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.
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
