PoE Switch with Dual Power Supply
Powerful 802.3bt PoE++ Managed Switch with Extremely Large Power Capability
PLANET GS-6322-24P4X Fully-managed 802.3bt PoE++ Switch with dual modular power supply expandability promotes power management efficiency and flexibility in large-scale networks, such as enterprises, hotels, shopping malls, government buildings, and other public areas. It supports rich PoE operation modes including 24 90-watt 802.3bt type-4 PoE++ ports, 95-watt PoH (Power over HD-BASE-T) mode and 4-pair force mode to solve the incompatibility of non-standard 4-pair PoE PDs in the field. With a total power budget of up to 2,280 watts for different kinds of heavy PoE applications, the GS-6322-24P4X provides a quick, safe and cost-effective 802.3bt PoE network solution for small businesses and enterprises.
Extractive Power Supply Design to Increase Flexibility
The GS-6322-24P4X is designed with two extractive power module slots to support Redundant Power Supply (RPS) mode or Extended Power Supply (EPS) mode via software setting to handle the demands of power redundancy or additional power for PoE++ ports as needed.
- RPS (1+1) mode: Where critical services are supported by PoE application, the secondary PSU is needed to provide backup power in the event of a power outage. When two PSUs are installed, the power budget is the same as that of one PSU.
- EPS (2+0) mode: Where more PoE budget is required to support complete application, the secondary PSU can provide additional PoE power. The two PSUs combined are able to provide a maximum of total PoE power.
The GS-6322-24P4X can flexibly use one or dual power supply according to their application. Its flexible redundant and extended power system is specifically designed for high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity.
90~95-watt 802.3bt PoE++ and Advanced PoE Power Output Mode Management
As the GS-6322-24P4X adopts the IEEE 802.bt PoE++ standard and PoH technology, it is capable to source up to 95 watts of power by using all the four pairs of standard Cat5e/6 Ethernet cabling to deliver power and full-speed data to each remote PoE compliant powered device (PD). To meet the demand of various powered devices consuming stable PoE power, the GS-6322-24P4X PoE++ Switch provides five different PoE power output modes for selection.
- 95W UPOE/PoH
- 90W 802.3bt PoE++
- 60W Force
- 36W End-span PoE
- 36W Mid-span PoE
10GBASE-T and 10GBASE-X SFP Dual Media Interfaces
The GS-6322-24P4X features built-in hardware-based L2 and L3 switching engine along with 24 10/100/1000BASE-T ports, 2 10GBASE-T RJ45 ports and 2 additional 10GBASE-X SFP+ ports. With two built-in 10GBASE-T copper interfaces with 5-speed (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100) auto-negotiation, the GS-6322-24P4X provides 10Gbps data transmission with the existing Cat6A/Cat7 UTP cabling, meaning the speed can be increased without costs. The additional two 10GBASE-X SFP+ interfaces with 3 speeds (10G/2.5G/1G) are provided for a long-distance transmission of up to 120km.
Layer 3 Routing Support
The GS-6322-24P4X enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN static routing manually, and the IPv4 OSPFv2 (Open Shortest Path First) settings automatically. The OSPF is an interior dynamic routing protocol for autonomous system based on link state. The protocol creates a database for link state by exchanging link states among Layer 3 switches, and then uses the Shortest Path First algorithm to generate a route table based on that database.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The GS-6322-24P4X supports redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), and redundant power input system into customer’s industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time of data link can be as fast as 10ms.
Convenient and Smart ONVIF Devices with Detection Feature
The GS-6322-24P4X supports an awesome feature — ONVIF Support — which is specifically designed for co-operating with Video IP Surveillances. From its GUI, clients just need one click to search and show all of the ONVIF devices via network application. In addition, clients can upload floor images to a switch and it allows you to deploy any surveillance devices for easier inspection and planning. Moreover, clients can get real-time surveillance’s information and online/offline status, and also allows PoE reboot control from GUI.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
Being the managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the GS-6322-24P4X features the following special PoE management functions:
- PD alive check
- Scheduled power recycling
- PoE schedule
- PoE usage monitoring
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The GS-6322-24P4X can be configured to monitor connected PD (powered device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the GS-6322-24P4X will resume the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PD’s power source and reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The GS-6322-24P4X allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specified time each week. Therefore, they will reduce the chance of IP camera or AP crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PoE Schedule for Energy Savings
Under the trend of energy savings worldwide and contributing to environmental protection, the GS-6322-24P4X can effectively control the power supply besides their capability of giving high watts power. The “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and money. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The GS-6322-24P4X can be programmed for advanced Layer 2 switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control, IGMP snooping and MLD snooping. Via the aggregation of supporting ports, the GS-6322-24P4X can operate at high speed as it comes with multiple ports and supports fail-over as well.
Powerful Network Security
The GS-6322-24P4X offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 access control list (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict to 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.
Advanced IP Network Protection
The GS-6322-24P4X 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.
For efficient management, the GS-6322-24P4X is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
- With the built-in Web-based management interface, it offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility.
- For text-based management, it can be accessed via Telnet and the console port.
- For standard-based monitor and management software, it offers SNMPv3 connection which encrypts the packet content at each session for secure remote management.
Intelligent SFP/SFP+ Diagnosis Mechanism
The GS-6322-24P4X supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator 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.
