The new mGuard security routers from Phoenix Contact with integrated mobile phone interface make industrial communication in the worldwide mobile phone network more secure.
Integrated security technologies such as VPN and firewall offer the optimum solution here. American CDMA mobile phone networks are now supported in addition to UMTS/HASPA.
The products have a robust metal housing, two SIM card slots, a GPS receiver, and support two or ten VPN tunnels, depending on their design. In addition, the new devices offer an integrated 4-port switch - in the most sophisticated design, this is a Managed Switch. Furthermore, SD memory cards are supported. They function as a replaceable configuration memory for fast start-up and easy device replacement.
Industrial telecommunication products are key components within remote control and maintenance solutions. Internet and VPN based solutions therefore replace modem dial-up connections and pose new challenges for products: the transmission of large amounts of data, high transmission speeds, and protection against unauthorised access must also be guaranteed. Thanks to the new mGuard security routers with integrated mobile phone interface, a high-performance system for secure remote communication is now available.
