SMC Networks Begins Shipping New Ethernet Products

Extended Ethernet Switch and Extended Ethernet Solution integrate with company’s Managed Service Platform.

SMC Networks, a maker of networking solutions for the SMB and enterprise markets, has announced it has begun shipping its new TigerAccess Extended Ethernet Switch and TigerAccess Extended Ethernet solution (VDSL2).

The TigerAccess VDSL2 Extended Ethernet solution–intended for use in multi-unit environments such as hotels and office buildings–enables the deployment of voice, video, and data access, with bandwidth speeds up to 100 Mbps over existing category 1, 2, or 3 wiring.

Created for use in buildings without an Ethernet wiring infrastructure or as a replacement solution for outdated or slow VDSL1 equipment, the TigerAccess VDSL2 Extended Ethernet solution utilizes VDSL2 technology to deliver high-bandwidth network connectivity with data transfer speeds of up to 100 Mbps. It sends to at these rates to support services, such as HDTV streaming, video-on-demand and high-speed Internet access, over existing telephone wiring infrastructure. †

When deployed in conjunction with SMC’s newly-released Managed Service Platform, which enables IT administrators to monitor and manage multiple network infrastructures from a single browser-based application, these new solutions have the potential to expand capabilities–and that could mean profit for SMBs.

The TigerAccess Extended Ethernet Switch features two RJ-21 ports–each containing 24 extended Ethernet ports–two RJ-45 Gigabit uplink ports, a 100BASE-T management port and RJ-45 console port. Based upon the VDSL2 standard, it delivers speeds of up to 100 Mbps to a distance of 800 feet.

The Extended Ethernet CPE delivers an Ethernet data link speed of up to 100 Mbps in full-duplex mode. It also simultaneously supports standard telephone services and easily connects to PC- and Macintosh-based computer systems through a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port. When paired with the Extended Ethernet Switch, the Extended Ethernet CPE enables broadband connectivity without the need for any rewiring.

The SMC TigerAccess Extended Ethernet Switch and Extended Ethernet CPE are both backed by a three-year warranty and 24/7 technical support and are now available worldwide.
