  • Overview
  • A Perfect Managed PoE+ Switch with Full PoE+ Power Budget

    PLANET GS-5220-8P2T2S is a Layer 2+ Managed Gigabit Switch, which supports both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols and Layer 3 static routing capability, and provides 8 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring 30-watt 802.3at PoE+, 2 additional Gigabit copper ports and another 2 extra 100/1000BASE-X SFP fiber slots. Each of the eight Gigabit ports provides 30 watts of power, which means a total power budget of up to 240 watts can be utilized simultaneously without considering the different types of PoE applications being employed. It provides a quick, safe and cost-effective Power over Ethernet network solution to IP security surveillance for small businesses and enterprises.
    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-5220-8P2T2S features high-performance Gigabit IEEE 802.3af PoE (up to 15.4 watts) and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ (up to 30 watts) on all ports. It perfectly meets the power requirement of PoE VoIP phone and all kinds of PoE IP cameras such as IR, PTZ, speed dome cameras or even box type IP cameras with built-in fan and heater for high power consumption.

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S’s PoE capabilities also help to reduce deployment costs for network devices as a result of freeing from restrictions of power outlet locations. Power and data switching are integrated into one unit, delivered over a single cable and managed centrally. It thus eliminates cost for additional AC wiring and reduces installation time.

    Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Surveillance Management

    As a managed PoE Switch for surveillance network, the GS-5220-8P2T2S features intelligent PoE management functions:

    PD Alive Check

    Scheduled Power Recycling

    SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert

    PoE Schedule

    Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S can be configured to monitor a connected PD (Powered Device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and it is without response, the GS-5220-8P2T2S 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.
    Scheduled Power Recycling

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S allows each of the connected PDs to reboot at a specified time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of PD crash resulting from buffer overflow.
    SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert

    Though most NVR or camera management software offers SMTP email alert function, the GS-5220-8P2T2S further provides event alert function to help to diagnose the abnormal device owing to whether or not there is a break of the network connection, loss of PoE power or the rebooting response by the PD Alive Check process.
    PoE Schedule for Energy Saving

    Besides being used for IP surveillance, the GS-5220-8P2T2S 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 GS-5220-8P2T2S 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.
    Solution for IPv6 Networking

    With the support for IPv6/IPv4 protocol, and easy and friendly management interfaces, the GS-5220-8P2T2S is the best 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.
    IPv4 and IPv6 VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management

    To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the GS-5220-8P2T2S not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent layer 2 technologies, but also offers IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to crossover different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management and simpler networking application.

    Robust Layer2 Features

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S can be programmed for advanced switch management function, such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2/4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD snooping. The GS-5220-8P2T2S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. Supporting 6 trunk groups, it enables a maximum of up to 8 ports per trunk and supports connection fail-over as well.

    Powerful Security

    The SGS-5220-8P2T2S 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 port number or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based user and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy.

    Enhanced Security and Traffic Control

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S 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 administrator can now build highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.

    User-friendly Secure Management

    For efficient management, the GS-5220-8P2T2S is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, theGS-5220-8P2T2S offers an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The GS-5220-8P2T2S supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP v1 and v2 protocols. For reducing product learning time, the GS-5220-8P2T2S offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the GS-5220-8P2T2S offers remote secure management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connection which can encrypt the packet content at each session.

    Flexible and Extendable Solution

    The 2 mini-GBIC SFP slots built in the GS-5220-8P2T2S support dual speed as it features 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. Now the administrator can flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver according to not only the transmission distance, but also the transmission speed required. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2km (multi-mode fiber) and up to 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.

    Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.

  • Applications
  • Layer 2+ VLAN Static Routing and PoE Application

    With the built-in robust IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 traffic routing protocols, the GS-5220-8P2T2S ensures reliable routing between VLANs and network segments. The routing protocols can be applied by VLAN interface with up to 32 routing entries. The GS-5220-8P2T2S is certainly a cost-effective and ideal solution for enterprises.

    Providing up to 8 Gigabit High-power PoE ports and in-line power interface, the GS-5220-8P2T2S High-power PoE Switch can easily build a centrally-controlled power network shared by wireless Gigabit AP, IP phone system, or mega-pixel IP camera system group for the enterprises.

    PoE Wi-Fi Hotspot Solution with Extended Network Infrastructure for Public Spaces

    The GS-5220-8P2T2S comes with non-blocking design, desktop size and SFP fiber-optic modules, bringing network infrastructure higher flexibility but lower in cost. Providing eight 10/100/1000BASE-T PoE ports, two 10/100/1000BASE-T copper ports, in-line power interfaces and two Gigabit SFP interfaces, the GS-5220-8P2T2S can easily build a Networking Authentication on Wireless LAN Controllers system for the enterprises. For instance, it can work with the Wireless Controller and RADIUS Server to perform comprehensive security for wireless user authentication with powered APs.
