A few years ago, PLANET developed the FGSW-4840S, the best solution for a cost-effective, high-density network application. To further enhance the solution with a more robust Layer 2 management function, PLANET has released a brand-new version of the FGSW-4840S. The brand-new FGSW-4840S is definitely more secure in that it allows the remote system to maintain or configure under security management interfaces.
High-Density, Full-Functioned, Layer 2 Managed Switch for Enterprise and Campus Networking
PLANET FGSW-4840S is a 48-Port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet Switch with 2-Port Gigabit and 2-Port Gigabit SFP interfaces, which comes with a high-performance switch architecture, capable of providing non-blocking 17.6Gbps switch fabric and wire-speed throughput at 13Mpps. Its four built-in GbE uplink ports also offer incredible extensibility, flexibility and connectivity to the core switch or servers. The powerful features of QoS and network security offered by the FGSW-4840S enable the switch to perform effective data traffic control for ISP and enterprise VoIP, video streaming and multicast applications. It is ideal for the remote access layer of campus or enterprise networks and the aggregation layer of IP metropolitan networks.
Robust Layer 2 Feature
The FGSW-4840S can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as port mirror, port security, port isolation and loopback detection. It also features the dynamic port link aggregation (Static Trunk and LACP), 802.1Q VLAN, Spanning Tree protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree protocol (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree protocol (MSTP), Static / Dynamic / Filtering MAC address, IGMP Snooping, Multicast IP and Multicast Filter. With DHCP filtering, via aggregation of supporting ports, the FGSW-4840S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports. It enables a maximum of up to 6 groups of 4 ports for trunk and supports fail-over as well.
The FGSW-4840S offers comprehensive 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.
Efficient Traffic Control
The FGSW-4840S 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 advantages of the limited network resources.
Enhanced and Secure Management
For efficient management, the FGSW-4840S is equipped with, Web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the FGSW-4840S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet. Moreover, the FGSW-4840S offers secure remote management by supporting HTTPS andSNMPv3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexible Extension Solution
The two mini-GBIC slots built in the FGSW-4840S are compatible with the 1000Base-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceiver to uplink to the backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (multi-mode fiber) to 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
