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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
