Luxul today announced “self-healing” capability for select managed network switches. Available via a free upgrade to firmware version 4.1.1 or greater, the new functionality offers integrators two new features — auto-recovery and power scheduling.
Luxul’s self-healing capability is currently available on the company’s 12-port/8 PoE+ AMS-1208P, 26-port/24 PoE+ stackable L2/L3 AMS-4424P, 26-port/24 PoE+ AMS-2624P, 26-port/24 PoE+ XMS-2624P, 52-port PoE+ L2/L3 XMS-5248P and 52-port stackable L2/L3 XMS-7048. With auto-recovery, devices connected to these switches by PoE no longer need to be manually rebooted when they fall offline or become unresponsive; the configuration in the switch triggers PoE-connected devices to reboot automatically. And with power scheduling, integrators can now trigger the switches to power PoE-connected devices on or off based on any schedule they create within the switch.
Self-Healing will also be a standard feature on a number of soon-to-be available Luxul switches, including the 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P and 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P shipping soon.
