The iPECS ES Series offers eco-friendly features and includes the ES-1000 family of unmanaged switches.
Voice and data communications solutions provider LG-Ericsson
USA announced the
availability of its iPECS ES series of Ethernet switches for SMBs.
The company's Ethernet Switch iPECS ES series solutions are backed by 24/7
technical support and a limited lifetime warranty and are now available in
North America via LG-Ericsson VARs.
The iPECS ES series includes unmanaged (ES-1000 series), advanced smart
(ES-2000/2000G series) and fully managed (ES-3000/3000G) Ethernet switches. The
switches are designed to deliver scalable network infrastructures that support
data and voice applications. They incorporate plug-and-play capabilities
and are managed using an intuitive Web interface. To enhance network security,
features such as Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS)
authentication and multilayer filtering are built into the feature set.
All ES-series switches feature auto-negotiation, auto-MDI/MDIX and an
at-a-glance tri-colored status LED. In addition, the switches support
LG-Ericsson's Unified Device Manager (UDM), which enables network
administrators to configure and manage multiple switches across the network.
The eco-friendly iPECS ES series switches also incorporate green Ethernet
technology to help users save on energy costs, including the ability to detect
link status and power down unused or inactive ports, and adjust signal strength
based upon cable length.
"The iPECS ES series Ethernet switches are ideal solutions for
businesses that demand performance, scalability, robust feature sets and
reliability to support the ever-increasing demands for advanced network-enabled
applications in the SMB and enterprise," said S.B. Mun, CEO
of LG-Ericsson USA. "The ES-series switches, which were specifically
designed to support the advanced QoS [quality of service] and high-performance
requirements demanded by voice applications, work seamlessly with our expansive
family of voice communications solutions. Combining our world-class voice platforms
with the iPECS ES switch family positions LG-Ericsson as the go-to provider
that can deliver an end-to-end voice and data network infrastructure for
businesses of all sizes."
The iPECS ES series switches support VOIP and unified communications (UC)
platforms with L2/L3 QoS. Prioritization of data is accomplished by
classifying packets into one of four different priority queues and serving each
packet in the queues using Weighted Round Robin (WRR) or Strict Priority
Queuing (SPQ) methods. PoE support for 802.3af and 802.3at is designed to
maximize the flexibility of deploying PoE-enabled voice terminals, wireless
access points and video cameras.

ES-3026P: 24 10/100BaseTX with PoE on all ports
and 2-gigabit combo uplinks (SFP/RJ-45)
