Super Micro Computer Inc., a major player in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology innovation and green computing, recently added two new 52 port 1 Gigabit Ethernet switches, to its Ethernet switch portfolio.
The company’s new and extremely robust VoIP switches are designed for top-of-rack or standalone applications. They offer cost-effective networking options for data center, cloud computing, HPC, and SMB environments.
The new SSE-G2252 and SSE-G2252P incorporate the latest Energy Efficient Ethernet technology and are IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3az compliant. They offer 1GbE connectivity over 48x RJ45 ports and 4x SFP ports. The SSE-G2252P model is IEEE 802.3at compliant and supports Power over Ethernet.
A full range of popular Ethernet features including jumbo frames, link aggregation, VLANs, and quality of service are also provided by the newly debuted switches, which are all encompassed in a compact 1U form factor for flexibility in rack-mount installations.
In a press release, Supermicro president and CEO Charles Liang said, “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.”
He further added, “PoE functionality with 30W per port further extends our solutions for SMB applications. 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.”
The PoE model supports and makes it possible to rapidly install PoE-based devices such as wireless access points for conferences and shows, as well as support VoIP phones, PoE surveillance cameras, and a myriad of other PoE devices.
