Super Micro Computer Inc. has announced additions to its Ethernet switch product line. The company has added a pair of 52-port, 1 GB Ethernet switches. The SSE-G2252 and its companion SSE-G2252P are IEEE 802.3az compliant and offer 1GbE connectivity over 48x RJ45 ports and 4x SFP ports. The SSE-G2252P model is IEEE 802.3at compliant and supports Power over Ethernet (PoE).
The new modules provide a choice of management interfaces using either a Web-based GUI or an industry compatible command-line-interface (CLI). The PoE model supports and makes possible rapid installation of such PoE-based devices as wireless access points for conferences and shows, support for VoIP phones, PoE surveillance cameras, and a myriad of new PoE devices.
Supermicro says its Layer 2 switches undergo “rigorous compliance testing to ensure compatibility with IEEE Ethernet standards.” They are also designed for top-of-rack or standalone applications. They offer cost-effective networking options for data center, cloud computing, HPC, and SMB environments.
“By incorporating the latest Energy Efficient Ethernet technology in our new 1U networking switches we have added another dimension to our ‘We Keep IT Green’ initiative,” says Supermicro president and CEO Charles Liang. “PoE functionality with 30W per port further extends our solutions for SMB applications. These new cost-effective switches offer high density, Layer 2 switching with 52 ports of 1GbE to meet growing IT demands and complement our extensive line of high-performance, high-efficiency server and storage products.”
The SSE-G2252 and SSE-G2252P also offer a full range of popular Ethernet features, like Jumbo Frames, Link Aggregation, VLANs, and Quality of Service. All of this is done in a compact 1U form factor for flexibility in rack-mount installations.
The SSE-G2252 and SSE-G2252P are available now. For more information about Supermicro’s full line of networking products, go to www.supermicro.com/Networking.
