Allied Telesis Switch Overview

A Simple, Powerful, Cost-Effective Solution

AMF uses innovative and unique technology to deliver all the benefits of Software Defined Networking (SDN) centralised management, but without the complexity and cost. Reducing network running costs by automating and simplifying many day-to-day tasks, AMF allows skilled staff to be better utilised.

Save time and reduce costs by up to 60% with AMF

A significant amount of time, and therefore cost, is spent by highly skilled network engineers, performing mundane or repetitive tasks on a daily basis. These tasks include installing new or replacement network devices, upgrading configurations or firmware, and making configuration changes across multiple devices. With AMF, configured devices can be added directly into the network and device configuration can be managed automatically without requiring significant time from skilled engineers.

Eliminate the Chore of Configuration Management

Research consistently shows that network configuration management is arduous and error-prone. Significant time and effort is expended on ensuring that the latest configuration changes are stored safely. AMF reduces effort and the risk of errors by managing the configurations for all devices in the network automatically.

AMF Benefits

Enabling AMF in a network unlocks the following benefits:

  • Plug-and-Play addition of new switches to a network
  • Plug-and-Play replacement of failed switches
  • Simultaneous configuration of multiple switches
  • Automated roll out of software upgrades across a network
  • Automated backup of configuration and operating system images from all nodes in a network
  • MF provides powerful network management automation, and is built right in to the AlliedWare Plus operating system


If there are multiple sites in a company, especially sites a long distance from the centre site such as in nationwide or worldwide companies, skilled IT engineers must be placed at each local site. This requires network operations to develop multiple networking policies and complex network designs, which result in expensive networking costs. To address these issues, AMF achieves consistent network policy and design and then reduces networking costs. As a result, IT resources are effectively allocated to optimise your IT strategy.

AMF for Large Networks

AMF is a proven solution for saving time and reducing costs by automating many everyday network management tasks. The new AMF Controller allows the benefits of AMF to be applied to much larger networks, multiplying the time and cost savings.

A single AMF Master can support up to 120 devices, which is ideal for small- to medium-sized enterprise networks. For larger networks, the AMF Controller extends the benefits of AMF to more than 7,000 devices, even across different locations in different time zones.
