Cisco announces Ethernet 4000 industrial switches

February 042015

February 4, 2015 – Cisco announces Ethernet 4000 industrial switches with up to 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 40Gbps switching capacity for high speed/throughput devices and low-latency applications (PLCs, high-speed wireless AP, HD IP video cameras, etc.).

The IE 4000 provides a flexible and scalable IoT platform available, allowing organizations to future-proof networks by meeting the increased bandwidth and PoE requirements of industrial applications. Delivering an industry-leading switching capacity as a DIN rail compliant form factor, the IE 4000 can improve uptime and performance of industrial assets and increases operational safety and efficiency by providing real-time information about the endpoints on the network.

The IE 4000 extends the family of Cisco Industrial Ethernet Switching Series, providing enhanced features for IoT industrial networks:

Up to 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 40Gbps switching capacity for high speed/throughput devices and low-latency applications (PLCs, high-speed wireless AP, HD IP video cameras, etc.).

In-line power for industrial devices (IP cameras, IP phones, badge readers, 802.11ac wireless APs, etc.) throughout an industrial floor, allowing for movement of these devices as needed without an overhaul of an electrical system.

Secure IoT deployments as physical security is integrated with advanced network security, Cisco End to End TrustSec, allowing device and data authentication and policy settings on the network.

Cisco also announced the Industrial Operations Kit, based on the Connected Grid Network Management System. Virtualizing secure network services on a single Cisco Unified Computing Server, the Industrial Operations Kit can be deployed in a matter of days. The kit plays a critical role in creating efficient, secure and affordable industrial architectures for small to midsize organizations and large field area network pilots.

The Industrial Operations Kit offers new levels of manageability and control for services such as smart utility grids, roads, rails, airports and fleets by managing up to 300 industrial routers and 250,000 RF Mesh endpoints with a single server. The kit includes a single headend router, bundled with Cisco PRIME Access Registrar software for authentication, authorization and accounting, and the Connected Grid Network Management System with Cisco Embedded Services Routers for zero-touch deployment.
