Lantronix’s New 24-Port Managed Gigabit Ethernet PoE++ Switch Enhances Its Network Switching Portfolio
Ideal for intelligent LED lighting and smart building IoT applications, the new high-performance switch powers more applications from a single device
IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 1, 2022 — Lantronix Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global provider of secure turnkey solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and the Intelligent IT market, today announced its powerful new Managed Gigabit Power-over-Ethernet ++ (PoE++) Switch (SM24TBT2DPB). This switch, with its 90 watts per port, offers increased efficiency in its design with more POE lighting capacity offered per switch port. This new Lantronix high-performance, enterprise-grade Layer 2 PoE++ managed switch is ideal for intelligent LED lighting systems as well as smart building IoT applications, including access control, digital signage, wireless access points (WAPs) and IP surveillance systems.
The total installed base of connected building automation systems (including LED lighting systems, access control, IoT applications etc.) in Europe and North America reached an estimated 22.7 million systems in 2021. Berg Insight forecasts that the installed base will grow at a CAGR of 14.9 percent in the two regions to reach 34.4 million connected building automation systems in 2024. Berg Insight furthermore estimates that the building automation market in Europe and North America generated revenues of close to $31.8 billion in 2021. The market will grow at a CAGR of 15.0 percent to $48.4 billion in 2024.
“With a deep understanding of the power and connectivity needs of smart applications such as intelligent LED lighting, smart buildings and IP surveillance systems, we are continuously expanding the capabilities of our Power-over-Ethernet switches,” said Paul Pickle, CEO of Lantronix Inc. “Lantronix’s new PoE++ switch powers more IoT applications from a single device, delivering secure connectivity from a trusted source with global distribution and support.”
The new switch, with 52 Gbps switching capacity, provides (24) 10/100/1000Mbps copper ports with IEEE 802.3bt PoE++ capability and (2) additional 100/1000Mbps dual speed SFP/RJ-45 combo ports. The SM24TBT2DPB complies with the latest IEEE 802.3af/at/bt PoE standards and supplies up to 90 Watts per port. It can provide full PoE++ output on all 24 ports when equipped with the dual hot-swappable PS-ACDC-1200 power supplies.
Utilizing PoE++ switches for Intelligent LED lighting leverages low-voltage power for lower lighting installation costs and provides a data connection that makes it possible to manage the lights controlling the on/off, brightness, color temperature and hue for luminaires. For IP surveillance applications, the switch supplies power and data to high-power cameras such as PTZ IP and thermal cameras.
Hot-swappable dual power modules enable scaling of PoE power, depending on need, and provide redundancy to eliminate system downtime. The soft reboot feature on the new switch allows a warm reboot of the switch without affecting the PoE output to the attached powered devices, thereby providing continuous lighting even during firmware upgrades.
