Juniper Networks LN2600 Rugged Secure Router targets smart grids

Juniper Networks says the LN2600 Rugged Secure Router is designed to withstand the strongest vibrations and shock.

The absence of vents and other openings make the LN2600 dust-proof and splash resistant, and the lack of moving parts such as fans allow it to operate maintenance-free for years.

The LN2600 ships in a 1U rack or wall-mountable chassis that supports 8 Gigabit Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver interfaces. It is shock-tolerant, impervious to vibration and is IEC IP64, indicating that it is dust tight and splash resistant.

The LN2600 is able to operate in extreme temperatures between -40゜C to +71゜and relies on conduction, as opposed to traditional fans, for cooling.

In addition, hardware-based hierarchical quality-of-service capabilities enable mission-critical supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) traffic to be prioritized over the network.

Juniper Networks on Wednesday said Dual-boot root partitions and a Non-Volatile Memory Read-Only (NVMRO) option enable more reliable operations and protection against modifications and theft in remote unmanned locations.

The LN2600 meets IEEE 1613 Class 2 for environmental requirements for electrical substations, IEC 61850-3 for electrical substation automation and North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC/CIP) to enable secure, two-way communication required in Smart Grids.

The LN2600 router is deployed with Juniper routing technology, ensuring forwarding and routing support even under the most demanding network traffic loads.

The routing capabilities of the LN2600 include radio router protocol support which enables it to address difficult mobile networking issues such as establishing a mesh network configuration using extensions to OSPFv3 routing protocol to include other mobile devices as well as land-based receivers.

The LN2600 provides a hardware assisted stateful firewall, IPsec VPN encryption, and Intrusion Prevention based on the capabilities provided in Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways.

As a network edge device, the security capabilities within the LN2600 provide network access protection for critical Infrastructure—whether in a substation, subway, gas or water line, on an oil rig, or on the battlefield.
