Multiple SFP Fiber Port Switch for All Long-Reach Network Customers
PLANET MGSW-24160F is ideal for all long-reach network customers, such as enterprises, telecoms, campuses and service providers as it comes with advanced management functions, and 16 100/1000Mbps dual speed SFP Fiber ports and 8 10/100/1000Mbps TP ports with a rugged case. It is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput of as high as 48 Gbps in the temperature range from 0 to 60 degrees C without any packet loss and CRC error. Thus, it is certainly a must for those who want to further upgrade their existing network infrastructures to a level where bandwidth demands can be met. Furthermore, it adopts “Front Access” design for easy wiring and maintenance of the MGSW-24160F when placed in the cabinet.
Flexibility and Extension Solution
The 16 mini-GBIC slots built in the MGSW-24160F support dual speed as it features 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. The administrator can flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver when considering transmission distance and speed. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2km for multi-mode fiber, and up to 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 kilometers for single-mode fiber or WDM fiber. They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
AC and DC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation
The MGSW-24160F is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one additional 36~60V DC power supply unit for redundant power supply installation. A redundant power system is also provided to enhance the reliability with either AC or DC power supply unit. The redundant power system is specifically designed to handle the demands of high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity. Furthermore, with the 36~60V DC power supply implemented, the MGSW-24160F can be applied as the telecom level device.
Effective Alarm Alert for Better Protection
The MGSW-24160F 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 to find where the problem is. It will help to save time and human resource.
Digital Input and Digital Output for External Alarm
The MGSW-24160F helps the network administrators efficiently manage the unexpected network situations by providing Digital Input and Digital Output for external alarm device on the front panel. The Digital Input can be used to detect and log the status of the external devices such as door intrusion detector. The Digital Output could be used to send alarm whenever the MGSW-24160F has port link-down or power failure.
IPv6 / IPv4 Dual Stack
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the MGSW-24160F helps data centers, campuses, telecoms, and more to experience the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as its network facilities need not to be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.
Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management
The MGSW-24160F switch not only provides ultra high transmission performance, and excellent layer 2 and layer 4 technologies, but also layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to crossover different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secured, flexibly-managed and simple networking application.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The MGSW-24160F can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD Snooping. Via the link aggregation of supporting ports, the MGSW-24160F allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple fiber ports and supports fail-over as well.
Optimized Design for Metropolitan Area Network
By means of improving the technology of Optical Fiber Ethernet with high-flexible, high-extendable and easy-installation features, the MGSW-24160F offers up to 1Gbps data exchange speed via Optical Fiber interface and the transmission distance extends to 120km. The MGSW-24160F is the ideal solution for service providers such as ISP and telecom to build Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) based on the fiber technology to the WAN Internet Service.
Excellent Solution to Core / Department Switch
The MGSW-24160F is an excellent choice of core layer switch for a Gigabit network. With 24 Gigabit ports, the MGSW-24160F is able to connect up to 24 edge switches in the Ethernet environment. Moreover, it also provides 48 Gigabit per second switch fabric and high bandwidth for backbone connection.
Enhanced Protection via Digital Input and Digital Output
The MGSW-24160F features digital input and digital output functions that greatly help the administrator efficiently react to the emergency events. The digital input can be set up to indicate urgent events and send the messages or alarm to the network system once an unusual event is detected by an external device such as door or window open detector. The digital output function can define the immediate response such as port failure or power failure to the related urgent events.
Intelligent SFP Diagnosis Mechanism
The MGSW-24160F 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.
