ONVIF Support Allows Effective and Centralized Control Over IP-based Security Products
The IGS-6325-24UP4X switch offers ONVIF support as part of its versatile feature set for seamless integration with IP surveillance cameras. Through the switch's web GUI, users can easily search for and display all ONVIF-compliant devices on their LAN.
Users can also upload floor plans to the switch and place IP surveillance cameras on the plan for more intuitive planning and faster inspection in the future. Additionally, the web GUI provides real-time surveillance information, online/offline status, and the ability to remotely reboot cameras.
Intelligent Alive Check for Powered Devices
The IGS-6325-24UP4X can be configured to monitor the status of connected powered devices (PDs) in real time through ping action. If a PD stops working and responding, the IGS-6325-24UP4X will recycle the PoE port power and bring the PD back to working condition. This greatly enhances reliability, as the assigned PoE port automatically reboots the PD, reducing the administrator's management burden.
PoE Scheduling to Save Energy
By implementing the "PoE schedule" function, businesses can reduce their energy consumption during non-business hours or periods of low network usage. This not only helps to reduce energy costs but also minimizes the overall carbon footprint of the organization.
Furthermore, the IGS-6325-24UP4X's PoE scheduling feature provides a convenient and easy-to-use interface for managing power usage. The user can easily set the time intervals for each PoE port, allowing for more efficient power management.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The IGS-6325-24UP4X enables connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specific time each week. This will reduce the chance of IP camera or AP crashes resulting from buffer overflow.
Layer 3 Routing Support
The IGS-6325-24UP4X allows administrators to boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN static routing manually or automatically through the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) or Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) settings.
The RIP uses hop count as a routing metric and prevents routing loops by setting a limit on the number of hops allowed in a path from source to destination.
The OSPF is an interior dynamic routing protocol for autonomous systems based on link state. The protocol creates a database of link states 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.
Reliable 10Gb Ethernet Solution
The emergence of 10G Ethernet marks a significant advancement in Ethernet technology. The IGS-6325-24UP4X is a powerful networking device that offers four 10G SFP+ slots capable of supporting three different speeds. These slots can operate at 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1G/2.5GBASE-SX/LX backwards, providing administrators with flexibility in choosing the most suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver based on the required transmission distance and speed. With ample bandwidth and robust processing capacity, the IGS-6325-24UP4X provides an efficient solution for administrators seeking to enhance their network infrastructure.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The IGS-6325-24UP4X supports SSHv2 and TLSv1.2 protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats. It includes a range of cybersecurity features such as DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard, ARP Inspection Protection, 802.1x port-based, and MAC-based network access control, RADIUS and TACACS+ user accounts management, SNMPv3 authentication, and more to provide a comprehensive security solution.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The IGS-6325-24UP4X Series 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 dual power input system into customer’s industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. In a simple Ring network, the recovery time of data link can be as fast as 10ms.
Effective Alarm Alert for Better Protection
The IGS-6325-24UP4X supports a Fault Alarm feature that can alert users when there is an issue with the switches. This feature saves time and resources by quickly identifying the problem, eliminating the need for laborious troubleshooting efforts.
Digital Input and Digital Output for External Alarm
The IGS-6325-24UP4X supports digital input and output on its front panel. These features allow users to detect and log the status of external devices, such as door intrusion detectors, using digital input. It also enables the sending of an event alarm to administrators. Digital output can be used to alert administrators when the IGS-6325-24UP4X experiences a link down, link up, or power failure.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The IGS-6325-24UP4X is capable of advanced Layer 2 switch management functions, including dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control, IGMP snooping, and MLD snooping.
