GarrettCom 6K16 Modular Managed Carrier Class Switch


• Managed Ethernet Switch with mixed media port types, for mounting in 19”or ETSI or 23” Telco racks with front-to rear fan cooling
• Provides 2 modular slots for user selection of 100 Mb, 10Mb, Gigabit fiber ports, and copper 10/100, Gigabit ports
• Choose from a family of 20 port modules for unlimited configuration flexibility
• Input power choices include - 48VDC, 24VDC, 125VDC, dual source, or worldwide AC
• Tested for high availability Telco & Industrial applications, NEBS and ETSI compliant


Magnum™ 6K16 Managed Ethernet Switches provide configurability for fiber and copper ports, 10 Mb, 100 Mb and Gigabit speed ports, and comprehensive management software in a compact rack-mount package.  Two units can fit side-by-side in a rack, simplifying redundant and hot backup systems in mission-critical applications.  Setting a new standard for Carrier Class equipment and Industrial
plant-wide applications, robust Ethernet Switch jobs are made easy by the flexibility and power of the Magnum 6K16. With options such as dual-source -48V and 24V DC power input, worldwide AC power, and front-to-rear fan cooling, the mixed-media Magnum 6K16 handles 100 Mb user connectivity along with Gigabit backbone ports, mix and match, in half the space normally required.

High performance features include non-blocking speed on all ports and 802.1p QoS Traffic Prioritization. Magnum 6K16s are “plug-and-play” ready for use as backbone switches where a mix of bursty data traffic and priority streaming traffic for VoIP and audio/video applications is present.

Magnum 6K16 Managed Switches are provided with LAN management software including SNMPv1 and RMON management with access
control, SNMPv3 authentication security, Tag- and Port-based VLANs, IGMP Snooping, Port Security, Port Mirroring, SNTP, SMTP, BootP and DHCP, and control via command line interface. For high availability LANs redundant topologies, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP), Link-Loss-Learn™ and S-Ring™ are available. See the Managed Networks Software (MNS-6K) and S-Ring datasheets for additional details on the comprehensive set of software programs and options.

Designed for use in telecom equipment systems, industrial process plants, power utilities, transportation systems, and video surveillance jobs with segments requiring Gigabit backbone interconnections, the Magnum 6K16 is easy to install and operate. The next generation of carrier class applications will need advanced managed network software, operation at extended temperatures, fiber ports modularity, support for self healing ring structures, and gigabit backbone configurability. The Magnum 6K16 has all of these, and is available now.

Magnum 6K16 Managed Switches have heavy duty metal cases and auto-ranging power supplies for operation with standard AC power
worldwide. Internal DC power supplies are optional. The 6K16s and all other Magnum products are designed and manufactured in the USA and backed by a three year warranty.
