Allied Telesis Launches Compact x230-GP Series of Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ Switches

ATLANTA, Ga. and SAN JOSE, Calif. - September 29, 2014 - Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks, today announced that it has launched its x230-GP Series of Gigabit Ethernet copper access switches with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+). With a compact design and wide operating temperature range, the x230-GP Series is ideal for connecting and powering access and security devices at the network edge, supporting the growth in wireless networking and digital security. With a choice of 8- and 16-port 10/100/1000T versions with SFP Gigabit uplinks, powerful PoE+, and the ability to operate at up to 50 degrees Celsius, the high-value x230-GP Series is the unbeatable choice for distributed enterprise network solutions.

The x230-GP Series supports Autonomous Management Framework™(AMF), a technology exclusive to Allied Telesis that helps IT administrators reduce their daily workload by automating many common management tasks such as replacing failed units, modifying configurations, upgrading firmware, or extending the network. For large distributed wireless and security networks, the zero-touch device installation and recovery reduces administration time and lowers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The unified command line simplifies administration in large networks with many distributed access switches.

According to Seiichiro Sato, Allied Telesis director of Global Product Marketing, "The x230-GP Series is a compact and powerful addition to our existing range of PoE+ xSeries switches. It is the perfect choice for connecting and remotely powering security devices and supporting large distributed network solutions. The addition of automated management with AMF is the ideal way to reduce network administration costs."
