August 6, 2019 – Antaira Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of industrial networking devices and communication solutions for harsh environment applications and announced the expansion of its industrial networking infrastructure family with the introduction of the LMP-1802G-SFP and LMX-1802G-SFP Series.
Antaira’s LMP-1802G-SFP and LMX-1802G-SFP series are industrial-grade equipment that is Ethernet ready to fulfill various markets’ edge-level networking applications in harsh and outdoor environments, such as manufacturing automation, security surveillance, power/utility, water wastewater treatment plants, oil/gas/mining, and transportation.
The LMX-1802G-SFP Series is a choice for campus ring solutions with its two fiber optic ports supporting an open standard ring technology (ERPS). There are many proprietary ring technologies available but using an open standard like ERPS means that it is possible to have equipment from different manufacturers working together in the ring. For example, campuses have networking rings consisting of hardened and industrial switches for outdoor environments that require a wide temperature-rated device. These outdoor devices are able to communicate and send critical information back to an enterprise switch at a datacenter.
Antaira’s LMP-1802G-SFP Series can provide a number of PoE ports (30 Watts) for high density security applications, and also fiber optic interfaces for long range connectivity (1 meter to 100 KM) that is 3 feet to over 60 miles. The SFP port will allow connectivity beyond the 100 meter/300-foot limitation of copper cable and also permit connectivity through areas where electromagnetic interference may cause issues such as on a factory floor.
The Antaira management software on these switches helps monitor, react, and troubleshoot applications. Features such as SNMP Traps, Syslog, and port mirroring can help maintain a system.
