CRISP Technologies has launched a new Moxa gigabit Ethernet switch that has all the features needed for industrial Ethernet applications. EDS-518A is a new generation Ethernet switch that meets the European Union's RoHS Standards.
EDS-518A is a standalone 18-port managed Ethernet switch that provides 2 combo gigabit ports with built-in RJ45 or SFP ports for gigabit optic communication.
The gigabit Ethernet Redundant Turbo Ring (recovery time <300ms) increases the reliability and speed of the network backbone.
EDS-518A also supports intelligent network management functions, including QoS, IGMP Snooping/GMRP, VLAN, Port Trunking, SNMP V1/V2c/V3, IEEE 802.1X, and https/SSL.
EDS-518A comes equipped with gigabit Turbo Ring capability that gives system maintainers a convenient means of setting up a versatile yet stable gigabit Ethernet network.
In addition, Quality of Service (QoS) provides a traffic prioritisation capability to ensure that important data is delivered consistently and predictably, and EDS-518A supports IEEE802.1D-1998 DMRP and IGMP Snooping to reduce the amount of traffic on the Ethernet LAN.
EDS-518A supports VLAN technology, which can be used to segment a network without being restricted by physical connections and IEEE802.3ad (LACP) provides flexible network connections and a redundant path for critical devices.
SNMP V1/V2c/V3 provides different levels of management and RMON (Remote Network Monitoring) allows various network agents and console systems to exchange network monitoring data. In addition, IEEE802.1X and https/SSL are available to enhance network security.
Key features include:
* 2 gigabit plus 16 fast Ethernet ports for copper and fibre
* Gigabit Turbo Ring (recovery time < 300ms), RSTP/STP (IEEE802.1W/D) for Ethernet redundancy
* QoS, IGMP snooping/GMRP, VLAN, LACP, SNMP V1/V2c/V3, RMON supported
* Rate Limiting for bandwidth management, and broadcast storm protection
* IEEE802.1X and https/SSL to enhance network security.
