Datto Launches New Series of Networking Switches for Managed Service Providers

We’re happy to announce the addition of a new series of networking switches to the Datto Networking product line. Responding to direct feedback from managed services provider (MSP) partners, we created the L-Series switches to deliver cloud-managed layer 2 functionality with Power over Ethernet (PoE) at an exceptional price point.

The L-Series will initially include two models: the L8 and the L24. Equipped with a basic overall PoE budget, both switches deliver power capabilities for every port up to PoE+ and offer full Layer 2 management functionality. The L-Series switches are optimized for deployments with a lower overall power demand. Being offered at a more modest price point, Datto partners can also deploy L-Series models in environments that do not currently call for PoE, while future-proofing the customer and the MSP for unforeseen PoE requirements.

“As the newest additions to Datto Networking’s line of switches, the L-Series reinforces just how much Datto values the feedback of our MSP partners and our commitment to responding with solutions that help them address their client needs,” said John Tippett, Vice President of Datto Networking . “We look forward to evolving our networking solutions together with our partners as we continue our expansion in this space.”

The L-Series represents Datto Networking’s baseline switch models, and complements Datto Networking’s current E-Series (E8, E24 and E48, high-PoE budget models). By introducing the L-Series, Datto Networking now delivers a full line of managed switches for MSPs to address the networking needs of all their small- to medium-sized clients.
