Allied Telesis announces encompassment of its industrial networking portfolio with the launch of the IE510 Series of feature-rich Gigabit stackable switches.
When deployed with the IE200 Series, IE510 Series switches are ideal for connecting devices such as CCTV cameras, industrial automation systems and building management systems, or anywhere that harsh environments are typical.
Available in models, the first model AT-IE510-28GSX, provides the flexibility of 24 SFP bays along with an additional four 1/10Gbps uplink ports and the scalability provided by Allied Telesis Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack).
The switch also delivers the sophisticated features found within the Allied Telesis AlliedWare Plus next-generation operating system, including Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing), comprehensive automation using scripting and triggers and Allied Telesis Management Framework (AMF).
Sharing insights on the new launch, Seiichiro Sato, Director of Global Product Marketing at Allied Telesis said, “The Allied Telesis IE510 Series has been developed to support a broad range of critical infrastructure applications and environments where a highly reliable, feature-rich solution is required for the ever-increasing number of connected devices.”
Allied Telesis has been a longtime proponent of IPv6 in mainstream networking; and support for IPv6 is native to the IE510 Series, making it simple to deploy and manage a fully IPv6-capable network. This is particularly important for industrial and embedded applications where the number of devices or things being connected is growing exponentially, with the trend toward an Internet of Things (IoT).
“This includes IP video surveillance and intelligent transport, and other embedded applications where the environment can be challenging, as well as embedded applications where reliability and simplified management are essential. Allied Telesis is committed to reducing the cost and complexity of networking, and this new family achieves that with an extensive range of features, continuing our history of innovation to meet the demands of tomorrow’s networks added Sato.“
