TropOS 1420 outdoor mesh edge node

Tropos 1420 wireless mesh edge nodes enable cost-effective, secure IP communications for utility, mining, oil and gas, and industrial operations.  Edge nodes enable customers to monitor and control field automation endpoints such as intelligent electrical devices, industrial process controllers, and SCADA devices. Using the automatic interference avoidance capabilities of Tropos Mesh technology, they provide superior reliability by accessing up to 653 MHz of RF spectrum. Tropos 1420 edge nodes use 802.11a/b/g/n wireless standards to deliver 600 Mbps total wireless data rate, 300 Mbps at 2.4 GHz, and another 300 Mbps at 5 GHz.

Industrial companies increasingly depend on wireless communication networks to monitor and control thousands of automation devices in the field. These networks must support diverse applications such as automated metering infrastructure and distribution automation for utilities; telemetry and stockyard management systems for mining; wellhead monitoring and logging for oil and gas; traffic signal management and video monitoring for transportation and smart cities; process control for refining and chemicals; and SCADA for a variety of industries.

Historically, utilities and industrial companies have often used proprietary low-speed wireless communication devices with little network security. The Tropos 1420 provides a cost-effective way for utilities and industrial companies to implement high-speed communication networks with advanced standards-based security features.

Each Tropos 1420 implements a multi-layer, multi-application security model that provides defense-in-depth.  Traffic from multiple applications and user groups to be segregated on separate virtual local area networks (VLANs) each with their own quality of service policy and security. The Tropos 1420 employs RADIUS, 802.1x, and 802.11i authentication, AES encryption, and HTTPS-based remote access to secure field area networks from unauthorized devices, users, and snooping. It supports serial and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity as well as DNP3, IEC 61850 and Modbus, to provide future-ready operation without the need to rip-and-replace legacy automation devices. In addition, the product family’s operating software provides the technical controls required to support NERC CIP v5 compliance.

The Tropos 1420 enables cost-effective, secure IP communications for utility, oil and gas, mining, and industrial applications. Download the Tropos 1420 datasheet for additional information.
