VoIP Switch - Supermicro Unveils New VoIP Switches

April 17, 2012


Server technology provider Super Micro Computer has expanded its Ethernet switch portfolio with the addition of two new 52 port 1 Gigabit Ethernet switches, boasting VoIP functionality.

The new SSE-G2252 and SSE-G2252P switches incorporate the latest Energy Efficient Ethernet technology. Both Ethernet switches are IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3az compliant and offer 1GbE connectivity over 48x RJ45 ports and 4x SFP ports. The SSE-G2252P model is also IEEE 802.3at compliant and supports Power over Ethernet (PoE). With this support, the SSE-G2252P offers the most flexible power budget allocation in the industry.

"By incorporating the latest Energy Efficient Ethernet technology in our new 1U networking switches we have added another dimension to our 'We Keep IT Green' initiative," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro, in a statement.

"PoE functionality with 30W per port further extends our solutions for Enterprise IT and SMB applications,” Liang added. “These new cost-effective switches offer high density, Layer 2 switching with 52 ports of 1GbE to meet growing IT demands and complement our extensive line of high-performance, high-efficiency server and storage products."

Supermicro’s VoIP switches are designed to offer cost-effective networking options for data center, cloud computing, HPC and SMB environments. There is even a choice between Web-based GUI or an industry compatible command-line-interface (CLI) for management.

The PoE model enables rapid installation of PoE-based devices such as wireless access points for conferences and shows, support for VoIP phones, as well as PoE surveillance cameras, among others. The Ethernet switches also include features like jumbo frames, link aggregation, VLANs, and quality of service.    

In a related industry announcement, Transition Networks (News - Alert) has launched a new switch that can be used for metro Ethernet or office applications.

The switch, dubbed the SM24DPA, allows network managers to seamlessly integrate fiber into networks by way of 24 dual-speed small form factor pluggable slots, and can give IT managers access to enhanced link layer discovery protocol. The switch also supports enhanced security features including SSH, SSL and TACACS+, guaranteeing secure network connections 24/7.
