Industrial Ethernet switches with management are high-performance devices designed for use in harsh industrial environments. These switches provide advanced network management, configuration and monitoring features that are essential for reliable and efficient operation of industrial networks.
They are designed to withstand extreme conditions in industrial environments such as high temperatures, vibration, dust, humidity and electromagnetic interference. These switches are made of durable materials and meet industry standards to ensure reliable operation even in the harshest environments.
They offer extensive management and configuration options. This includes central network management using dedicated software that allows all switches in the network to be managed and monitored from a single location. The switches also support various network management protocols such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), enabling traffic monitoring, configuration management and network diagnostics.
They support Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) and Quality of Service (QoS) features that enable efficient management of network traffic. VLANs allow the network to be divided into virtual segments, which improves security and traffic efficiency. QoS allows you to prioritize certain network traffic, such as voice or video traffic, to ensure the best quality of service.
Industrial Ethernet switches with management often offer redundant features to ensure high network availability.
