Utilities are struggling to merge information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) applications and management without disrupting the cybersecurity, reliability, and performance of mission-critical protection and control applications.
SEL and Juniper Networks, trusted names in the converging realms of OT and IT, are developing a solution that allows true end-to-end network visibility, cybersecurity management, and control while maintaining the microsecond precision of critical control applications.
The joint SEL-Juniper solution combines components from each company’s respective areas of expertise. The substation-hardened and reliable SEL-2740S Software-Defined Network Switch, SEL-5056 Software-Defined Network Flow Controller, and SEL ICON Integrated Communications Optical Network integrate with Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers and advanced software applications to support circuit orchestration and network monitoring.
Thanks to the efforts of SEL and Juniper, utilities have a more integrated management platform for converged networks. Working together, SEL and Juniper have developed a true end-to-end unified circuit orchestration platform that enables more efficient and secure management of IT/OT networks.
The SEL-Juniper solution will also integrate the Dragos Platform for intelligence-driven monitoring and rapid response to threat detection. Click for more details.
