Allied Telesyn's 3600 Family provides and affordable managed stackable hub solution which is easy to use and truely scalable. The AT-3612TR and AT-3624TR hubs serve as single building blocks for both standalone and chassis configurations. This allows networks to be easily built and reconfigured at minimum expense.
Each AT-3612TR comes with 12, each AT-3624TR with 24 10Base-T ports (RJ45.) An additional modular port (pre-configured with AUI applique) provides backbone or inter-repeater connectivity through multiple types of cable media. Optional backbone appliqués include support for Unshielded Twisted Pair (10Base-T), Fiber Optic (10Base-FL) and Thinnet (10Base-2.)
The AT-3612TR and AT-3624TR are fully self-contained with internal universal power supply, advanced IEEE 802.3/ Ethernet repeater functionality, diagnostic LED support and comprehensive network management capabilities. For maximum functionality and reliability, they are based on an Allied Telesyn-developed ASIC.
All 3600 Series managed hubs are standard-equipped with three types of network management agents. For inexpensive local management, Allied Telesyn network management support is provided through an ASYNC terminal port (Omega Local.) An Omega Remote agent is also included. This network management interface is utilized in an in-band fashion through a Telnet session. Out-of-band connection to any remote hub is provided through Omega Local. In addition, the AT-3612TR and AT-3624TR hubs support industry standard SNMP network management stations.
A single department concentrator with up to 192 ports can be configured when up to eight AT-3624TR hubs are mounted into a 3600 chassis system. In a chassis configuration, the AT-3612TR and AT-3624TR hubs take on different personalities. The unit in slot one becomes the SNMP Master unit, slot two provides the SNMP Backup unit and the remaining slots create SNMP Slave units. Through this process, maximum network reliability is provided should the SNMP Master unit fail. Any of the units, except the current Master Unit, can be hot-swapped for fault tracing or reconfiguration of the concentrator without network downtime.
A firmware port is provided, enabling easy upgrades of the hub software. When a firmware cassette is inserted into the unit, the new firmware is copied into the units' on-board Flash EEPROM at the time of power up. In addition, any AT-3612TR or AT-3624TR unit can be upgraded over the network with new software from any other 3600 Series managed hub, with no user impact on the network.
The condition of this item is used. It was briefly tested to be sure that it powered up and had no collisions, but it was not thoroughly tested on a high-traffic network. The AC power cord is not included.
