New Anybus® Switches and Wireless Routers open the door to the wireless infrastructures of the future

HMS Networks now presents a new line of Anybus® Switches and Wireless Routers for next generation
industrial wireless communication. Preparing for the arrival of 5G and the vision of smarter and more flexible
factories, the products combine high capacity and reliability with more mobility and less latency to wireless

Factories are getting increasingly automated and flexible, and true industrial grade mobility can only be
achieved through robust wireless connectivity in all parts of the system. Anybus Layer 2 and 3 Switches and
Wireless Routers address this topic by offering high capacity and low latency communication. With advanced
features for network segmentation and protection, redundancy and data traffic analysis, the Switches and
Wireless Routers enable high grade integration between OT and IT systems, including industrial Ethernet
protocols such as PROFINET and EtherNet/IP.

The new line includes wireless routers for LTE and WLAN which can be used world-wide, independent of
regulatory domains. Upcoming additions will also include 5G-ready cellular routers.

“Our ambition is to not only provide industrial grade networking hardware, but also to be a strategic partner to
our customers in their strive to build secure and resilient industrial networks”, says Emma Sundh, product
manager at HMS Networks.

The Anybus Wireless Routers target industrial applications with high-speed WLAN and LTE connectivity.
Advanced routing functionality allows network segmentation and protection of mission critical data. An
extensive range of redundancy technologies ensures uninterrupted operation. Thanks to a rugged design
and a high industrial temperature span, the products are suitable for a wide variety of industrial applications.

The intelligent Anybus L2 and L3 Switches provide full Gigabit and ultra-high throughput. Multiple
redundancy and cyber security features enable users to build highly reliable and secure networks.
