EnGenius Technologies released the EnGenius Cloud ECS2512 and ECS2512FP multi-gigabit switches — aimed at both IT and AV-over-IP applications. Both the EnGenius Cloud ECS2512 ($499) and ECS2512FP ($749) multi-gigabit switches include a full-featured layer 2+ switching capacity (120G), eight high-speed 2.5G ports, and four dual-speed 10G SFP+ slots for fiber uplinks. These switches deliver high speeds that equipment like network-attached storage (NAS) devices, routers and workstations demand.
Meanwhile, the more advanced ECS2512FP model supports IEEE 802.3bt Power-over-Ethernet, allowing it to transfer 60 watts of power to each port (from a budget of 240 watts) to such power-hungry devices as Wi-Fi 6 access points, PTZ cameras or AV controllers.
EnGenius switches also include the company’s subscription-free EnGenius Cloud that allows IT technicians to monitor system metrics in real-time, display network topology, troubleshoot problems and analyze network behavior.
The new EnGenius Cloud ECS2512 are already shipping.
