TKH Security Solutions released its new Siqura XSNet Ethernet switch line. The XSNet 3000 and XSNet 4000 series provides a complete offering of managed/unmanaged switches and media convertors. This series offers hardened units for operation under extreme conditions as well as a selection of powering options, including PoE. Additionally, the XSNet 3000 / 4000 line includes optional SFP (or mini GBIC) interfaces that enable these devices to transmit Ethernet/IP signals directly over fiber optic, Cat 5, or coax cabling.

The hardened XSNet C4000 series offers a robust solution for reliable operation under harsh conditions, such as ones found in transportation, traffic, and industrial applications. The switches are certified for traffic (NEMA TS-2) and railway (EN50121-4) applications.

The line includes a whole range of managed switches: The XSNet 4000 units support a complete set of open standard networking features, such as redundant ring (STP/RSTP), multicast support (IGMP snooping), port authentication (802.1x), and the 802.1Q VLAN Trunking Protocol. Each managed switch is optimized for advanced networking environments, such as IP video surveillance.

The mini GBIC or SFP slots of the XSNet 3000 / 4000 series switches are compatible with the Siqura ECO-Plug and the XSNet SFP fiber optic plugs. These small form-factor pluggable transceivers (SFP) can be inserted directly into the XSNet network interface slot and allow for the transmission of Ethernet/IP signals over coax or fiber optic cabling. TKH Security Solutions is the only manufacturer in the industry to offer an integrated adaptor for Ethernet over coax.
