XGS3-42000R 4-Slot Layer 3 IPv6/IPv4 Routing Chassis Switch

XGS3-42000R 4-Slot Layer 3 IPv6/IPv4 Routing Chassis Switch


The XGS3-42000R Core-Layer Routing Switch from Planet Technology is the perfect fit for large network applications.



The XGS3-42000R delivers Wire-Speed Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in a highly flexible and resilient modular platform. With a  high switching capacity, the XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch supports wire-speed L2/L3 forwarding and high routing performance for IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. The single chassis is a core layer switch measuring 6 U that supports 10-Gigabit Ethernet and full-duplex technology.  The High-Density Chassis Ethernet Switch offers 4 module slots and redundant power supply. The XGS3-42000R is ideal for the core layer of campuses, enterprise networks and the aggregation layer of IP metropolitan networks.The scalable and flexible modular architecture supports up to 376Gps forwarding performance in a single system.

Maximum Configuration:

• 168-Port 10/100/1000Base-T Copper • 156-Port 1000Base-SX/LX SFP Fiber Slots • 13-Port 10G XFP Fiber Slots

Rich Multi-Layer and Multicast Networking Protocols

The XGS3-42000R supports various Layer 2 and management networking protocols to meet the requirements of complex network constructions. It is compatible with 802.1d/w/s, 802.1Q, 802.1p, 802.3ad, 802.3x, GVRP, DHCP, SNTP, etc.The Chassis Switch also supports IPv6 / IPv4 routing protocols including Layer 3 IP Static Routing, RIPv1/v2, OSPF, and VRRP protocols. Built in with abundant multicast features, the XGS3-42000R supports rich L2 multicast features such as IGMPv1/v2/v3, snooping and L3 multicast protocols -- DVMRP, PIM-DM, PIM-SM and PIM-SSM. Offering the rich application experience, the product supports multicast VLAN registration, multicast receive control and illegal multicast source detect functions. The XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch solution performs a cost-effective solution for today with the ability to expand as network demands grow.

Enhanced Security

The XGS3-42000R offers comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) to provide maximum security. The unit can deny packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP / UDP ports or defined typical network applications. It’s 802.1x port-based and MAC-based user and device authentication adds another layer of security. VLAN prevents communication between edge ports to ensure user privacy. The XGS3-42000R also provides DHCP SnoopingIP Source Guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection functions to prevent IP snooping attacks and discards ARP packets with invalid MAC address.

Efficient and Secure Management

The XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch is equipped with console, WEB and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the XGS3-42000R offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The XGS3-42000R supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the XGS3-42000R can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the XGS3-42000R offers secure remote management by supporting SSHSSL and SNMPv3 connection which encrypt the packet content at each session.
