EtherWAN Systems: Brings the Advanced Hardened Managed Ethernet PoE Switch with High Power Output for IP Surveillance Applications

EtherWAN system specializes in designing and manufacturing Ethernet equipment especially for harsh environments. Its US headquarters is in Anaheim, California, while its Pacific Rim headquarters and manufacturing facilities are in Taipei, Taiwan. EtherWAN focus on Ethernet connectivity for applications in various markets including IP surveillance, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), electric utility, oil and mining, factory automation, etc.

Technology Capability in PoE

Quality product and strong knowhow are EtherWAN's key competence. EtherWAN commits to continuously provide professional support bridging analog to IP surveillance solutions with the advanced Ethernet gears. EtherWAN also reveals its technology capability in Power over Ethernet (PoE) and is pleased to showcase its new EX78000 Series PoE Ethernet switch.

EtherWAN's new EX78000 managed hardened swi tch prov ides more advanced features to accommodate the Power Device trend required more power resources and also provides flexibility of 10-port 10/100BASE-TX/FX/BX/SPF plus 2-port Gigabit-TX/SX/LX/SFP with full PoE function.

To enhance the PoE capability, the upgraded EX78000 series complies with IEEE802.3at standard providing up to 30 watts power per port and full-loaded with a 180 watts power source. This allows users freely configure all 8 PoE ports when connecting with either IEEE802.3af (15.4W/ea) or IEEE802.3at (30W/ea) devices differently. Total numbers of IEEE802.3at PoE ports are now upgraded from 4 to 6. To provide the flexibility of fiber optic options, the EX78000 also provides connector options of SC, ST and modular SFP interfaces to match difference applications.

EtherWAN's α-Ring – Ethernet redundancy

The EX78000 series also features EtherWAN's α-Ring technology which provides a high-speed network redundancy mechanism to recover from a network failure in less than 15 milliseconds with zero packet loss during the self-healing process. The EX78000 series supports fully layer 2 managed functions such as portbased VLAN, QoS, IGMP, GMRP, Bandwidth Rate Control, Port Trunking and Mirroring, Packet Filtering, and IEEE802.1x Security. Its PoE control and scheduling function allows scheduling the power supply by each port in each single day.

Turn-key surveillance solutions

EtherWAN's EX78000 series functions at wide temperature range of -40°C to 75°C for extreme environments and is tested for functional operation @ -40°C to 85°C which is an ideal selection for outdoor surveillance. The EX78000 series has being installed in tunnel surveillance and freeway surveillance including traffic analysis around the world. It is certain that the new features from the EX78000 series will bring up more turn-key surveillance solutions.
