ComNet Europe is introducing a four-port self-managed Ethernet switch, the CNGE2+2SMS. The switch has two copper Gigabit TX ports and two user-configurable multi-rate 100 or 1000 Mbps Gigabit SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) Ethernet ports.
These self-managed switches were designed as a simple, yet cost effective solution to allow IP video to be introduced in multiple locations on a ring network topology without the cost and complexity a managed switch requires. The unit features Gigabit TX ports that take in IP video and two SFP optical ports that take in data from the previous network device and forward it optically to the next device in a ring topology. This small sized switch also has two PoE models to provide either 30 or 60 watts of power to IP cameras requiring power and are ideal for use in confined spaces.
The key benefit to users of the CNGE2+2SMS is its ease of use. It offers management without the cost or user knowledge required for a managed switch. This port-configured Ethernet switch allows the user to enable a unique Mux function which when used in a linear topology prevents network flooding of multicast traffic. The CNGE2+2SMS is pre-programmed and meets the IEEE 802.1w RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) for a true self-healing network in the event of a path failure.
