Tripp Lite's PDU/Ethernet Switch Combos Save Users Space and Money

CHICAGO, Oct. 6, 2016 /CNW/ -- Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has introduced a new line of Gigabit Ethernet Switches with Integrated PDUs. These innovative devices save IT managers valuable rack space and reduce hardware costs by combining a network grade PDU with a Gigabit Ethernet switch into just 1U. Managed and unmanaged models are available with features such as Mini-GBIC/SFP ports and Power over Ethernet (PoE+) ports.

All models have green Ethernet technology, which detects the length of a connected network cable and adjusts power consumption accordingly. They are ideal for server rooms, network closets, or any environment where rack space is at a premium.

The managed models feature a built-in Ethernet network interface to allow full remote access. These energy-efficient switches provide the ability to manage, prioritize and monitor LAN traffic and offer one or more ways to modify switch operation. With up to 24 ports per switch, managed switches are ideal for use in a small-to-medium distributed network. One managed model also includes PoE+.

The PoE+ models have the capability to provide up to 30 watts of power per port for devices like VoIP phones, wireless access points and surveillance cameras.

Key Features:

  • Available with 16 or 24 auto-negotiating 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports
  • Built-in PDUs provide up to 12 NEMA 5-15R outlets
  • Smart managed switches feature an RJ45 console port and command line interface
  • PoE+ models pass electric power over Ethernet cables to PoE-compatible devices
  • Select models with Mini-GBIC/SFP ports support optical uplink to additional units

"Today's environment demands IT managers do more with less," said Eric Cobb, Tripp Lite Product Manager. "Our 'All-in-1U' switches with PDU answer the call by combining two pieces of networking equipment into a single space- and money-saving unit."
