Allied Telesis has expanded its range of AT-8100 Series switches, including the first in a line of stackable green access edge switches designed to optimise end-user connectivity.
The AT-8100 Series is a value access edge workhorse connecting systems requiring advanced Layer 2+ and basic Layer 3 features, combined with a range of connectivity options from copper to fibre. The series also supports the latest security features required at the edge of the network and is designed to interoperate with industry-standard platforms such as Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP).
The series includes several models including the 8100S/24 and 24C compact model which addresses the needs of businesses with limited space and is ideal for applications such as retail point-of-sales systems.
The Power over Ethernet (PoE) versions – including the 8100S/24POE and 8100S/48POE switches – support the 802.3at standard and deliver up to 30 watts of power per port.
