Cisco 2500 Series Connected Grid Switches (Cisco)

The Cisco 2520 Connected Grid Switch (CGS 2520) is designed for substation networks to meet the harsh environments common in transmission and distribution substations. The CGS 2520 uses Cisco IOS Software, the operating system that powers millions of Cisco switches worldwide.

Primary Features

  • Rugged industrial design and substation compliance: IEC-61850-3 and IEEE 1613 for utility substation environments
  • No fans, no moving parts for maximum reliability
  • Tools for easy deployment, management, and replacement
  • Extensive instrumentation and remote diagnostic capabilities
  • Advanced Cisco IOS Software features such as 802.1x, Layer 2-Layer 4 access control lists, port security, and more
  • Advanced QoS 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
  • Comprehensive network security features based on open standards
  • Field-replaceable components such as power supplies and Small Form-Factor Pluggables (SFPs)
  • Intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) using Cisco Configuration Professional

In addition, the 2520 Connected Grid Switch has these features:

  • REP and Flexlink provide fast reconvergence in ring and hub-and-spoke topologies
  • Smartport templates provide one-touch global and port-level macros to simplify switch deployments

Two Models for Added Flexibility

  • 24-port 10/100TX with dual-purpose gigabit Ethernet uplinks
  • 24 ports of mixed fiber and copper, including 16 fast Ethernet fiber SFP ports and 8 10/100 Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports with dual-purpose gigabit Ethernet uplinks
