Global IP networking systems provider Allied Telesis has confirmed the availability of its new IE510 series of Gigabit industrial switches in Malaysia.
The new series of the company's industrial Ethernet portfolio has been released to meet the surge created by connected devices, said Paul Choy, country sales manager for Allied Telesis Malaysia.
"In addition, we are seeing great demand for technology that delivers intelligence and value," Choy said. "When it comes to embedded industrial applications and machine to machine networks, downtime for IT systems becomes a critical issues so reliability and resilience is of significant importance that will only increase over time."
The IE510 series of stackable switches complements the existing IE200 series of industrial Ethernet switches and are ideal as core or distribution switches for industrial applications, he said.
Choy said that when deployed with the IE200 Series, IE510 Series switches are ideal for connecting devices such as CCTV cameras, industrial automation systems and building management systems, or anywhere that harsh environments are typical.
A global Allied Telesis announcement said the first model to be released in the IE510 Series, the AT-IE510-28GSX, provided the flexibility of 24 SFP bays along with an additional four 1/10Gbps uplink ports and the scalability provided by Allied Telesis Virtual Chassis Stacking (VCStack).
The statement added that the switch also 'will deliver the sophisticated features found within the Allied Telesis AlliedWare Plus next-generation operating system, including Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing), comprehensive automation using scripting and triggers and Allied Telesis Management Framework (AMF).'
"The Allied Telesis IE510 Series has been developed to support a broad range of critical infrastructure applications and environments where a highly reliable, feature-rich solution is required for the ever-increasing number of connected devices," said Seiichiro Sato, director of Global Product Marketing at Allied Telesis.
"This includes IP video surveillance and intelligent transport, and other embedded applications where the environment can be challenging, as well as embedded applications where reliability and simplified management are essential," said Sato.
'Allied Telesis is committed to reducing the cost and complexity of networking, and this new family achieves that with an extensive range of features, continuing our history of innovation to meet the demands of tomorrow's networks," he said, adding that support for IPv6 in the new series of switches was important for industrial and embedded applications where the number of devices or things being connected was growing exponentially with the trend toward an Internet of Things (IoT).
