The HiOS software from Hirschmann increases the power and performance of its Industrial Ethernet switches. HiOS software supports various security mechanisms, comprehensive management and diagnostic methods, precise time synchronization and redundancy protocols.
|Software Levels||Functionality||More Information|
|Layer 2 Standard||Suitable for BOBCAT, RSP, RSPE, RED, GREYHOUND and OCTOPUS series. In addition to numerous IPv4 and IPv6 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) methods ensure smooth production processes. Comprehensive security mechanisms protect your network against attacks and operating errors, also contributing to high network availability. TSN for RSPE35, RSPE37, BRS and OCTOPUS with FPGA.||Online Catalog|
|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 and HSR methods ensure smooth production processes. Comprehensive security mechanisms protect your network against attacks and operating errors, also contributing to high network availability.||Online Catalog|
|Layer 2 Advanced||Suitable for OCTOPUS, MSP, GREYHOUND, BOBCAT, 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 an OPC UA server, 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.||Online Catalog|
