Our ruggedized IE300 Industrial Ethernet switches are built for enduring performance in harsh environments, such as those found in manufacturing, transportation and physical security. Offering high throughput, richfunctionality and advanced security features, IE300 switches deliver the performance and reliability demanded by industrial deployments in the Internet of Things (IoT) age. OverviewThe IE300 Series are wirespeed Layer 3 switches for industrial Ethernet applications. With a wide operating temperature range of between -40°Cand 75°C, they tolerate harsh and demanding environments, such as those found in industrial and outdoor deployment. Device management is provided via Web GUI, SNMP, Telnet, SSH, or Allied Telesis Management Framework™ (AMF). AMF is unique to Allied Telesismanaged devices, offering simplified device provisioning, recovery and firmware upgrade management. PerformanceThe IE300 Series of high performance and cost-effective managed switches meets the high reliability requirements of industrial network operations.These robust switches provide network managers with several key features, using the simple web-based management function, including port-based VLANs, IEEE 802.1p, QoS, port trunking/link aggregation, port mirroring, priority queues, and IEEE 802.1x security support. With support for up to 16K MAC addresses, the IE300 Series is the ideal option forintegrating management into any network solution. Securing the Network EdgeTo ensure data protection, it is important to control network access. Protocols such as IEEE 802.1x port-based authentication guarantee that only known users are connected to the network. Unknown users who physically connect can be segregated into a pre-determined part of thenetwork, offering network guests such benefits as Internet access, while ensuring the integrity of private network data.Gigabit and Fast Ethernet SupportThe IE300 Series SFP ports support both Gigabit and Fast Ethernet Small Form-Factor Pluggables (SFPs). This makes IE300 Series switches ideal for environments where Gigabit fiber switches will be phased in over time. This allows for connectivity to the legacy 100FX hardware until it is upgraded to Gigabit Ethernet. Support for both speeds of SFPs allows organizations to stay within budget as they migrate to faster technologies. High Network Resiliency The IE300 Series supports highlystable and reliable network switching with a recovery time within 50ms. You can customize the IE300 withthe most appropriate mechanismand protocol to prevent network connection failure. Choices include Allied Telesis Ethernet Protection Switched Ring (EPSRing™), and the standard ITU-T G.8032. Configurable Power BudgetOn the AT-IE300-12GP, you can configure the overall power budget andthe power feeding limit on a per-port basis, to establish a close relationship between the power sourcing featurewith the real capabilities of the external Power Supply Unit (PSU).
