Innovative Wall-mount Installation
The WGS-4215-8HP2S 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. It adopts the user-friendly “Front Access” and touch color screen design, making the installing, cable wiring, LED monitoring and maintenance of the WGS-4215-8HP2S placed in an enclosure very convenient for technicians. The WGS-4215-8HP2S can be installed by fixed wall mounting, thereby making its usability more flexible.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The WGS-4215-8HP2S 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 and Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP) into customer’s industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
As it is the managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the WGS-4215-8HP2S 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-4215-8HP2S can be configured to monitor connected PD status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the WGS-4215-8HP2S 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-4215-8HP2S 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 Saving
Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environmental protection, the WGS-4215-8HP2S 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.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGS-4215-8HP2S 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-4215-8HP2S provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, and the VLAN groups allowed will be maximally up to 256. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the WGS-4215-8HP2S 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-4215-8HP2S 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-4215-8HP2S protects the switch management and enhances the security of the mission-critical network without any extra deployment cost and effort.
For efficient management, the WGS-4215-8HP2S is equipped with Command line, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
With the built-in Web-based management interface, the WGS-4215-8HP2S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility.
For text-based management, it can be accessed via Telnet and SSHv2 protocol.
For standard-based monitor and management software, it offers SNMPv3 connection which encrypts the packet content at each session for secure remote management.
Powerful Security from Layer 2 to Layer 4
The WGS-4215-8HP2S 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 and device authentication.
Advanced IP Network Protection
The WGS-4215-8HP2S 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.
Flexibility and Extension Solution
The additional two SFP slots built in the WGS-4215-8HP2S support multi-speed, 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX 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-4215-8HP2S 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.
