on a DIN-Rail. The Ruggedcom RSG920P helps meet the growing demand for Ethernet in roadside and wayside cabinets by eliminating the need for multiple switches. Customers can reduce cabling costs and simplify camera, radio and peripheral device connectivity by supplying power and Ethernet over one cable.
