AMG Systems has launched the AMG510 series of fully managed Layer 2+ Ethernet switches for commercial network applications. Designed for 19 inch rack or desktop mounting, the range comprises 11 models, including 10, 18, 26, 28, 32 and 52 port variants, with 30W PoE+ and 10GB options available.
Providing 100Mbps, Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, the series provides the ideal solution for all Layer 2+ switching applications. The switches incorporate powerful packet processors designed to handle large volumes of traffic, with switching fabric up to 176Gbps and support for jumbo frames up to 9.6KB.
The 510 Series employs AMG’s virtual stacking technology, which simplifies network configuration through a single web GUI interface. Users can easily configure and monitor all switches within a virtual stack, eliminating the requirement for multiple browser tabs and the need to remember many IP management addresses. In addition, the AMG virtual stack can be used across all AMG510 series models, even when installed in dispersed physical locations
The switch range supports Rapid Spanning Tree, Multiple Spanning Tree and Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) protocols to create fully redundant networks. IGMP functionality is supported to handle multicast traffic, as commonly used in IP CCTV deployments.
‘Developed from the ground up for video intensive networks, the AMG510 Series provides a cost-effective Ethernet solution for the reliable transmission of video and data in commercial environments,’ states Tom Exley, Technical Director at AMG. ‘All models include virtual stacking technology which simplifies installation, and network management through a single web GUI interface. Layer 3 static routing is standard on all models, along with all other L2/L3 protocols that would be expected to manage and secure modern Ethernet networks.’
