About HiOS

Hirschmann Operating System – aka HiOS – is a single system that runs on a range of hardware, from DIN rail edge switches to backbone routers, and enables consistent functionality in an ideal user interface. HiOS supports office and industrial protocols, helping to connect IT and OT networks. HiOS is future-proof, thanks to free software updates and a brand-agnostic, built-in OPC UA server that enables communication between all levels of automation. Other features include:

  • Enhanced security: Build a secure network foundation with HiOS’ comprehensive functionality

  • Redundancy: HiOS features multiple technologies to match industrial network topologies, including MRP, MSTP, PRP, HSR, DLR, and VRRP

  • Real-time connectivity: HiOS features free, embedded, and easily set-up TSN functionality – no special hardware or software required.

Test-drive HiOS!
