As train builders and operators look to connect more onboard equipment – including data-intensive, high-speed cameras and internet devices – they need a strong network backbone to provide continuous uptime and accurate data transmission. Belden, a global supplier of network infrastructure and digitization solutions, announced the launch of its Hirschmann BXP (BOBCAT eXtreme Performance) managed switch to meet the dynamic needs of railway rolling stock applications.

Managed Switch

This extension of Hirschmann’s BOBCAT switch family offers a compact design, high port density (20-port and 28-port variants), enhanced flexibility and interoperability, speeds of up to 10 gigabits Gbps. PoE++ up to 120 W, and protocols like high-availability seamless redundancy (HSR) and parallel redundancy protocol (PRP).

The BXP managed switch meets essential railway rolling stock standards, such as European Standards EN 50155 and EN 50121 and EN 45545, for shock, operating temperature, electromagnetic interference, vibration, fire resistance and other conditions. The BXP has attained multiple international and industry certifications – including Conformité Européenne (CE), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
