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 end devices like 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 switch uses an all-gigabit design for high-performance network and end device support. The Stratix 5400 switch is available in 18 models and offers up to 20 gigabit ports in one switch to meet a wide range of application needs. Default configurations help simplify setup, optimize performance and enable faster diagnostics retrieval. The Stratix 5400 switch also comes with network address translation to help reduce commissioning time.
