Sixnet (News - Alert) from Red Lion Controls are the industrial Ethernet switches that bring together advanced performance with rugged reliability to offer a “best of both worlds” solution for many of today’s industrial applications. The company’s switches are suited for harsh and outdoor atmospheres including power substations, smart grid, military, utility, transportation and other industries where real-time performance under extreme operating conditions is required.
Recently, the company expanded its military-grade Ethernet switch portfolio with the new Sixnet MIL300 series. These new Layer 3 switches offer Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet performance, advanced security features and a common software platform for easy deployment.
Offering an ideal Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solution that decreases development time and simplifies procurement in military or heavy industrial environments, all of the MIL300 series switches provide durable packaging, protected circuitry and advanced software. The MIL300 switches are suited for C4ISR - Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, situational awareness, combat vehicle, airborne and shipboard networks, the company stated in a press release.
“As military vehicles and applications become more technology-intensive, the need for rugged, high-performance, full-featured military-rated switches will continue to expand - on land, air and sea," said Scott Killian, director of military sales at Red Lion Controls. "The new Sixnet MIL300 series reflects Red Lion's continued commitment to developing military-grade switch offerings. Our expanded portfolio gives customers the flexibility they need to customize solutions for specific environments.”
