SGS-6340-24T4S – NEW!

Layer 3 24-Port 10/100/1000T + 4-Port 1000X SFP Stackable Managed Switch

  • Overview
  • Powerful Layer 3 Gigabit Routing Solution for Enterprise Backbone and Data Center Networking
    PLANET SGS-6340-24T4S is a Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch that provides high-density performance, Layer 3 static routing, RIP (Routing Information Protocol) and OSPF (Open Shortest Path First). With 56Gbps switching fabric, the SGS-6340-24T4S can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to an enterprise backbone or high capacity servers. The powerful WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and Network Security features make the SGS-6340-24T4S perform effective data traffic control for ISP and enterprise VoIP, video streaming, and multicast applications.
    Layer 3 Routing Support
    The SGS-6340-24T4S enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 static routing manually, the RIP (Routing Information Protocol) or OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) settings automatically. The RIP can employ the hop count as a routing metric and prevent routing loops by implementing a limit on the number of hops allowed in a path from the source to a destination. The maximum number of hops allowed for the RIP is 15. The OSPF is an interior dynamic routing protocol for autonomous system based on link-state. The protocol creates a link-state database by exchanging link-states among Layer3 switches, and then uses the Shortest Path First algorithm to generate a route table based on that database.

    Abundant IPv6 Support
    The SGS-6340-24T4S provides IPv6 management and enterprise-level secure features such as SSH, ACL,WRR and RADIUS authentication. The SGS-6340-24T4S thus helps the enterprises to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment. In addition, you don’t need to replace the network facilities when the IPv6 FTTx edge network is built.

    High Performance
    The SGS-6340-24T4S boasts a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 56Gbps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.

    Robust Layer 2 Features
    The SGS-6340-24T4S can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, port aggregation, VLAN, Spanning Tree Protocol, WRR, bandwidth control and IGMP snooping. The SGS-6340-24T4S provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q, voice VLAN and GVRP Protocol. The VLAN groups allowed to be on the SGS-6340-24T4S will be maximally up to 256. By supporting port aggregation, the SGS-6340-24T4S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combined with multiple ports. It enables up to 128 groups for trunking with a maximum of 8 ports for each group.

    Excellent Traffic Control
    The SGS-6340-24T4S is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by telecoms. The WRR functionalities include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limitation which are particularly useful for multi-tenant unit, multi-business unit, Telco, or network service applications. It also empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources and guarantees the best in VoIP and video conferencing transmission.

    Powerful Security
    The SGS-6340-24T4S supports ACL policies comprehensively. The traffic can be classified by source/destination IP addresses, source/destination MAC addresses, IP protocols, TCP/UDP, IP precedence, time ranges and ToS. Moreover, various policies can be conducted to forward the traffic. The SGS-6340-24T4S also provides IEEE 802.1x port based access authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS, to ensure the port level security and block illegal users.

    Efficient Management
    The SGS-6340-24T4S supports IP stacking function that helps network managers to easily configure up to 24 switches in the same series via one single IP address instead of connecting and setting each unit one by one. For efficient management, the SGS-6340-24T4S Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the SGS-6340-24T4S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The SGS-6340-24T4S supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the SGS-6340-24T4S can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the SGS-6340-24T4S offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.

    Flexibility and Extension Solution
    The four mini-GBIC slots built in the SGS-6340-24T4S are compatible with 1000BASE-X and WDM SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (multi-mode fiber) to 10/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.

  • Applications
  • Server Farm Switch
    The SGS-6340-24T4S provides up to 28 Gigabit Ethernet ports for enterprises and network servers. It is ideal to be used as a server farm switch connecting to servers. With its port trunking function, an 8GB fat pipe is provided for connecting to the backbone if required.
    Enterprise Security and QoS Edge Switch
    With the IEEE 802.1x network access authentication, the SGS-6340-24T4S provides the MAC/IP/Protocol Access Control list and Port Security functions which can limit the number of MAC addresses to be passed through one specific port. The IGMP snooping and QoS features in the SGS-6340-24T4S improve the network efficiency and protect the network clients.
    Layer 3 VLAN Routing
    With the built-in robust Layer 3 traffic routing protocols, the SGS-6340-24T4S ensures reliable routing between VLANs and network segments. The routing protocols can be applied via VLAN interface. The SGS-6340-24T4S is certainly a cost-effective and ideal solution for enterprises.
