Teleprotection over IP/MPLS

Description

VCL-TP, Teleprotection over IP/MPLS – 10/100BaseT (Electrical) or 100BaseFX (Optical) Ethernet Interface incorporates the same level of “reliability” and “dependability” that the users have come to expect of the C37.94 based communication interface. Additionally, the VCL-TP, Teleprotection over IP / MPLS Equipment provides un-paralleled security, speed as well as all the advantages of operating in a “Digital Sub-station” environment.

Available with:

  • 10/100BaseT (Electrical) Interface to provide Teleprotection over IP/MPLS link.
  • 100BaseFX (Optical) Ethernet Interface to provide Teleprotection over IP/MPLS link.
