Easily-deployed and Expanded Network
PLANET WGS-5225-8MT managed switch offers eight 10/100/1000BASE-T M12 ports and is housed in an IP40-rated enclosure with redundant 9-48 VDC power inputs. Designed to be deployed in the industrial environments, the WGS-5225-8MT offers wire-speed throughput, shock and vibration proofing, and a wide -40° to 75°C operating temperature range.
The WGS-5225-8MT offers IPv6/IPv4 dual stack management, intelligent Layer 2 management functions, and user-friendly interface. The WGS-5225-8MT is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in railway and other industrial applications subject to shock, vibration and other extreme conditions without affecting its performance. Besides, the WGS-5225-8MT with bypass relay ports ensure non-stop data flow even in the event of a power outage.
Bypass Relay Prevents Power Loss
Bypass relay is set to bypass the failed switch to the next normal switch to prevent the network from power loss. The WGS-5225-8MT supports the bypass relay function on the one pair of Gigabit ports. When the switch is operating normally, the Gigabit ports operate in the same way as the other ports, processing and forwarding Ethernet packets. Bypass relay ports allow network traffic to continue to flow in the event of a power outage. It also can go back to the normal mode when power is back and the switch is completely booting up to avoid another network loss.
Vibrationproof and Dustproof M12 Ethernet Connector
The WGS-5225-8MT is equipped with 8-port 10/100/1000BASE-T, auto-negotiation, vibration-proof, waterproof and dustproof M12 connector. The M12 connector provides tight and strong connection, and guarantees stable Ethernet operating performance in a high vibration and shock environment. It comes with the industrial protection rating of IP67 capable of withstanding humidity, dirt, dust, shock, vibrations, heat and cold.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The WGS-5225-8MT supports redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), and redundant power input system into customer’s industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time of data link can be as fast as 10ms.
Network with Cybersecurity Helps Minimize Security Risks
The WGS-5225-8MT comes with enhanced cybersecurity to fend off cyberthreats and cyberattacks. It supports SSHv2 and TLSv1.2 protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats. Served as a key point to transmit data to customer’s critical equipment in a business network, the cybersecurity feature of the WGS-5225-8MT protects the switch management and enhances the security of the mission-critical network without any extra deployment cost and effort.
Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 Software VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the WGS-5225-8MT not only provides high transmission performance and excellent Layer 2 technologies, but also IPv4/IPv6 software VLAN routing feature which allows to cross over different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management and simpler networking application.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the WGS-5225-8MT 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 edge network is set up.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGS-5225-8MT 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 WGS-5225-8MT allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as a 4Gbps 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 WGS-5225-8MT 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.
Powerful Security from Layer 2 to Layer 4
The WGS-5225-8MT 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 and MAC-based user and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy.
Advanced IP Network Protection
The WGS-5225-8MT 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.
For efficient management, the WGS-5225-8MT is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
- With the built-in Web-based management interface, the WGS-5225-8MT offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility.
- For text-based management, it can be accessed via Telnet and the console port.
- For standard-based monitor and management software, it offers SNMPv3 connection which encrypts the packet content at each session for secure remote management.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
The WGS-5225-8MT provides event alert function through SMTP email and SNMP trap function to help to diagnose the abnormal device owing to whether or not there is a break of the network connection, or the rebooting response.
Modbus TCP provides Flexible Network Connectivity for Factory Automation
With the supported Modbus TCP/IP protocol, the WGS-5225-8MT can easily integrate with SCADA systems, HMI systems and other data acquisition systems in factory floors. It enables administrators to remotely monitor the industrial Ethernet switch’s operating information, port information and communication status, thus easily achieving enhanced monitoring and maintenance of the entire factory.
1588 Time Protocol for Industrial Computing Networks
The WGS-5225-8MT is ideal for telecom and Carrier Ethernet applications, supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet.
Dual Power Input for High Availability Network System
The WGS-5225-8MT features a strong dual power input system (Dual 9V~48V DC) incorporated into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. For example, when DC Power 1 fails to work, the hardware failover function will be activated automatically to keep powering the WGS-5225-8MT via DC Power 2 alternatively without any loss of operation.
