Rich Multi-Layer and Multicast Networking Protocols
The XGS3 series supports IPv6/IPv4 routing protocols including Layer 3 IP Static Routing, RIPv1/v2 (Routing Information Protocol), OSPF(Open Shortest Path First), and VRRP(Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) protocols. Built in with abundant multicast features, the XGS3 series supports L3 multicast protocols -- DVMRP, PIM-DM, PIM-SM and PIM-SSM. Offering the rich application experience, the product supports multicast VLAN registration, multicast receive control and illegal multicast source detect functions. The XGS3 series solution is cost-effective yet has the ability to expand to meet today’s demand for network expansion.
High Performance 10Gbps Ethernet Capacity
The XGS3-24042’s built-in four SFP+ slots boast a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 128Gbps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands. Each of the SFP+ slots supports Dual-Speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX, meaning the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently.
Dual AC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation
The XGS3-24042 is equipped with two 100~240V AC power supply units for redundant power supply installation. A redundant power system is also provided to enhance the reliability with dual AC power supply units. The redundant power system is specifically designed to handle the demands of high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity.
IP Stacking Management
The XGS3-24042 supports IP stacking function that helps network managers to easily configure up to 24 switches in the same series via one single IP address instead of connecting and setting each unit one by one. PLANET XGS3 series adopting the IP Stacking technology enables centralized management through a single unit, regardless of the physical location or switch type, as long as they are connected to the same local network.
Full IPv6 Support
The XGS3-24042 provides IPv6 management and enterprise-level secure features such as SSH, ACL, WRR and RADIUS authentication. It thus helps the enterprises to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment. In addition, you don’t need to replace the network facilities when the IPv6 FTTx edge network is built.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The XGS3-24042 can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, port aggregation, VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol, WRR, bandwidth control and IGMP snooping. This switch provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q, voice VLAN and GVRP Protocol functions. By supporting port aggregation, the XGS3-24042 allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combined with multiple ports. It enables up to 16 groups for trunking with a maximum of 8 ports for each group.
Excellent Layer 2 to Layer 4 Traffic Control
The XGS3-24042 is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by telecoms. The WRR functionalities include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limitation which are particularly useful for multi-tenant unit, multi-business unit, Telco, or network service applications. It also empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources and guarantees the best in VoIP and video conferencing transmission.
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.
Efficient and Secure Management
For efficient management, the XGS3-24042 Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the XGS3-24042 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The XGS3-24042 supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software.
For reducing product learning time, the XGS3-24042 offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the XGS3-24042 offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The XGS3-24042 supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP and SFP+ transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
