The MultiNet1000 is purpose-built for extremely harsh environments such as power utility substations, and meets IEEE1613 and IEC 61850-3 specifications for EMI/ESD protection. With the ability to operate at -40°C to +85°C without open vent holes or fans, and support for both single and dual wide-ranging power supply options, the MultiNet1000 is ready for almost any location challenge.

With support for IP routing services in both LAN and WAN applications, each of the MultiNet1000 Ethernet ports can be configured to operate as part of the integrated managed switch, or in routed mode as a discrete interface. IP routing is provided on any combination of physical and virtual interfaces, including per VLAN. WAN interfaces include dual T1/E1 or dual DDS ports using the MultiNet1000’s integral CSU/DSU for access to IP-based, TDM, frame relay or MPLS-based services. IP/PPP/a sync is also supported on the WAN interfaces, which provides a dial-up WAN option when combined with external AT-compatible modems. In addition, the MultiNet1000 can support static routing, as well as dynamic routing via RIP, OSPF, and/or BGP, ensuring easy inter-operation with existing networks and routing schemes.
