ComNet introduces cost-effective nine-port Gigabit Ethernet switch to VL product line

Manufacturer of fiber-optic transmission and networking equipment, ComNet Europe Ltd of Leeds in the UK, has expanded its ComWorx VL line by introducing a cost-effective nine-port Gigabit Ethernet switch for ITS, commercial security, car park or access applications. The Comworx CWGE9MS is the company’s cost-effective Managed Ethernet Switch and provides nine Gigabit 10/100/1,000TX/FX ports, and is designed for applications that require a high Ethernet throughput. The all-new device makes available seven 10/100/1,000TX ports, and two 1,000Mbps ports that are standard RJ-45 electrical ports or can be configured for fiber-optic media, by using selectable optional ComNet modules in the SFP port.

“The CWGE9MS offers three very significant features,” stated Steve Clarke, ComNet Europe’s managing director. “The first 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.

“The second major feature is X-Ring technology. This provides a faster redundant recovery than Rapid Spanning Tree topology. The action is similar to popular STP or RSTP. X-Ring provides a redundant network path in the event 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 300ms. Lastly, we are very cognizant as to the cost pressures today’s system integrator faces. That is why the CWGE9MS is aggressively priced and part of ComWorx VL,” Clarke concluded.
