EnGenius Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance, versatile networking and telecommunications solutions for businesses and consumers, today announced the expansion of their new Electron Series of business-class mix-and-match networking products with the launch of two new high-performance Gigabit PoE+ switches.
The new EnGenius EGS7252FP 48-Port Gigabit PoE+ L2 Managed Switch with 4 Dual-Speed SFP and EGS7228FP 24-Port Gigabit PoE+ L2 Managed Switch with 4 Dual-Speed SFP are ideal for establishing new or expanding existing network infrastructures in start-up companies, small businesses or larger enterprises. The new high-performance switches are cost-effective solutions for adding or expanding wireless networking capabilities, IP camera surveillance deployments, or VoIP devices, and deliver the business-class network performance and reliability required to support growing businesses and their bandwidth-intensive applications.
“The new high-density Gigabit PoE switches give small- and medium-sized businesses cost-effective, high-performance solutions for quickly deploying networks of PoE-enabled wireless access points or IP cameras,” said Erez Zevulunov, Director and President at M.I.T. Consulting. “These managed switches provide a viable network infrastructure option for businesses that demand the performance of an enterprise-class solution, but do not have the budget for solutions from the typical enterprise networking vendors.”
High-Performance, Feature-Rich Layer 2 Gigabit Switches Ease Deployment of PoE-Enabled Devices
The EnGenius EGS7252FP 48-Port Gigabit PoE+ L2 Managed Switch with 4 Dual-Speed SFP and EGS7228FP 24-Port Gigabit PoE+ L2 Managed Switch with 4 Dual-Speed SFP are full-featured Gigabit Ethernet switches with comprehensive Layer 2 switching capabilities and PoE support for connecting and delivering data at Gigabit speeds to computers, VoIP phones, access points, and IP cameras throughout the office. The switches combine a robust feature-set with business-class performance and reliability, and do not require recurring subscription, licensing, or maintenance costs, delivering a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to competing solutions.
The EGS7252FP and EGS7228FP incorporate four SMP slots to support optional fiber uplinks for connectivity over longer distances, uplink redundancy and failover. The switches, which can easily be added to an existing rack of L2 and L3 switches and managed via an intuitive Web interface or SNMP, support 802.1Q VLANs for improved convergence and bandwidth utilization and QoS to optimize the performance of latency-sensitive applications such as video conferences and VoIP calls.
The EGS7252FP features 48 Gigabit PoE+ ports and supports IEEE802.3at/af with a total PoE budget of 740W to provide power and fast data speeds to PoE-enabled devices. The switch also supports IEEE802.1X and RADIUS Authentication, Access Control List / Port Security, IEEE802.3ad Link Aggregation, and IGMP and MLD snooping for advanced multicast featuring. The EGS7252FP is now available at a MSRP of $1,299.
The EGS7228FP provides 24 Gigabit ports and supports IEEE802.3at/af with a total PoE budget of 370W. The switch supports 802.1X port-based authentication, IGMP Snooping v1/v2/v3 and IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation. The EGS7228FP is available now at a MSRP of $799.
“The addition of the new switches to our Electron Series family provides businesses with the increased port density required for deploying or expanding wireless network infrastructures or rollouts of PoE devices such as VoIP phones or IP cameras,” stated Brian Watt, Product Marketing Manager at EnGenius. “Our expanding family of switching products exceed the performance of enterprise-level networking brands for a much lower cost providing a very attractive price-to-performance ratio.”
The new EGS7252FP and EGS7228FP Gigabit PoE+ Switches are covered by one-year limited warranties and are available in North America via authorized retailers, distributors and value-added resellers.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
