Perfect Managed PoE+ Switch with L3/L2 Switching and Security
PLANET GS-6320-8P2X Layer 3 Managed Gigabit Switch supports both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols and Layer 3 OSPFv2 dynamic routing and static routing, and provides 8 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring 802.3at PoE+ and 2 extra 1/2.5/10 Gigabit BASE-X SFP+ fiber slots. Each of the eight Gigabit ports provides 36 watts of power, with a total power budget of up to 120 watts for the different types of PoE applications being employed. It provides a quick, safe and cost-effective Power over Ethernet network solution to IP security surveillance for small businesses and enterprises.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Critical Network Applications
The GS-6320-8P2X 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 (802.1w RSTP) into customer’s network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time could be less than 10ms to quickly bring the network back to normal operation.
Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks
The cybersecurity feature included to protect the switch management in a mission-critical network virtually needs no effort and cost to install. Both SSHv2 and TLSv1.2 protocols are utilized to provide strong protection against advanced threats. The network administrator can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Flexible and Extendable 10Gb Ethernet Solution
10G Ethernet is a big leap in the evolution of Ethernet. Each of the 10G SFP+ slots in the GS-6320-8P2X supports triple speed and 10GBASE-SR/LR or 2500BASE-X and 1000BASE-SX/LX. With its 2-port,10G Ethernet link capability, the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently. The GS-6320-8P2X provides broad bandwidth and powerful processing capacity.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Surveillance Management
As a managed PoE Switch for surveillance network, the GS-6320-8P2X features the following intelligent PoE management functions:
- PD Alive Check
- Scheduled Power Recycling
- SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
- PoE Schedule
- PoE Usage Monitoring
- PoE Extension
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The GS-6320-8P2X can be configured to monitor a connected PD status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and it is without response, the GS-6320-8P2X 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, thus reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The GS-6320-8P2X allows each of the connected PDs to reboot at a specified time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of PD crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Besides being used for IP surveillance, the GS-6320-8P2X is certainly applicable to build any PoE network including VoIP and wireless LAN. Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to the environmental protection on the Earth, the GS-6320-8P2X 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 and enterprises save energy and budget.
PoE Power and Ethernet Data Transmission Distance Extension
In the “Extend” operation mode, the GS-6320-8P2X operates on a per-port basis at 10Mbps duplex operation but can support 22-watt PoE power output over a distance of up to 200 meters overcoming the 100m limit on Ethernet UTP cable. With this brand-new feature, the GS-6320-8P2X provides an additional solution for 802.3at/af PoE distance extension, thus saving the cost of Ethernet cable installation.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
Though most NVR or camera management software offers SMTP email alert function, the GS-6320-8P2X further provides event alert function to help to diagnose the abnormal device owing to whether or not there is a break of the network connection, loss of PoE power or the rebooting response by the PD Alive Check process.
Convenient and Smart ONVIF Devices with Detection Feature
PLANET has newly developed an awesome feature — ONVIF Support — which is specifically designed for cooperating with video IP surveillances. From the GS-6320-8P2X 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 remotely monitor what is going on in the production line. Moreover, you can get real-time surveillance’s information and online/offline status, and can have PoE reboot control from GUI.
Solution for IPv6 Networking
With the support for IPv6/IPv4 protocol, and easy and friendly management interfaces, the GS-6320-8P2X is the best choice for IP surveillance, VoIP and wireless service providers to connect with the IPv6 network. It also helps SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment and without having to replace the network facilities even though ISPs establish the IPv6 FTTx edge network.
Layer 3 Routing Support
The GS-6320-8P2X 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 Layer2 Features
The GS-6320-8P2X can be programmed for advanced switch management function, such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2/4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD snooping. The GS-6320-8P2X allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. Supporting 5 trunk groups, it enables a maximum of up to 2 ports per trunk and supports connection fail-over as well.
The GS-6320-8P2X 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 port number 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.
Enhanced Security and Traffic Control
The GS-6320-8P2X 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 administrator can now build highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
For efficient management, the GS-6320-8P2X is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
- With the built-in Web-based management interface, it 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.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The GS-6320-8P2X supports SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
