Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
As the industrial managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S features the following special PoE management functions:
PD alive check
PoE usage monitoring
Scheduled power recycling
Intelligent Powered Device Alive-Check
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S can be configured to monitor a connected PD's (powered devices) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S will resume the PoE port power and power back up the PD. It will greatly enhance the network reliability and reduce the administrator's management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specific time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of IP camera or AP crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S is environmentally friendly by effectively controlling the power supply while still providing high watts of power. The PoE schedule function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals. This powerful function helps SMBs or enterprises save on power and budget. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage Monitoring
Via the power usage chart in the web management interface, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S enables the administrator to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real time. Thus, it greatly enhances the management efficiency of the facilities. The IGS-4215-8P2T2S helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily via its advanced LED indication. Called PoE Power Usage, the front panel of the IGS-4215-8P2T2S has four orange LEDs indicating the different PoE power usages; 60W, 120W, 180W and 240W.
Environmentally Hardened Design
With the IP30 aluminum industrial case, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S 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. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75°C, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S provides contact discharge of ±6KV DC and air discharge of ±8KV DC for Ethernet ESD protection. It also supports ±4KV surge immunity to improve product stability and protects users networks from devastating ESD attacks, making sure the flow of operation does not fluctuate.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S helps the SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as its network facilities need not be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation,Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), 802.1Q VLAN, Q-in-Q VLAN, loop and BPDU guard, IGMP snooping, and MLD snooping. Via the link aggregation, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as an 8Gbps 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.
Efficient Traffic Control
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S is loaded with robust QoS features and powerful traffic management to 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
For efficient management, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S is equipped with console, Web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the IGS-4215-8P2T2S can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S can be accessed via Telnet and the local console port. Moreover, the IGS-4215-8P2T2S offers secure remote management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
PLANET's IGS-4215-8P2T2S offers comprehensive IPv4/IPv6 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 ports or defined typical network applications. 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, Port Security function allows limiting the number of network devices on a given port.
Advanced Network Security
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S 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 administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Flexibility and Long-distance Extension Solution
The IGS-4215-8P2T2S provides 2 extra Gigabit TP interfaces supporting 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ45 copper to connect with surveillance network devices such as NVR, Video Streaming Server or NAS to facilitate surveillance management. Or through the two dual-speed fiber SFP slots, it can also connect with the 100BASE-FX /1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceiver to uplink to backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and 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.
