New GECKO 4TX Ethernet Switch Enables Fast, Easy Deployment and Lower Operating Costs
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has extended its comprehensive range of industrial Ethernet products by introducing the GECKO 4TX switch. This switch creates a new product category by combining the advantages of fully-managed switches with the benefits of fast and simple deployment.
With easy-to-implement management functionality, the GECKO 4TX allows users to focus on the essentials, making it convenient to configure and monitor without needing special IT know-how. The switch’s low power consumption also helps cut long-term operating costs.

“For anyone reluctant to use managed switches because of their complex operation, the GECKO 4TX is the ideal alternative,” explains Product Manager Sebastian Preiss. “While its functional scope is not as extensive as a fully managed switch, the GECKO 4TX allows high network availability thanks to redundancy and diagnostic functions, and offers genuine added value compared to unmanaged devices.”
The GECKO 4TX was designed with practical essentials in mind, including the proper level of management functionality. This concept allows the GECKO switches to deliver the required performance when unmanaged switches cannot.
Other benefits include:
Ideally suited for use in smaller networks or on the edge of large installations, the robust and compact GECKO 4TX can be used in a wide range of areas, from solar farms to production lines for the food and beverage sector. Potential applications include machine and plant engineering, material handling, robotics and connection of production cells for various industries. The GECKO 4TX guarantees reliable data communication wherever it is installed.
