The switches generate statistics such as data rate, throughput and the number of error frames being received. This status information is available through a Web browser. The switches also feature the thinnest form factor along a DIN rail, at 45mm, says the vendor. Each Managed Ethernet switch supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), which allows communications with network switches in a standardized way in order to request status information and set configuration. The switches also feature RapidRing Redundancy; if there is a break in an Ethernet ring, the switches identify an alternate path for the signal and re-establish traffic within less than 300 milliseconds.
