PLANET’s newly-revised FGSW-1816HPS Layer 2 PoE+ Managed Switch is designed for enterprises and industries where a network of PDs can be centrally managed. The Switch’s management functions have been enhanced to include intelligent PoE management, IPv6 management, ACL, GVRP, and more.
Cost-optimized Managed PoE+ Switch with L2/L4 Switching and Security
PLANET FGSW-1816HPS is an ideal Managed PoE+ Switch which provides cost-effective advantage to local area network and is widely accepted in the SMB office network. It offers intelligent Layer 2 data packet switching and management functions, friendly web user interface and stable operation. The model complies with IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) at an affordable price; the FGSW-1816HPS is equipped with 16 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet ports and 2 Gigabit TP/SFP combo interfaces with inner power system. With its 16 Fast Ethernet ports integrated with 802.3at PoE+ injector function and total power budget of up to 220 watts, it offers a rack-mountable, affordable, safe and reliable power solution for SMBs deploying Power over Ethernet networks, or requiring enhanced data security and network traffic management.
Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
The FGSW-1816HPS helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently with its advanced LED indication. Called “PoE Power Usage” found on the front panel of the FGSW-1816HPS Layer 2 PoE+ Managed Switch, it has four orange LEDs indicating the range of the current PoE power usage.
Solution for IPv6 Networking
With the support for IPv6/IPv4 protocol, and easy and friendly management interfaces, the FGSW-1816HPS is the ideal 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.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Surveillance Management
As a managed PoE Switch for surveillance network, the FGSW-1816HPS features the following intelligent PoE management functions:
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The FGSW-1816HPS can be configured to monitor a connected PD status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and it is without response, the FGSW-1816HPS will resume the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PD’s power source, thus reducing administrator management burden.
PoE Port Sequence
To prevent all the PoE ports of the FGSW-1816HPS from being active at the same time when the Switch has booted up, the PoE ports of the FGSW-1816HPS can be configured to allow each port to be activated at an interval time. In addition, the “Delay” setting is to delay power feeding on each port when the FGSW-1816HPS has completely booted up.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Besides being used for IP surveillance, the FGSW-1816HPS is certainly applicable to build any PoE network including VoIP and wireless LAN. Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to the environmental protection on the Earth, the FGSW-1816HPS can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs and enterprises save energy and budget.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The FGSW-1816HPS can be programmed for advanced switch management functions, such as Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), BPDU filtering, BPDU Guard, dynamic port link aggregation, IGMP/MLD snooping, DHCP relay agent, loop detection and GVRP, voice VLAN and the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). The Layer 2 protocol included is to help discover basic information about neighboring devices in the local broadcast domain. Other features included are the port-based/802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Layer 2/4 QoS, port mirroring, broadcast storm control and bandwidth control.
Enhanced Security and Traffic Control
The FGSW-1816HPS offers the 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/MAC address or defined typical network applications. The FGSW-1816HPS also provides DHCP Snooping, ARP Inspection and MAC Verification functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. Also included are per port MAC/IP address binding and MAC address binding. The network administrator can now build highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The cybersecurity features that virtually need no effort and cost to have included the protection of the switch management and the enhanced security of the mission-critical network. Both SSH and SSL protocols are utilized to provide strong protection against advanced threats. The network administrator can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
For efficient management, the FGSW-1816HPS is equipped with Web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the FGSW-1816HPS offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the FGSW-1816HPS can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet. Moreover, the FGSW-1816HPS offers secure remote management by supporting SNMPv3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexible and Extendable Uplink Solution
The FGSW-1816HPS provides 2 extra Gigabit TP/SFP combo interfaces supporting 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ45 copper to connect with surveillance network devices such as NVR, Video Streaming Server or NAS to facilitate surveillance management. Or through these fiber SFP slots occupied by the 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (small form-factor pluggable) fiber transceivers, it can be uplinked to a backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2km (multi-mode fiber) to 10/20/40/80/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well-suited for applications within the industrial data centers and distributions.
