LIGHTLY MANAGED SWITCH CLAIMS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Rockwell Automation reckons that its new lightly managed industrial Ethernet switch addresses evolving networking needs and closes gap between unmanaged and managed switches.

The Allen-Bradley Stratix 2500 lightly managed switch promises the security, resilience, segmentation and bandwidth-optimisation benefits of a managed switch without the need for extensive configuration. 



Straight out of the box, the Stratix 2500 can be used to prioritise critical industrial network traffic and can be configured for its specific application. This can help manufacturers to evolve their networks as their requirements change.

Management features offered by the Stratix 2500 include monitoring and optimising traffic flow and providing diagnostic information to help minimise downtime. It also can support up to 64 virtual LANs for logical segmentation, which helps reduce total cost of ownership. Port security allows users to disable ports or control end-device connectivity based on the MAC address.



The Allen-Bradley Stratix 2500 lightly managed switch uses embedded Cisco technology and is part of the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system.
