Deploying Integrated and Scalable Ethernet Redundancy with PRP/HSR

Brea, California, June 29, 2015—We are pleased to announce the release of our latest white paper, Deploying Integrated and Scalable Ethernet Redundancy with PRP/HSR, now available for download from Moxa’s website.
In this paper, we examine existing substation topologies and possible integral and scalable methods to achieve efficient redundancy with PRP (parallel redundancy protocol) and HSR (high-availability seamless redundancy). An optimized IEC 61850 PRP/HSR architecture should provide scalable integration for easy modification of functionalities and extension of the substation. Upgrading SANs (single attached nodes) and DANs (dual attached nodes) to a PRP/HSR network will require an efficient and cost effective solution in order to construct a seamless/bumpless communication infrastructure to ensure maximum system availability.
With IEC 61850-compliant devices specifically calibrated for PRP and HSR redundancy, seamless control and monitoring can be achieved by using a cost-effective hybrid network topology. For more information on how to integrate scalable Ethernet redundancy using PRP/HSR, we welcome you to download our latest study: https://www.moxa.com/support/request_catalog_detail.aspx?id=1437
