Antaira Technologies introduces two Ethernet-ready networking devices


Antaira-LMP2602

Antaira Technologies has expanded its industrial networking family with the introduction of the LMP-2602G-SFP and LMX-2602G-SFP series of Ethernet-ready equipment.

These devices are suited for applications such as manufacturing automation, security surveillance, power/utility, water wastewater treatment plants, oil/gas/mining, and transportation. They support high-density Ethernet port connectivity, wide bandwidth and long-distance data transmission.

Some applications require using a ring technology for complete redundant network designs. Antaira’s LMP-2602G-SFP and LMX-2602G-SFP series uses ERPS or G.8032, which is an open ring architecture.

This permits the use of various other Antaira switches as well as other manufactures such as Cisco participating in the ring.

Open standards give the network architect the flexibility to design the most efficient network without being tied to one manufacturer.

Fibre interfaces used in both ring and non-ring applications give the ability to extend a network out past traditional buildings, across campuses and even towns. At the same time, it can be difficult to maintain the networking equipment when they are located a far distance away.

Managed switches are critical in controlling and predicting failures on the network as well as determining when and where issues reside.
