L2+ 20-Port 10/100/1000T + 4-Port Gigabit TP/SFP Combo Managed Switch

  • Overview
  • Cost-effective IPv6 Managed Gigabit Switch Solution for Enterprises
    PLANET WGSW-24040 series is a Layer 2+ managed Gigabit Switch that features 24-Port 10/100/1000BASE-T + 4-Port Shared 100/1000Base-X SFP and supports static Layer 3 routing for enterprise-level network. The abundant L2 / L4 switching engine offered by the WGSW-24040 series performs effective data traffic control for enterprises and VoIP service providers, video streaming, and multicast applications. Providing user-friendly but advanced IPv6 / IPv4 management interfaces, it is well suited for backbone and workgroup network applications by providing affordability, high performance, and stable transmission quality.
    Solution for IPv6 Networking
    By supporting IPv6 / IPv4 dual stack and plenty of management functions with easy and friendly management interfaces, the WGSW-24040 series is the best choice for video, voice and wireless service providers to connect with the IPv6 network. It also helps SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment but is not necessary to replace the network facilities while the ISP constructs the IPv6 FTTx edge network.
    Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 Software VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
    To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the WGSW-24040 series not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent layer 2 technologies, but also IPv4/IPv6 software VLAN routing feature which allows to cross over different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly secured, flexible management and simpler networking application.

    Robust Layer2 Features
    The WGSW-24040 series 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. Via the link aggregation of supporting ports, the WGSW-24040 series allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports. It enables a maximum of 12 trunk groups with 8 ports per group, and supports connection fail-over as well.

    Powerful Security
    The WGSW-24040 series offers comprehensive layer2 to layer4 access control list (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict to 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.

    Enhanced Security and Traffic Control
    The WGSW-24040 series 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 construct highly-secured corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.

    User-friendly Secure Management
    For efficient management, the WGSW-24040 managed switch series is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the WGSW-24040 series offers an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. For reducing product learning time, the WGSW-24040 series offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches. The WGSW-24040 series supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on standard of SNMP v1 and v2 protocol. Moreover, the WGSW-24040 series 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 four mini-GBIC SFP slots built in the WGSW-24040 series support dual speed as it features 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules, meaning 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 above 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 WGSW-24040 series 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.
    Redundant AC / DC Power Supply to Ensure Continuous Operation
    The WGSW-24040R is particularly equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one 36~60V DC 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. With the 36~60V DC power supply, the WGSW-24040R is able to act as a telecom level device that can be located in the electronic room


  • Applications
  • High Performance Backbone / Server Farm Switch

    Gigabit Ethernet supported equipment has become the fundamental unit of enterprises and network servers. With up to 48 Gigabits per second of non-blocking switch fabric, the WGSW-24040 series can easily provide the high bandwidth required from now on. It 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 WGSW-24040 series can offer the uplink to the edge network through Gigabit Ethernet LX / SX SFP modules with the four SFP ports.

    Department / Edge Security and QoS Switch

    The WGSW-24040 series 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 16 Gigabit per second switch fabric and high bandwidth for backbone connection. The WGSW-24040 series improves the network efficiency and safeguards the network clients with the powerful features:

    • IPv6 / IPv4 management
    • Layer 2 to Layer 4 security
    • QoS
    • 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based network access authentication security
