Luxul adds ’˜self-healing’ capability to switches

Luxul has announced that its latest free firmware upgrade brings auto-recovery and power scheduling to PoE-connected products.

Introduced to reduce service calls, Luxul’s ‘self-healing’ functionality will come to managed network switches on firmware version 4.1.1 or greater.

The capability is currently available on the company's 12-port/8 PoE+ AMS-1208P, 26-port/24 PoE+ stackable L2/L3 AMS-4424P, 26-port/24 PoE+ AMS-2624P, 26-port/24 PoE+ XMS-2624P, 52-port PoE+ L2/L3 XMS-5248P and 52-port stackable L2/L3 XMS-7048.

Luxul’s ‘Auto-Recovery’ feature removes the need for devices connected to switches by PoE to be manually rebooted when they fall offline or become unresponsive as the configuration in the switch triggers PoE-connected devices to reboot automatically.

With ‘Power Scheduling’, integrators can now trigger the switches to power PoE-connected devices on or off based on any schedule they create within the switch.

“Imagine never getting another call about security cameras or other PoE-connected devices freezing up; your clients' switches will take care of them automatically,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “Furthermore, it's effortless to schedule devices to power down overnight, over the weekend, or whenever your clients request it.”

Self-Healing will soon be a standard feature on a number of upcoming Luxul switches, including the 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P and 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P too.
