Moxa introduces full Gigabit Ethernet switch for real-time transmission

Taipei, Taiwan, December 02, 2008—Moxa is pleased to introduce the EDS-G509, a new entry into its series of full Gigabit Ethernet switches that support up to 9 Gigabit ports with 5 fiber optic ports. With so much Gigabit speed packed into one switch, Moxa's EDS-G509 provides maximum performance through every port, and is ideal for upgrading an existing network to Gigabit speeds or building a new full Gigabit backbone. Whether you need a fiber port or wired port, the EDS-G509 enables the real-time transmission of massive amounts of video, voice, and data across a network by means of full Gigabit Ethernet. Top network performance, security, and reliability are also assured through the EDS-G509's advanced management features, which include QoS, IGMP snooping/GMRP, VLAN, LACP, SNMP V1/V2c/V3, and RMON.

The EDS-G509 provides long distance transmission through its versatile fiber ports. The versatility comes from the ability to deploy 5 combo ports and 4 fixed TX ports. Multi-mode, single-mode, and long haul scenarios can all be realized with the SFP fiber modules, and in addition, 4 fixed Gigabit TX ports can also be used. As with Moxa's other Ethernet switches, the EDS-G509 series is designed for harsh industrial environments, and performs flawlessly in wide temperature extremes ranging from -40 to 75℃, supports 12/24/48 VDC or 24 VAC redundant dual power inputs, and complies with Class I Division 2 and DNV certifications, making the switch ideal for any tough industrial application.

Product Features

  • 4 10/100/1000BaseT(X) ports plus 5 combo (10/100/1000BaseT(X) or 100/1000BaseSFP slot) Gigabit ports
  • Fiber optic options for extending distance and electrical noise immunity
  • Turbo Ring, RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1w/D) for Ethernet redundancy
  • QoS, IGMP snooping/GMRP, VLAN, LACP, SNMPv1/v2c/v3, RMON supported
  • IEEE 802.1X, HTTPS, and SSH to enhance network security
