Wed, 2015-05-13 06:00 -- SCC Staff

Council Lead Partner Allied Telesis has expanded its line of network distribution switches, offering new options for cities, schools and hospitals. The company is offering five new switches covering agencies of all sizes, ranging from cities and hospitals to schools.

The Allied Telesis x930 Series simplifies the management of wired and wireless networks, bringing them together on a common platform. Models are available to serve as core or distribution switches, depending on the size of the organization.

The new switches support the Allied Telesis Management Framework, which helps IT departments lower their operational costs. The technology automates a number of common management tasks, including extending the network, modifying configurations, upgrading firmware and replacing failed units. Further, they offer zero-touch installation and recovery, further reducing administrative costs.

The switches can handle 10 gigabit uploads, ideal for high-performance networks. Up to eight switches in the x930 series can be stacked, serving as a high-speed resilient backbone for distributed applications or dual-core disaster recovery.
