Allied Telesis Makes 10G Migration More Than Attainable

June 07, 2017

The digital transformation taking place is driving network modernization. Starting at the data center and permeating its way into every nook and cranny of the network, fueling the need for multi-gigabit Ethernet at every turn. While the NBASE-T Alliance is playing a large role in defining multi-gigabit market standards, far too many mid-market firms are still unable to adopt the technology, specifically when it comes to 10 gigabit Ethernet solutions.

Many firms fret about the price tag of network modernization, but a recent release from Allied Telesis makes migrating from gigabit to 10 gigabit an affordable journey. The newly announced x550 series of stackable 10 Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 switches alleviates cost, power consumption and port density concerns.

The new family of Ethernet switches offers flexible configurations, and a natural path to 10G. The series supports a flexible stacking model, which allows the user control over speed and media stacking link. On top of offering high performance and flexibility, the x550-18XSPQ works swimmingly when deploying 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless networks, in addition to PoE+ and 2.5G NBASE-T support which provides maximum performance for wireless access points.

“The Internet of Things, distributed computing and application virtualization are driving an increase in connections  and combined data throughput at an unprecedented rate and many organizations are finding it incredibly hard to maintain the necessary infrastructure to keep up,” said James Mustarde, Vice President of Marketing. “Our goal is to help IT managers optimize their spending without compromising on capacity, performance and security, and  the x550 series is ideal in that respect.”

Network modernization is not optional. The priority of supporting today’s digital age must assuage the fears of cost, time and flexibility, as there are options to aid you in your journey, without costing an arm and a leg to do so.

We live in a multi-gigabit world; you’re welcome to join when you’re ready.
