SMC's Latest Metro Edge Managed Switch Targets FTTH Applications
Feb 28, 2007 8:00 AM
SMC Networks’ newly released SMC7824M/FSW metro edge switch is designed for high-bandwidth applications with a non-blocking, single-chip switching architecture that is capable of handling up to 12.8Gbps.
The feature-rich, fiber-optic standalone 100BaseBX metro edge managed switch, priced at less than $200 per port, supports as many as four Gigabit uplinks for even more high-bandwidth communication to facilitate fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployments, say SMC representatives.
Bringing mission-critical redundancy and future-proofing to the edge of the Metro network, the new SMC7824M/FSW delivers 100BaseBX single-strand fiber Ethernet connectivity for direct, high-speed connections to the service provider network. The option for up to four Gigabit uplinks connecting this switch onto the service provider network enables maximum flexibility and redundancy for connections, says the company. And the unit's two removable power supplies and removable fan tray minimize downtime, maximize reliability, and simplify maintenance, adds SMC.
