What’s one thing about MSP and Eagle 30 that few know?
MSP has the most powerful hardware design in the Hirschmann portfolio with high range of routing capabilities and high end security features.
Eagle 30 is a multiport firewall with up to 6 GB and FE ports and is now equipped with SHDSL interfaces. This makes it the most unique firewall available in the industrial market.
How does the MSP/Eagle 30 switch help solve customer pain points?
MSP provides a highly flexible modular design with Layer 3 routing capabilities. This allows the customer to route between two different networks using an industrial ruggedized switch which can be placed directly near the operation floor.
Eagle 30 on the other hand allows the customer to protect multiple networks using only one physical device with multiple ports.
