SnapAV Launches New Lineup of Pakedge MS Series Layer 3 Managed Switches with Built-In OvrC Remote Management
New Pakedge MS Series Switches with OvrC are ideal for performance-demanding luxury residential, commercial, and pro-AV projects.
Charlotte, NC – June 9, 2020 – SnapAV is proud to announce the release of Pakedge MS Series Layer 3 Managed Switches with OvrC, the latest addition to their extensive lineup of networking products. The MS Series is built for professionals and includes five new models engineered to deliver ultimate performance and reliability for today’s high-bandwidth applications.
MS Switches offer commercial-grade performance for large residential, pro-AV, and commercial projects, including sports bars, retail space, and other comparable venues. The MS Series supports both plug-and-play setup for standard installs as well as advanced Layer 3 functionality and pro-AV features, including Dante and Q-LAN support.
“Customers expect their network to be fast and reliable, particularly when they depend on it for communicating and streaming,” said Kenny Kim, Vice President of Product Management, Connected, and Infrastructure Products at SnapAV. “These new switches are going to help pros deliver optimal speed and performance for their largest audio and video over IP projects.”
Using extensive feedback from pros, SnapAV designed the MS Series with features that promise to simplify installation and provide maximum versatility. Rear-facing ports, 10Gbps SFP+ fiber uplinks, and improved PoE+ budgeting to support more PoE-powered devices are all included to help pros deploy powerful networks for their customers.
With a range of 1Gbps Ethernet and optional 10Gbps SFP+ fiber uplinks, MS switches are ideal for multiple switch environments where high-speed connections between switches are crucial for optimal performance.
MS Series Switches are the first Pakedge products with built-in OvrC remote management. Without any additional hardware, pros can immediately use OvrC to install and remotely monitor their customers’ networks from anywhere in the world. From the user-friendly OvrC mobile or desktop app, it’s easy to manage PoE power and consumption per port, reboot ports, update firmware, and more.
“The MS Series builds on our recent announcement that OvrC is SnapAV’s single remote management platform of the future,” said Kim. “Now, dealers can enjoy the power of OvrC with SnapAV’s most powerful line of network switches to better meet the needs of their customers.”
The MS Series offers five 12-, 24-, and 44-port models in a variety of PoE+ configurations. The MS-1212 and MS-2424 are available today, and the MS-2400, MS-2416, and MS-4424 are available now for preorder and will ship July 2020. More information about the MS Series is available on the Control4, Pakedge, and Triad Dealer Portals.
