10. Allied Telesis
Allied Telesis rounded out NPD's list of the best-selling switch brands of 2013, accounting for 0.8 percent of the total units sold.
Bothell, Wash.-based Allied Telesis in June bolstered its WebSmart line of Gigbabit Ethernet switches with the launch of the WebSmart GS950 PS Series. The new lineup includes 8-, 16- and 48-port configurations, all of which support Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and can deliver up to 30W per port.
Allied Telesis said the GS950 PS Series, given its built-in security features and PoE+ support, are ideal for connecting RFID readers, Point of Sale (PoS) systems and IP surveillance cameras.
