SIXNET launches RK series industrial Ethernet managed switches

SIXNET is introducing its new RK series of rack-mount industrial Ethernet managed switches offered in 16-, 25- and 32-port models. The rugged 1U 19in rack-mount packaging is designed for heavy-duty carrier class and industrial applications that require high density in order to save cost and space. The RK16, RK25 and RK32 switches are extremely configurable with up to four flexible slots that accept a wide range of modules including: 10/100Mbps and 10/100/1000Mbps copper RJ45 ports; 10, 100 or 1000Mbps fibre optic ports for distances up to 120 km; plus Power Over Ethernet (POE) ports.

The ruggedness and reliability of the RK switches comes from the ability to operate within a wide range of temperatures (from -40 to +85degC). These switches are also: fully CE and UL rated; NEMA-TS2 compliant for traffic control systems; NEBS Layer3 and ETSI compliant for mission-critical applications; and IEEE 1613 and IEC 61850 rated for power substations.

All the RK switches are of a space-efficient 1U high design and can be easily mounted in an industry standard 19in, 23in or ETSI rack. Two of the RK16 switches can be mounted side by side in a 19in rack for the highest port density. The RK25 and RK32 are offered in front or reverse mount models to best fit any application. Plus the reverse mount models have status LEDs conveniently duplicated on both the front and back of the unit so that they can always be easily viewed.

The RK switches are loaded with advanced software capabilities for network management, network optimisation and, most of all, network security.

Real-time performance is ensured with RSTP for fast redundant rings, VLANs for virtual network segregation, QoS for priority queuing, IGMP for multicast filtering, port rate limiting and more. Network management and advanced diagnostics are provided with SNMP, RMON and port mirroring. Plus true network security with authentication and encryption is offered through: SNMPv3; HTTPS/ SSL for secure web management; RADIUS/TACACS for secure logins; and MAC-based port security.
