Software Optimized for Connected Energy Applications

The CGR 2010 ESM software is optimized for Connected Energy applications such as grid automation, distributed generation, integrated renewable energy, trackside substations, and water, oil, and gas applications and builds on the strength of Cisco IOS Software, which powers mission-critical networks across the world. Numerous new features make the CGR 2010 ESM the optimal Ethernet switch module for energy network operators, such as Smartport templates, which enable simple configuration for utility environments. In additon, many default behaviors of the CGR 2010 ESM are different from those of traditional Ethernet switches, making the CGR 2010 ESM easier to configure, manage, secure, and troubleshoot.

High Availability and Redundancy

High availability is a vital requirement for networks that transport mission-critical data. The CGR 2010 supports dual-redundant field-replacable power supplies and SFP modules, which increase network uptime for GRWICs such as the CGR 2010 ESM.

To further increase high availability on a networkwide level, CGR 2010 ESM offers REP and Flexlink for fast reconvergence, link-state tracking, IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), per-VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree Plus (PVRST+), and the Cisco Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP). These capabilities help to create redundant, failsafe topologies. Strong, built-in security helps prevent the device and the network from succumbing to malicious attacks, thereby enhancing network uptime.

Security

The wide range of security features on the CGR 2010 ESM protects mission-critical traffic, prevents unauthorized access, and maintains uninterrupted operation. The CGR 2010 ESM protects operational and nonoperational data by focusing on securing connectivity, defending against network threats, and providing trust and identity features.

Protecting a network begins with securing connectivity. For example, ACLs can be used to restrict access to sensitive portions of the network. To defend against network threats such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) spoofing, DHCP snooping can be used to allow only DHCP requests (but not responses) from untrusted user-facing ports. Workforce management is a critical use case where trust and identity features such as IEEE 802.1x can be used to enable strong security policies, yet provide maximum mobility to a remote workforce.
