They enable cost-effective and highly secure IP communications for utility, oil and gas, mining, and industrial applications that monitor and control field automation endpoints such as intelligent electrical devices, industrial process controllers and SCADA devices. Ethernet and serial interfaces supporting DNP3 and Modbus provide future-proof operation to new and legacy devices. An integrated firewall and VPN provide enterprise-class security. These enterprise security features extend to the wired Ethernet and serial ports as well as to the wireless interface. The TropOS 1410-DIN extends the functionality of TropOS mesh networks to devices where installation of standalone TropOS routers is impractical.
Utility, mining, oil and gas as well as other industries are increasingly using wireless communications networks to monitor and control thousands of automation devices in the field. These field area networks support a diverse set of applications including automated metering infrastructure and distribution automation for utilities; wellhead monitoring and logging for oil and gas; traffic signal management and video monitoring for transportation; process control for refining and chemicals; and SCADA for a variety of vertical markets. In the past, utilities and other industrial companies have often used proprietary low-speed wireless communications systems with little security to implement their field area networks.
The TropOS 1410-DIN provides an economical vehicle for utilities and other industrial companies to securely implement field automation communication. It delivers the most advanced set of standards-based security features available for field area networks including a built-in firewall and a built-in IPsec VPN in every unit. Each TropOS 1410-DIN implements a multi-layer, multi-application security model that provides defense-in-depth and enables traffic from different applications and user groups to be segregated on separate virtual local area networks (VLANs).
Each VLAN has its own address space, quality of service policies and security policies including the ability to create one or more IPsec VPNs per VLAN. The TropOS 1410-DIN employs RADIUS, 802.1x, and 802.11i authentication, AES encryption and HTTPS-based remote access to secure field area networks from unauthorized devices, users and snooping. In addition, the product provides all features required for a utility to support NERC CIP v5.
