Gigabit Ethernet Switches from Red Lion Come With New Security Features

July 14, 2023
Access, connect, visualize and protect data with N-Tron Series NT5000 gigabit industrial switches.

Red Lion, a manufacturer of technologies that help industrial organizations access, connect and visualize data, launched N-Tron Series NT5000 Gigabit Managed Layer 2 Ethernet switches.

Reliable and secure network access is critical to any industrial environment. NT5000 switches and their gigabit speed are designed to improve network security and reliability for industrial organizations of all sizes and environments.

Not all switches are equipped with the layered network security to help prevent unauthorized access. The NT5000 boasts password encryption, multilevel user access and MAC security, and IEEE 802.1X with RADIUS remote authentication.

A convenient security aspect of the industrial-grade design of the NT5000 switches is that it is supported by an event and syslog, allowing administrators to view the state of the network in real time. Notifications about access attempts or configuration changes are generated as well. Moreover, the switch can be set to automatically disable user or port credentials after failed access attempts.

Features of the N-Tron Series NT5000:      

  • Graphical dashboards
  • N-Ring auto-member
  • Port mirroring
  • Cable diagnostics
  • STP/RSTP/MSTP
  • IGMP v1/v2/v3
  • SNMP v1/v2/v3
  • NTP, LLDP and LACP
  • Fast boot allowing traffic to pass in less than 20 seconds
  • Wide shock and vibration tolerance
  • Extensive compliance certifications, including Product Safety: (UL/CUL) Ordinary and Hazardous locations, Emissions/Immunity: FCC/ICES/CE, ATEX/IECEx, Marine: ABS, Rail: EN 50155, EN 50121, EN 61373, UKCA

Empowering Network Management 

N-Tron Series NT5000 gigabit industrial switches are available in 6, 8, 10, 16 and 18 port configurations in all copper or a mix of copper and fiber options that can meet specific installation requirements.

With a durable, metal enclosure and wide temperature range, the series has a compact design for reliable operation in harsh, industrial environments.

The NT5000 is suited to a range of industries, from factory automation, robotics, food and beverage, to oil and gas, marine and rail.

“Clear, comprehensive and fast network management is essential for organizations to achieve maximum uptime,” noted Diane Davis, director of product management, networking, at Red Lion. “The NT5000’s simple graphical user interface includes a logical view showing active ports, power supply, temperature and contact relay status of the switch and color-coded gauges for port traffic and events to allow administrators to quickly identify and address possible network disruptions in real-time, helping lower total cost of ownership.”
