Smart Management PoE Features
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S features the following smart PoE management features::
- PD alive check
- Scheduled power recycling
- PoE schedule
- PoE usage monitoring
Intelligent Power Activation
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S can be configured to monitor connected PD (Powered Device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S 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 PDs power source and reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Rebooting
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specific time each week. This reduces the chances of IP camera or AP from crashing due to buffer overflow.
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S offers many energy-efficient PoE management features. 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 that helps SMBs or enterprises save power and resources. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
PoE Usage Monitoring and Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S enables administrators to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real time. This improves the efficiency of the IGS-4215-4P4T2S helping users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage.
Environmentally Hardened Design
With its IP30 aluminum industrial case, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets without air conditioner. The units range from -40 to 75°C and can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
With the ability to support IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S helps system integrators step into the IPv6 era without the need to replace or overhaul an existing network.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN, Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Loop and BPDU Guard, IGMP Snooping, and MLD Snooping. Via the link aggregation, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as a 16Gbps fat pipe, and supports fail-over as well. Also, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is the Layer 2 protocol included to help discover basic information about neighboring devices on the local broadcast domain.
Powerful Traffic Management Features
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S is features robust QoS features and powerful traffic management that enhance services to business-class data, voice, and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast/multicast/unicast storm control, per port bandwidth control, 802.1p/CoS/IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. It guarantees the best performance in VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.
User-Friendly and Secure Management
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S is equipped with web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in web-based management interface, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard SNMP, the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet. Moreover, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S offers secure remote management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Advanced Network Security
PLANET's IGS-4215-4P4T2S offers a comprehensive IPv4/IPv6 Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1X port-based user and device authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS to ensure the port level security and block illegal users. With the protected port function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to guarantee user privacy. Furthermore, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S also provides DHCP snooping, IP source guard and dynamic ARP inspection functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discarded ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Long Distance Solution
With its two built-in mini-GBIC slots, the IGS-4215-4P4T2S offers SFP auto-detection and dual speed as it features 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceivers to uplink to backbone switch. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and up to 10/20/30/40/50/60/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The IGS-4215-4P4T2S supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function helping network administrator monitor real-time parameters of the SFP, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
