October 21, 2019 – Antaira Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of industrial networking devices and communication solutions for harsh environment applications and announced a hardware update to the small port count managed Ethernet switches. The new hardware update will be known as “V2”. The affected switches are listed below:
“xx” stands as a placeholder for all of the following different connector types available on specific models:
M for multi-mode SC connector; S3 for single-mode 30km SC connector; ST-M for multi-mode ST connector; ST-S3 for single-mode 30 km ST connector; call for other variations in fiber type.
Antaira Technologies’ low-port-count managed switches are industrial-grade devices that are 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 version two (V2) hardware delivers more horsepower allowing a new operating system to be installed. With the operating system comes a list of features which brings these smaller switches up to the same feature set as the larger port count Antaira switches. Two of the most new and important key features are multi-ring Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) and access control lists.
ERPS is an open standard used for creating redundant link rings. Ring technology helps prevent system outages by creating multiple paths allowing data to make it to its destination even when a link has failed. Using an open standard for the ring allows a customer to not be trapped by a customer’s proprietary protocol.
