802.3bt PoE++ – 90~95-watt Power over 4-pair UTP Solution
As the WGS-6325-8UP2X adopts the IEEE 802.bt PoE++ standard, it is capable to source up to 95 watts of power by using all the four pairs of standard Cat5e/6 Ethernet cabling to deliver power and full-speed data to each remote PoE compliant powered device (PD). It possesses triple amount of power capability than the conventional 802.3at PoE+ and is an ideal solution to satisfy the growing demand for higher power consuming network PDs, such as:
- PoE PTZ speed dome cameras
- Any network device that needs higher PoE power to work normally
- Thin clients
- AIO (all-in-one) touch PCs, point of sale (POS) and information kiosks
- Remote digital signage displays
- PoE lightings
Innovative Wall-mount Installation
The WGS-6325-8UP2X is specially designed to be installed in a narrow environment, such as wall enclosure or electric box. The compact, flat and wall-mounted design fits easily in any space-limited location. The WGS-6325-8UP2X can be installed by fixed wall mounting, thereby making its usability more flexible.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The WGS-6325-8UP2X 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 dual 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.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
As it is the managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the WGS-6325-8UP2X features the following special PoE management functions:
- PD alive check
- Scheduled power recycling
- PoE schedule
- PoE usage monitoring
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The WGS-6325-8UP2X can be configured to monitor connected PD status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the WGS-6325-8UP2X will resume the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PD’s power source and reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The WGS-6325-8UP2X 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 Savings
Under the trend of energy savings worldwide and contributing to environmental protection, the WGS-6325-8UP2X can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and budget. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
Convenient and Smart ONVIF Devices with Detection Feature
PLANET has newly developed an awesome feature — ONVIF Support — which is specifically designed for co-operating with video IP surveillances. From the WGS-6325-8UP2X’s GUI, you just need one click to search and show all of the ONVIF devices via network application. In addition, you can upload floor images to the switch and can remotely monitor or inspect an assembly line. Moreover, you can get real-time surveillance information and online/offline status; the PoE reboot can be controlled from the GUI.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
The WGS-6325-8UP2X provides event alert 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.
Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 Software VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the WGS-6325-8UP2X not only provides ultra 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.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGS-6325-8UP2X can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP snooping. The WGS-6325-8UP2X provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, and the VLAN groups allowed will be maximally up to 2K. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the WGS-6325-8UP2X allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. It enables a maximum of up to 2 trunk groups with 2 ports per trunk group, and supports fail-over as well.
Network with Cybersecurity Helps Minimize Security Risks
The WGS-6325-8UP2X comes with enhanced cybersecurity to fend off cyberthreats and cyberattacks. It supports SSHv2 and TLSv1.2 protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats.

Powerful Security from Layer 2 to Layer 4
The WGS-6325-8UP2X 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-6325-8UP2X 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.
Modbus TCP provides Flexible Network Connectivity for Factory Automation
With the supported Modbus TCP/IP protocol, the WGS-6325-8UP2X 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.
Flexibility and Extension Solution
The additional two SFP slots built in the WGS-6325-8UP2X 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 550 meters (multi-mode fiber) to 20/40/80/120 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 WGS-6325-8UP2X supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
1588 Time Protocol for Industrial Computing Networks
The WGS-6325-8UP2X is ideal for telecom and Carrier Ethernet applications, supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet.
