These new offerings are poised to elevate performance and scalability across diverse sectors, from small and medium-sized businesses to large-scale network providers.

The ECS1100 series, including ECS1100-5P and ECS1100-10HP, represents a cutting-edge product line of Lite-L2 managed switches, boasting an unparalleled PoE budget and robust surge protection, making it perfect for high-power devices and CCTV deployment. Small but complete in every detail, the ECS1100 series offers comprehensive solutions with 5 to 10 ports and PoE capabilities ranging from 120W to 250W, making it the most cost-effective prime choice in managed PoE switches for small offices, coffee shops, campuses, and more.

For those seeking high-speed connectivity, the ECS4150 series is your go-to choice. The ECS4150-54T and ECS4150-54P are Gigabit Ethernet access switches equipped with six 25G SFP28 uplinks, ideal as high-performance Gigabit access switches with 1 Gigabit downlinks that offer enhanced performance and capabilities for a better user experience. Tailored for ISPs, MSOs, and cloud edge access, they are also perfect for SMBs, enterprises, and campus networks.

Feature Highlights:

  • 802.3bt High Power PoE

ECS1100-10HP and ECS4150-54P support 802.3bt PoE, enabling power to be supplied to multiple high-power devices such as access points, VoIP phones, surveillance cameras, IoT devices, and more.

  • Effortless PoE Scheduler

The PoE Scheduler allows you to specify the amount of time that power is delivered to a PoE port, reducing power consumption, saving energy, and making it easy to reboot PoE devices periodically.

  • Intelligent PD Alive Checking

The PD-Alive checking is ideal for IP surveillance networks, it can automatically check the connection status of real-time PDs (powered devices) and re-start the PDs when the system detects network connectivity problems, ensuring hassle-free power consumption monitoring, and enhancing network reliability.

  • PoE Extend Mode

The PoE Extend Mode provides an extended power and data delivery distance of up to 250m for PoE devices such as CCTV and IoT devices in large areas while maintaining a stable 10Mbps speed.

  • Robust Surge Protection

Built with 6KV Ethernet port surge protection and 4KV DC input surge protection to avoid damage to the switch and connected devices, such as outdoor IP cameras, access points, and other PoE PDs connected to the network.

  • Multiple Management Options

Support for multiple management options – CLI, web GUI, SNMP, and Edgecore ecCLOUD. With Edgecore ecCLOUD, the IT administrator can centrally manage all Edgecore switches by bulk configuration of automatic VLAN configuration and synchronization, port security, and power management, reducing deployment time and ensuring network reliability.
