Increase Industrial Networks Resilience, Scalability and Security

Get a highly secure, flexible, reliable, and scalable Industrial Ethernet platform built to withstand extreme industrial environments. Industrial Ethernet 4010 Series Switches offer 24 Gigabit PoE/PoE+ capable ports, making them an ideal choice for use as access switches in industrial environments to connect high definition IP cameras, Access Points and IP phones. These switches provide high-bandwidth switching (Layer 2) and proven Cisco IOS Software-based routing (Layer 3) capabilities to improve uptime, performance, and safety of industrial systems and equipment.

Features and Capabilities

The 4010 Series switches are built to withstand extreme environments while adhering to overall IT network design, compliance, and performance requirements. They deliver highly secure access and industry-leading convergence using Cisco Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP), and support industrial protocols. The series is ideal for industrial Ethernet vertical industries applications where hardened products are required. That includes:

  • Factory automation
  • Power utility substations
  • Intelligent transportation systems (ITS)
  • Oil and gas field sites
  • City surveillance programs

With improved overall performance, a more comprehensive feature set, and enhanced hardware, 4010 Series switches offer:

  • Superior bandwidth and capacity – 56-Gbps non-blocking switching capacity with 28-Gigabit-Ethernet (GE) ports
  • High-density, industrial Power over Ethernet (PoE) or PoE Plus (PoE+) support for in-line power to up to 24 devices
  • Cisco IOS Software features for smooth IT integration and policy consistency
  • Robust resiliency enabled by a dual-ring design with 4x Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports, Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP), Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP), EtherChannel, and Flex Links support
  • Easy deployment, with zero-touch discovery using DHCP and an express setup with a swappable SD flash card
  • A user-friendly device manager, Cisco Network Assistant, Cisco Prime interface, and third-party management solutions
  • Hardened for vibration, shock, surge, and electrical noise immunity, extended operation temperature range (-40 – 75C)
  • A simple software upgrade path with a universal software image

Key Benefits

  • Reduced downtime through high availability technology to facilitate network wide resilience
  • Lower operating costs with inline power for PoE/PoE+ devices, allowing easy installation and updates
  • Improved security with integration of security policy enforcement within the switch
  • Investment protection from software licensing, which offers new improved software features without hardware upgrades
  • Improved efficiency of your internal IT and operations teams using a single, standardized platform
  • Increased speed and flexibility needed to bring products to market and adapt to changing business challenges
