award 3

The latest trend in modern industrial environments is the fast deployment and flexibility of a networking topology while upgrading firmware and setting the configuration of a large number of devices is a challenging job for both IT and SI (System Integrator) professionals. Advantech EKI-7700 series Managed Ethernet Switches embedded with IXM patented technology are the world’s very first series of switches to make networking deployment and configuration more efficient.

Advantech EKI-7700 series Managed Ethernet Switches with IXM patented technology provides engineers with the ability to assign a fixed range of IP address to many devices at the same time, and also provides them with the ability to simultaneously copy the same switch configuration across multiple switches. Once the ‘master’ has been configured, IXM can be launched and within seconds all other IXM compatible switches will be populated with the same settings. This function saves up to 90% of the configuration time not only speeds up the configuration but also ensures that mistakes aren’t made. IXM technology for EKI-7700 series switches provides a cross management and fast deployment function allowing switches to upgrade their firmware and restore configuration more efficiently. As long as you have a single EKI-7700 series managed switch, it can manage both EKI-7700, award winning EKI-5000 ProView series switches, and all IXM support switcjes.

There are total 14 models in the EKI-7700 series, including PoE (Power over Ethernet), Combo, and Fiber Optical models. The PoE models with an increased wattage will support devices up to 30 watts instead of the common 15 watts, meaning that more energy consuming devices can be attached. The EKI-7700 series Managed Ethernet Switches are already implemented many government-own projects in Norway and China.
