For industries that implement a powerful infrastructure, a common issue that arises is that communication lines often can’t keep up with the high level of data processing power that the advanced technology in the network requires. In such cases, the network is effectively crippled by the power limitations of the network.
Until recently, a 1G backbone was sufficient for most industrial applications, but as the number of networked devices and the bandwidth requirements for these devices continues to grow, a 1G backbone is proving to be insufficient for more and more industrial applications, leading to the requirement for an industrial 10G switch.
While a fiber optic backbone is typically viewed as the solution for such a problem, fiber optic lines are often highly expensive to install and provide little flexibility among other limiting factors. In most instances, raw data-processing power is the most optimal resolution. Such power can often be provided by an industrial 10 gigabit Ethernet switch. To learn more about what an industrial 10 gigabit Ethernet switch is, continue reading.
What an industrial 10 gigabit Ethernet switch is
An industrial 10 gigabit Ethernet switch is a multiport network bridge that serves as a linking point between an infrastructure’s backbone and the slower devices in the network that must connect to it. Such switches can provide impressive data speeds of up to 10 billion bits per second and are typically interconnected to the core or main network switch through fiber optics.
Applications for an industrial 10 gigabit Ethernet switch
Industrial 10 gigabit Ethernet switches are used to process massive amounts of data. As such, they provide an ideal power and data processing solution for industries that function on a large scale or employ technology that demands high data-processing power, such as:
- The Internet of Things (IoT)
- HD livestream cameras
- Thermal cameras
- Intelligent monitoring
- High-definition surveillance
- Highly populated Wi-Fi areas
