High-Density / Cost-effective / Telecom class Gigabit solution for Enterprise backbone and Data Center Networking
The PLANET WGSW-48000 is a Layer 2 / Layer 4 full managed Gigabit Switch that provides high density performance and is rack mountable. With 96Gbps switching fabric, the WGSW-48000 can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to an enterprise backbone or high capacity servers. The powerful QoS and Network Security features make WGSW-48000 to perform effective data traffic control for both ISP and Enterprise VoIP, video streaming and multicast applications.
The WGSW-48000 provides 48 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports with 4 shared Gigabit SFP slots. It boasts a high performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 96Gbps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGSW-48000 can be programmed for basic Switch management functions such as Port speed configuration, Port aggregation, VLAN, Spanning Tree protocol, QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP Snooping. The WGSW-48000 provides 802.1Q Tagged VLAN and GVRP protocol. The VLAN groups allowed on the WGSW-48000 will be maximally up to 255. By supporting port aggregation, the WGSW-48000 allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. It enables up to 14 groups of maximum 8-ports for trunking, and supports fail-over as well.
Excellent Traffic Control
PLANET WGSW-48000 is loaded with powerful traffic management and QoS features to enhance services offered by telecoms. The functionality includes QoS features such as wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limiting that are particular useful for multi-tenant unit, multi business unit, Telco, or Network Service Provide applications. It also empowers the enterprises to take full advantages of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance at VoIP and Video conferencing transmission.
For efficient management, the WGSW-48000 Managed Ethernet Switch is equipped with console, WEB and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the PLANET WGSW-48000 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The WGSW-48000 supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, WGSW-48000 can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the WGSW-48000 offers secure remote management by supporting SSL and SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.
PLANET WGSW-48000 offers comprehensive Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. Its protection mechanisms also comprise port-based 802.1x user and device authentication. The port-security is effective in limiting the numbers of clients pass through, so that network administrators can now construct highly secured corporate networks with time and effort considerably less than before.
Flexibility and Extension solution
The four mini-GBIC slots built in the WGSW-48000 are compatible with 1000Base-SX/LX and WDM SFP (Small Factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (Multi-Mode fiber) up to above 10/50/70/120 kilometers (Single-Mode fiber or WDM fiber). It is well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
