24-Port 100/1000 SFP with 8 Shared TP Managed Stackable Switch


  • Overview
  • Multi Port / Flexible Dual-Speed Fiber Optical Connective for Distance Extension Solution

    The FTTx network applications are part of our life particularly for the business and home use today. To carry out the long-distance networking deployment for FTTx and Metro system, PLANET introduces the latest Layer 2 Managed Core Fiber Switch- SGSW-24240 series providing SFP slots with multiple ports in the 1U high case. Each of the SFP slot supports Dual-Speed1000Base-SX / LX or 100Base-FX; that means, the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver according to not only the transmission distance but also the transmission speed required. The PLANET SGSW-24240 series fiber Switch is designed to help ISPs, campuses and enterprises improve their backbone and workgroup network applications by high performance, long distance and stable transmission quality. In addition to being a secure, fast, and varied central exchange platform for fiber optic network, the SGSW-24240 series brings the network service providers unprecedented convenience experience by offering the high flexibility and advantages.

    Cost-effective IPv6 Managed Gigabit Switch Solution

    The SGSW-24240 series which supports both IPv4 and IPv6 management functions. It can work with original network structure (IPv4) and also support the new network structure (IPv6) in the future. With easy and friendly management interfaces and plenty of management functions included, the SGSW-24240 series is the best choice for ISP to build the IPv6 FTTx edge service and for SMB to connect with the IPv6 network.

    Resilient Deployment Switch for Growing Long-Reach Networking of Enterprise, Telecoms and Campus

    The SGSW-24240 series Switch is the Layer 2 Managed Stackable Gigabit Switch series which provides 24 100/1000 dual-speed SFP slots8 shared Gigabit TP ports, and 2 dedicated High-Speed HDMI-like interfaces for stacking with the series of switches. By applying the SGSW-24240 series Switch, up to 16 units384 fiber-optical ports can be managed by a stacking group and you can add ports and functionality as needed. The 2 built-in stacking ports providing 5Gbps bandwidth and up to 20Gbps Bi-directional speed, it can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking for backbone or high capacity network server with 68Gbps switching fabric per unit. The stacking technology also enables the chassis-based switches to be integrated into SGSW-24240 series Managed Switch but without the expensive up-front cost.

    High Reliability Stacking Management

    The SGSW-24240 series applies the advantage of stackable technology to manage the stack group with one single IP address, which helps network managers to easily manage a stack of switches instead of connecting and setting each unit one by one. Through its high bandwidth tunnel and stacking technology, the SGSW-24240 series gives the enterprises, service providers and Telecoms flexible control over port density, uplinks and switch stack performance. Stack redundancy of the SGSW-24240 series ensures data integrity be retained even if one switch in the stack fails. You can even hot-swap switches without disrupting the network, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.

    Robust Layer 2 Features

    The SGSW-24240 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 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP Snooping.

Via aggregation of supporting ports, the SGSW-24240 series allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. It enables maximum up to 12 groups of 16 ports for port link aggregation, and supports fail-over as well.

    Easy and Friendly Traffic Control

    PLANET SGSW-24240 series is loaded with powerful but easy traffic management and QoS features to enhance services offered by telecoms. The QoS features include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limiting that are particular useful for multi-tenant unit, multi business unit, Telco, or Network Service Provider applications like VoIP, video streaming and multicast applications. The embedded handy QoS configuration wizard helps you set up a typical network application rules easily and quickly via Web interface. The SGSW-24240 series also empowers the enterprises or campus to take full advantages of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance in Voice and Video conferencing transmission.

    Efficient and Secure Management

    For efficient management, the SGSW-24040 series Managed Ethernet Switch is equipped with console, WEB and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-Based management interface, the SGSW-24040 series offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The SGSW-24040 series supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the SGSW-24040 series can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the SGSW-24040 series offers secure remote management by supporting SSHSSL and SNMPv3connection which encrypt the packet content at each session.

    Enhanced Security

    The SGSW-24240 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 applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises of 802.1x Port-Based and MAC-Based user and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communications between edge ports can be protected to ensure user privacy. New SGSW-24240 series net Security 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.

    AC / DC Power Redundant to Ensure Continuous Operation

    Particularly for the SGSW-24240R, it is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one DC -48V power supply unit to provide an enhanced reliable and scalable redundant power supply installation. The continuous power system is specifically designed to fulfill the demands of high tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity. The -48V DC power supply implemented makes SGSW-24240R the telecom level device that can be located at the electronic room.

  • Applications
  • Carrier Class Backbone Switch for the Campus and Community
    For small area network communication such as in campus and community, the PLANET SGSW-24240 series Managed Stackable Switches enable an affordable and scalable network deployment. Multiple SGSW-24240 series Switches may be connected together to constitute a chain or ring stack topology using the 5Gbps stacking ports as interconnect links. Up to 16 units, 384 high-density Gigabit Ethernet ports can be managed by a stacking group with a single IP address. Furthermore, up to 384 mini-GBIC / SFP ports are available for remote uplink connectivity in a stacking group and provide the uplink to the edge network through 1000Base-SX/LX or 100Base-FX SFP modules. The SGSW-24240 series stackable switching system gives you the flexibility to expand small area network when needed.
    FTTx / MAN Application
    The SGSW-24240 series offers multiple flexible fiber optical connective capability and helps to extend the coverage from backbone to edge network applications. The stackable fiber switch also provides high scalability for current and future network infrastructure as they can flexibly work with other PLANET SGSW series Gigabit Switches to meet the various networking requirements and simplify the network deployment and management of metro access networks. 

    The SGSW-24240 series applies the double tag VLAN (Q-in-Q) technology to provide low cost and easy operation for service providers carrying traffic for multiple customers across their networks. It allows the service providers to offer certain services such as Internet access on VLANs for specific customers and meanwhile still can provide other types of services for other customers on other VLANs. 

    With SNMPv3 support, the SNMPv3 security structure in the SGSW-24240 consists of various security models, with each model having its own security levels for the ISP and Service Provider.
