Microsens 6-Port GbE Micro Switch
The 6 port GBE Micro Switch Generation 6 constitutes an extension of the Gigabit Ethernet Micro Switch. In addition to the 1000Base-X fiber optic uplink, for linking to the central distributor, this switch has an additional RJ-45 downlink 10/100/1000Base-T. This additional connection is positioned at the rear of the switch and is also covered after the installation. This additional connection can, amongst other things, be used for cascading other Micro Switches in order to obtain additional connection capacities.
The interconnection of two switches via the TP port offers to increase the reliability of the network. If one fiber connection is interrupted the neighbouring switch handles the data traffic via RSTP.
All five RJ-45 ports (4 user ports and 1 downlink) support the complete Powerover- Ethernet functionality according the IEEE Std. 802.3af and 802.3at (min. 54VDC needed). A powerful Linux-OS offers additional services and feature for future use.
The use of memory-card shortens maintenance and service windows. The whole configuration of the Micro Switch can be moved to another system, just by changing the SD-card. A fault-tolerant journaling file-system is used. An encryption of the SD-Card is as option available.
Intelligent power management monitors the active current consumption of connected end equipment. The switches are powered by an external 54 V DC power supply.
Optional the GBE Micro Switch supports two SFP-Transceivers for redundant fiber-uplinks.
