Westell expands eSmartES managed Ethernet edge switches

Technologies, a provider of broadband products, outside plant
telecommunications equipment and conferencing services, announced the launch of
the ES8100 series of managed Ethernet edge switches, adding to its eSmartES
family of products.

line of Ethernet switches includes the same hardened functionality of Westell‘s
ES8000 series with
the added feature of the company’s SiteVu Secure telemetry technology.

Secure telemetry provides complete visibility to remote site environmental and
equipment status to systems operators and managers, bringing the situational
awareness beyond standard SNMP information.

is essential to users positioning the hardened switches into critical remote
sites including substations, towers, enclosures, cabinets, and other
geographically dispersed or remotely located points on industrial and carrier
networks, as sending out service technicians is expensive.

ES8100 series of managed Ethernet switches also has a compact form, measuring
just 1.4″W x 5.6″D x 5.92″H, so the switch is DIN-rail mountable and will
easily fit into smaller cabinets. Capable of handling stressful workloads, the
ES8100 switch is ideally suited for industrial and heavy-duty outdoor settings
such as power utility substations, video surveillance systems, and traffic
control monitoring.

benefits of SiteVu’s real-time, remote monitoring technology are particularly
critical in the edge applications for which this switch has been designed,”
said Brian Powers, senior vice president and general manager of Westell’s
OSPlant Systems Division.

Secure features include internal temperature monitoring, external temperature probe
input, input voltage level monitoring, A/B voltage monitoring, and two external
telemetry inputs for doors, power supplies and other external sources.
