Networking and applications

Electric power

Electric power deployment scenario

The AR550 supports the SEP protocol to ensure highly reliable network communication by implementing fast protection switching. With 28 Ethernet interfaces, the AR550 provides access to a large number of densely deployed electric terminals. It complies with IEEE1613 and IEC61850-3 substation environment standards and can be used in power distribution automation and automatic substation access scenarios, boosting digital and smart development of the electric power industry.

Transportation

Transportation deployment scenaio

In addition to offering reliable, instant, and secure communication, the AR550 meets electromagnetic interference and anti-vibration requirements defined by EN50155 standards of the transportation industry. The AR550 therefore can be used to construct the smart transportation system for traffic and vehicle control, such as express way monitoring, vehicle-mounted Passenger Information System (PIS), and vehicle-ground communication. After the AR550 is installed, services can be deployed using the USB drive, which is suitable for scenarios where there are many sparsely distributed stations.

Video backhaul

Video backhaul deployment scenario

Video surveillance is popular in various industries. Different access conditions pose higher requirements on the installation space and mode, operating temperature and humidity of video backhaul devices. The AR550 uses a compact design and has a small size. It can be installed on guide rails and supports a wide operating temperature, meeting outdoor video backhauling requirements in harsh environments.

Ethernet access in other industries or harsh environments

The industrial Ethernet is one major component of the industrial control field. Huawei AR550 adopts an industrial design and integrates abundant features, such as routing and IPSec VPN. It can be widely used for industrial Ethernet access in harsh environments, such as high temperature, low temperature, and strong electromagnetic interference. Additionally, it provides end-to-end security guarantee for production data transmission.
