Connectivity hardware maker
announced today that its IntraCore 65120 Gigabit Ethernet switches are now shipping. The new enterprise-strength Ethernet switches start at under US$400 per port.
Designed for high-speed networks where maximum performance and flexibility are key, the IntraCore 65120 sports a 38.4 Gigabit per second backplane. The 65120 has support for real-time multimedia (voice, video and data) over Ethernet, Voice over IP (VoIP), IP multicast and 802.1p packet priority classification.
The IntraCore 65120 can also be configured with Gigabit Interface Converters (GBICs) for maximum flexibility. The IC 65120-12G, for example, is a 12-port all-GBIC switch that can be configured with 1000SX, 1000LX or 1000TX GBIC interfaces. Asanté explained that this flexibility means that users can configure their IntraCore switches to mix and match different network configurations.
The IntraCore 65120 features high-density, auto-sensing Ethernet ports and GBIC interfaces. The system also sports built-in Telnet support and Web-based management that enables users to perform chassis and port-level control management and monitoring, via a terminal window, console or SNMP management software.
The IntraCore 65120 ships in two different configurations: the 65120-12G sports twelve 1000BaseX Gigabit GBIC interfaces (estimated retail price of $3,399), while the 65120-2G sports ten 10/100/1000 switched ports plus two 1000BaseX GBICs for $3,499.
