Pakedge Device & Software has introduced its K62 and K61 Preconfigured, Multi-VLAN, Gigabit Router and Configurable Audio/Video Bridging Systems.
The K62 includes the Pakedge R6V router, SW-24GBM fully-managed 24-port gigabit Ethernet switch and mounting brackets. The K61 includes the Pakedge R6V router, SW8-GBV 8-port Ethernet switch and mounting brackets.
The 24-port K62 and 8-port K61 provide audio/video bridging (AVB) and smart home networking performance, along with easy installation and robust security. The K62 includes the Pakedge R6V router, SW-24GBM fully-managed 24-port gigabit Ethernet switch and mounting brackets. The K61 includes the Pakedge R6V router, SW8-GBV 8-port Ethernet switch and mounting brackets.
The K62 is ideal for use in larger networks, while the K61 is well-suited for installations that require fewer connected devices.
Victor Pak, president and CEO of Pakedge said, "The K62 and K61 are optimized for applications like high-definition audio streaming and networked custom installation home entertainment systems. Their gigabit speed delivers the fastest possible network speeds to ensure dependable audio/video bridging performance for all connected devices, and they offer enterprise-class reliability as well."
The K62 and K61 are preconfigured to provide up to six VLANs. In addition, the K61 provides 1 fiber-capable port. The K62 provides two fiber-capable ports for longer cable runs. The K62 and K61 also provide dual WAN (Wide Area Network) ports to ensure Internet redundancy, and a DMZ port, for easy connection of web servers, FTP servers, or gaming consoles without additional configuration. The K62 and K61 enable each device on the network to be prioritized, enabling more efficient network operation. Devices that require 100 percent smooth communication, (eg. audio/video streaming and VoIP phones) can be assigned the highest priorities. Installers can also set up a guest network apart from the main network.
Both models come preconfigured for a wide variety of applications, from basic networks to complex residential systems. Color-coded rear panel jacks facilitate a faster, cleaner installation. If desired, the VLANs can be easily reprogrammed via any network port, using a laptop or other device.
