Luxul has introduced three new additions to its portfolio of managed L2/L3 Gigabit switches: the 48 PoE+ SW-510-48P-F; 24 PoE+ SW-610-24P-R; and 48 PoE+ SW-610-48P-F. Designed for large residential and commercial networks, the units are packed with features for simple network expansion and management, while offering high performance with fast switching capacities of 104Gbps, 128Gbps, and 176Gbps, respectively.
To accommodate the largest of networks, the SW-510-48P-F is outfitted with four SFP 1Gb ports and can be aggregated for a combined upload throughput of 4Gb, which enables integrators to connect to additional switches via an Ethernet cable or a fiber-optic cable when using SFP modules (sold separately). For ultra-fast interconnection with additional switches, the SW-610-48P-F and SW-610-24P-R feature four 10Gb SFP+ ports, each of which can be used alone or aggregated together for up to 40Gbps of throughput.
In addition, the switches' PoE+ ports are perfect for expanding networks utilizing PoE-enabled devices such as control systems touchpanels, POS systems, phone systems, IP cameras, wireless access points, and AV-over-IP components. These three switches all have a unified management platform for configuration. The SW-510-48P-F and SW-610-48P-F feature front-facing ports and a total power budget of 740W, while the SW-610-24P-R offers rear-facing ports and a power budget of 370W.
All three rack-mountable switches combine QoS and VLAN support with a simple-to-use, unified management interface for administering up to 16 switches. Variable-speed fans deliver quiet operation, while integrated, free-of-charge Luxul ProWatch cloud management supports remote monitoring and management.
"With their SFP and ultra-fast SFP+ ports — in addition to ample PoE budgets — our latest Gigabit switches allow integrators to tackle the largest of managed networks, such as AV-over-IP systems, with ease," said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Legrand | AV – Residential CI. "With powerful management tools and blazing-fast switching and uplink speeds, the units make it simple for integrators to meet their customers' high expectations for system performance."
