Features and Capabilities

Cisco Industrial Ethernet 2000U (IE 2000U) Series Switches work in the harsh environments common in transmission and distribution substations, including small cabinets in space-constrained locations such as pole tops. The Cisco IE 2000U uses Cisco IOS Software, the operating system that powers millions of Cisco switches worldwide.

Primary features include:

  • Rugged industrial design and substation compliance (meets IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 standards for utility substation environments)
  • Advanced capabilities to support mission-critical substation applications such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and IEC 61850 Generic Object-Oriented Substation Events (GOOSE) messaging
  • Support for Precision Timing Protocol (PTP) applications based on IEEE 1588 v2 standards

Cisco IE 2000U Series Switches provide:

  • Hitless failover protocol support of Parallel Redundancy Protocol based on the IEC 62439-3 standard
  • Support for the Resilient Ethernet Protocol (REP) and Flex Links for fast reconvergence in ring and hub-and-spoke topologies
  • SmartPort templates for one-touch global and port-level macros to simplify switch deployments

The IE2000U can be easily managed by Cisco Industrial Network Director, a network management system purpose built for industrial applications that uses the complete capabilities of the Cisco Industrial Ethernet product family to make the network easily accessible to non-IT operations personnel.

Use the rugged Cisco IE 2000U switches along with the CGS 2520 Connected Grid Switches and the Cisco 2000 Series Connected Grid Router
