USR4504 – NEW NETWORKING PRODUCT from USR!

4504-simple-newproduct

Expand an existing SPAN (Port Mirror) or Tap port monitoring capability with the USR 10/100/1000 Variable 4 Port Aggregator and Regenerator. Dual purpose hardware provides the option to share identical copies of data made by Tap or SPAN ports to multiple tools for security, storage or recording purposes — or combine Tap and SPAN port data into one combined stream for complete visibility into network traffic. The 3:1 mode faultlessly combines and processes up to three streams of data into a single data stream allowing a single monitoring tool access to a larger portion of the network. The 1:3 mode replicates up to 3 copies of data, and when used with an Aggregation Tap like the USR4503 can increase visibility to four monitor ports, sending identical copies to separate network tools (analyzer, IDS, probe) for simultaneous monitoring and analyzing. Eliminate SPAN port contention, oversubscription, and configuration errors with this easy to install and port saving device. Ideal for security applications or anywhere you need dedicated access to your network links for advanced or consolidated monitoring.

  1. Flexible
  2. Network stability – help eliminate SPAN port contention and errors
  3. Secure
  4. Simple installation
  5. Up-time – deploy tools immediately without impacting production network

Why You Need a Laminator

Why Laminate?
Laminating helps to protect, preserve, and enhance documents and photos. It gives your documents a more professional look that can withstand wear and tear. It also makes your photos more vivid and sharper. Laminators are a great addition to offices, homes, schools, government institution, and more.

How to Laminate?
Laminating is a rather simple process. First, take a sheet of laminating pouch film and insert the document or photo you wish to laminate. Next, run it through the laminator. There are 2 types of pouch films thermal and self-adhesive. Thermal film is melted by the laminator which makes it sticky and seals it to the document. Self-adhesive film has a sticky back similar to tape that is applied over the document and the pressure from the laminator rollers is what creates the seal. Our laminators feature both hot and cold lamination which will laminate both of these types of film.

What to Laminate?
Professional: POS displays, hours of operation, OSHA documents, maps, posters, school lesson plans, menus, business cards, name tags, prayer cards

Personal: Photos, children’s artwork, birth certificates, luggage tags, labels, recipes

Shop our line of Royal Sovereign laminators and pouch film for your next lamination job.
