Every year, the number of devices requiring greater bandwidth to remain reliable and well-connected increases. The Hirschmann BOBCAT Managed Switch is built to help manufacturers keep pace with this change and build next generation networks.
The switches support the new IEEE 802.3bz standard with 2.5 Gigabit speeds to bridge the gap between 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit speeds. Legacy devices or networks can be connected with 100 Mbit/s, 1 Gigabit uplinks for current networks or 2.5 Gigabit for future-proof networks. The BOBCAT switches support all speeds by replacing the SFP in the field.
For applications in need of maximum power without device limitations, these next generation compact switches provide Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) with up to 240 W.
The switches are also the first of its kind to enable real-time communication using time-sensitive networking (TSN). Industrial applications require this capability to maximize performance and security, even under the most demanding conditions.
