Yamaha Launches New Intelligent L2 PoE Switch at InfoComm 2018

SWR2311P 10G front 02

Being launched alongside the new VXL1-16P loudspeaker at InfoComm 2018, Yamaha’s new SWR2311P-10G is an intelligent L2 switch that provides the ideal functionality for Audinate’s globally-used Dante digital audio network, allowing construction of stable audio networks while simplifying settings, monitoring, management and operation.

The SWR2311P-10G allows optimal Dante settings to be automatically made on the VXL1-16P via LLDP, which passes system management data between neighbouring devices. Featuring eight Power over Ethernet (PoE)-compliant LAN ports and two combo LAN/SFP ports, the SWR2311P-10G can supply a maximum of 30W PoE for all ports simultaneously.

The unit delivers ample PoE for driving the VXL1-16P, as well as transmitting Dante audio and control signals. Using both units with the Yamaha MRX7-D matrix processor allows an intelligent conference room system to be constructed with minimum difficulty.

Dedicated Yamaha LAN Monitor software allows for quick troubleshooting, including checking the PoE power supply status, switching the PoE power supply and - using the snapshot function - fault notification. The web-based user interface provides a full range of monitoring functionality, including dead/alive monitoring for PoE powered devices, allowing the user to restart the device if a fault occurs or fault notification via email.

An optional RK-SWR rackmount accessory can be used to install the SWR2311P-10G in a 19-inch rack, with the WK-SWR wall mount accessory available to mount the unit on a wall, ceiling or other surface. In situations that require Dante devices to be connected across distances greater than 100 metres /110 yards, the SFP-SWRG-SX or SFP-SWRG-LX long-distance communication modules can be used to ensure reliable communication, with minimal transmission loss and strong resistance to electromagnetic noise.

InfoComm2018 is taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nevada, US, from June 6th - 8th. Yamaha is exhibiting on Booths C1346 (North Hall) and N113 (Grand Lobby).
