ComWorx added to ComNet's complete Ethernet product line

A new high-capacity managed Ethernet switch – ComWorx – has been introduced by ComNet. This solution is the company’s first environmentally hardened Managed Ethernet Switch that provides a high port density in a compact package, and provides Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) to peripheral devices such as IP cameras and video encoders.

ComWorx CNGE2FE24MSPoE makes available 24 10/100TX ports and two 1000Mbps combo ports that utilize easily interchangeable small-form-factor pluggable optic (SFP) devices as optical interfaces. The new product is specifically designed to operate in environments where extremes of temperature and vibration are a consideration. All 24 ports support IEEE.802.3af based PoE: two ports are Gigabit-configurable for copper or fiber media for use with multimode or single-mode optical fiber, selected by optional SFP modules.

“Out of a big list of benefits, the ComWorx CNGE2FE24MSPoE offers three particularly significant features,” states Vic Milani, ComNet vice president of Product Management. “An important one is IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) snooping V1/V2 for multicast filtering and IGMP Query V1/V2. Without IGMP, multicast traffic (streaming video) is transmitted to all ports within the entire network. This unnecessary traffic floods and ultimately slows the performance of the network. IGMP allows the data to be directed to a specific network address. Another major feature is Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (IEEE 802.1w) or RSTP, which provides a redundant network path in the case of a failure on the network. In most cases, networks that use ComNet managed Ethernet switches can – in the event of a failure – redirect the data paths allowing network restoration in less than a second. The fact that it features port-based Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) (IEEE 802.1Q) addresses issues such as scalability, security, and network management.”

Like all ComNet products, the ComWorx CNGE2FE24MSPoE is backed with a lifetime warranty. “We are just continuing to round out what is a very complete Ethernet product line,” adds Skip Haight, ComNet vice president of Marketing. “The product lines we’re introducing now are the result of years of experience. But the difference between ComNet and the other suppliers is the customer care experience we offer. ComNet is a complete full-service company – not just a product line. From the initial contact forward, our customers will be truly surprised by how good the customer experience is.”
