IPv6 Routing and 10G Ethernet Switch Solutions for the Next Generation Internet Protocol IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is well known as the next generation Internet Protocol to solve the lack of available IPv4 addresses. IPv6 can provide larger address space than IPv4 for the rapid growing networks. To provide smooth migration path from IPv4 to IPv6 for the future network upgrades, PLANET releases the multi-layer IPv6 / IPv4 Gigabit Ethernet Routing Switch, XGS3-24042, to satisfy the bandwidth requirements and protect network investment for enterprises. The XGS3-24042 is implemented with the following advanced technologies:
• IPv6 / IPv4 Routing and Management • 10G Ethernet Switching • Single IP Address Management • Redundant Power System
The XGS3-24042 provides 24 fixed 10/100/1000Mbps copper ports with 4 shard 100/1000Base-X SFP slots, two optional 2-Port 10Gbps SFP+ uplink module slots in a compact 1U height format. Positioned as the distribution or aggregation layer switch of large networks, the XGS3-24042 supports IP Stacking technology that helps to manage and configure up to 24 units via one single IP address easily. It serves for campus networks and metropolitan IP networks by offering intelligent security features, high performance and flexibility. The XGS3-24042 can also be an excellent choice as a core layer switch for enterprises, data centers or small & medium-sized networks.
Supports 10Gb Ethernet 10Gb Ethernet which adopts full-duplex technology instead of low-speed, half-duplex CSMA/CD protocol, is a big leap in the evolution of Ethernet. 10Gb Ethernet can be deployed in star or ring topologies. With 10Gb Ethernet technology applied, the XGS3-24042 provides broad bandwidth and powerful processing capacity. It is suitable for metropolitan networks and wide area networks. Using the XGS3-24042, users can simplify network structures and reduce cost of network construction. Networking Protocols The XGS3-24042 supports various networking protocols to meet the requirements of complex network constructions. It is compatible with 802.1D/w/s, 802.1Q, 802.1p, 802.3ad, 802.3x, GVRP, DHCP, SNTP and etc. The Switch also supports multicast protocols including IGMP, DVMRP and PIM. Moreover, the XGS3-24042 complies RIPv1/2, OSPF and IPv6.
Reliable Power Supply The XGS3-24042 provides AC/DC power redundancy. It can be deployed with 100~240V AC power input, -48V DC power input or 100~240V AC power/-48V DC power input simultaneously.
ACL The XGS3-24042 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 XGS3-24042 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.
QoS The XGS3-24042 switch fully supports DiffServ Module. Users can specify a queue bandwidth on each port. WRR/SP/SWRR scheduling is also provided. The XGS3-24042 supports the port security to enable users to deploy trusted CoS, DSCP, IP precedence and port priority. Users can modify packets’ DSCP and COS values so the traffic can be classified by port, VLAN, DSCP, IP precedence and ACL table. User can also modify packets’ DSCP and IP precedence values to specify different bandwidths for voice / data / video to customize different qualities of service.
Perfect Web Management The XGS3-24042 supports SNMP, In-band and Out-of-band Management, CLI and WEB interface, and RMON. It can mail the correlative sensitive information to the administrator abide by SMTP protocol. The XGS3-24042 supports SSH protocol to ensure the configuration management security of the switch.
