Asante Technologies is shipping two new Ethernet switches from the InterCore line of products. The IC36000 Series of switches are designed for high volume networks. The switches feature 1 RU sizes and support for 4 modular SFP ports on each switch. According to Asante Technologies:
Asanté Technologies, Inc. today announced the addition of 2 new Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switches to Asantés IntraCore® family.
The IC36000 Series of switches are designed to provide high-density 10/100/1000BaseT connections at the edge of the network in a space-saving 1 RU form factor. Support for 4 modular SFP ports on both switches allows them to connect up to 4 1000BaseSX or 4 1000BaseLX connections for either trunked Gigabit Ethernet connections to the core or for aggregating remote wiring closets or buildings via fiber.
With 10/100/1000 speeds on every port, network administrators will have up to 10x more bandwidth over conventional Fast Ethernet switchesplus the ability to manage traffic flows. They can use rate limiting to proactively guard against congestion caused by a small number of users saturating network bandwidth. With full support for data/voice/video other Ethernet/IP, theyll be running VoIP and IP multicasting with IGMP
