IPv6 Routing and 10G Ethernet Switch Solutions with PoE Plus for SMBs
PLANET GS-5220-48P4X high-density, Layer 3 Managed PoE Switch series features PLANET intelligent PoE functions to improve the availability of critical business applications. It provides IPv6/IPv4 dual stack management and built-in Layer 3 dynamic OSPFv2 and static routing capability along with 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring IEEE 802.3at PoE+ and 4 additional 10G SFP+ uplink slots. With a total power budget of up to 400/600 watts for different kinds of PoE applications, the GS-5220-48P4X series provides a quick, safe and cost-effective PoE network solution for small businesses and enterprises.
The GS-5220-48P4X series can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to deploying Power over Ethernet networks, data center/service provider backbone or high capacity servers. It can work with a 10Gbps SFP+ server adapter to help SMBs build the 10Gbps Ethernet network providing 10Gbps NAS (Network Attached Storage) or heavy transmission of video streaming service.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The GS-5220-48P4X 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 and Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1w RSTP) into customer’s network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time could be less than 10ms to quickly bring the network back to normal operation.
Layer 3 Routing Support
The GS-5220-48P4X series 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.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The cybersecurity feature included to protect the switch management in a mission-critical network virtually needs no effort and cost to install. The SSH, TLS 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.
Flexible and Extendable 10Gbps Ethernet Solution
Each of the SFP+ slot supports dual speed 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX/BX, 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. With its 4-port, 10Gbps Ethernet link capability, the GS-5220-48P4X series provides broad bandwidth and powerful processing capacity.
Redundant AC/DC Power Supply to Ensure Continuous Operation
The GS-5220-48P4XR and GS-5220-48PL4XR are particularly equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one 36~60V DC power supply unit to provide an enhanced reliable and scalable redundant power supply. The continuous power system is specifically designed to fulfill the demands of high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity. With the 36~60V DC power supply, it is able to act as a telecom-level device that can be located in the electronic room.
Convenient and Smart ONVIF Devices with Detection Feature
PLANET has newly developed an awesome feature -- ONVIF Support -- which is specifically designed for co-operating with Video IP Surveillances. From the GS-5220-48P4X series’ GUI, clients just need one click to search and show all of the ONVIF devices via network application. In addition, clients can upload floor images to switch and allows for deployment location of surveillance devices for easier inspection and planning. Moreover, clients can get real-time surveillance’s information and online/offline status, and also allows PoE reboot control from GUI.
Centralized Power Management for Gigabit Ethernet PoE Networking
To fulfill the needs of higher power required PoE network applications with Gigabit speed transmission, the GS-5220-48P4X series features IEEE 802.3at PoE+ that combines up to 36 watts of power output and data per port over one Cat5E/6 Ethernet cable. It is designed specifically to meet the demand of higher power consuming network PD (powered device) such as IR, PTZ, speed dome cameras or even box-type IP camera with a built-in fan and heater. Compliant with both 802.3at and 802.3af PoE, it allows more flexibility in power requirement for a variety of PDs.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Surveillance Management
As a managed PoE Switch for surveillance network, the GS-5220-48P4X series features four special PoE management functions:
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The GS-5220-48P4X series can be configured to monitor connected PD status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and has no response, the GS-5220-48P4X series 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 and reduce administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The GS-5220-48P4X series allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras to reboot at a specific time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of IP camera crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Besides IP surveillance, the GS-5220-48P4X series is certainly applicable to construct any PoE network including VoIP and wireless LAN. Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environment protection on the Earth, the GS-5220-48P4X series 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 or enterprises save power and money.
IPv4 and IPv6 VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customer stay on top of business, the GS-5220-48P4X series does not only offer ultra high transmission performance, but also IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to cross over different VLAN groups and IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The GS-5220-48P4X series can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2/4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD snooping. The GS-5220-48P4X series provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, and the VLAN groups allowed will be maximally up to 256. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the GS-5220-48P4X series allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. The switch enables a maximum of up to 26 trunk groups with 4 ports for each trunk group and supports connection fail-over as well.
The GS-5220-48P4X series 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 ports or defined typical network application. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based customer and device authentication. As to private VLAN function, communications between edge ports can be protected to ensure customer privacy.
Enhanced Security and Traffic Control
The GS-5220-48P4X series also provides functions of DHCP snooping, IP source guard and dynamic ARP inspection so as to prevent IP from attacking and discarding ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrators can now construct a highly-secure corporate network with considerably less time and effort than before.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack
As the GS-5220-48P4X series supports the IPv6 Protocol, it helps SMBs and enterprises to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment, meaning the existing network facilities need not be replaced.
