Ring switches have fastest fault recovery
The latest Turbo Ring from Moxa Technologies Inc. sets a new world record for the fastest fault recovery within 20 millisecond in ring topologies.
Brea, CA —The latest Turbo Ring from Moxa Technologies Inc. sets a new world record for the fastest fault recovery within 20 millisecond in ring topologies. Constant uptime achieved through effective redundancy has become a key concern for industrial network applications. All Moxa Turbo Ring switches offer the fastest fault recovery, flexible ring topology and uninterrupted communication, which provide high network availability for cost-effective redundant connections wherever required in industrial applications. If any link in the ring fails, the system will return to normal communication in less than 20 milliseconds at a full load (250-switches in a ring). Various topologies can be configured using Moxa Turbo Ring to reduce cabling and network planning costs. Options include ring coupling without a coupling control line, dual rings in one switch, and dual-homing.
In other Moxa product news, the EDS-518A Series Industrial 16+2G-port Gigabit Managed Redundant Ethernet Switches provides two combo gigabit ports with built-in RJ45 or SFP ports for gigabit optic communication. The gigabit Ethernet Redundant Turbo Ring (recovery time & 300 ms) increases the reliability and speed of a network backbone. EDS-518A also supports intelligent network management functions, including QoS (quality of service), IGMP snooping / GMRP, VLAN, port trunking, SNMP V1 / V2c / V3, IEEE 802.1X, and https / SSL. Many Moxa industrial Ethernet switches, media converters, and serial-to-Ethernet servers have been certified by the DNV and GL classification societies. The relevant products have been certified for safe and reliable use with applications for battleships, ocean liners, offshore drilling platforms, tide-power generation systems, and offshore windmill farms.
