Whether as stand-alone units or in CompactPCI format, MEN's indusrial Ethernet switches are easily customisable low-power platforms for harsh environments. They come with an extended firmware package to fulfill all requirements of highly demanding application. The management firmware enables individual configuration of all ports via command line interface, SNMP (version 3) and through an HTTP web server.
Widespread Firmware Support for Complex Networks
MEN Mikro Elektronik offers rugged Ethernet Switches as stand-alone or CompactPCI devices. All managed version are equipped with a fully featured software package to progessionally manage even complex network infrastructures, including Layer-2 switching functionalities such as VLANs, QoS, LLDP and link aggregation. Dynamic reconfiguration scenarios are managed by protocols like IGMP snooping and filtering, RSTP, and DHCP.
In lab environments, the firmware can be cnfigured by a comfortable command line environment with full access to all configuration options and status information, while SNMP offers full management access in deployed operation, including traps on exceptional conditions. The switch configuration data can be stored on an external storage key, which can remain at the device location to allow fool-proof switch replacement without any interaction with the device. To ensure safe operation, the firmware fully supports all hardware monitoring appliancees, such as for temperature, voltages or load on the PoE enabled network ports.
