Ubiquiti Unveils 3 Unifi Switches for Enterprise Customers
Wireless data communication product manufacturer, #Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. #UBNT , recently announced the expansion of its UniFi Switch product line by rolling out three switching hardware units, namely US-16-XG, US-8-60W and US-8. The expansion of the #UniFiSwitch product line will enable the company in meeting complex networking needs; thus strengthening its client base and revenues. Leveraging on the UniFi Software-Defined Networking (” #SDN “) Platform, which is at the core of all the three new devices, enterprises can easily manage their wired networks from center to the periphery.

US-16-XG is the costliest out of the three switches, with a price tag of $599. It is a 16-port, 10G fiber switch, with advanced Layer-2 switching features and protocols, offering high-bandwidth aggregation connectivity.
