The Pakedge SX-Series family of switches provide uncompromising top of the line performance with state of the art features. Designed around high performance while maintaining simplicity and architectural aesthetics, the SX series switches incorporate functional features and innovations aimed at commercial and technically complex residential projects.
The SX-8-EP is powered by PoE or AC power, providing unmatched versatility and use in retrofit applications.
High performance switches start with the core. The engines powering Pakedge switches are enterprise grade high performance processors using switch on a chip (SoC) technology. Network processors are optimized to process AV network traffic flows at high speeds. They reduce the load on other system components by taking on many of the packet-based communications maintenance tasks such as general TCP processing, network address translation and some encryption/decryption tasks. AV Traffic management is a key function of the switch and the chipset is the heart of that functionality. A high performance chipset is critical to fast and accurate switching capabilities.
Pakedge Zones simplify VLANs for A/V networks by breaking them into six subnetworks: management, voice, audio/video, automation, data and guest. Network ports on routers and switches under these subnetworks are color-coded for easy identification. SX-Series switches make Pakedge Zones even easier with Zone Wizard and Zone Template technology. The Zone Wizard offers easy drag-and-drop Zone configuration, while Zone Templates allow users to choose from a series of preconfigured templates chosen based on industry best practices for optimized network performance.
Pakedge Switches optimizes your A/V network by utilizing TruStream™ technology. TruStream eliminates lag, jitter, and buffering in streaming audio and video traffic, resulting in an un-interrupted media experience.
PoE powered switches provide users with portability and versatility – particularly in retrofit applications. These switches can receive power from a PoE switch in locations where easy access to wall plugs is hard to find.
With Bakpak, it's easy to get a complete overview of your network. Devices connected to any Pakedge switch can be viewed at a glance, and ports on PoE switches can be power cycled remotely – from anywhere in the world
Pakedge switch management menus are designed with an emphasis on user experience/use interface (UX/UI) principles. We’ve created a simple, intuitive, easy to use menu, that is streamlined in look and feel across the entire Pakedge product line. This unified design language makes it easy to use any Pakedge product ensuring faster setup, easier configuration, and simple maintenance.
An often overlooked, but incredibly important aspect of switches in AV environments is sound. Pakedge switches are designed for silent or near-silent performance – allowing them to be the backbone of your AV network in the most noise-sensitive areas such as conference rooms and home theaters.
A truly luxurious home deserves the look and feel of devices designed from the ground-up with class in mind. Elegant design, high-quality materials, and cool blue LEDs give Pakedge switches a high-end A/V look and feel. Because of this focus on design, Pakedge Switches fit perfectly alongside any A/V equipment in a rack.
