iwNetworks announces availability of four new L2 and L3 Network Switches.

iwNetworks is pleased to announce its SDN Series switches. Two 1GbE and two 10GbE models are being released. Based on Broadcom chipsets, these switches bring high performance, quality, and reliability to the network infrastructure. The SDN 8252 and SDN 8254S L2/L3 switches are part of iwNetworks' managed switch line. Based on Broadcom's Firebolt 3 chipset, both models feature 48 1GbE ports, 4 10GbE SFP+ uplinks and out-of-band management. The SDN 8252 has one of the lowest entry costs for a product in its class. The SDN 8254S adds dual air flow and load sharing redundant power supplies. The 10GbE SDN 8948 and SDN 8952S models are for Top-of-Rack (TOR), wiring closets, data center aggregation, or network core deployment. Each has 48 10GbE SFP+ ports and comprehensive management tools. The SDN 8948 is Trident based while the SDN 8952S uses the Trident+ chipset. Uplinks are either through 4 10GbE SFP+ ports (SDN 8948) or through 4 40GbE QSFP+ (SDN 8952S). "We are pleased to bring new levels of price/performance to the network with our SDN Series switches," said Company Vice President Mark Hayfield. "Now network administrators need not sacrifice performance and reliability because of budgetary constraints."
