Layer 3 Routing Support
The TSN-6325-8T4S4X enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN static routing manually, the RIP (Routing Information Protocol) or OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) settings automatically.
The RIP can employ the hop count as a routing metric and prevent routing loops by implementing a limit on the number of hops allowed in a path from the source to a destination.
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.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The TSN-6325-8T4S4X 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 TSN-6325-8T4S4X allows the operation of a high-speed trunk group that comes with multiple ports and supports fail-over as well.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
