|Telecom-class Gigabit Solution for Enterprise Backbone and Data Center Networking
PLANET WGSW-52040 is a Layer 2+ Managed Gigabit Switch that provides high-density performance and also supports Layer 3 static routing and RIP (Routing Information Protocol). With 104Gbps switching fabric, the WGSW-52040 can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to an enterprise backbone or high capacity servers. The powerful WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and Network Security features make the WGSW-52040 perform effective data traffic control for ISP and Enterprise VoIP, video streaming and multicast applications.
|Layer 3 Routing Support
The WGSW-52040 enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 static routing manually or the RIP (Routing Information Protocol) settings automatically. The RIP can employ the hop count as a routing metric and prevent routing loops by implementing a limit on the number of hops allowed in a path from the source to a destination. The maximum number of hops allowed for the RIP is 15.
|Abundant IPv6 Support
The WGSW-52040 provides IPv6 management and enterprise level secure features such as SSH, ACL, WRR andRADIUS authentication besides support of the IPv4 protocol. The WGSW-52040 thus helps the enterprises to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment. In addition, you don’t need to replace the network facilities when the IPv6 FTTx edge network is built.
The WGSW-52040 provides 48 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports with 4 additional Gigabit SFP slots. It boasts a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 104Gbps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.
|Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGSW-52040 can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, port aggregation, VLAN, Spanning Tree protocol, WRR, bandwidth control and IGMP snooping. The WGSW-52040 provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q, voice VLAN and GVRP protocol. The VLAN groups allowed to be on the WGSW-52040 will be maximally up to 256. By supporting port aggregation, the WGSW-52040 allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combined with multiple ports. It enables up to 128 groups of maximum 8 ports for trunking.
|Excellent Traffic Control
The WGSW-52040 is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by telecoms. The WRR functionalities include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limitation which are particularly useful for multi-tenant unit, multi-business unit, Telco, or network service applications. It also empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance at VoIP and video conferencing transmission.
The WGSW-52040 supports ACL policies comprehensively. The traffic can be classified by source/destination IP addresses, source/destination MAC addresses, IP protocols, TCP/UDP, IP precedence, time ranges and ToS. Moreover, various policies can be conducted to forward the traffic. The WGSW-52040 also provides IEEE 802.1x port based access authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS, to ensure the port level security and block illegal users.
The WGSW-52040 supports IP stacking function that helps network managers to easily configure up to 24 switches in the same series via one single IP address instead of connecting and setting each unit one by one. For efficient management, the WGSW-52040 Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the WGSW-52040 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The WGSW-52040 supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the WGSW-52040 can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the WGSW-52040 offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.
|Flexibility and Extension Solution
The four mini-GBIC slots built in the WGSW-52040 are compatible with 1000BASE-X and WDM SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (multi-mode fiber) up to above 10/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
