1 1 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin MultiLink Hardened Ethernet Communication Switches Ethernet Communication Solutions for the Industrial Automation, Power Utility and Transportation Markets

2 2 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin As the functionality of devices found in substations and industrial facilities grows, and with the emergence of standards such as IEC 61850, the desire and need to network your devices with reliable communications grows as well. Networking your devices will provide: Access to your devices from anywhere in within or outside your facility The ability for devices to communicate directly with each other (Peer-to-Peer) Simplified System troubleshooting Improved visibility and management of your assets Why network your devices?

3 3 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Industrial Facilities Utility StationsTraffic Control Systems MultiLink is a family of Ethernet Switches that are designed specifically for use in: Industrial Facilities Substations Traffic Control Markets Designed for Harsh Environments

4 4 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Strict Industrial Network Requirements These unique markets have special requirements not usually found in traditional communication equipment such as: Ability to Withstand Harsh Environments High Degree of Security High Reliability Modularity - Ability to communicate with many different devices and types of communication ports Ease of configuration

5 5 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Multilink Ethernet Switches are designed and tested to meet the same requirements to withstand harsh environments as all of our relays and meters. IEC Standards for reliability of communication networks and systems in Substations IEEE Standards for the design of communication network equipment to be used in substations and industrial sites NEBS Level3 - Stringent test level required for high reliability in harsh environments and mission critical applications (Competitive Local Exchange Carriers) ETSI Certified - European Telecommunications Standards Institute, which establishes the telecommunications standards in Europe NEMA TS2 - Stipulates the environmental requirements for traffic control equipment. -40° C to +85° C - Tested to the IEC & IEC standards without the use of fans IP 40 Rated - Specifies the extent to which the equipment is protected against foreign particles and the degree that persons are protected from enclosed hazards Certified to be used in Harsh Environments

6 6 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin MultiLink Switches provides the highest degree of network security available. All network management functions are protected against unauthorized access through: SNMPv3- Provides encrypted authentication and access security for network management functions Secure Web Management - SSL (Secure Socket Layer) - Same technology used by financial institutions ensures secure access to switch management via the web Remote Access Security- Limits access to SNMP via the web and Telnet to designated IP addresses Password Security- Multi-level CLI log-in enforced to ensure authorized access Highest Degree of Management Security

7 7 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Highest Degree of Network Security User Access Security Features include: Port Security- Restricts port traffic to only authenticated MAC addresses RADIUS - Provides port based access control authentication of users through a controlled database. Commonly used in wireless networks TACACS+ - Provides access control of central servers through authentication and authorization SMTP alerts - Alarms Trigger notifications generated by a security violation MultiLink Switches security ensures that only authorized users gain access to the network through the switch

8 8 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Highly Reliable Networks with Fast Fault Recovery Redundancy in both Ring and Mesh network architectures Fast fault recovery times using industry standard RSTP (IEEE 802.1w) Link-Loss-Alert allows for seamless detecting of fiber link loss to re-route transmission to a redundant path Enhanced diagnostics for fast, efficient, and proactive troubleshooting of network problems MultiLink Switches provide high network reliability and availability through:

9 9 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Simple Network Management MultiLink Switches provide full management capabilities through the powerful and simple to use Graphical User Interface. With this interface you will be able to manage: Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN)- Configure and Create Virtual Local Area Networks to handle bandwidth more efficiently and provide additional security Quality of Service (QoS)- Provide the ability to prioritize traffic Port Mirroring - Monitor all traffic on any Ethernet port to facilitate troubleshooting Identify traffic patterns - Monitor port traffic to identify utilization of network traffic Event Log - Identify occurrences of ports going down or illegal switch access attempts

10 10 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Easily identify the status of all communication ports Monitor the status of each of the communication ports over the Ethernet network in Real-Time Simple Network Management

11 11 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Simplified Switch Setup All network communication settings can be configured in one easy step Simple Network Management

12 12 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Programmable Alarm Contact Warnings Program which types of errors and warnings will trigger the external Alarm Contact Simple Network Management

13 13 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Easy to understand Ethernet Traffic Statistics Monitor all of the different types of network traffic passing through each communication port Simple Network Management

14 14 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Informative Event Logs View the Switch Event Log that indicates Port Availability, Authorized and Unauthorized Access attempts and Switch Configuration Changes Simple Network Management

15 15 GE Consumer & Industrial Multilin Easy VLAN Configuration Create VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks) to help to optimize Bandwidth and Network Efficiency Simple Network Management
