The SEL ICON is a wide-area-networking multiplexer optimized for industrial and utility applications. You can configure the ICON to operate as a SONET or Ethernet multiplexer, enabling the platform to address the following network usage cases:
ICON virtual synchronous networking (VSN) preserves the performance characteristics of time-division multiplexing (TDM) when converting to Ethernet as a transport protocol.
By combining TDM and Ethernet transport options with a comprehensive range of data interfaces, the ICON makes it easy to migrate legacy network technologies to a converged IT/OT packet-based solution. The ICON interoperates with Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) or Carrier Ethernet-based core networks to provide a hardened OT edge multiplexer for mission-critical applications.
