RSG2488

Product Description


The RUGGEDCOM RSG2488 provides up to 28 non-blocking ports that can be configured as 10/100/1000TX copper, 100FX, 1000SX or 1000LX fiber. With its 1U form factor and vertical loading design, the RUGGEDCOM RSG2488 provides users with the flexibility and field maintenance simplicity needed to efficiently implement, maintain and evolve a broadband local area network.

RUGGEDCOM RSG2488 can operate as an IEEE 1588 transparent clock, ordinary clock, master clock and supports both 1-step and 2-step operations. The available PTP module also allows the RUGGEDCOM RSG2488 to get timing information from GPS and serve as a grandmaster clock for downstream time recipients. 

The RUGGEDCOM RSG2488 is a modular and field replaceable platform that allows you to select amongst Ethernet options, making it ideally suited for electric power utilities, the industrial plant floor, rail and traffic control systems.
