Belden's MACH104-16TX-PoEP Ethernet switches feature Power over Ethernet Plus
Belden introduces the MACH104-16TX-PoEP Ethernet switches with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE Plus) capability in accordance with IEEE 802.3at standards. The MACH104-16TX-PoEP series of hardened Ethernet workgroup switches are managed all-Gigabit switches with sixteen Gigabit PoE/PoE+ ports and four additional Gigabit RJ45/SFP combo ports. A version with two additional 10 Gigabit XFP ports is also available to facilitate high bandwidth backbone requirements. Power options include a choice of single/dual 110/220 V AC inputs or external 48 V DC external inputs for fanless operation (0° C to + 50° C).
The switch’s management functionality facilitates media redundancy systems such as HIPER ring, MRP (IEC ring function) and rapid spanning tree. The security mechanisms provided include multi-client authentication via RADIUS server, access control via IEEE 802.1x or MAB (MAC Authentication Bypass), IP and MAC port security plus SNMP V3 and SSH.
Each switch comes with an integrated V.24 and USB interface. The V.24 interface is an RJ11 socket for optional (local) serial configuration, while the USB socket can be coupled with an ACA 21 adaptor to store the configuration data, recall it as necessary, and upgrade or downgrade the operating software automatically.
