ffective Managed PoE Switch for SMB Networking
The PLANET FGSW-2612PVM Switch features IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) function which optimizes the installation and safe power management of network devices such as wireless access points (AP), Voice over IP (VoIP) phones and IP Surveillance cameras. IEEE 802.3af PoE capabilities reduce installation costs of add-in network productivity devices. It frees the wireless AP deployment from restrictions of power outlet locations. With PoE features, power and data switching are integrated into one unit and delivered over a single cable, eliminating costs for additional AC wiring and reducing installation time. It provides a compact, affordable, safe and reliable power solution for small to medium enterprises.
For catering to the need of easy management and the centralized SNMP application to monitor the status of switches and traffic per port, the cost-effective Managed PoE Switche, the FGSW-2612PVM offers the following key features:
• 802.3af PoE
• SNMP and 4 RMON groups
• WEB / SSL / Telnet
• Access Control List
• 802.1Q / Q-in-Q VLAN
• IGMP Snooping
• Rapid Spanning Tree
• 802.1X Authentication / RADIUS
Power over Ethernet, Easy Cabling Installation
The PoE in-line power following the standard IEEE 802.3af makes the FGSW-2612PVM able to power on 12 PoE compliant devices at the distance up to 100 meters through the 4-pair Cat 5/5e UTP wire. With data and power over Ethernet from one unit, the FGSW-2612PVM shall reduce cables deployment and eliminates the need for dedicated electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place. A wire carries both data and power lowering the installation costs, simplifying the installation effort and eliminating the need for electricians or extension cords. It is also proud of the key feature – energy saving. With more efficient switching power supply, the efficiency of the FGSW-2612PVM would be much better than four linear power adapters in a long run.
Centralized Power Distribution with Remote Management
The remote PoE management functions of FGSW-2612PVM make it easy to survey and control the PoE power provision to the devices and ensure interoperability with equipment from other vendors. Via Web interface, SNMP trap and SNMP monitoring, the manager can get the PoE devices status and alert immediately. The over-temperature protection of the PoE Switch offers a safety and stable PoE operating by limit the output power according to detected temperature to prevent destructive breakdown due to un-expected overheating.
High Performance Wire-Speed Switching
The PLANET FGSW-2612PVM offers 24 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports and 2 Gigabit TP/SFP combo ports. The two Gigabit TP/SFP combo ports can be either 1000Base-T for 10/100/1000Mbps or 1000Base-SX/LX through SFP (Small Factor Pluggable) interface. PLANET FGSW-2612PVM boasts a high performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 8.8Gbps. Its two built-in GbE uplink ports also offer incredible extensibility, flexibility and connectivity to the Core switch or Servers.
Afford the current network to grow and expand, the PLANET FGSW-2612PVM provides console and telnetcommand line interface, advanced WEB and SNMP management interface to fill this kind of demand. With its built-in Web-Based management, the FGSW-2612PVM offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The FGSW-2612PVM supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be monitored via any standard-based management software. For Text-Based management, the FGSW-2612PVM can also be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the FGSW-2612PVM offers secure remote management by supporting Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.
Robust Layer 2 Features
For efficient management, via WEB interface the FGSW-2612PVM can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, Port link aggregation, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-QVLAN, Port Mirroring, Rapid Spanning Tree and ACL security. Additionally, the firmware includes advanced features such as IGMP snooping, QoS (Quality of Service), broadcast storm and bandwidth control, to enhance bandwidth utilization.
Advanced Security and Quality of Service
The PLANET FGSW-2612PVM offers comprehensive Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) to filter out unwanted traffic. Its protection mechanisms comprises of RADIUS and Port-Based 802.1X user and device authentication. Moreover, the switch provides MAC filter, Static MAC, IP/MAC binding and Port Securityfor enforcing security policies to the edge. The administrators can now construct highly secured corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
To ensure IP voice and video communication get the quality of service needed, the FGSW-2612PVM classifies traffic and prioritizes Layer 2 802.1p or Layer 3 IP DSCP traffic into four hardware queues that support strict or Weighted Round Robin (WRR) queuing algorithms. It also empowers the SMB IP office to take full advantages of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance in VoIP and Video conferencing transmission.
