Applications of 10G Industrial Switches in Modern Day Industrial Networks

California, U.S.A., July 2019 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions shares the applications of 10G switches in industrial networks and how to choose the right industrial switches.

Ethernet Direct offers a full spectrum of 10GbE switches to cover industry-wide applications, from Industrial DIN Rail to Rack mount and Enterprise rack mount switches. This is to cater a world of expanding applications, growing virtualization, and cloud-based applications which demands RELIABITY, INCREASED SCALABLITY, HIGHER BANDWIDTH and HIGH LEVELS OF PERFORMANCE.

In the modern world, 10GBase-T technology in industrial Ethernet networks in no longer a “technology of tomorrow.” Ethernet Direct offers affordable and inexpensive fiber based solution that supports high-speed access to the network backbone or data center environment. As industrial networks moved to Industry 4.0, infrastructures are loaded with new devices and high end applications so it is even more critical that the network achieves zero downtime. The increased adoption of virtualization and cloud-based applications, IP surveillance, Video streaming, Voice over IP, and large data processing are driving the requirement for high-bandwidth industrial 10G switches.

Due to proliferating 10G switches market demand, price dropping would mean significant savings for customers. Ethernet Direct offers high density and high performance Layer 2+ full gigabit switches designed with 100M/1G/2.5G/10G SFP+ auto-sensing slots, backward compatible with Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet and can automatically negotiate between higher and lower speed connections. Our future proof solutions enable a cost-effective method and are ideal migration from your current network to 10G Ethernet by utilizing your existing Cat5e/Cat6 RJ-45 and Cat6a/Cat7 connections. This reduces cabling complexity and ultimately results in significant savings for customers.
