Strengthening core networks in businesses, concert halls, and other sites has recently become a crucial issue that demands action. Customers want to construct systems that provide high-quality video and audio with low latency using IP networks. These switches newly added to the lineup—Yamaha’s first to support 10 Gigabit/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet, are ideal for strengthening medium-sized core networks that need high speed and capacity.
While the SWX3220-16MT standard L3 switch and the SWX2320-16MT intelligent L2 switch inherit the functionality of the current SWR2310 series, these new models also support LAN ports with high speeds exceeding 1 Gbps. Moreover, along with the multiple LAN ports of existing models, these models add SFP/SFP+ slots, allowing customers to select models according to receiving distance and channel requirements. These can be used as both core switches and distribution switches on medium-sized networks.
Network traffic is also anticipated to grow in the professional audio market as rates and channel counts for audio and video media increase. By incorporating our new SWX3220-16MT and SWX2320-16MT models, systems can be configured with L2 switches that transmit audio and video media within single segments, as well as L3 switches to prepare for increased traffic of media that spans multiple segments. Moreover, since these models support IEEE 1588 PTPv2 TC (Transparent Clock), they can also be used to construct systems where high-precision media synchronization is a requirement.
