Belden equips traffic control system in Darmstadt with Industrial Ethernet technology from Hirschmann

A highly available network with a large performance reserve

Together with our partner HSE Technik, we recently equipped Darmstadt’s traffic control system with an optical Ethernet network comprising a Gigabit backbone ring and eight sub-rings that support Fast Ethernet. Both the cabling and the 84 switches from Belden's Hirschmann product range are configured redundantly. Use of MRP (Media Redundancy Protocol) and HIPER Ring enables switching times of less than 200 milliseconds, guaranteeing maximum reliability for this Layer 2 network.
