Ethernet Rail Switches facilitate migration to GigE.

Press Release Summary:

Supporting both gigabit SX and LX or flexible SFP form factor, Husky Series 10-port Managed Ethernet Switches can be remotely configured via web browser, SNMP, Telnet, CLI, or menu-driven management system. X-ring self-recovery mechanism allows switches to self-reconfigure and provides redundant path in network in case any part of network is disrupted or disconnected. IP security function supports 10 IP address accounts to prevent unauthorized access.

Original Press Release:

Make Migration to Gigabit Ethernet Easy by Deploying Ethernet Direct Industrial Managed Gigabit Ethernet Rail Switch

Taipei, Taiwan, 19 December, 2006- Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of Industrial Networking and communication solutions, is pleased to announce a series of 10-port Managed Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Switches to make migration to and deployment of Gigabit Ethernet easy.

Increased use of high bandwidth has created significant demands of Gigabit Ethernet technology, and Ethernet Direct provides product solutions to meet these requirements:
HMG-825 Industrial 8 10/100TX + 2 1000SX (SC, MM 550m) Managed Gigabit switch
HMG-826 Industrial 8 10/100TX + 2 1000LX (SC, SM 10km) Managed Gigabit switch
HMG-828 Industrial 8 10/100TX + 2 100/1000 Mini-GBIC (SFP) Managed Gigabit switch

Ethernet Direct's Industrial Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch is engineered with state of the art design that supports both gigabit SX and LX or flexible SFP form factor to keep your network secured, reliable and a good choice for scalable backbone construction..

Gigabit applications require a switch with good management features. HMG-825, HMG-826 and HMG-828 can be remotely configured by a web browser, SNMP, Telnet, CLI, or a menu-driven management system. The Husky Series Industrial Managed Gigabit Switch comes with the following features & functions:

Input power isolation design for Telecom applications. Hi-Pot 1.5KV passed.
Wide-range redundant power design and power polarity reverse protect
IP-31 case protection, DIN Rail & Wall Mountable Operating temperature: -10 to 70 deg C, Extended versions with -40 to 80 deg C SNMP v1, v2c, v3/WEB/CLI/Telnet Management X-Ring proprietary protocol for high-speed redundancy to Ethernet Network IEEE802.1d Spanning Tree/ IEEE802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree ACL ( Access Control List) IEEE802.1ab LLDP

VLAN: port based VLAN/802.1Q Tag VLAN/GVRP/ Double Tag (Q-in-Q) VLAN IEEE 802.3ad Port Trunk w/LACP Port Security/ IP Security/ Login Security (IEEE 802.1x Authentication/Radius)

QoS: 802.1P Class of Service/ Port Base/Tag Base/ Type of Service IGMP v1, v2, v3 and IGMP query for Multi Media Application, Port Mirroring Provide DHCP Client, DHCP Server, IP Relay and DNS functions

The powerful X-ring self-recovery mechanism allows Husky switches to self-reconfigure and provides a redundant path in the network in case any part of your network is disrupted or disconnected.

To secure your network, Ethernet Direct's Industrial Managed Gigabit Switch is also equipped with the IP security function that supports 10 IP address accounts for system management security to prevent unauthorized access. Advanced management features, such as Dual Homing and Ring Coupling, give you more flexible and reliable network.

The SFP small form factor pluggable transceiver in HMG-828 supports 1000BaseSX, 1000BaseLX and up to long haul distances of 40km and 80km.
