  • Overview
  • Specifications
  • The Lynx 5500 series is the most compact high-performance industrial Ethernet switch series on the market. It has been developed with the needs of current and future industrial data network, combining outstanding performance, durability and reliability these switches are ideal for handling big data and high bandwidth requirements typically found within transportation, manufacturing, energy, smart cities and other applications.

    Integrating hardware, software and network design support tools, this next generation switch platform offers advanced capabilities, the lowest total cost of ownership and will create the most reliable and resilient networks.

    The switch is engineered to maintain uninterrupted data communication, even in exceptionally harsh environments. Tested and certified to withstand extreme temperatures, vibrations and shocks, these switches only use industrial grade components which contributes towards a market leading mean time between failure (MTBF), maximized service life, and reduced operational and life cycle costs.

    By providing full gigabit speed on all 12 ports, four flexible SFP ports and layer 2 and layer 3 functionality, a broad range of applications are possible. Powered by the next generation WeOS operating system, which ensures robust operation and support for an expanding range of protocols and features. The Lynx 5512 features intuitive set-up and configuration, removing the need for specialized IT support or training, and enabling easy and cost-efficient installation. In addition, recognizing the growing sophistication of cyber attacks, an extensive suite of cyber security tools is available.

    The switches are also prepared for routing acceleration, extended cyber security and time synchronization IEEE 1588v2 applications, making them an ideal solution to meet future security and bandwidth requirements.
