TRENDnet has announced it has added Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) support to its line of industrial managed network switches, available through a free firmware upgrade. ERPS is an advanced form of ring topology which links networks together for redundancy while protecting data flow. ERPS essentially functions in the same manner as Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) or Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). The main difference between the three is the recovery time.
Altronix released their new NetWay5B 5-Port Hardened Switch. This compact IP switch is designed to mount in virtually any Altronix enclosure and easily combines multiple IP devices over a single Ethernet cable. It is especially suitable in their Trove series where multiple IP access controllers from the industry’s leading manufacturers are deployed. NetWay5B greatly reduces installation costs by eliminating the need and costs associated with running dedicated cables for each deployed device.
Berk-Tek defines the uLAN as an emerging network made up of non-traditional ethernet-enabled utility devices that are now connecting to the network. While the traditional Core LAN—comprised of the PC, VoIP phone and WiFi—is not expected to undergo significant change through 2022, the emerging uLAN is expected to grow significantly over that time. The uLAN and the network infrastructure supporting it will be largely responsible for connecting and powering the billions of new devices.
Omnitron Systems introduced new OmniConverter® PoE Extenders. OmniConverter PoE Extenders enable the delivery of full-rate Ethernet data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) over standard twisted pair cabling, and break through the 100 meter standard Ethernet distance barrier. Utilizing Omnitron’s exclusive power-boosting technology, the extenders can be daisy-chained to deliver Ethernet data and IEEE standard POE power to multiple PoE Powered Devices at distances up to 800 meters.
TRENDnet is excited to launch the market’s first USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters with its USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter and the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter.
