HSR/PRP switch IP Core presented at CIGRE 2012 International Exhibition – Paris (France) August 2012-

SoC-e has presented at CIGRE its powerful HSR/PRP switch IP Core. This IP implements the new Reliable Ethernet protocols approved in IEC 62439-3 (IEC 61850 for Electric Substations Automation). Thanks to SoC-e proprietary switching technology, this IP offers the extremely fast switching time between Ethernet redundant ports. During CIGRE exhibition, a live set-up for HSR and PRP networks was set at UCA Booth. SoC-e technology was attached at both HSR and PRP networks. Only 6 companies worldwide were allowed to…

SoC-e Participated HSR/PRP Interoperability Testing in Winterthur in June 2012

Altogether 14 companies participated in IEC 62439-3 Ed. 2.0 (HSR and PRP) interoperability testing in Winterthur during June 4th-22th 2012. The companies were involved in a testing session where the main focus was interoperability of the different implementations of the new IEC 62439-3 Ethernet redundancy protocols. SoC-e tested its IPs using ad-hoc test equipment, and also SoC-e customers tested their equipments running SoC-e IPs. The photo shows SoC-e test equipment attached to HSR ring in Winterthur. The success in these…
