The SbC Firewall/Router connects nonsecure BACnet/IP network segments to secure BACnet/SC networks without compromising performance, reliability or security.
SbC Firewall/Routers are fully compliant BACnet network layer routers, with additional capabilities to monitor and enforce policy on the BACnet traffic passing between network segments.
BENEFITSBenefits of Cimetrics BACnet/SC to BACnet/IP Firewall/Router beyond BACnet network connectivity:
Cimetrics BACnet/SC to BACnet/IP Firewall/Routers routes BACnet packets (and only BACnet packets) between BACnet/SC and BACnet/IP networks. A Secured by Cimetrics Appliance (SbC4000) monitors the network and the Firewall/Routers to detect and diagnose network and security issues. A typical deployment scenario is shown below, where SbC Firewall/Routers monitor and enforce policy on BACnet messages flowing between /Sc and /IP network segments.
