The RUGGEDCOM RSL910 is a compact form factor rugged Ethernet switch with two EoVDSL2 uplinks and two gigabit SFP uplinks providing the flexibility to use copper or optical infrastructure in harsh environments.

The RUGGEDCOM RSL910 comes with 6 Fast Ethernet ports, 2 SFP-Slots supporting Gigabit and Fast Ethernet and 2 EoVDSL2 uplinks.

The RUGGEDCOM RSL910 is a rugged 10-port managed Ethernet switch, supporting Ethernet over VDSL2 (EoVDSL2) and allowing up to 2.9 km LAN segments over telephone-grade cable at up to 85 Mbps with optional SFP slots supporting Gigabit and Fast Ethernet.

With the RUGGEDCOM RSL910 it is possible to reuse existing copper cabling to enable rail and road operators to achieve broadband speeds between equipment cabinets. This is a cost efficient way of converting legacy systems into modern Ethernet-based applications which allow reliable, low latency connectivity to control centers.

The RUGGEDCOM RSL910 combines EoVDSL2 and SFP-slots in the same device for a migration path from legacy 2-wire copper cabling to high speed fiber optic or other advanced
network topologies.

The RUGGEDCOM RSL910 performs well under harsh conditions and is therefore suitable for use in outdoor environments where support for low and/or high temperatures is mandatory. Besides support for harsh environments the device is also approved and certified for use in transportation applications (EN50121-4, EN50121-3, EN 45545-2 and NEMA TS2).
