Ethernet Direct vs. Advantech Switches

*see notes at bottom of page

SPECIAL NOTE:
Caution ! Some Manufacturers list their products as managed switches because they can respond to a limited number SNMP requests or can be configured from a webpage.

Managed Switches in the commercial world support SNMP v1, v2, or v3 in addition to RFC 1493 and can be monitored by open network management packages and not the vendor specific software. IntraVUE is the open standard for Industrial Ethernet network management applications and works with vendors who support true management of their switches.
