IT managers face the complex challenge of dealing with the exploding growth of network traffic while containing costs and minimising disruption. To help meet these needs, Extreme Networks has introduced the EAS family of Gigabit switches, targeted at the Ethernet Access layer of the network.
The Extreme Networks EAS family of switches provides consistent, secure, cost-effective network access to support exploding mobility of users, applications and devices. These switches complement an intelligent and high-performance core and edge, providing IT managers with an enterprise-class access layer to build out their network infrastructure.
• Dense connectivity for growing enterprise access requirements
• Cost-effective enterprise access
• Simple and flexible management
The EAS switches come in two models:
- EAS 200-24p: PoE+ Layer 3-Lite switch
The EAS 200-24p is designed for the access layer of the mobile network. It provides 24 ports of 10/100/1000BASE-TX PoE+ RJ-45 connectivity. Four of these 24 ports can be optionally used for 1000BASE-X SFP. Each 10/100/1000 Mbps port supports 802.3af and 802.3at PoE standard with a power budget of 370 watts.
- EAS 100-24t: non-PoE Layer 2+ switch
The EAS 100-24t is designed for simple Ethernet access connectivity for up to 24 devices using 10/100/1000BASE-TX RJ-45. Four of these 24 ports can be optionally used for 1000BASE-X SFP. In addition to being an easy fit into a standard rack with its one rack unit height, the fan-less design and short depth of the EAS 100-24t enables access to a broad range of deployments with space and noise-level constraints.
