It is compatible with 802.1D/w/s, 802.1Q, 802.1p, 802.3ad, 802.3x, GVRP, DHCP, SNTP, etc. The XGS3-24242 also supports IPv6/IPv4 routing protocols including Layer 3 IP static routing, RIPv1/v2, RIPng, OSPFv2/v3, and VRRP protocols.Built in with abundant multicast features, the XGS3-24242 supports rich L2 multicast features such as IGMPv1/v2/v3 and MLDv1/v2 snooping, and L3 multicast protocols -- DVMRP, PIM-DM, PIM-SM and PIM-SSM. Offering the rich application experience, the product supports multicast VLAN registration, multicast receive control and illegal multicast source detect functions. The XGS3-24242 solution performs a cost-effective solution for today with the ability to expand as network demands grow.
Full IPv6 Support
The XGS3-24242 provides IPv6 management and enterprise-level secure features such as SSH, ACL, WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and RADIUS authentication. The XGS3-24242 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.
Excellent and Secure Traffic Control
The XGS3-24242 is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by telecoms and enterprises. 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.
The ACL policies supported can classify the traffic 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 XGS3-24242 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. Thus, the XGS3-24242 empowers ISP and enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance in VoIP and video conferencing transmission.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The XGS3-24242 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. It also supports 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q, voice VLAN and GVRP Protocol. By supporting port aggregation, the XGS3-24242 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.
For efficient management, the XGS3-24242 Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the XGS3-24242 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The XGS3-24242 supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the XGS3-24242 can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the XGS3-24242 offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.
Flexibility and Extension Solution
The XGS3-24242 provides 24 100/1000Mbps dual speed SFP Fiber ports and four 1/10Gbps SFP+ Fiber ports. Each of the SFP+ slots supports Dual-Speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX. Therefore, 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) or up to 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 km (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
Intelligent SFP/SFP+ Diagnosis Mechanism
The XGS3-24242 supports SFP/SFP+DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP/SFP+, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
AC and DC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation
The XGS3-24242 is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one empty power supply slot for redundant DC power supply – XGS3-PWR150-48 installation, which supports -40 ~ -60V DC power input. With XGS3-PWR150-48 DC power supply implemented, the XGS3-24242 can be applied as the telecom level device. A redundant power system is also provided to enhance the reliability with either AC or DC power supply unit. The redundant power system is specifically designed to handle the demands of high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity.
Core Routing Switch
With 24 Gigabit ports, 4 SFP+ fiber interfaces and Layer 3 IP/multicast routing capability, the XGS3-24242 provides high-performance solution for telecoms, network service providers and enterprises.
High-density and VRRP Backbone Routing Switch
With the built-in robust IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 IP and multicast routing protocols, the XGS3-24242 ensures reliable routing between VLANs and network segments. The routing protocols can be applied by VLAN interface with up to 1K routing entries. The high-density routing interfaces provide expandability to meet the growing network’s needs. Moreover, with the hot VLAN feature – Q-in-Q (VLAN stacking) – supported, it allows the service providers to offer certain services such as Internet access on specific VLANs for specific customers and yet still provides other types of services for their other customers on other VLANs.
Data Center Security and QoS Switch
The XGS3-24242 performs 208 Gigabits per second non-blocking switch fabric, so it can easily provide a local, high bandwidth, and Gigabit Ethernet network for the backbone of your department. With the four built-in SFP+ ports, the XGS3-24242 provides the 10G uplink to the backbone network through 10G Ethernet LR/SR SFP+ modules. It further improves the network efficiency and protects the network clients by offering the security and QoS features.
