Axia Audio xSwitch

Ethernet switch
This network switch doesn't require setup or programming, which will further simplify installing a Livewire network. The device is pre-configured with the instructions needed to run a Livewire network out of the box. Plug it in, perform a quick one-button setup, and start connecting Livewire devices. The xSwitch uses the same chassis as the xNode. It has small form-factor pluggable (SFP) gigabit ports, in addition to dual 1000Base-T copper ports. The adjacent 1000BT copper ports provide a dual-redundant network interface; if the primary network link is interrupted, the secondary backup connection is automatically activated. There are eight 100-BaseT Livewire ports, four with power over Ethernet. xSwitch is compact, allowing two to be racked side-by-side in 1RU of rack space, and fanless, using front-panel heat sinks that convection-cool using cool studio air instead of the hot air inside the equipment rack.

What the judges had to say:
"Zero configuration -- so much simpler."
"Designed so well to work with the audio network."
