In a professional environment, participants receive in-depth knowledge about the MACH and PowerMICE Layer 3 functionality. This includes installation, commissioning, and supervision. Training is part theory and part practice. The necessary knowledge about functions and deployment possibilities of the products are taught in individual theory blocks. Each block is followed by practical exercises, designed to familiarise participants with the devices through first-hand experience.

Ideal for

Product training course designed for system engineers, network designers, trade and paraprofessional support technicians.


Participants will learn in-depth knowledge about the MACH and PowerMICE Layer 3 functionality.


Basic understanding of Ethernet & routing is required, e.g., Industrial Ethernet (CT1), Industrial Networking (CT2) and Industrial Routing (CT3) & product knowledge from the Rail-family (CP1).

Materials supplied

All relevant course materials are included.

Materials to bring

Pen/pencil and notebook
If available, the participant should bring a laptop with Ethernet connection and an operating system CD. Administrator rights are required


Participants will be awarded a Hirschmann Certified Training certificate.

Additional notes

The modular high performance Ethernet switches from the MACH and PowerMICE families are designed specifically for industrial applications: for installation in a control room, or as an office/plant floor gateway. Although industrial Ethernet is essentially the same as the one used in the office environment, the demands are greater, particularly in the area of network resilience. The correct choice of device, together with a high level of technical competence, is therefore an important prerequisite.
