IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the GS-4210-16T2S helps the SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as its network facilities need not be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The GS-4210-16T2S an be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree protocol (MSTP), loop and BPDU guard, IGMP snooping, and MLD snooping. Via the link aggregation, the GS-4210-16T2S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as a 16Gbps fat pipe, and supports fail-over as well. Also, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is the Layer 2 protocol included to help discover basic information about neighboring devices on the local broadcast domain.
Efficient Traffic Control
The GS-4210-16T2S is loaded with robust QoS features and powerful traffic management to enhance services to business-class data, voice, and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast/multicast/unicast storm control, per port bandwidth control, 802.1p/CoS/IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. It guarantees the best performance at VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.
PLANET GS-4210-16T2S offers comprehensive IPv4/IPv6 Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP ports or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1X port-based user and device authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS to ensure the port level security and block illegal users. With the protected port function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to guarantee user privacy. Furthermore, Port security function allows to limit the number of network devices on a given port.
Friendly and Secure Management
For efficient management, the GS-4210-16T2S is equipped with Command line, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
Moreover, the GS-4210-16T2S offers secure remote management by supporting SSHv2, TLSv1.2 and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexible Extension Solution
The two mini-GBIC slots built in the GS-4210-16T2S are compatible with the 100BASE-FX/1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceiver to uplink to backbone switch and monitor center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and to 10/20/40/60/80/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
Adopting the latest chip process and green technology, the GS-4210-16T2S successfully reduces substantial power consumption with the fanless and noiseless design collocating with the effective cooler. Therefore, the GS-4210-16T2S is able to operate stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance.
Department/Edge Security and QoS Switch
The GS-4210-16T2S connects up to 16 high speed workstations in the Ethernet environment, in which its two SFP mini-GBIC interfaces provide an uplink to a department backbone. Moreover, the Switch provides 36Gbps switch fabric and high bandwidth for backbone connection. The GS-4210-16T2S improves the network efficiency and safeguards the network clients with its powerful features:
The advanced functionality of the GS-4210-16T2S eliminates traditional issues associated with the use of Ethernet. Users can be separated with advanced VLAN functionality to enhance security. It makes the GS-4210-16T2S one of the best and most cost-effective switch solutions for SMBs.
High-performance Backbone/Server Farm Switch
Gigabit Ethernet supported equipment has become the fundamental unit of enterprises and network servers. With up to 36 Gbps non-blocking switch fabric, the GS-4210-16T2S can easily provide a local high bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet network for backbone of enterprises or telecoms. With its port trunking function, a 16 GB fat pipe is provided to connect to the backbone if required. It is ideal to be used as a server farm switch connecting to servers. The GS-4210-16T2S can offer the uplink to the edge network through Gigabit Ethernet LX/SX SFP modules with the two SFP ports.
The GS-4210-16T2S applies the double tag VLAN (Q-in-Q) technology to providing low cost and easy operation for service providers carrying traffic for multiple customers across their networks. It features SNMP v3 and RMON Groups. The SNMP v3 security structure consists of security models, with each model having its own security levels. With two dual-speed SFP slots built in, the deployment distance of the GS-4210-16T2S can be extended up to 120 kilometers (single-mode fiber), which provides a high-performance edge service for FTTx solutions.
To build a network solution of FTTH (Fiber to the Home) or FTTC (Fiber to the Curb) for ISPs, and FTTB (Fiber to the Building) for enterprises, the various distances of SFP and Bidi (WDM) transceivers are optional for customers’ choices. For security and various applications, the 16 Gigabit ports of the GS-4210-16T2S can be configured with VLAN settings and connected to different units, offices, floors, houses and departments.
