Moxa introduces full Gigabit Ethernet switch for realtime transmission.

Moxa has introduced the EDS-G509, a new entry into its series of full Gigabit Ethernet switches that support up to nine Gigabit ports with five fibre-optic ports. With so much Gigabit speed packed into one switch, Moxa’s EDS-G509 provides maximum performance through every port, and is ideal for upgrading an existing network to Gigabit speeds or building a new full Gigabit backbone, enabling the realtime transmission of massive amounts of video, voice, and data across a network by means of full Gigabit Ethernet. Top network performance, security, and reliability are also assured through advanced management features, which include QoS, IGMP snooping/GMRP, VLAN, LACP, SNMP V1/V2c/V3, and RMON.

The EDS-G509 provides long distance transmission through its versatile fibre ports. The versatility comes from the ability to deploy five combo ports and four fixed TX ports. Multimode, single-mode, and long haul scenarios can all be realised with the SFP fibre modules, and in addition, four fixed Gigabit TX ports can also be used. As with Moxa’s other Ethernet switches, the EDS-G509 series is designed for harsh industrial environments, and performs in wide temperature extremes ranging from -40 to 75°C, supports 12/24/48 VDC or 24 VAC redundant dual power inputs, and complies with Class I Division 2 and DNV certifications, making the switch ideal for any tough industrial application.

Product features:

* Four 10/100/1000BaseT(X) ports plus five combo (10/100/1000BaseT(X) Gigabit ports.

* Fibre-optic options for extending distance and electrical noise immunity.

* Turbo Ring, RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1w/D) for Ethernet redundancy.

* QoS, IGMP snooping/GMRP, VLAN, LACP, SNMPv1/v2c/v3, RMON supported.

* IEEE 802.1X, HTTPS, and SSH to enhance network security.
