Transmission solutions group Belden Inc. updated its Hirschmann HiLCOS 9.0 WLAN software for maximum network availability and data security across wireless connections.
HiLCOS 9.0 helps ensure the highest-available wireless connection, while also protecting industrial networks from malicious behavior. Many markets, such as transportation (railways), power transmission and distribution, oil and gas, renewable energy, machine building and other hazardous environments, can benefit from the software’s newest features.
Additional features available in the 9.0 version include:
· Simple deployment through an Automatic Wireless Distribution System (AutoWDS).
· Enhanced security through a Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS), Protected Management Frames (PMF), Layer 2 firewalls with stateful packet inspection and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA).
· Zero network failover due to Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP), even in situations with high latency and traffic congestion.
Belden’s global brands include Hirschmann, GarrettCom and Tofino Security.
