The LMP-2602G-SFP and LMX-2602G-SFP series Ethernet-ready equipment is well-suited for harsh industrial environments. These reliable devices support high-density Ethernet port connectivity, wide bandwidth and long-distance data transmission. Some applications require using ring technology for complete redundant network designs. The series uses ERPS or G.8032, which is an open ring architecture. This permits the use of various switches from Antaira or other manufacturers such as Cisco that participate in the ring. Open standards give the network architect the flexibility to design the most efficient network without being tied to one manufacturer.
