Luxul today announced that the company’s 18-port PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P managed Gigabit switch is now available. Offering enterprise-level features at an affordable price point for mid-sized AV applications, the switch delivers high-speed performance while enabling simple network expansion.
The AMS-1816P combines plug-and-play installation, a simple-to-use management interface, QoS and VLAN support and fast switching capacity. The switch also includes self-healing features with port auto-recovery and PoE power scheduling, ensuring system reliability and uptime. Auto-Recovery allows the switch to power cycle unresponsive PoE devices, and PoE Power Scheduling allows switch PoE ports to be turned on or off on a schedule. With 18 ports, the AMS-1816P is designed for applications and system expansions that require a switch with more than the eight ports of Luxul’s AMS-1208P but fewer than the 26 of the AMS-2624P.
For simple network expansion in larger installations, the AMS-1816P is equipped with two 1 Gigabit SFP ports to connect additional switches via fiber-optic cable or twisted-pair copper when using SFP modules. In addition, the switch’s PoE+ ports are perfect for expanding networks utilizing PoE-enabled devices such as touchpanels, VoIP, IP cameras and wireless access points.
Providing clean integration with AV rack systems, the AMS-1816P features rear panel ports; user-selectable, front-facing green or blue LEDs, variable speed fans for quiet operation and a compact design with a depth of 8.25 inches in a 19-inch rack-mount enclosure.
Here are the specs.
