Axiomtek's 24-port Rack-mountable Hardened Managed Ethernet Switches with 4 Gigabit SFP Ports Featuring Intelligent Redundant α-Ring Technology - iCON-87000 Series

The iCON-87000 managed Ethernet switch with 24-port 10/100base Fast Ethernet plus 4-port Gigabit SFP is an intelligent and high port density solution for device manufacturers to speedily transform existing devices

Taipei, Taiwan, November 4, 2010 - Axiomtek today introduced iCON-87000 19” rack-mountable hardened managed Ethernet switches equipped with up to twenty-four 10/100Base-TX or 100Base-FX/BX ports plus four 10/100/1000Base-TX ports or four Gigabit SFP combo (1000BASE-SX/LX/BX) ports. With a wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +75°C, the IP30-rated iCON-87000 series complies with UL standards, and meets IEC61000-6-2 EMC Generic standard immunity for industrial environment, IEC61850-3 and IEEE1613 for electric utility automation applications, and EN50121-4 safety standard for railway applications. To provide non-stop Ethernet connection, the iCON-87000 series supports intelligent α-Ring technology which provides fast network recovery within 15ms. This brilliant and reliable unit is a special design for power station, building, control room and telecom applications where request high-ports density and performance.

Axiomtek’s hardened managed Ethernet switch, iCON-87000 series, supports advanced features such as IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, port trunking, IGMP snooping, rapid spanning tree, QoS IEEE802.1p/1Q, and port mirroring. Users may choose among SNMP/RMON, web browser, or telnet for remote monitoring and configuration. It also supports rate control, which allows users to set the maximum bandwidth on each port individually. Otherwise, the iCON-87000 switches offer IEEE802.1X port-based network access control for network security. In addition to RSTP/STP for Ethernet redundancy, the iCON-87000 series features redundant ring technology with a recovery time under 15ms.

"The intelligent iCON-87000 24-port hardened managed Ethernet switch series is complied with the standard of IEC61850-3, IEEE1613, and EN50121-4 requirements to guarantee high network availability for harsh applications. Up to four 10/100/1000Base-TX ports or Gigabit SFP combo ports can be chosen to make the construction of a reliable Ethernet network easy. Additionally, this series applies high quality components with advantages of wide operating temperature range and long MTBF to keep your industrial applications running non-stop. With Axiomtek’s iCON-87000 Ethernet switch, users can save on cabling and wiring costs and speedily transform existing devices into more powerful and intelligent," said Philip Wei, Product Manager of Applied Computing & Network Device Business Unit at Axiomtek. For ease of maintenance, the iCON-87000 series features front-facing LED indicators that provide link activity and transmission speed. The rugged device comes equipped with a 100~240 VAC power input. Moreover, the iCON-87000 is packaged in a rugged IP30 metal enclosure with 19" rack-mount mounting option.
