Jun 2016 - Universal & rugged 10-port managed 10Gbit Switch


MPL announces an expansion of this rugged Switch Family. The new products is 10-port switch that includes two 10Gbit SFP+ ports and still conforms to MPL's high standards like; long-term availability, extended temperature capability, flexibility, and low power requirements.

The new switch called MAXBES integrates 8-ports with 1Gbit and 2-ports with 10Gbit speed. The eight 1GBit ports are either available on RJ45 connectors or four RJ45 connectors and four 1GBit SFP next to the two 10Gbit SFP+ ports.
The open frame version is available with lockable headers instead of RJ45. All ports have status LEDs on the front-plate, indicating the activity of each port.

The MAXBES solution is extremely compact and is built in a rugged aluminum housing or as board level product The input power requirement of the device is 8 -36VDC and comes with reverse polarity protection (optional with redundant input) and less then 15W power consumption at full operation. The product can be operated at -20°C to +60°C.

All on market available 1GBit Ethernet compatible SFP transceivers (according MSA) can be used. It allows the users to select the appropriate transceiver for each link. The SFP+ Slots supports 10GBit and 1GBit Ethernet compatible, MSA compliant SFP+ Modules.

The MAXBES products support features such as
• Configurable via Web Interface (including SSL), Telnet, SNMP (incl. SNMPv3) or RS232
   - Port-based and IEEE 802.1Q VLAN
   - IEEE 802.1D Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol
   - IEEE 802.1X MAC Address Checking
   - Quality of Service
   - Port monitoring
   - Switch Statistics
• Digital diagnostic monitoring (DDM) according SFF-8472
• Firmware Update via HTTP or TFTP
• Down- and up-loadable configuration files in XML format
Integration of IGMPv3 support and Port trunking is planned.
