TP-Link which has taken concerted efforts for addressing the growing small and medium business (SMB) market with networking gears, has introduced JetStream T1700 series of affordable 10-Gigabit switches in the Indian market. The series includes the T1700X-16TS Full 10-Gigabit Smart Switch, and the T1700G-28TQ Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch with 10G Uplink, which both provide high levels of performance, scalability, and cost-effectiveness that SMBs require from their 10G networking solutions.
“The increased adoption of virtualization and cloud-based applications, VoIP, video streaming, and IP surveillance by SMBs today is driving the need for faster, high-bandwidth switches. Both switches are backward-compatible, offer port configuration for server and switch aggregation along with its L2+ features and basic layer-3 routing to build an ideal SMB network”, Said Sanjay Sehgal, V.P – SMB & Telecom Business.
Until recently, 10-Gigabit connectivity was available only in the expensive fiber based technology that supports high-speed access to the network backbone or data center environment. But now, the 10-Gigabit technology is becoming more common and affordable. Low-Latency, Line-Rate 10G Copper Base-T is backward compatible with Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet and can automatically negotiate between higher and lower speed connections. Most importantly, 10GBase-T provides a cost-effective method for migrating from your current network to 10G Ethernet by utilizing existing cables—CAT5e/CAT6 RJ-45 short connections (up to 55m) and CAT6A/CAT7 connections (up to 100m). This reduces cabling complexity and ultimately results in significant savings for customers.
The T1700X-16TS features 12 10GBase-T RJ45 ports and four dedicated SFP+ fiber slots, which can support up to 320Gbps of combined switching bandwidth. This provides great resiliency, relieves congestion associated with bandwidth-intensive applications, and guarantees smooth data transmission.
The T1700X-16TS is available at MRP of Rs 199,999; while the T1700G-28TQ is available at MRP of Rs 29,500.
