Luminex Launches 5 New Network Switches at InfoComm 2023


Luminex launched five new network switches at InfoComm 2023 including two new GigaCore switches designed for installation and integration: the GigaCore 10i and GigaCore 16i. In addition, they are debuting the GigaCore 20t and GigaCore 18t  —  both 10 Gb switches  —  and a 1 Gb version as well – the GigaCore 16t  — in booth #5473.

GigaCore 10i and 16i, both half-19” wide with additional flexibility in the form of 100 x 100 mm vesa-spaced mount points, are an excellent choice for fixed installation and integration applications with specific requirements for the port count, available space, mounting, or redundancy. The units can be combined into one rack space to provide a high port count or redundant setup. With port speeds of up to 10 Gigabits and PoE++ options, the newly added models are made to meet the most stringent demands in these applications.

GigaCore 20t, 18t, and 16t are built for touring event production and entertainment professionals who require reliable and robust networking equipment with port speeds of up to 10 Gigabits and PoE++ options. These switches are made to meet the demands of touring, featuring a ruggedized construction and connectivity built to withstand the rigors of transport, set-up, and teardown.

All Luminex GigaCore ethernet switches claim to be dedicated to AV-over-IP networking out of the box. The 10 Gb connectivity options of the GigaCore range allow full network convergence of audio, lighting, intercom, (compressed) video, and more. Pre-configured Quality of Service (QoS), IGMP multicast, and PTPv2 settings will ensure a responsive and highly stable network environment for the most demanding time-critical audio protocols like Dante, AES67, Q-SYS, and many others. Furthermore, AVB/MILAN is supported out of the box on the management group (VLAN) and can operate simultaneously with the aforementioned PTPv2 applications in a converged network on multiple groups (VLANS). And it’s all possible without needing IT knowledge or making compromises.
