Allen-Bradley Stratix 5400 industrial Ethernet switch, Rockwell AutomationNetwork convergence and the growing adoption of high-speed devices across a manufacturer's plant and enterprise are driving the need for higher-performing and more versatile industrial switches. The Allen-Bradley Stratix 5400 switch meets this need and helps manufacturers confirm that their network architecture is robust enough to handle increasing demands.

The Stratix 5400 switch is an all-gigabit option that helps achieve higher network speeds for increasingly high bandwidth applications. The switch also supports both Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 routing for a range of network configurations.

When used as a Layer 2 switch, the Stratix 5400 switch is ideal for industrial environments experiencing an influx of high-performance, gigabit-speed end devices, such as IP video cameras and telephony. It's also fit for heavy-industry applications that require resilient network topologies. When used as a Layer 3 switch, routing is enabled between segmented networks to help achieve better performance. The GE Power over Ethernet (PoE) and additional GE fiber port options enhance scalability and help meet a wide range of application needs.

The Stratix 5400 switch is available in 18 different models and offers up to 20 gigabit ports in a single switch. Default configurations help simplify setup, optimize performance and enable faster diagnostics retrieval. The switch also comes with Network Address Translation to help reduce commissioning time. It combines advanced Cisco technology and Premier Integration into the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system to provide familiar solutions for both information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) professionals.
