New Combination Device Server and Ethernet Switch with 8 Ethernet and 4 Serial Ports

Taipei, Taiwan, October 12, 2011—Moxa is pleased to release the NPort S8458 series, a combination device server/Ethernet switch with 8 Ethernet ports. The S8458 joins the 5-Ethernet port S8455 to supply compact, space-saving device server and Ethernet switch functionality in a single unit at very low power consumption and cost, perfect for space-constrained cabinets. There’s no need to purchase switches and device servers separately. With a space-saving form factor, power-efficient design, and 8 Ethernet ports, the NPort S8458 is an ideal solution for traffic monitoring/control applications and renewable energy markets, such as solar power plants and wind farms. 


In addition to meeting demanding application requirements, the NPort S8458 can operate reliably and stably in a wide temperature range from -40 to 85°C.
Simplify Your Industrial Networking
l          All-in-one serial/Ethernet device server solution
The NPort S8458 series supports the full range of NPort® series device server functions and adds a built-in full-function managed Ethernet switch, a potent combination that handles virtually any kind of application. In addition, Moxa’s own Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain technology (recovery time < 20 ms) or RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1w/D) provide Ethernet redundancy function to increase the reliability and availability. 
l         Ring redundancy at the device level
The NPort S8458 series integrates a full function NPort® device server with an industrial switch to carry serial and Ethernet devices at the same time. In addition, the NPort S8458 can also achieve redundancy using the STP/RSTP standards, Moxa’s proprietary Turbo Ring, or Turbo Ring redundancy protocols. This all-in-one design can be used to optimize and simplify your device network, and enhance reliability.
