Apcon Extends Advanced Switching Architecture Into INTELLAPATCH 144 and INTELLAPATCH 64

Advanced Software and Increased Port Density Bolster Modular Physical Layer Matrix Switch

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Apcon, Inc. ( http://www.apcon.com/ ), worldwide manufacturer of layer-1 switches and application software expanded its industry-leading INTELLAPATCH(TM) physical layer matrix switch family by introducing the INTELLAPATCH 144 and INTELLAPATCH 64 chassis, which feature high port density, as well as embedded control and management software capabilities.

The INTELLAPATCH 144 and INTELLAPATCH 64 are compact, modular chassis that combine with Apcon's protocol-specific and multi-protocol blades to provide wire-once, any-to-any, non-blocking layer-1 switching technology for automating test labs or sharing monitoring and analysis equipment in enterprise networks.

In both chassis, an embedded Web browser GUI allows port-to-port connections to be electronically managed and controlled. The switches can be controlled remotely across any platform, using any operating system that supports a Web browser, including Windows, Linux, Solaris, and others.

An embedded programming interface supports scripting languages, including Java, TCL, PHP, PERL, and others. To increase flexibility and to meet programmers' needs, advanced capabilities include Telnet, advanced scripting tools, and secure management interfaces such as SSL and SSH. Additional features include simultaneous access by multiple users, enhanced logging features, simple remote firmware upgrade support, and dual 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet control ports.

"The new INTELLAPATCH 144 and INTELLAPATCH 64 chassis strengthen Apcon's leadership position in the physical layer matrix switch industry," said Richard Rauch, president and CEO of Apcon. "Not only has Apcon added new management capabilities, but we have provided a compact, ergonomic form factor that saves valuable rack space in customers' operation environments."

The new INTELLAPATCH 144 and 64 chassis provide higher port density without compromising port accessibility. Both modular chassis are configured with one-inch height blades that are narrower than Apcon's legacy blades. The INTELLAPATCH 144 chassis (6U) can be populated with up to nine blades for a maximum of 144 ports, and the INTELLAPATCH 64 chassis (3U) can be populated with up to four blades for a maximum of 64 ports. Each chassis supports a wide variety of protocol-specific and multi-protocol blades, enabling physical layer switching for 1-, 2-, 4-, and 10 Gb/s Fibre Channel, Ethernet from 10 Mb/s to 10 Gb/s, T1/E1/J1, DS3/E3/STS-1, SONET/SDH, and FDDI.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.
