AMG Systems (AMG) has launched its Commercial Layer 2+ 10Gb Managed Ethernet switch series which aims to provide the benefits of high performance and low latency Ethernet to businesses of all sizes. The solution is said to offer an effective means of strengthening network connectivity for heavy duty applications such as video.
These 10GB Managed Ethernet switches use redundant ring technology, as well as advanced Vlan features. IGMPv1-3 support offers greater control of multicast traffic across the network.
Additionally, the AMG switches include a stacking feature that allows multiple switches to operate as a single unit, enabling an entire switch stack to be managed as a single entity within one IP address. It can include up to 16 switches, or 384-gigabit ports plus 32 10Gb ports.
The products in AMG's switch range have 8, 24 or 48-gigabit ports, with or without Power over Ethernet support, and 1/10Gb SFP+ uplink ports.
Ian Creary AMG's Sales and Technical Support Manager, said: “All business sectors are seeing a growing demand for bandwidth to support high-end applications, including the recording and streaming of high-resolution video data, such as in surveillance systems. But thankfully 10-Gigabit solutions are no longer a platform that only the largest enterprises can afford. The increasing adoption of 10Gb copper and fibre NIC adapters by servers, storage vendors and others has made the price of a 10Gb solution more attractive than ever before.”
“Managed 10Gb switches are an ideal solution for high performance network aggregations to, for example, interconnect two or more remote locations over high-throughput copper and fibre ports. They allow our users to build a unified, highly resilient switching system,” Creary added.
