Higher network availability, with monitoring via smartphone or tablet.

HiMobile app makes it possible for immediate response to error messages by Network Administrators using smartphones. HiMobile allows access to status information about Hirschmann network devices from almost any location.

HiMobileTablets may also be used; however, its operation on smartphones is especially convenient. A specially formatted QR code can be scanned to refer to a device’s IP address –no need to worry about typing errors – and you can view the status information immediately on the display. Network devices can also be accessed very quickly via product lists. Versions of HiMobile are available for mobile devices running on Apple, Android or Windows Phone operating systems.

HiMobile is one of the first apps in the world to enable monitoring of industrial network devices without a Personal Computer (PC). All that is required is a smartphone or tablet and network access, whether it is via Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), Ethernet or a 3rd Generation (3G) mobile connection. Our Industrial HiVision network management software acts as the server and HiMobile as the client. You can protect access to the server by password. Read more

The latest version of Hirschmann Industrial HiVision network management software configures multiple firewalls simultaneously and offers improved module functionalities.

HiVision_Web-Pic.jpgNew Industrial HiVision 5.1 offers effective device management for manufacturer-specific applications and generic open network management platforms
Increasing network availability

Version 5.1 of Industrial HiVision is designed to configure and supervise networks of Hirschmann and/or any SNMP-capable devices while increasing network availability by providing a visual status of the network topology. A key benefit of the new version is that it offers faster and easier configuration of firewalls.

  • Greater flexibility: multiple firewalls can be configured simultaneously, even if those firewalls are not supporting identical rule sets.
  • Faster and reliable configuration of multiple BATs: through MultiConfig™ for BAT family devices
  • Maximized license period for the Annual Maintenance Plan: the validity period of the plan now starts from the date first used, not the date of purchase

Maximum network availability and all-round protection against network attacks
Unique redundancy and security functions in the new Hirschmann operating system (HiOS) 3.0 bring improved data security and the highest level of network availability, while ensuring cost-effective production processes. HiOS extends the range of potential applications for industrial Ethernet switches from Hirschmann. This is particularly relevant to the energy sector, through use of an IEC61850 server and MMRP support by integrating switches seamlessly into a variety of sector-related applications. Many other industries can also benefit from an operating system that completely redefines the performance of automation networks.


  • pecially developed with the requirements of automation networks in mind, HiOS 3.0 supports the RSP, RSPL, RSPS and EES families of Hirschmann switches, as well as the modular MSP systems. This means that these switches are ideally suited for applications that demand maximum network availability, typically found in automobile manufacturing, transportation and energy sectors.

    Not only does HiOS 3.0 bring the largest range of standard functions in the automation area, it also has a number of special features. These include support for the Multiple MAC Registration Protocol (MMRP), which runs on top of the Security Layer and registers group MAC addresses (e.g. for Multicast) on multiple switches. In the energy sector, an IEC61850 server can be used to transfer diagnostic information directly to control systems, for example. This means that applications such as protection devices can utilize Hirschmann switches as integral components.

    The redundancy methods provided by HiOS 3.0 — parallel redundancy protocol (PRP) and high-availability seamless redundancy (HSR) — have switching times of 0 ms to ensure uninterrupted data communication. This operating system also supports link aggregation and allows combinations of multiple rings, which insures fast network redundancy while meeting relevant standards.

    Supported security mechanisms include authentication, RADIUS, role-based access, port security, SSHv2, HTTPS, SFTP and ACL. Comprehensive management and diagnostic facilities, plus precise synchronization compliant with IEEE 1588v2, are further distinctive features found in HiOS 3.0 In short, this operating system turns Hirschmann switches into the most powerful industrial Ethernet devices the market has to offer.

    More detailed information on our new HiOS 3.0 operating system – running on the RSP, RSPL, RSPS and EES families of switches plus the modular MSP systems – can be found here:

Belden offers wireless access points with a new modular design concept – the new OpenBAT family from Hirschmann™.


Individually configurable via the Internet, the robust access points in the new OpenBAT family from Hirschmann guarantee stable WLAN connections – even in the most demanding industrial applications. These devices can be used to implement wireless communication solutions that were previously solely the domain of cable-based networks typically found in rail transport, electricity supply or mechanical engineering. With Clear Space® technology inside, ESD protection and the option of integrated high-voltage power supply, the OpenBAT family sets new standards in lifetime operational effectiveness – leading to significant reductions in total cost of ownership.
