16-Port Managed Switch
IPv6 Routing and 10G Ethernet Switch Solutions for SMBs
PLANET’s GS-5220-16T4S2X Layer 2+ Managed Gigabit Switch supports IPv4/IPv6 protocols and hardware Layer 3 static routing capability. The unit provides 16 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports, 4 additional Gigabit SFP slots and 2 10G SFP+ uplink slots. The GS-5220-16T4S2X series can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to a data center/service provider backbone or high capacity servers. They can work with a 10Gbps SFP+ server adapter to help SMBs build the 10Gbps Ethernet network providing 10Gbps NAS (Network Attached Storage) or heavy transmission of video streaming service at an affordable price.
Cost-effective 10Gbps Uplink Capacity
10G is a big leap in the evolution of Ethernet. The two 10G SFP+ slots of the GS-5220-16T4S2X supports dual-speed 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX. This allows administrators to choose the suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network. 10GbE interfaces are normally found in Layer 3 Switches, which can be expansive for SMBs. The GS-5220-16T4S2X is cost-effective because it supports SMB networks to achieve maximum performance.
Flexible and Extendable Solution
The 4 mini-GBIC SFP slots built in the GS-5220-16T4S2X supports dual speed as it features 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. Now the administrator can 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 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within enterprise data centers and distributions.
Solution for IPv6 Networking
The GS-5220 series supports IPv6/IPv4 dual stack and works well with IP surveillance, VoIP and wireless service providers. It also helps SMBs step into the IPv6 era with the lowest investment without having to replace network facilities while the ISPs construct the IPv6 FTTx edge network.
IPv4 and IPv6 VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the GS-5220-16T4S2X not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent Layer 2 technologies. It also offers an IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to crossover different VLANs and IP addresses for the purpose of having high security, flexible management and simpler networking applications.
Robust Layer2 Features
The GS-5220 series can be programmed for advanced switch management functions, 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. The GS-5220-16T4S2X allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. It consists of a maximum of 12 trunk groups with 10 ports for each group, and supports connection fail-over as well.
The GS-5220-16T4S2X offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 access control list (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict 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. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy.
Enhanced Security and Traffic Control
The GS-5220 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-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
User-friendly Secure Management
For efficient management, the GS-5220 managed switch series is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the GS-5220-16T4S2X offers an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The GS-5220 series supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP v1 or v2 protocol. To reduce product learning time, the GS-5220-16T4S2X offers Cisco-like commands via Telnet or console port so the customer doesnt need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the GS-5220 series offers the remotely secure management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMP v3 connection where the packet content can be encrypted at each session.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The GS-5220-16T4S2X support SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrators to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP and SFP+ transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
