Today, video monitoring equipment has penetrated nearly every industrial market through security monitoring, quality control, safety, backup records or providing network/internet access to users. In sectors where bandwidth becomes an issue such as in high density camera deployments or applications that utilize high definition video, there are always concerns about throughput caps.

Antaira introduces a software-free, no hassle, and compact unmanaged Ethernet switch with 10 Gigabit fiber uplink ports. In the past users that faced bandwidth issues were forced to purchase managed units in order to deploy features such as port trunking to increase overall bandwidth throughput. However, port trunking reduces the number of ports available because more ports are being utilized to increase speeds of a single connection, therefore, increasing installation costs and the number of failure points in the system.

Another option for users in the past was to use an extremely costly core grade 10G managed switch that are bulky and not necessarily industrial grade. Antaira Technologies' industrial grade unmanaged Ethernet switch with 10 Gigabit uplink fiber ports provides a more cost-effective and reliable solution to higher bandwidth concerns. The LNP-1002G-10G-SFP(-T) provides two 10G fiber ports allowing for daisy chain data aggregation along the network path. Eight RJ45 copper ports on this unit are also IEEE 802.3at compliant to provide up to 30 W of PoE power to end devices, preventing the need for extra power equipment. Despite high bandwidth and PoE power output capabilities, this unit has a compact size and supports high EFT and ESD surge, reverse power and inrush current protection.

The LNP-1002G-10G-SFP(-T) is backed by a 5-year warranty, is IP30 rated, compact, fanless, DIN-Rail and wall mountable. This product is built to withstand industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference and temperature extremes from -40 to 75 C.
