Moxa 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 < 300 ms) increases the reliability and speed of the network backbone.
The 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.
The EDS-518A also supports IEEE802.1D-1998 GMRP and IGMP Snooping to reduce the amount of traffic on the Ethernet LAN. EDS-518A supports VLAN technology, which can be used to segment the network without being restricted by physical connections, and IEEE802.3ad (LACP) which 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.
The entire range of Moxa industrial hardware is available from Paqworks Industrial Data communications.
