DRAGON MACH4000 Layer 3 Backbone Switches

The Hirschmann DRAGON MACH4000 series offers an innovative, technically-advanced architecture that delivers superior bandwidth (up to 10 Gigabit) for connecting OT and IT networks.

With four ports that can be set up for 2.5 Gigabit or 10 Gigabit, redundant power supplies and various management interfaces, engineers will be able to handle current and future bandwidth needs without compromising on availability. The extended port flexibility offered by DRAGON MACH4000 allows engineers to progressively transition the network rather than going directly from 1 Gigabit ports to 10 Gigabit ports.

  • Progressively transition from 1 GE to 2.5 GE to 10 GE speeds
  • Build a redundant backbone network for maximum availability
  • Redundant and hot-swappable internal power supply for maximum device uptime
  • Four 10 Gigabit uplink ports, which can also be used as 2.5 Gigabit ports through a simple SFP+ transceiver exchange
  • Four interface slots for the 12 x 1 Gigabit port modules, available in both copper and fiber
  • Two hot-swappable internal redundant power supplies
  • Hot-swappable fan unit
  • Multiple management interfaces, including USB, secure digital card and console port as well as HTML5 web interface
  • Extensive network security features and backward compatibility using Hirschmann’s best-in-class operating system HiOS

The DRAGON MACH4000 is best suited for applications that require high bandwidth and reliable data transfer. Customers looking to accomplish the following are prime candidates for the DRAGON MACH4000:

  • Connect IT and OT networks and transfer more data from the field level to the control room
  • Begin a progressive transition to 10 Gigabit speeds
  • Rely on fully redundant capabilities for data transmission and power input
  • Progressively transition from 1 GE to 2.5 GE to 10 GE speeds
