Belden Industrial Switch Enables High-Speed Communication to Meet Increasing Bandwidth Needs
MSP40 Switch Offers Flexible Port Options to Transmit Data Reliably at Up to 10 Gigabit Speeds
St. Louis, Missouri - May 28, 2019 - Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has developed a new module for its MSP40 platform. With the new MSM60 module the MSP40 Full Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 switch now features the option for 10 Gigabit uplink ports to meet increasing bandwidth needs.
“Reliable, high-speed data transmission isn’t an option any more, and with more data than ever before, industrial networks need to keep up with the evolving bandwidth requirements,” said Thomas Rodenbusch-Mohr, product manager at Belden. “We designed the MSP40 switch with modularity in mind, so that it would be easy to swap in different modules to meet current and future data transmission speeds. MSP40 has supported Single Gigabit and 2.5 Gigabit speeds since its introduction in 2017, but we know 10 Gigabit speeds are around the corner. Due to the flexible nature of our device existing MSP40 installations can now be easily upgraded to support 10 Gigabit uplinks.”
The MSP40 switch offers a unique combination of features – all designed to help network engineers and system integrators keep pace with growing bandwidth requirements in large industrial networks.
“Its small size and rugged casing make the MSP40 ideal for industrial applications that have limited space, such as along the trackside or in underground mines. Now, they can benefit from a high-performance switch that can handle their extreme environments, while also reliably transmitting data at higher speeds than ever before,” added Thomas Rodenbusch-Mohr.
The MSP40 switch supports also a module for applications that require more power, such as pan-tilt-zoom cameras. The Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) module easily offers an additional 120 watts of power, when needed. All modules on the MSP40 switch are hot swappable on a live network, allowing for total flexibility and more uptime during times of network maintenance or upgrades.
