PLANET GS-6320-46S2C4XR Layer 3 Managed Switch features 48 100/1000Mbps SFP ports, 2 shared RJ45 copper ports, 4 10G SFP+ ports and Layer 3 IP routing in a 19-inch metal housing that provides high-density performance. With 10Gbps uplink and 176Gbps switching fabric, the GS-6320-46S2C4XR greatly simplifies the tasks of handling extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to backbone or high capacity servers for ISP and enterprise VoIP, video streaming, and multicast applications.
Layer 3 Dynamic Routing Support
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN static routing manually, and the OSPFv2 (Open Shortest Path First) settings automatically. The OSPF is an interior dynamic routing protocol for autonomous system based on link state. The protocol creates a database for link state by exchanging link states among Layer 3 switches, and then uses the Shortest Path First algorithm to generate a route table based on that database.
Network with Cybersecurity Helps Minimize Security Risks
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR comes with enhanced cybersecurity to fend off cyberthreats and cyberattacks.Iit supports SSHv2, TLS and SSL protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats. Served as a key point to transmit data to customer's critical equipment in a business network, the cybersecurity feature of the GS-6320-46S2C4XR protects the switch management and enhances the security of the mission-critical network without any extra deployment cost and effort.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR supports redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), and redundant power input system into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time could be less than 10ms to quickly bring the network back to normal operation.
AC and DC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one additional 36-60V DC power supply unit for redundant power supply. A redundant power system is also provided to enhance the reliability with either AC or DC power supply unit. The redundant power system is specifically designed to handle the demands of high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity.
Solution for IPv6 Networking
With the support for IPv6/IPv4 protocol, and easy and user-friendly management interfaces, the GS-6320-46S2C4XR is the best choice for IP surveillance, VoIP and wireless service providers to connect with the IPv6 network. It also helps SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment and without having to replace the network facilities even though ISPs establish the IPv6 FTTx edge network.
User-friendly Secure Management
For efficient management, the GS-6320-46S2C4XR is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces.
With the built-in web-based management interface, the GS-6320-46S2C4XR offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility.
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP v1 and v2 protocols.
For text-based management, it can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. For reducing product learning time, the GS-6320-46S2C4XR offers Cisco-like command and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches.
Moreover, the GS-6320-46S2C4XR offers remote secure management by supporting SSH, TLS and SNMPv3 connection which can encrypt the packet content at each session.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR provides event alert function to help to diagnose the abnormal device owing to whether or not there is a break of the network connection, or the rebooting response.
Robust Layer2 Features
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR can be programmed for advanced switch management function, such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD snooping. The GS-6320-46S2C4XR allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. Supporting 26 trunk groups, it enables a maximum of up to 16 ports per trunk and supports connection fail-over as well.
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR 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, TCP/UDP port number or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based user and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy.
Enhanced Security and Traffic Control
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR also provides DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrator can now build highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Flexible and Extendable 10Gb Ethernet Solution
10G Ethernet is a big leap in the evolution of Ethernet. Each of the 10G SFP+ slots in the GS-6320-46S2C4XR supports dual speed and 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX. With its 4-port, 10G Ethernet link capability and additional 4-port 1G Ethernet link capability, 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. The GS-6320-46S2C4XR provides broad bandwidth and powerful processing capacity.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The GS-6320-46S2C4XR supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
