NEW version: Hirschmann Operating System (HiOS) V9.0

The HiOS software increases the power and performance of its Industrial Ethernet switches. HiOS software supports various security mechanisms, comprehensive management and diagnostic methods, precise time synchronization and redundancy protocols.

Seamlessly manage and secure modern industrial networks
HiOS enables seamless integration into industrial control systems by meeting automation network requirements, supporting multiple communication protocols and leveraging TimeSensitive Networking (TSN) technology.

Operating System (HiOS) V9.0 – Industrial Ethernet switches
The new version HiOS V9.0 offers a new responsive GUI for use with desktops, tablets, and phones. In addition, QinQ is available for GRS106, GRS1040, MSP40 and OS3.

HiOS is designed for use in industrial applications, providing customers with the information they need to supervise network infrastructure and resolve network problems quickly. It provides a communication bridge between all levels of the automation architecture, from embedded components on the factory floor to the enterprise.

For time-critical applications, HiOS enables manufacturers to run TSN protocols on offthe-shelf industrial Ethernet BOBCAT switches. With no added cost or components, network administrators can use these switches to transmit data from different applications on the same network.

HiOS runs on the following switch families: DRAGON MACH, GREYHOUND, OCTOPUS, MSP, RSP, RSPL/RSPS/RSPE, BRS, RED, RDD, EES, and EESX.


HiOS was developed specifically to meet the requirements of industrial networks. Examples include:

HiOS is designed with an intuitive graphical user interface and familiar command line interface, appealing to both automation engineers and IT specialists. Effortless configuration ensures rapid network deployment at minimum cost.

HiOS provides a wealth of security functionalities, including various user access levels, port security and advanced authentication, Denial of Service prevention, permanent audit trails, and more.

Additionally, HiOS offers TSN capabilities, enabling both deterministic and standard Ethernet data transmission on the same network. HiOS also features an embedded OPC UA server, providing a brand-agnostic, seamless and futureproof solution as industrial automation moves towards Industry 4.0.
