Courtesy: Phoenix ContactPhoenix Contact's RS2005 and RS4004 mGuard variants combine secure routing, VPN, and firewall functions with network switch capabilities in one package. The RS2005 has five unmanaged Ethernet ports, and the RS4004 has four managed ports, along with a "demilitarized zone" (DMZ) port designed to secure multiple networks. The integrated switch is designed to eliminate or reduce the need to install a stand-alone switch. The RS4004 integrates a four-port managed switch, enabling a flexible and cost-effective option for multiport security applications in Ethernet networks. The mGuard with a managed switch can provide port mirroring, multicast filtering, and querier and VLAN support. The DMZ port in the RS4004 is a protected network located between two other networks. Both the secure LAN side and the unsecured WAN side of the network can access this port. However, the firewall that monitors and regulates all of the incoming and outgoing traffic at each transfer point can block access from the WAN side to the LAN or DMZ side and vice-versa. The RS2005 integrates a five-port unmanaged Ethernet switch, with automatic detection of data-transmission speed of 10 or 100 Mbps (RJ45) and auto-crossing function.
