The MGSD-10080F supports Digital Input, and Digital Output on the front panel. The external alarm offers technicians the ability to use Digital Input to detect, and log external device status (such as door intrusion detector) for the alarm as Digital Output could be used to alarm if the MGSD-10080F has port link down, link up or power failure.
Environmentally-friendly, Fanless Design for Silent Operation
The MGSD-10080F with a desktop-sized metal housing is designed to operate quietly and effectively as it is fanless and comes with optimal power output capability. Thus, the MGSD-10080F can be deployed in any environment without affecting its performance.
Cost-effective IPv6 Managed Gigabit Switch Solution for Metro Ethernet
To fulfill the demand for ISP to build the IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) network infrastructure speedily, the MGSD-10080F supports both IPv4 and IPv6 management functions. It can work with original IPv4 network structure and also support the new IPv6 network structure. With easy and friendly management interfaces and plenty of management functions included, the MGSD-10080F Metro Ethernet Switch is the best choice for ISP and service providers to build the IPv6 FTTx edge service and for Industries to connect with IPv6 network.
Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 Software VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the MGSD-10080F not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent Layer 2 technologies, but also IPv4/IPv6 software VLAN routing feature which allows to crossover different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management and simpler networking application.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The MGSD-10080F can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree protocol (MSTP), loop and BPDU guard, IGMP snooping, and MLD snooping. Via the link aggregation, the MGSD-10080F allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports, 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 MGSD-10080F 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 storm control, per port bandwidth control, IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. It guarantees the best performance for VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.
The MGSD-10080F 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 ports or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1x Port-based user authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy. The network administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Friendly and Secure Management
For efficient management, the MGSD-10080F is equipped with Command line, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
- With the built-in Web-based management interface, the MGSD-10080F offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility.

- By supporting the standard SNMP protocol, the switch can be managed via any SNMP-based management software.
Moreover, the MGSD-10080F offers secure remote management by supporting SSHv2, TLSv1.2 and SNMPv3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexibility and Extension Solution
The mini-GBIC slots built in the MGSD-10080F support multi-speed, 100BASE-FX, 1000BASE-SX/LX and 2500BASE-X SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules, meaning the administrator now 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 300 meters to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and up to above 10/20/40/60/80/120 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 MGSD-10080F supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that can easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP for network administrator, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
