Edge Switches form the major components in a LAN environment. With a large number of connections and processing on all the network ports, it is likely to lose data packets when the node delivers the data. To evade this circumstance, an Edge Switch is made to process the traffic on all ports without a minute loss of even a few data packets and simultaneously ensure the forwarding capacity. Edge Switches endow with an ample variety of communication technologies together with Integrated Services Digital Networks (ISDNs), frame relays, T1 circuits, and ATMs.
Ubiquiti Networks present the advanced Edge Switch that has managed PoE and intelligent support for the growing networks. The total non-blocking throughput ranges up to 26 Gbps for 24-port models and up to 70 Gbps for 48-port models. The ultimate features such as an easy-to-use and straightforward communication, make these Edge Switches a definitive choice to opt for any business facilities. IP-based surveillance systems benefit the most by Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology.
The additional featuring of Gigabit Switch with the Small-form-factor (SFP) enables the user to unite an extensive assortment of fiber and Ethernet cables in order to pull out switching functionality all the way through the network. Advanced security like IPS and malware-scanning to wireless LAN features tow along with the SFP in the picture.
Thevarious Edge Switches are categorized into five different models, each featuring two SFP ports. The models ES-24-250W and ES-24-500W are available with 24 Gigabit RJ45 Ports while the ES-48-500W and ES-48-750W are available in 48 ports. The Edge Switch supports all the extensive qualities such as Layer-2 switching features and protocols and Layer-3 routing capability along with an advanced User Interface. It is simpler than ever to connect an end user's LAN to an ISP's network or backbone without any hassle when destination stations are outside attached LANs.
