Routing For Rugged Environments

Cisco 2000 Series Connected Grid Routers

The Cisco 2000 Series Connected Grid Router is designed specifically for the harsh, rugged environments often found in the energy and utility industries.

Built to help ensure a highly secure, reliable, and scalable infrastructure, the Cisco 2000 Series provides industry-leading routing capabilities to support the Smart Grid and other energy delivery communications needs.

Enhanced Security and Reliability

The Cisco 2010 Connected Grid Router, the first in the Cisco 2000 Series, is an ideal platform to support the communications requirements of the energy delivery infrastructure across the generation, transmission, and distribution sectors. This product has been extensively tested and is KEMA-certified to meet challenging substation compliance standards, including IEEE 1613 and IEC 61850-3.

Cisco IOS Software delivers the benefits of integrated security for NERC/CIP compliance, quality of service, and network management to help ensure integrity and priority of operational data communications.
