PARAMUS, N.J. -- Dataprobe, a leading manufacturer of innovative technology solutions for networking, systems, and site management, has released the new 2005 K-16 Redundancy Switch Series. The K-16 Series provides reliable switching of communications circuits for line protection and equipment redundancy. Dataprobe’s solutions help network managers create fault-tolerant networks with a physical layer of protection that enables redundant systems to be automatically, remotely or manually operated ensuring maximum uptime for crucial communication circuits.

Dataprobe’s K-16 Redundancy Switches are utilized for remote switch control, automatic fault detection and switching, equipment redundancy and line protection. They are available in rack mountable multi-card chassis, single and dual circuit desktop or rack mountable versions, or custom models and configurations for unique customer needs or OEM partners.

The new models have significant enhancements including:

· SNMP Support

SNMP support enables the K-16 Switch to be integrated into network management systems using standard SNMP managers such as HP OpenView, CA Unicenter, and IBM Tivoli Netview.

· High Speed Network Switch Card

Designed for switching of 10/100/1G Ethernet, the High Speed Network Switch Card, allows applications for redundant network topology and can be used for ‘cutout network’ security (isolating computers with open Internet connections to protect corporate networks.)

· SCSI-3 Card

These cards offer connectivity between SCSI HD68 pin connections for Ultra Wide SCSI-3, Ultra2, Ultra160 and Ultra320. In addition to support for redundant SCSI arrays, this card has been designed to for failover of telephony servers that use HD68 connectors to terminate station cards.

· DS-3 Card

Dataprobe’s engineering team re-designed an existing card that provides dual BNC connectors for switching DS-3 circuits. The technological advancement significantly reduced the cost of the card from an MSRP of $1,125 to $475 while maintaining full functionality and quality.

“We are continually developing new products and features to aid our customers in cost-efficient, reliable remote network management,” said David Weiss, CEO of Dataprobe. “These enhancements are the direct result of customer requests and fill an immediate need in the marketplace. In addition, the technological innovation in the manufacturing and design of our DS-3 cards reduced the cost by almost 60% - a savings which we are passing on directly to our customers.”
