Network Integration - Ethernet hardware: Advantech’s EKI-3725 is a 5-port gigabit unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch that reduces power consumption by up to 60%. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.The EKI-3725 is a "Light Industrial" unmanaged switch. It features five Ethernet switches. It's the first to market with dedicated priority ports, up to 60% reduction in power consumption, smart diagnostics, and supports gigabit data transmission making it ideal for a host of industrial automation functions.

Priority ports are an exciting development and, as the name suggests, they prioritize the traffic coming over those ports and delay the less immediately necessary data over the remaining ports. This is especially useful for high bandwidth applications such as video streaming where latency would cause problems.

Superior smart diagnostic functions are the best way to discover a fault on the system without lots of painstaking port analysis. In energy sensitive applications where power consumption is a factor, this switch comes with advanced power saving functions that save up to 60% on power consumption by shutting down ports that have no link and budgeting power based on the length of the Ethernet cable. This is part of the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Standard.

Gigabit Ethernet provides users with the fastest possible data transmission speeds for high definition video streaming and the ability to sustain constantly high traffic loads.
