Industrial Routers Overview
Case Communications use Open Source Linux and purpose built hardware to build their Industrial products. This allows Case to develop products with the highest levels of functionality at the best price, as the software can be moved from one platform to another.
As the number of people with Linux skills grow so does the pool of talented people who can provide support, to Case Communications customers, allowing market forces to work on behalf of customers not manufacturers.
This makes Linux the obvious choice for both Case and their customers.

Industrial Ethernet Switches
Case Communications Industrial Ethernet Switches are designed to be used for mission critical applications working in harsh conditions. Industrial switches do not use fans and power is generally from a low voltage DC source, often via batteries and solar panels. Typically these switches run resilient ring technology (such as Case Communications X-Ring) with very rapid self healing times.

Industrial Ethernet Extenders
(EFM) refers to using one of the Ethernet family of computer network protocols between a telecommunications company and a customer's premises. From the customer's point of view it is their "first" mile, although from the access network's point of view it is known as the "last mile". A working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) produced the standards known as IEEE 802.3ah-2004, which were later included in the overall standard IEEE 802.3-2008. Although it is often used for businesses, it can also be known as Ethernet to the Home (ETTH).

Industrial Media Converters
Case Communications media converters are Industrial grade converters operating from -40C to +75C, and allowing 1 or 2 Copper ports to operate at rates up to 1Gbps over Fibre. The Fibre ports are provided by SFP’s (Short Form Pluggables) meaning the converters can be used over any kind of fibre and over any distance.
Link Loss Forwarding ensures high availability by disabling both bridged interfaces if one interface fails. Any failure along the signal link is passed through and can be seen by attached devices.

Voice over IP
Voice over Internet Protocol (Voice over IP, VoIP and IP telephony) is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet. The terms Internet telephony, broadband telephony, and broadband phone service specifically refer to the provisioning of communications services (voice, fax, SMS, voice-messaging) over the public Internet, rather than via the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
Case Communications VoiP products provide both PBX facilities and routing, along with a number of advanced features such as Transporting HDLC and DPNSS Over IP, as well as converting between various legacy systems, allowing customers to keep their existing telephony systems and operate over an IP Network.

Industrial DiN Rail Fibre Splice & Patch Panel
The Industrial DIN Rail Splice & Patch Panel is ideally suited to installations where space is at a premium. In addition to providing a fibre termination and patching point, the unit can also be used as a simple through Splicing enclosure or Spur unit, or a combination of these.

Industrial Short Form Pluggables
The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. The form factor and electrical interface are specified by a multi-source agreement (MSA) under the auspices of the SFF Committee. It interfaces a network device motherboard (for a switch, router, media converter or similar device) to a fiber optic or copper networking cable. It is a popular industry format jointly developed and supported by many network component vendors.SFP transceivers are designed to support SONET, Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and other communications standards.
WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a family of wireless communication standards based on the IEEE 802.16 set of standards, which provide multiple physical layer (PHY) and Media Access Control (MAC) options.

Network Management System (CaseView)
CaseView is an SNMP-based Network Management System (NMS) that helps you visualise, monitor and pro-actively manage your network. It is a secure distributed NMS that will monitor your entire network infrastructure.CaseView is powered by the industry-standard Castle Rock SNMPc7 System.
