Xirrus' Wired Switches

Xirrus may best be known for its wireless arrays and access points, but the vendor threw Interop attendees a curve ball this year, introducing its first-ever line of wired switches.

As part of its broader Unified Access portfolio, Xirrus took the wraps off three new wired Ethernet switches: the XT-5024, XT-5048 and XT-5003. The XT-5024 and XT-5048 are 24-port and 48-port switches, respectively, equipped with advanced Layer 2+ functionality, along with Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities for powering Xirrus' access points.

The new XT-5003, meanwhile, is a three-port, in-wall Gigabit Ethernet switch.

Xirrus said the three new switches can scale through virtual stacking to increase capacity as demand grows and will be available in June.
