New Managed Switch Ideal for Connecting Security Surveillance Systems, Lighting, and Digital Signage and Features Bluetooth, Near-Field Communication, and Point-to-Point Wireless Capabilities
Transition Networks, a leading provider of edge connectivity solutions, announced its new 4+1 port Managed Hardened Gigabit Ethernet Power-over-Ethernet ++ (PoE++) IEEE 802.3bt (Draft) compliant Switch (SESPM1040-541LT-xx Series) with wireless capabilities for network extension and simplified network installations.
The new managed switch is self-enclosed in a NEMA 4X/IP-66 rated enclosure for use in harsh outdoor environments and can be mounted directly on a wall, pole, or the side of a building. This self-contained switch and enclosure reduces the time, expense, and other challenges associated with city permit requirements, approvals, installation and access to equipment in traditional cabinet applications.
The SESPM1040-541-LT-xx Series is a Layer 2 switch with (4) 10/100/1000Base-T PoE++ ports and (1) combination 10/100/1000Base-T RJ-45 or 100/1000Base-X SFP port (additional port options available). Each port offers 6KV surge protection against lightning or other surges in current, and additional fuse protection safeguards against unintentional intrusion from outside power lines eliminating the need for external circuit cross protection.
The SESPM1040-541-LT-xx Series also includes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity to allow remote access for configuring, monitoring, or troubleshooting switches that are installed in high places where access would require a ladder or lift. Installers can gain simple yet secure access to the switch from a convenient location through the easy-to-use mobile app provided for tablets or smart phones without having to physically connect a cable to a management port.
To simplify installation, the near-field communication (NFC) function allows pre-configuration of one or more switches with the smart device app. The installer simply positions a NFC-enabled device with the installed app over the switch to transfer the configuration allowing for set up prior to powering up the switch or connecting to the network.
