"MSTP allows you to divide your RSTP network into multiple VLANs. This is a
practical function to increase the flexibility when managing your network
traffic. RSTP-2004 largely reduces the network recovery time and provides
higher availability to your network. By adding these new network redundancy
protocols, Moxa now can provide complete network redundancy solutions to
fulfill the demand for different applications," stated Gary Chang, Product
Manger of industrial Ethernet infrastructure.
Moxa managed industrial Ethernet switches now provide Turbo Ring, Turbo
Chain (Moxa proprietary protocols with 20 ms recovery time), STP, RSTP,
RSTP-2004 and MSTP packaged with the latest V3.0 firmware which has been
released on the Moxa website. The V3.0 firmware is available for both the
EDS-405A/408A and EDS-505A/508A/510A/516A/518A series, and will be released
soon for the EDS-608/611/616/619, EDS-728, IKS, PT, and TN series.
