Transition Networks, Inc. has introduced its 48-port Managed Gigabit PoE+ Switch, which offers 176 Gbps switching capacity and is billed as ideal for use in networks that need extensive connectivity for high-resolution IP cameras, wireless access points or VoIP phones. The switch will be on display at the 2020 BICSI Winter Conference in Tampa, FL, from February 9-13. Transition Networks is exhibiting in booth #733.
Per a statement from the manufacturer: "In a single rack unit, the switch (SM48TAT4XA-RP) provides (48) 10/100/1000 copper ports and (4) dual-speed 1G/10G SFP+ slots and features a redundant, hot swappable power supply. When equipped with dual power supplies, the switch can provide a total of 1640 Watts of power for 30 Watts to all 48 ports simultaneously.
For lower power or lower port requirements, the switch can be used with a single power supply to provide up to 820 Watts of power, delivering 15.4 Watts of power on all 48 ports simultaneously or 30 Watts per port on 27 ports simultaneously.
The switch is compliant with IEEE 802.3at PoE+ and IEEE 802.3af PoE and has an operating temperature of 0 – 50°C. The dual power supplies also support load-sharing mode to ensure maximum uptime and minimal maintenance."
Embedded into the switch is Transition Networks' Device Management System (DMS) software, which enables graphical monitoring, as well as traffic monitoring and troubleshooting for reduced downtime, and easier management and maintenance of connected devices.
The switch also features an Auto Power Reset (APR) feature to automatically restart any or all attached devices in case of device freeze-ups or other service interruptions; per-port DHCP capability ensures attached devices receive the same IP address.
"High-resolution IP security camera installations are growing significantly, and there's an emerging need for higher density network infrastructure," notes GlenNiece Kutsch, senior product manager at Transition Networks. "The 48-Port Managed Gigabit PoE+ Switch is ideal for these bandwidth and power intensive applications. In addition to powering these high bandwidth applications, the DMS and APR features enable cost savings and simplified management of the devices."
