Asanté Technologies has announced their newest line of Gigabit Ethernet switches — the IntraCore 3524 Series. The new line sports flexible connectivity options and can be stacked for simplified network management, as well.
The new switches feature support for Asanté OneView, an integrated management software that enables network administrators to manage the switches through telnet, SNMP or Web browser interfaces. Up to eight switches can be stacked, enabling admins to manage up to 194 ports under a single IP address.
Asanté explained that the IntraCore 3524 Series switches are able to be custom tailored with hardware and software, depending on the needs of the individual network. Copper and fiber GBIC expansion interfaces are available and Gigabit over copper or fiber options are available as well. Fast Ethernet over copper and fiber is also an option.
Expect to see the IntraCore 3524 Base and the 10/10/1000baseT model presently. Other modules and configurations are expected to hit Asanté retailers and system integrators within the next sixty days.
The price for the IntraCore 3524 Base is US$799. That system sports 24 managed 10/100 switched ports with 2 option slots. The 3524-2T model, which fills the 2 option slots with 2 10/100/1000baseT ports, runs $1299. a 3524-2G model is also available, which features 2 ports of 1000baseX GBIC for $199. Other modules are available for $149-$599 depending on configuration — see Asanté’s Web site for more details.
