Powerful Layer 3 Routing Solution for Enterprise and Data Center Networks
PLANET SGS-6341-48T4X is a Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch that provides high-density performance, Layer 3 static routing, RIP (Routing Information Protocol) and OSPF (Open Shortest Path First). With 176Gbps switching fabric and 4 10Gbps uplink ports, the SGS-6341-48T4X can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to an enterprise backbone or high capacity servers. The powerful WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and network security features make the SGS-6341-48T4X perform effective data traffic control for ISP and enterprise VoIP, video streaming, and multicast applications.
High Performance 10Gbps Ethernet Capacity
The four SFP+ slots built in the SGS-6341-48T4X boasts a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 176Gbps, 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.
IP Stacking Management
The SGS-6341-48T4X 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. The IP Stacking technology groups PLANET SGS-6341 switch series together to enable centralized management through a single unit, regardless of physical location or switch type, as long as they are connected to the same local network.
Layer 3 Routing Support
The SGS-6341-48T4X enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 static routing manually, and the RIP or OSPF settings automatically. The RIP can employ the hop count as a routing metric and prevent routing loops by implementing a limit on the number of hops allowed in a path from the source to a destination. 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.
Full IPv6 Support
The SGS-6341-48T4X 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 SGS-6341-48T4X 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 SGS-6341-48T4X 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 SGS-6341-48T4X 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 SGS-6341-48T4X 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 SGS-6341-48T4X 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 SGS-6341-48T4X Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the SGS-6341-48T4X offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The SGS-6341-48T4X supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software.
For reducing product learning time, the SGS-6341-48T4X offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the SGS-6341-48T4X offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The SGS-6341-48T4X 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.
