Network with Cybersecurity Helps Minimize Security Risks
The IGS-20040MT comes with enhanced cybersecurity to fend off cyberthreats and cyberattacks. It supports SSHv2, TLS and SSL 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 IGS-20040MT protects the switch management and enhances the security of the mission-critical network without any extra deployment cost and effort.
Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Surveillance System
The IGS-20040MT 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 certain simple Ring network, the recovery time of data link can be as fast as 10ms.
Modbus TCP Provides Flexible Network Connectivity for Factory Automation
With the supported Modbus TCP/IP protocol, the IGS-20040MT 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, communication status, and DI and DO status, thus easily achieving enhanced monitoring and maintenance of the entire factory.
1588 Time Protocol for Industrial Computing Networks
The IGS-20040MT is ideal for telecom and Carrier Ethernet applications, supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet.
SMTP/SNMP Trap Event Alert
The IGS-20040MT provides SMTP/SNMP 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.
Effective Alarm Alert for Better Protection
The IGS-20040MT supports a Fault Alarm feature which can alert the users when there is something wrong with the switches. With this ideal feature, the users would not have to waste time finding where the problem is. It will help to save time and human resource.
Digital Input and Digital Output for External Alarm
The IGS-20040MT supports Digital Input and Digital Output on its upper panel. The external alarm enables users to use Digital Input to detect external device’s status (such as door intrusion detector), and send event alarm to the administrators. The Digital Output could be used to alarm the administrators if the IGS-20040MT port is link-down, link-up or power-dead.
Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 Software VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the IGS-20040MT 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.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The IGS-20040MT 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 IGS-20040MT provides 802.1Q tagged VLAN, and the VLAN groups allowed will be maximally up to 255. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the IGS-20040MT allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. It enables a maximum of up to 10 trunk groups with 8 ports per trunk group, and supports fail-over as well.
For efficient management, the IGS-20040MT is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
- With the built-in Web-based management interface, the IGS-20040MT 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.
Powerful Security from Layer 2 to Layer 4
The IGS-20040MT 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 IGS-20040MT 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 four mini-GBIC slots built in the IGS-20040MT support dual 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 to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and up to above 10/20/40/60/80/120 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 IGS-20040MT 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.
Environmentally Hardened Design
With IP30 aluminum industrial case protection, the IGS-20040MT provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. It also possesses an integrated power supply source with wide range of voltages (9 to 48V DC or 24V AC) for worldwide high availability applications requiring dual or backup power inputs. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the IGS-20040MT can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
