Industrial Firewall / Router with Gigabit Switch

Industrial Firewall / Router with Gigabit Switch (GUARD-FS)

GUARD-FS

With the GUARD-FS, MPL has integrated several systems into one housing, a Firewall, a VPN-Gateway, a Router, as well as an Ethernet Switch with your choice of copper and/or fiber ports. You can imagine the broad use of the GUARD-FS with this functionality.
Today, everything is getting automated. Therefore security in this automated world is becoming more and more important. The key differences of industrial applications are that they require a long-term availability due to the life cycle management of the investments.

GUARD-FS Highlights

The system can be operated from -20°C to +60°C (optional -40°C to +85°C), without the need of a fan or case openings. The capability to offer copper as well as SFP ports for various fiber optical solutions make the product universal. This versatility is supported by the availability of a software development kit, the powerful 1.2 GHz ARM processor, and the 512 Mbyte built in flash that allows for customer specific extensions.

These features make the GUARD-FS to the ideal solution for industrial, transportation and defense applications where security, quality, reliability, low power consumption, and long-term availability are key. Just to name a few, the GUARD-FS can be used for applications such as remote monitoring & maintenance, secure communication in automation, etc..

Standard Compliance
The GUARD-FS is designed to meet or exceed the most common standards. Particular references are:
EMC EN 55022, EN 55024, EN 61000, MIL-STD-461E
Shock & Vibration EN 60068
Environmental & Safety EN 50155, MIL-STD-810-F, EN 60601, EN 60950

Software
The GUARD-FS comes preinstalled with an adapted version of OpenWRT ( www.openwrt.org). This Linux based embedded distribution provides all functionality required for operation as IPV4 and/or IPV6 firewall and router. The vast amount of additional packages available in conjunction with MPL support allows you to create a solution for every routing or firewall project.
Most of the configuration of the firmware installed can be done using a web based interface. For more specialized requirements, a console based configuration utility is available. All configuration is stored on the device in a human friendly text format and can be modified using a text editor, too.

Functions and protocols:
  • TCP/IP V4 and V6, IPsec
  • QoS (Quality Of Service) capable
  • SIIT(IPV4-over-IPV6 translation)
  • Miredo/Teredo (IPV6 over IPV4 tunneling)
  • PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol)
  • Network address translation
  • Multi WAN Setup (failover and load balancing)
  • DHCP Server for IPV4 and IPV6
  • DNS server/forwarder
  • Support for dynamic DNS providers
  • OpenVPN support
  • OpenConnect client support
  • Firewall based on linux iptables
  • SSH and telnet device access
  • Snort (lightweight intrusion detection)
  • Routing daemons (OSPF, RIP, BGP, ...)
Further functionality can be installed using a package repository that contains more then 2000 precompiled applications ready to install. A software development kit (SDK), allowing to implement customer specific applications, is available as well.
