WeOS Operating System / WeConfig

WeOS version 4.20.0 firmware is available for the Falcon, Lynx, Red Fox, Viper and Wolverine through their respective web pages.

WeOS 4.20.0 is now available for download. In this release you will find news and updates relating to security updates. New Features include:

  • SSL-VPN capacity – the limit for number of SSL-VPN tunnels is now configurable
  • Possibility to bind SSL-VPN clients to a specific IP address
  • Horseshoe topology – FRNT together with ring coupling can now be used in applications where it is not feasible to close the sub-ring, i.e. find a divergent way back

Westermo delivers resilient network solutions through its WeOS operating system, which is at the heart of their range of robust hardware platforms. WeOS provides an extensive suite of IP networking standards allowing for resilient and flexible networks to be created. Fast recovery times and highly reliable solutions can be achieved even in very complex networks. WeOS also provides multiple layers of security to provide protection against cyber-attacks at the network edge.

Made Easy is at the core of the WeOS development, which is why Westermo ensures that their intuitive command-line interface is logical and their web interface is simple to use.

WeOS is a Westermo developed layer 2 and layer 3 switching solution that is used on all future hardware solutions as well as in their current range of products. This will protect your investment by ensuring future availability of fully compatible solutions as well as it will solve many complex networking issues.

WeOS is the core of Westermo's latest range of Ethernet hardware allowing complex multimedia ring networks, routing solutions and network security.

With WeOS, Westermo delivers unique network security solutions utilizing stateful inspection firewall and IEEE 802.1x, remote secure access can be provided using encrypted VPN tunnels.

Westermo sees network security as a top priority within critical infrastructure solutions. Versions of WeOS firmware are ready to be downloaded from ESI's website.

Great focus has gone into ease of use. A web screen makes for simple configuration of many functions while a command line interface allows for fine tuning. Once you are familiar with one WeOS product that knowledge can be readily applied to other solutions.

With Westermo's many years of experience of industrial applications they have developed many unique functions into their platform allowing them to provide integration paths for legacy equipment as well as network security. Our WeOS white paper demonstrates how many of these functions can be set up.

More information pertaining to the most current version of WeOS can be found through the Westermo Management Guide.

WeConfig - Network Configuration Management Tool
WeConfig is a Network Configuration Management (NCM) tool that simplifies both the initial installation of a network and the ongoing maintenance once commissioned. This simplification is of high value to both commissioning engineers as well as network maintenance engineers as networks continue to expand.

This tool has been developed to provide a simple method of network configuration of single or multiple Westermo devices. Once installed on a PC the software scans the network for devices. Once the scan is complete a list of devices as well as a mini topology map is displayed. Now basic configuration information like IP addresses can be quickly assigned and further configuration easily facilitated by accessing device web or CLI configuration windows.

WeConfig is a simple monitoring and diagnostics tool in addition to its configuration capabilities. Westermo has comprehensive network resilience technology including FRNT, RSTP, OPSF, LACP, RIP and VRRP within WeOS which ensure a network can remain fully functional even in the event of media failure. To achieve resilience WeOS devices automatically reconfigure themselves so the processes running on the network are unaffected. What this means however is that the user may be unware that a failure has occurred. WeConfig can now graphically display a failed link is as well as record the time of the event.

Additionally to an SNMP trap logging function statistical data stored in WeOS devices can now also be easily displayed on screen to assist with any resulting problem diagnosis. Information including port link status, data-rate, bytes, errors, broadcast, multicast and unicast counters are displayed in a simple tabular format.

Project files functionality is also available. Meaning, an engineer can maintain a number of different networks and store all the associated backup files and topology information. These files can be used to allow a fast and easy replacement and reconfiguration of a damaged switch in the field.  A new device can be installed in the network and will automatically be discovered by WeConfig. The configuration file of the old unit can simply be restored from the project file and the network is repaired.

Once devices are configured and the network commissioned a backup of all the device configuration files can be easily made and stored. In the event that a switch or router needs to be replaced in service a rapid download of the saved configuration file results in a fast network repair. If a firmware upgrade is available for the network devices then a system-wide upgrade can be managed by WeConfig. Network topology can be viewed in WeConfig and edited to more clearly show the interconnection of resilient network structures. Device properties can be easily read and additional equipment added rapidly and professionally.
