Managed switched priced for small to midsized jobs
DRAPER, Utah — Luxul, the leading innovator of IP networking solutions for AV integrators, today announced that the company’s 18-port PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P managed Gigabit switch is now available for purchase. Offering enterprise-level features at an affordable price point for mid-sized AV applications, the switch delivers high-speed performance while enabling simple network expansion.
“A number of recently announced Luxul products are going to become available in early 2019, and we’re excited to add to this with the AMS-1816P,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “For CI integrators, the switch not only provides unmatched power and functionality at a great price point, but by enabling simple network expansion, it gives them the flexibility and scalability to tackle installations of any size with ease.”
The AMS-1816P combines plug-and-play installation, a simple-to-use management interface, QoS and VLAN support, and fast switching capacity. The switch also includes Self-Healing features with port Auto-Recovery and PoE Power Scheduling, ensuring system reliability and uptime. Auto-Recovery allows the switch to power cycle unresponsive PoE devices, and PoE Power Scheduling allows switch PoE ports to be turned on or off on a schedule. With 18 ports, the AMS-1816P is ideal for applications and system expansions that require a switch with more than the eight ports of Luxul’s AMS-1208P but fewer than the 26 of the AMS-2624P.
For simple network expansion in larger installations, the AMS-1816P is equipped with two 1 Gigabit SFP ports to connect additional switches via fiber-optic cable or twisted-pair copper when using SFP modules (sold separately). In addition, the switch’s PoE+ ports are perfect for expanding networks utilizing PoE-enabled devices such as touchpanels, VoIP, IP cameras, and wireless access points.
Providing clean integration with AV rack systems, the AMS-1816P features rear panel ports; user-selectable, front-facing green or blue LEDs; variable speed fans for quiet operation; and a compact design with a depth of 8.25 inches in a 19-inch rack-mount enclosure.
