Upgraded “Fibre to the Office” Gigaswitch from Nexans

With more than 205,000 of it’s “Fibre To The Office” (FTTO) LANactive switches installed, Kellihers’ data partner Nexans, an acknowledged industry leader in the FTTO infrastructure space, has just released the updated LANactive V5 Gigaswitch.

LANactive offers an alternative approach to traditional LAN using fibre-to-the-office (FTTO) topology and active switches to provide standard Ethernet services to devices via copper-based RJ45 technology. Introduced in 2000, LANactive has proven to be a reliable, high-performing solution for large-scale infrastructures in various environments, including education, hospitals, airports, police & defence and public administration.

This latest iteration of its LANacive Gigaswitch offers enhanced performance based on reliable, well-established technologies and is fully backwards-compatible with existing switches and network infrastructure.

Here’s a video overview of what’s new with the LANactive V5 Gigaswitch from Nexans:

The compact design of the GigaSwitch remains unchanged in this latest version, featuring the rotatable head, ergonomic position of interfaces and slim dimensions that streamline installation and maintenance. No staff retraining is required, since the same mounting and installation accessories can be used, and management interfaces have the same look and feel.
