When it comes to having to choose between a managed or unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch most companies reduce the decision down to a simple factor, that is, how complex is the network it will serve, or how complex is it likely to become. The more complex the network, the more managed switches will be required. As such, the level of control that the end user will need is what will make the decision. A Ruggedcom switch from Siemens is designed to maximise reliability when operating in electrically harsh environments. These highly durable units ensure that communication networks can maintain uninterrupted service within a range of extremely wide-ranging temperatures.  They are specified across the country for critical infrastructure in Utility, transport and industrial applications.

Key benefits associated with managed Ethernet switches

Managed switches use software to improve networks by using software to analyse their performance. They offer advanced control, are used where segmentation and a high bandwidth and network traffic monitoring is required. The term intelligent switch is often used when referring to a managed switch for the following reasons:

1) Optimized Network Traffic

Each port can be analysed to determine how much data is being sent and received from each port. Having the capability to examine traffic flow means that a user can determine how they will control it to optimise it.

2) Management and Troubleshooting

Having a managed switch at your disposal can help monitor the network performance and diagnostics, thereby making data and functionality readings easier to access.

3) Security

Managed switches are a key part of cybersecurity features in a system and ensure that only trusted devices can access the network and only necessary communications flow through.

4) Redundancy

Redundancy and unplanned downtime in industrial applications are best avoided where possible. Managed switches are a practical solution to ensuring the reliability of your systems.

5) Planning for the future

The reality is that you may need to change the network or expand it in future and with a managed switch in place this makes the process easier and allows for changes in advanced networks.
