eSmartES™ ESP8100 Series


The ESP8100 Series Managed Ethernet Switch has a best-in-class implementation of PoE and PoE+ which is fully managed on a per port basis. These managed switches are designed especially for “edge” applications, deploying the latest in reliability and security for harsh environments, on the perimeter of the network where Smart Grid and industrial devices are connected. The ESP8100 also incorporates Westell's SiteVu™ Secure functionality which provides complete visibility to remote site environmental and equipment status from the user's desktop, giving the user a real-time monitoring solution. SiteVu™ Secure features include:


  • Internal temperature
  • External temperature probe input
  • Input voltage level monitor
  • A/B voltage monitor
  • 2 external telemetry inputs for doors, power supplies, alarms, and other external sources



  • PoE/PoE+ ports are fully manageable on a per port basis, enabling users to turn power on or off as needed for individual components
  • Provides industrial and utility users with a flexible, cost-effective solution that is highly reliable and highly secure
  • Allows industrial and utility users to build a switched, hardened Ethernet network infrastructure for connecting edge devices such as SCADA telemetry radios, programmable logic controllers, and cameras with upstream switches or routers


  • Six PoE ports supporting 802.3af (15.4 watts) and 802.3at (up to 34.2 watts) for higher power requirements
  • Software controlled PoE power on/off ports that are managed on a per-port basis
  • Gigabit Ethernet ports for high-bandwidth uplinks such as video over IP
  • SiteVu™ Secure for unprecedented situational awareness of system voltage, temperature, and status of external devices like doors, water detectors, rectifiers, and smoke detectors
  • Easy-to-use dashboard style Westell Edge Operating System (WEOS) control software provides a secure user-friendly method to set parameters and monitor events
  • Advanced Ethernet traffic controls for high-level IP processing including QOS, IGMP snooping, VLANs, and more
  • 802.3ah Ethernet OAM functionality to isolate and diagnose network problems
  • Network redundancy options including STP, RSTP and MSTP for fault recovery in rings and meshes
  • SNMP v1/v2/v3 management
  • RADIUS centralized password management & RADIUS Accounting WEOS data logging
  • 802.1p QoS prioritization
  • Secure web management GUI and CLI interfaces
  • Temperature hardened -40 to +85° C
  • Dual/redundant DC power supply inputs for high availability applications requiring dual or backup power
  • Input voltage of 44 to 57Vdc (50 to 57Vdc for PoE+); High input voltage range of 88 to 264Vac or 124 to 370Vdc (with available external power supply 060-000224)
