8-Port PoE Switch
New Generation of Multi-Gigabit PoE+ Managed Switch with Full PoE Power Budget
PLANET’s MGS-5220-8P2X Layer 2+ managed multi-gigabit switch provides 2.5Gbps data rate and PoE over UTP cables, which is designed for the demand of high-bandwidth required network equipment, such as 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless AP. Offering a perfect hardware configuration with 8 100/1000/2500BASE-T ports featuring 30-watt 802.3at PoE+, and 2 extra 1/10 Gigabit BASE-X SFP+ fiber slots, the MGS-5220-8P2X breaks the bandwidth limitation of connecting a wireless network with a wired network. The switch features hardware-based Layer 3 static routing capability, Layer 2 and Layer 4 switching engine, and PLANET Intelligent PoE functions. It also provides a highly-secure, environment-friendly network management and accelerates the deployment of wireless network infrastructure for enterprises and smart cities.
2.5Gbps Capability for Diversified Bandwidth Applications
With the terminal access rates of 802.11ac wireless APs reaching as high as 1.2Gbps to 2.6Gbps, Gigabit ports has been unable to satisfy the demand. Supporting both 1Gbps and 2.5Gbps capability and 802.3af/at PoE output, the MGS-5220-8P2X can deliver not only data to 802.11ac wireless APs, but also power other powered devices.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The cybersecurity features that virtually need no effort and cost to have include the protection of the switch management and the enhanced security of the mission-critical network. Both SSH and SSL protocols are utilized to provide strong protection against advanced threats. The network administrator can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Surveillance Management
As a managed PoE Switch for surveillance network, the MGS-5220-8P2X features the following intelligent PoE management functions:
- PD Alive Check
- PoE Schedule
- Scheduled Power Recycling
- SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The MGS-5220-8P2X can be configured to monitor a connected PD (powered device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working with no response, the MGS-5220-8P2X will resume the PoE port power and power back up the PD. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PDs power source, thus reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The MGS-5220-8P2X allows each of the connected PDs to reboot at a specified time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of a PD crash resulting from buffer overflow.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
Though most NVR or camera management software offers SMTP email alert functions, the MGS-5220-8P2X further provides event alert function to help to diagnose the abnormal device owing to whether or not there is a break of the network connection, loss of PoE power or the rebooting response by the PD Alive Check process.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Besides being used for IP surveillance, the MGS-5220-8P2X is able to build any PoE network including VoIP and wireless LAN. The environmentally friendly MGS-5220-8P2X can effectively control the power supply while still providing high watts of power. The PoE schedule function helps you enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals which helps SMBs and enterprises save energy and budget.
Solution for IPv6 Networking
Supporting the IPv6/IPv4 protocol, the MGS-5220-8P2X is the best choice for IP surveillance, VoIP and wireless service providers to connect with the IPv6 network. It also helps SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment and without having to replace the network facilities even though ISPs establish the IPv6 FTTx edge network.
IPv4 and IPv6 VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customers stay on top of their business, the MGS-5220-8P2X not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent layer 2 technologies, but also offers IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature. This allows crossover of different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management and simpler networking application.
Robust Layer2 Features
The MGS-5220-8P2X 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 MGS-5220-8P2X allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. Supporting 6 trunk groups, it enables a maximum of up to 8 ports per trunk and supports connection fail-over as well.
The MGS-5220-8P2X offers 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 MGS-5220-8P2X 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 build highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
User-friendly Secure Management
For efficient management, the MGS-5220-8P2X is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, theMGS-5220-8P2X offers an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The MGS-5220-8P2X supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP v1 and v2 protocols. For reducing product learning time, the MGS-5220-8P2X offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the MGS-5220-8P2X offers remote secure management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connection which can encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexible and Extendable Solution
The 2 mini-GBIC SFP+ slots built in the MGS-5220-8P2X support dual speed as it features 1G/10G BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. Now the administrator can flexibly 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 the enterprise data centers and distributions.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The MGS-5220-8P2X supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
