HiOS 6.0_PB_KV_INIT_HIR_0416_EMEA_mittel_160x112px

HiOS 6.0 software supports various security mechanisms, comprehensive management and diagnostic methods, precise time synchronization and redundancy protocols. As a result, the switches in the RSP, RSPE (Expandable), RSPL (Lite), RSPS (Smart), RED, Embedded Ethernet (EES), GREYHOUND families, and OCTOPUS, as well as the modular MSP system, can be used to implement fail-safe Networks.

The following software packets can be downloaded directly from the relevant product section within the eCatalog:

Switching
Layer 2
Standard
Suitable for RSP, RSPE, RED, GREYHOUND and OCTOPUS series. In addition to numerous management and diagnostic options, HiOS provides precise time synchronization compliant with IEEE 1588v2 plus a variety of redundancy protocols. With zero switchover times, the PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) and HSR (High-Availability Seamless Redundancy) redundancy methods ensure smooth production processes. Comprehensive security mechanisms protect your network against attacks and operating errors, so also contributing to high network availability.
Layer 2
Embedded
Suitable for EES series. In addition to numerous management and diagnostic options, HiOS provides precise time synchronization compliant with IEEE 1588v2 plus a variety of redundancy protocols. With zero switchover times, the PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) and HSR (High-Availability Seamless Redundancy) redundancy methods ensure smooth production processes. Comprehensive security mechanisms protect your network against attacks and operating errors, so also contributing to high network availability.
Layer 2
Advanced
Suitable for OCTOPUS, MSP, GREYHOUND, RSPE, and RSP series. The Advanced Level includes all features of the Standard Level plus additional redundancy enhancements with MRP over Link Aggregation and DLR, as well as the FuseNet™ family of redundant network coupling protocols. The software also includes Quality of Service functions such as DiffServ, MAC and IP based VLANs, protocol based VLANs and security mechanisms like enhanced Access Control Lists (ACL), Flow based ACL, RADIUS-based policy assignment, IP source guard, dynamic ARP inspection and IEEE 802.1x multi client authentication.
Layer 3
Standard
Suitable for OCTOPUS, RSP and RSPE series. Layer 3 software includes the functionality of L2 software plus additional functionality such as static routing, 1:1 Network Address Translation, Router Redundancy and multicast forwarding. Ethernet Train Backbone is available for OCTOPUS.
Layer 3
Advanced
Suitable for MSP series. Layer 3 software includes the functionality of L3 Standard software plus additional functionality plus a wide range of dynamic routing protocols, for unicast- and multicast protocols.
