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, XGS3-24242, to meet the bandwidth requirements and protect network investment for enterprises. The XGS3-24242 is implemented with the following advanced technologies:
• IPv6 / IPv4 Routing and Management
• 10G Ethernet Switching
• Single IP Address Management
• Redundant Power System
The XGS3-24242 provides 24 shared 100/1000Base-X SFP slots with 12 shared 10/100/1000Mbps copper ports, 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 XGS3-24242 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 XGS3-24242 can also be an excellent choice as a core layer switch for enterprises, data centers or small and medium-sized networks.
Multi Port Fiber Optical Connective Capability Extends the Coverage of Multi-Layer Routing Services
The XGS3-24242 Multi-layer Switch is an essential Layer 3 multimedia switch, which brings high-end security and traffic control to the edge of the network. The XGS3-24242 offers multi port fiber optical connective capability and helps to extend the coverage of multi-layer routing services. With IP routing and multicast routing capabilities and flexible SFP interfaces, the XGS3-24242 is the ideal choice for the core layer of telecoms, campuses, and enterprises that need long reach and stability of IP metro access networks.
The XGS3-24242 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, etc. The Switch also supports multicast protocols including IGMP, DVMRP and PIM. Moreover, the XGS3-24242 complies with RIPv1/2, OSPF and IPv6.
Reliable Power Supply
The XGS3-24242 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.
The XGS3-24242 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 XGS3-24242 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.
