Fiber Ethernet Switches Include Gigabit Aggregation Port

GE Security announces that its IFS product division of Newtown, Conn., has added a new feature to its EtherNav D7600 Series of managed 10/100 BAASE-T Ethernet switches. The line now features the option of a multimode optical fiber port for use as the gigabit (Gbps) aggregation port. This is used where a multimode fiber network backbone is installed or where an existing fiber infrastructure is used as a security network.

A gigabit aggregation port allows multiple smaller networks to integrate with a larger one. Therefore, these switches are an essential part of an Ethernet communication network when a local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN) support more than one function. Examples include network video, access control and intrusion. This is a good feature to have when virtual local area networks (VLANS) are used.
