Antaira Technologies, a global developer and manufacturer of industrial networking devices and communication solutions for harsh environment applications, had expanded its industrial networking infrastructure family with the introduction of the LMP-1802G-SFPand LMX-1802G-SFP Series.
The LMX-1802G-SFP Series is an ideal choice for campus ring solutions with its two fiber-optic ports supporting an open standard ring technology (ERPS). There are many proprietary ring technologies available but using an open standard like ERPS means that it is possible to have equipment from different manufacturers working together in the ring.
For example, campuses have networking rings consisting of hardened and industrial switches for outdoor environments — including offshore wind sites — that require a wide temperature-rated device. These outdoor devices are able to communicate and send critical information back to an enterprise switch at a datacenter.
Antaira’s LMP-1802G-SFP Series can not only provide a large number of PoE ports (30 Watts) for high-density security applications, but also fiber-optic interfaces for long-range connectivity (1 meter to 100 KM) that is 3 feet to over 60 miles.
The SFP port will not only allow connectivity beyond the 100 meter (300-ft) limitation of copper cable but also permits connectivity through areas where electromagnetic interference may cause issues such as on a factory floor.
