  • Overview
  • High-Density, Resilient Deployment Switch Solution for Gigabit Networking of Enterprise, Campus and Data Center

    For the growing Gigabit network and IoT (Internet of Things) demand, PLANET has launched a new-generation Web Smart 1/10 Gigabit Switch solution, the GS-2240 switch series, to meet the needs of enterprises, telecoms and campuses for a large-scale network deployment. The GS-2240-24T4X is a Layer 2 Web Smart Switch, which comes with 24 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports and 4 10G SFP+ uplink slots. The GS-2240 switch series also provides a quick, safe and cost-effective 1/10G network solution for small and medium-sized businesses.
    Cost-effective 10Gbps Uplink Capacity

    PLANET has made a big leap in the evolution of Ethernet with its launch of the GS-2240-24T4X whose four 10G SFP+ slots support dual-speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX, meaning the administrator now can flexibly choose a suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or speed required to extend the network efficiently. They greatly support an SMB network to achieve 10Gbps high performance in a cost-effective way because 10GbE interface usually could be available in Layer 3 Switch, which could be too expensive to SMBs.

    Robust Layer 2 Features

    The GS-2240 switch series can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation (LACP), Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), SNMP, bandwidth control, LLDP, DHCP snooping, IGMP snooping0 and L2 MAC security control. The GS-2240 switch series provides IEEE 802.1Q tagged VLAN and private VLAN. With the supporting port aggregation, they allow the operation of a high-speed trunk by combining multiple ports and support fail-over as well.

    Efficient Traffic Control

    The GS-2240 switch series is loaded with powerful traffic management to enhance services to business-class data, voice, and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast, multicast and unknown unicast storm control, and per port bandwidth control. It guarantees the best performance for VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.
    Friendly and Secure Management

    For efficient management, the GS-2240 switch series is equipped with web, console, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the GS-2240 switch series offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard SNMP, the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet.
  • Applications
  • High Availability Mesh Networking Solution for Big Data System

    By means of improving the technology of Optical Fiber Ethernet with highly-flexible, highly-extendable and easy-to-install features, the GS-2240-24T4X offers up to 128Gbps data exchange speed via Optical Fiber interface and the transmission distance can be extended to 10km. The GS-2240 switch series features strong rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP) into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. The GS-2240 switch series is the ideal Big Data solution for data centers, service providers and telecoms to build redundant connection and establish high bandwidth for server farm.
    Extended 10G Network Infrastructure for SMBs/Workgroups with Cost-effective Web Smart Solution

    The GS-2240-24T4X performs 128 Gigabits per second non-blocking switch fabric so it can easily provide a local 10Gbps high bandwidth Ethernet network for the backbone of your department. With the four built-in SFP+ ports, the GS-2240-24T4X provides the uplink to the backbone network through the 10G Ethernet LR/SR SFP+ modules. It further improves the network efficiency and protects the network clients by offering the security features.
