Lantech EN50155 Ethernet Switches Deliver Future Speed for Rolling Stock Applications

Lantech Communications Global Inc. is pleased to announce a series of EN50155 Ethernet switches as the key networking infrastructure device of their total solution for rolling stock applications.

Ken Woolley, UK & Ireland sales of Lantech: The series brings the 10G speed to the market for huge bandwidth requirement with rugged hardware design and innovative software features. We believed that the series is future-ready to satisfy our customers who are looking for stable and efficient data transmission for now and in the future.

EN50155 Ethernet Switch

Up to 6-port 10G Copper / Q-ODC Fiber Uplinks

Lantech 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch is a high performance L2+ Managed Ethernet switch with up to 16 10/100/1000T M12 connectors + up to 6 10G copper / Q-ODC fiber uplinks which provides L2 wire speed and advanced security function for 10G network aggregation deployment.

Up to 16 PoE at/af Ports with Advanced PoE Management

Compliant with 802.3af/at standard, the Lantech 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch is able to feed each PoE port up to 30 Watt. The Ethernet switch supports advanced PoE management including PoE detection and scheduling. PoE detection can detect if the connected PD hangs then restart the PD; PoE scheduling is to allow pre-set power feeding schedule upon routine time table. Each PoE ports can be Enabled/disabled, get the voltage, current, Watt, and temperature info displayed on WebUI.

Optional Smart Bypass Protection on 10G Ports

The bypass relay is set to bypass the switch to the next one when power is off to prevent network disruption. Lantech bypass caters to remain in bypass mode until the switch is completely booting up when power is back to avoid another network lost. Smart bypass can be activated when switch is hanged or LTDP time out.

Innovative LTDP** (Link Train Discovery Protocol) to Assign Proper IP Address when Car Changes as well as Inherit Configuration in Replaced Switch

With port-based DHCP server, LTDP** allows Lantech EN50155 switch series in single ring discover the current IP addresses and ensure the replaced switch to assign the same IP address and configuration based on location.

Miss-Wiring Avoidance, Repowered Auto Ring** Restore, Loop Protection

Lantech 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch also embedded several features for strong and reliable network protection in an easy and intuitive way. When the pre-set ring configuration failed or looped by miss-wiring, the Ethernet switch is able to alert with the LED indicator and disable ring automatically. Repowered auto ring restore function (node failure protection) ensures the switches in a ring to survive after power breakout is back. The status can be shown in NMS when each switch is back. Loop protection is also available to prevent the generation of broadcast storm when a dumb switch is inserted in a closed loop connection.

EN50155 Ethernet SwitchSupports Optional PXE / BootP to Boot-Up Switch with Latest or Certain Firmware

It supports optional PXE / BootP protocol that can boot up switch with latest or certain firmware obtaining from the server and act as DHCP option 82 or Port based DHCP function to offer the same IP addresses on port base or VLAN base to devices.

DHCP Option 82 & Port Based, Mac Based DHCP, Option66, IPv6 DHCP Server**

DHCP option 82 and Port based DHCP function can offer the same IP address on port base or VLAN base where there is need to replace the new device connecting to Lantech switches to avoid any network disruption. The built-in DHCP Option 82 server offers the convenience of policy setting on the switch. Mac based DHCP server function assigns an IP address according to its MAC address to include dumb switches in DHCP network. DHCP option 66 is also supported. Optional IPv6 address resolution for DHCP server can be supported.

User Friendly GUI, Auto Topology Drawing

The user friendly UI, innovative auto topology drawing and topology demo makes Lantech 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch much easier to get hands-on. The complete CLI enables professional engineer to configure setting by command line.

Enhanced G.8032 Ring, 8/16**MSTI MSTP; MRP Ring

Lantech 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch features enhanced G.8032 ring which can be self-healed in less than 20ms for single ring topology protection covering multicast packets. It also supports various ring topologies that covers double ring, multi-chain (under enhanced ring), train ring**, basic ring, multiple-VLAN ring** and auto-ring** by easy setup than others. The innovative auto-Ring** configurator (auto mode**) can calculate owner and neighbor in one step. It supports MSTP that allows RSTP over VLAN for redundant links with 8/16** MSTI. MRP (Media Redundancy Protocol) can be supported for industrial automation networks.

QinQ*, QoS and GVRP Supported

It supports the QinQ*, QoS, GVRP for large VLAN segmentation.

IGMPv3, GMRP, Router Port, Static Multicast Forwarding and Multicast Ring Protection

The unique multicast protection under enhanced G.8032 ring can offer immediate self-recovery instead of waiting for IGMP table timeout. It also supports IGMPv3, GMRP, router port and static multicast forwarding binding by ports for video surveillance application.

Editable Configuration File; USB Port for Upload/Download Configuration; InstaView** for Mass Deployment

The configuration file of Lantech 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch can be exported and edited with word processor for the other switches configuration with ease. The USB port can upload/download the configuration from/to USB dongle. With optional InstaView, the configuration files can be mass backup, mass-editable deployed and auto upgrading firmware in batch make maintenance easy.

Event Log & Message; 2 DI + 2DO; Factory Default Button

In case of event, the 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch is able to send an email** & SMS** text message to pre-defined addresses as well as SNMP Traps out immediately. It provides 2DI and 2DO. When disconnection of the specific port was detected; DO will activate the signal LED to alarm. DI can integrate the sensors for events and DO will trigger the alarm while sending alert information to IP network with email and traps. The factory reset button can restore the setting back to factory default.

Environmental Monitoring for Switch Inside Information

The environmental monitoring can detect switch overall temperature, total PoE load, voltage and current where can send the SNMP traps, email** and SMS** alert when abnormal.

Dual WV Input with Max PoE Budget

The WV model of 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch accept 16.8~137.5VDC dual input and can feed 54V output for PoE feeding at max 120W PoE budget. WVI model accept 16.8~137.5VDC dual input and can feed 54V output for PoE feeding with max 80W budget.

EN50155, EN45545-2, EN61373 Verification; IEC 61375-2-5 Compliance*; High ESD Protection

The 10G EN50155 Ethernet switch also provides ±2000V EFT and ±6000V ESD contact protection, which can reduce unstable situation caused by power line and Ethernet. Lantech Ethernet switch passed serious tests under extensive Industrial EMI and Safety standards. With EN45545-2 Fire & Smoke, EN50155 verification and IEC 61375-2-5 compliance, the Ethernet switch is best switch for railway on-board/track side, vehicle and mining applications. For more usage flexibilities, the Ethernet switch supports wide operating temperature from -40°C to 75°C.

Note: Specifications vary by model and/or series. *Future Release **Optional
