Scalable Cloud-Based Management
Alta Labs provides an intuitive and easy-to-use cloud-based management interface for Alta Labs access points and switches. Designed for optimum scalability using a high-availability architecture for the ultimate in convenience and worldwide accessibility. Built on a worldwide content delivery network to optimize response and latency, our global cloud infrastructure ensures geographically optimized connectivity through our redundant network. Deploy and manage multiple sites quickly and easily. Add, delete, or rename sites instantly. Toggle between sites from a site selection drop-down. Each site contains its own data set.
As one of their advanced features, the S24-PoE supports VLAN stacking, or Q-in-Q, to provide your customers with their own subsets of VLANs.
Egress and Ingress Rate Limiting
These switches offer egress and ingress rate limiting. This allows inbound and outbound traffic to be limited to a portion of the available bandwidth per connection. For example, a hotel may want to provide guests with free 5 Mbps internet download (egress) connections but require guests pay an extra fee for 100+ Mbps speeds. The upload (ingress) speeds from the guests devices can also be limited.
Alta Labs Cloud Management Platform
The Alta Labs Cloud Management Platform provides many features that can be utilized on your Alta Labs Switches.
Customize your dashboard with the information you want to see: IP address, Load, number of devices, MAC address, firmware version, network colour assignment, and real-time status details. Details are sortable by column.
View upload and download throughput with a visual timeline on the dashboard for each device displayed along with the number of connected devices, average processor load, channel load, and average connected devices. Select a snapshot of the last minute, last hour, last two days, or last two months.
Easily view connection details and configure your ports by clicking the device icon.
The Alta Site Manager provides an overview of all sites, displays the number of devices for each site, and shows when updates are needed. New sites can be added and current sites can be duplicated or removed. Use the search option to look for a specific site.
The S24 PoE and S16 PoE include rack ears that can be connected to the switches for rack installation or mounting on a wall.
The rack ears are designed to keep the cooling vents exposed.
These switches also include the Rackstud™ DUO toolless rackmount system.
The S8 PoE switch has padding for desktop placement and notches for mounting on the included wall mount bracket.
