Stan SimmonsWe all know that it’s impossible to become an expert in every single aspect of industrial M2M.  Who has the time?  So today’s tech tip is intended to help you select the Ethernet switch that is most appropriate for your application. 
We’ve put together a selection guide.  It incorporates a series of questions that you should ask yourself at the beginning of your next project.  It also includes a reference chart that highlights the key features you will be looking for in an Ethernet switch. 
Here’s a sneak peak at a few of the questions that will need answers before you finalize your switch selection:

  • Does the application require Managed or Unmanaged Ethernet Switches?
  • What data speeds are required?
  • Does the application require PoE functionality?
  • How many Ethernet Ports does the application require?
