Edge-Core Networks Launches the World's First "Push-to-Smart" Gigabit Switch
HSINCHU, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--
Edge-Core Networks Corporation (www.Edge-Core.com),
a provider of solutions that keep information moving and connections
strong for businesses, from SMB and Enterprise to Service Providers and
Carriers, today announces its new product line of Gigabit Ethernet Plus
Switches with the world's first and only "Push-to-Smart" technology.
Rather than using a complicated web interface, this new product line
offers a simple "Push-to-Smart" button to enable the functions most MIS
managers are eager to have at each office front-end site.
"We've heard a lot of complaints from MIS managers over the years.
Network users often plug in their own devices like wireless access
points or wireless routers, which creates additional DHCP servers
causing network shutdowns or data path loops," said Edge-Core Network's
Product Line Manager, Albert Li. "SMC EZ Switch™ SMCGS2410 is the first
switch to use a singlebutton to change your unmanaged switch to smart
switch. DHCP prevention and loop-back detection & prevention provide a
better network environment, saving MIS engineers' troubleshooting
effort." It also provides DoS attack protection to reduce virus attack
opportunities. Environmentally friendly, this new product line of
"Push-to-Smart" switches consumes less power than non-Green Ethernet
switches, without reducing network performance.
Lucille Lu, Marketing Director, said, "We innovatively create additional
useful functions on top of unmanaged switches with a variety of POE and
non-POE ports for different-sized organizations. This new product line
offers the small and medium office users advanced managed features with
a truly one-finger set-up. It's time to change Dumb Switches to Smart
Switches without the hassle of learning a web configuration at a lower
cost than Websmart Switches."
This new "Push-to-Smart" product line will be available in Q4/2013 and
Q1/2014, including 24/16/8-port Gigabit Switch with "Push-to-Smart"
Button and 24/10-port Gigabit PoE Switch with "Push-to-Smart" and 2 SFP
uplink. SMCGS2410 is available for ordering today.
