Rugged communications for harsh environments

Designed for and put to the test under the harshest environments, RUGGEDCOM switches meet and exceed recognized industry standards for performance in mission-critical applications.
RST2228 & RST2228P

A powerful duo

Providing a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference, heavy electrical surges, extreme temperatures and humidity – the two RST2228 family switches are ideal for reliable operation in mission critical applications.

Rugged communications for the digital substation

RUGGEDCOM RST2228 and RUGGEDCOM RST2228P are field modular 19” Layer 2 rack switches with 10 Gbit/s uplinks, support for IEEE 1588, and optional Power-over-Ethernet.


The front-loading, field-replaceable module design enhances the maintainability and upgradability of the switches as it allows modules to be changed without removing the chassis from the rack.


This unique design also makes the switches future proof as it can be initially deployed with Gigabit uplink SFPs and 100 Mbps LAN ports and later upgraded to 10 Gigabit uplinks and Gigabit LAN ports as your data communication needs increase.
