To reduce service calls and deliver additional benefits for clients, Luxul, a leading innovator of IP networking solutions for AV integrators, has announced Self-Healing capability for select managed network switches.
Available via a free upgrade to firmware version 4.1.1 or greater, the new functionality empowers integrators with two advanced features: Auto-Recovery and Power Scheduling.
Luxul’s Self-Healing capability is currently available on the company’s 12-port/8 PoE+ AMS-1208P, 26-port/24 PoE+ stackable L2/L3 AMS-4424P, 26-port/24 PoE+ AMS-2624P, 26-port/24 PoE+ XMS-2624P, 52-port PoE+ L2/L3 XMS-5248P, and 52-port stackable L2/L3 XMS-7048.
With Auto-Recovery, devices connected to these switches by PoE no longer need to be manually rebooted when they fall offline or become unresponsive; the configuration in the switch triggers PoE-connected devices to reboot automatically.
And with Power Scheduling, integrators can now trigger the switches to power PoE-connected devices on or off based on any schedule they create within the switch.
“With Self-Healing, we’re amping up the performance of Luxul switches to an entirely new level,” said Mike Grubb, Vice President of Marketing at Luxul. “Imagine never getting another call about security cameras or other PoE-connected devices freezing up; your clients’ switches will take care of them automatically. Furthermore, it’s effortless to schedule devices to power down overnight, over the weekend, or whenever your clients request it. All it takes to realize these benefits is a free firmware update.”
Self-Healing will also be a standard feature on a number of soon-to-be available Luxul switches, including the 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P and 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P shipping soon.
