Ethernet switch delivers high bandwidth in harsh environments
02 June 2015
Siemens has expanded its portfolio of rugged network components with the Ruggedcom RSG920P – a high port density Ethernet switch designed to operate in harsh environments with widely varying climatic and environmental conditions.
The device can withstand extreme temperature, vibration and shock. With 20 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the Ruggedcom RSG920P is said to be suitable for applications that require high bandwidths and is ready to accommodate future network expansions.
Four Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) slots provide flexibility in uplink distances and bandwidth options with support for Gigabit as well as Fast Ethernet fibre SFPs.
The small form factor of the Ruggedcom RSG920P provides the capacity of a 19in switch and allows deployment in space limited cabinets. Its small size also allows the switch to mounted directly on a DIN-rail. Storing application data, firmware and device configuration for commissioning and field maintenance is simple with the Micro SD card slot.
With 4 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) interfaces supplying up to 120 watt (30 watt per port) of power, the Ruggedcom RSG920P can accommodate various PoE devices such as PTZ (pan–tilt–zoom) cameras, intercom devices, Wireless LAN Access Points and Bluetooth sensors. The Smart Power Management for PoE gives higher priority to the most important devices in a network when power demand exceeds supply.
