Net Optics releases GigaBit Redundant Port Selector

Aug. 8, 2001--Net Optics Inc., a provider of network security and reliability, has introduced a GigaBit Redundant Port Selector to enable fail-safe backup connections for critical GigaBit Ethernet devices.

Net Optics Inc., a provider of network security and reliability, has introduced a GigaBit Redundant Port Selector to enable fail-safe backup connections for critical GigaBit Ethernet devices. This 1000Base-FX Redundant Port Selector is the latest addition to Net Optics' comprehensive suite of network reliability and security products.

The GigaBit Redundant Port Selector connects two critical GigaBit Ethernet devices, such as a switch and a server, via a main and primary Port. When the primary port does not detect a link signal, a backup port automatically routes traffic through a backup device, such as a secondary server. Easy-to-read LEDs enable quick diagnosis of main, primary and backup port status. The Redundant Port Selector minimizes the number of ports required to ensure network redundancy, thus maintaining GigaBit Ethernet device port availability for other vital network connections.

Net Optics' GigaBit Redundant Port Selector is available in singlemode or multimode models for easy integration with 1000Base-LX or SX networks. Additional features include half or full duplex transmission support at 1000 Mbps for up to 220 meters of transmission distance, and two load-sharing power supplies. If either power supply fails, the remaining power supply immediately assumes the additional load. As with all products in Net Optics' network security and reliability family, the Redundant Port Selector meets all IEEE 802.3 standards, and is equipped with universal power supplies to support global usage.
