Companies can prepare their production facilities for more demanding,
data-intensive networking with the new high-performance, all-gigabit
Allen-Bradley Stratix 5800 managed industrial Ethernet switch
. The switch supports layer 2 access switching and layer 3 routing for use
in multiple layers of the architecture. Robust security capabilities and
ISA/IEC 62443-4-2 certification help enhance network security.
The Stratix 5800 switch has fixed and modular designs, giving users
flexibility to configure it based on application needs. It offers
combinations of copper, fiber and Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports to
support a wide range of architectures.
The switch helps ease integration by addressing the needs of both
operations (OT) and IT teams. Studio 5000 Add-on Profiles enable premier
integration into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture. And the
Cisco IOS-XE operating system helps ease integration to the enterprise.

“Reducing the complexity of IT/OT convergence is a priority today as
companies need to connect their operations while managing challenges like
skills shortages and security threats,” said Mark Devonshire, product
manager, Rockwell Automation. “The Stratix 5800 managed switch helps
simplify the jobs of IT and OT teams, and helps improve security and high
performance for industrial environments.”
Certification to ISA/IEC 62443-4-2 verifies that the switch meets the
standard’s technical requirements to security level 2 for industrial
automation and control systems. This continues the efforts of Rockwell
Automation to help secure industrial operations through certifications,
expertise, products and services.
