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.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Dion Hinchcliffe is an internationally recognized digital expert, bestselling book author, frequent keynote speaker, analyst, futurist, and transformation expert based in Washington, DC. He is currently Chief Strategy Officer at the industry-leading digital strategy and online community solutions firm, 7Summits.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
