Industrial switch meets increasing bandwidth needs

Designed for large-scale industrial networks, the MSP40 is a Gigabit Ethernet layer, three-switch from Belden. It features 28Gbit speed ports, more than other modular compact switches on the market, says the company. The interchangeable ports enable data speeds up to 2.5Gbit.

It is modular in design, so that modules can be swapped to meet current and future data transmission speeds. Today’s single Gbit and 2.5Gbit speeds are expected to be 10Gbit, and this switch does require the purchase of new hardware in order to adapt, says the company.

The MSP40 switch is small with a rugged casing makes it suitable for applications that have limited space, such as along the trackside. It is also suitable for applications that require more power, such as pan-tilt-zoom cameras. The PoE Plus (PoE+) module offers an additional 120W, when needed, says the company. All modules on the MSP40 switch are hot-swappable on a live network, allowing for more uptime during network maintenance or upgrades, as well as design flexibility.
