SIC-R – Redbox Switch

Smart Grids demand more powerful devices in order to keep the network infrastructure working. SIC-R is a new concept of modern “managed” device where the intelligence integrated can manage redundant networks with non-packet-loss ethernet communications, synchronization and cybersecurity capabilities. This device is able to interconnect PRP and HSR networks at the same time that extend HSR rings via Quadbox operation.
