24-Port Layer 2 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch W/2 SFP Interfaces


  • Overview
  • Cost-Optimized Managed Switch for Small and Medium Businesses
    PLANET GS-4210-24T2S is an ideal Gigabit 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. Besides the hot IPv6 / IPv4 management and abundant L2 / L4 switching functions, the GS-4210-24T2S comes with fanless feature and green technology to provide a quiet, energy-saving, high-speed and reliable office network environment.
    The GS-4210-24T2S is equipped with 24 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 additional 100/1000BASE-X SFP interfaces with inner power system. It offers a rack-mountable, affordable, safe and reliable Gigabit network switch solution for SMBs deploying networks, or requiring enhanced data security and network traffic management.
    Robust Layer 2 Features
    The GS-4210-24T2S can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree protocol (MSTP), Loop and BPDU Guard, IGMP Snooping, and MLD Snooping. Via the link aggregation, the GS-4210-24T2S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as a 16Gbps fat pipe, and supports fail-over as well. Also, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is the Layer 2 protocol included to help discover basic information about neighboring devices on the local broadcast domain.
    Efficient Traffic Control
    The GS-4210-24T2S is loaded with robust QoS features and powerful traffic management to enhance services to business-class data, voice, and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast / multicast / unicast storm control, per port bandwidth control, 802.1p / CoS / IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. It guarantees the best performance at VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.
    Enhanced and Secure Management
    For efficient management, the GS-4210-24T2S is equipped with console, Web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the GS-4210-24T2S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the GS-4210-24T2S offers secure remote management by supporting HTTPS and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
    Powerful Security
    PLANET GS-4210-24T2S offers comprehensive IPv4 / IPv6 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 applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1X port-based authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS to ensure the port level security and block illegal users. With the protected port function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to guarantee user privacy. Furthermore, port security function allows limiting the number of network devices on a given port.
    Advanced Network Security
    The GS-4210-24T2S also provides DHCP snooping, IP source guard and dynamic ARP inspection functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrators can now construct highly-secured corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
    Flexible Extension Solution
    The two mini-GBIC slots built in the GS-4210-24T2S are compatible with the 100BASE-FX / 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceiver to uplink to backbone switch and monitor center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2km (multi-mode fiber) up to above 10/20/30/40/50/60/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
    Fanless Design
    Adopting the latest chip process and green technology, the GS-4210-24T2S successfully reduces substantial power consumption with the fanless and noiseless design collocating with the effective cooler. Therefore, the GS-4210-24T2S is able to operate stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance.
  • Applications
  • Department / Edge Security and QoS Switch
    The GS-4210-24T2S connects up to 24 high speed workstations in the Ethernet environment, in which its two SFP Mini-GBIC interfaces uplink to a department backbone. Moreover, the Switch provides 52Gbps switch fabric and high bandwidth for backbone connection. The GS-4210-24T2S improves the network efficiency and safeguards the network clients with its powerful features:
    ■ IPv6 / IPv4 management
    ■ Layer 2 to Layer 4 security
    ■ QoS
    ■ 802.1x port-based and MAC-based network access authentication security
    ■ Multicast IGMP snooping

    The advanced functionality of the GS-4210-24T2S eliminates traditional issues associated with the use of Ethernet. Users can be separated with advanced VLAN functionality to enhance security. It makes the GS-4210-24T2S one of the best and most cost-effective switch solutions for SMBs.

    High Performance Backbone / Server Farm Switch
    Gigabit Ethernet supported equipment has become the fundamental unit of enterprises and network servers. With up to 52Gbps non-blocking switch fabric, the GS-4210-24T2S can easily provide a local high bandwidth Gigabit Ethernet network for backbone of enterprises or telecoms. With its port trunking function, a 16 GB fat pipe is provided to connect to the backbone if required. It is ideal to be used as a server farm switch connecting to servers. The GS-4210-24T2S can offer the uplink to the edge network through Gigabit Ethernet LX/SX SFP modules with the two SFP ports.
    FTTX / MAN Application
    The GS-4210-24T2S applies the double tag VLAN (Q-in-Q) technology to providing low cost and easy operation for service providers carrying traffic for multiple customers across their networks. It features SNMP v3 and RMON Groups. The SNMPv3 security structure consists of security models, with each model having its own security levels. With two dual-speed SFP slots built in, the deployment distance of the GS-4210-24T2S can be extended up to 120 kilometers (Single-mode fiber), which provides a high-performance edge service for FTTx solutions.

    To build a network solution of FTTH (Fiber to the Home) or FTTC (Fiber to the Curb) for ISPs, and FTTB (Fiber to the Building) for enterprises, the various distances of SFP and Bidi (WDM) transceivers are optional for customers’ choices. For security and various applications, the 24 Gigabit ports of the GS-4210-24T2S can be configured with VLAN settings and connected to different units, offices, floors, houses and departments.
