Moxa is pleased to announce that its EDS-518E and EDS-G205-1GTXSFP DIN-rail Ethernet switches have received marine certifications including DNV.GL, LR, ABS, and NKK, which make them suitable for deployment around the world. These certifications further confirm the industrial ruggedness of Moxa’s products and provide their customers with a wider selection of switches for their marine applications.
With these new additions to their marine portfolio, Moxa is able to address demands within the marine industry for higher bandwidth, higher port-density, and cybersecurity. Moxa’s EDS-G205-1GTXSFP full Gigabit unmanaged switch is an economical solution for high-bandwidth applications, while the EDS-518E 14+4G-port Gigabit switch provides not just high-bandwidth capabilities, but also multiple ports and security enhancements, such as MAC address filtering, RADIUS authentication, and other security features that reference the IEC-62443 standard.

Therefore, the industry now requires solutions that include asset management, optimized decision support, remote operation, and even autonomous ship operations. In view of this, Moxa provides their marine customers with industrial-grade networking expertise that allow them to meet these industry requirements," said Jack Lin, Product Manager of Moxa Networking.
