60 Watts of Power Using 4-Pair UTP
The GS-4210-16UP4C Ultra PoE solution adopts the IEEE 802.3at/af standard. Instead of delivering power over 2 twisted UTP pairs, weather it be end-span (Pin 1, 2, 3 and 6) or mid-span (Pin 4, 5, 7 and 8), the unit can provide up to 60 watts of power by using all the four twisted pairs of a standard Cat.5e/6 Ethernet cabling. To power the four twisted pairs, two PSE controllers are used to power both the data and the spare pairs. The unit can provide sufficient power the following applications
- PoE PTZ speed dome
- AIO (All-in-One) touch PC
- Remote digital signage display
- High Powered PoE Applications that require 60 Watts of Power
Advanced Smart PoE Functions for Efficient Power Management
The GS-4210-16UP4C features the following PoE management functions:
- PD Alive Check
- Scheduled Power Recycling
- PoE Schedule
- PoE Usage Monitoring
Scheduled Power Recycling/PD Alive Check
The GS-4210-16UP4C can be configured to have each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points reboot at a specified time each week. This will reduce the likelihood of IP cameras or AP crashes resulting from buffer overflow. The GS-4210-16UP4C can be configured to monitor connected PD (Powered Device) status in real time via ping requests. With the PD Alive Check feature, if the PD stops working and responding, the GS-4210-16UP4C will resume the PoE port power and reactivate the PD back to work. The unit simplifies power management with its automated PoE ports resetting of the PDs power source.
PoE Schedule Function/PoE Usage
The GS-4210-16UP4C is a powerful but energy efficient unit with advanced PoE management options. The PoE schedule function helps enable and disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals. This is a powerful function that helps SMBs or Enterprises save power and money. The unit also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours. The units web management interface, enables administrators to access simplified PoE Usage Monitoring to easily monitor the status of power usage using the connected PDs in real time.
Noise-Free Fan Operation
The GS-4210-16UP4C is enclosed in a desktop-sized metal encasement and offers a silent operation. The unit supports smart fan technology that automatically controls the speed of the built-in fan to minimize noise and optimize the temperature of the PoE switch to provide optimal power output capabilities.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
With its ability to support both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the GS-4210-16UP4C is a future-proof switch that helps SMBs with an IPv4 network easily upgrade to IPv6 without the need to replace the unit.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The GS-4210-16UP4C can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), loop and BPDU guard, IGMP snooping, and MLD snooping. Via the link aggregation, the GS-4210-16UP4C allows for the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports and supports fail-over as well. With its Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), its Layer 2 protocol helps discover basic information about neighboring devices on the local broadcast domain.
Efficient Traffic Control
The GS-4210-16UP4C features robust QoS features and powerful traffic management to enhance services to business-class data, voice and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast/multicast storm control, per port bandwidth control, IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. The unit offers optimal VoIP and video stream transmission.
The GS-4210-16UP4C offers comprehensive IPv4/IPv6 Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) to provide for maximum security. The unit 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. Security features also includes the 802.1X port-based user and device authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS to ensure the port level security and block unauthorized users. With its protected port function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to guarantee user privacy. In addition, its port security function limits the number of network devices on a given port.
Advanced Network Security
The GS-4210-16UP4C also provides DHCP snooping, IP source guard and dynamic ARP inspection functions to prevent IP snooping attacks and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. Network administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks in considerably less time and effort than before.
The GS-4210-16UP4C is equipped with web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces to allow for efficient management. With its built-in web-based management interface, the GS-4210-16UP4C offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. With the standard SNMP, the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet. In addition, the GS-4210-16UP4C offers secure remote management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexibility and Long-distance Extension Solution
The unit features four mini-GBIC slots that support 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceivers and supports SFP auto-detection. This allows the unit to uplink to the backbone of a switch and monitoring centers located in distant locations. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2 kilometers (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 Diagnostic Mechanism
The GS-4210-16UP4C supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that monitors the real-time parameters of the SFP such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current and transceiver supply voltage.
