All-Gigabit industrial switch addresses growing network bandwidth needs
25 April 2015
Rockwell Automation has expanded its Allen-Bradley Stratix family of industrial switches with the Allen-Bradley Stratix 5400 switch, an all-gigabit option that helps manufacturers achieve higher network speeds for their increasingly high bandwidth applications.
The switch also supports both Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 routing for a range of network configurations. When used as a Layer 2 switch, the Stratix 5400 is suitable for applications involving high-performance, gigabit-speed end devices, such as IP video cameras and telephony. When used as a Layer 3 switch, routing is enabled between segmented networks to help achieve better performance.
Stratix 5400 is available in 18 different models and offers up to 20 gigabit ports in a single switch to meet a wide range of application needs. Default configurations help simplify set-up, optimise performance and enable faster diagnostics retrieval. The unit also comes with Network Address Translation to help reduce commissioning time. It combines advanced Cisco technology and Premier Integration into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system.
