Easily-deployed and Expanded Network
Designed to be installed in a wall enclosure or simply mounted on a wall in any convenient location, PLANET WGS-4215-8P2S, an innovative, Industrial 8-port 10/100/1000T 802.3at PoE + 2-port 100/1000X SFP Wall-mounted Managed Switch, offers IPv6/IPv4 dual stack management, intelligent Layer 2 management functions, and user-friendly interface. The WGS-4215-8P2S is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance. With a total power budget of up to 200 watts for different kinds of PoE applications and featuring ultra networking speed and operating temperature ranging from -40 to 75 degrees C in a compact but rugged IP30 metal housing, the WGS-4215-8P2S is an ideal solution to meeting the demand for the following network applications:
■ Building/Home automation network
■ Internet of things (IoT)
■ IP surveillance
■ Wireless LAN
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
As it is the managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the WGS-4215-8P2S 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-4215-8P2S can be configured to monitor connected PD (Powered Device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the WGS-4215-8P2S 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-4215-8P2S 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-4215-8P2S 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.
Innovative Wall-mount Installation
The WGS-4215-8P2S is specially designed to be installed in a narrow environment, such as wall enclosure or electric weak box. The compact, flat and wall-mounted design fits easily in any space-limited location. It adopts the user-friendly “Front Access” design, making the installing, cable wiring, LED monitoring and maintenance of the WGS-4215-8P2S placed in an enclosure very convenient for technicians. The WGS-4215-8P2S can be installed by fixed wall mounting, magnetic wall mounting or DIN rail, thereby making its usability more flexible.
Environmentally Hardened Design
With IP30, flat but rugged metal housing protection, the WGS-4215-8P2S 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 without air conditioner. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the WGS-4215-8P2S can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management
Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the WGS-4215-8P2S helps the SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as its network facilities need not be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGS-4215-8P2S can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN, Q-in-Q VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Loop and BPDU Guard, IGMP Snooping, and MLD Snooping. Via the link aggregation, the WGS-4215-8P2S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as a 16Gbps fat pipe, and supports fail-over as well. Also, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is the Layer 2 protocol included to help discover basic information about neighboring devices on the local broadcast domain.
Security Building Automation Switch
Suitable for buildings where security is strictly to be enforced, the WGS-4215-8P2S Industrial Wall-mount Managed Switch offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL). The switch can restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP ports or defined typical network applications. With the WGS-4215-8P2S, a tightly-controlled network can be easily had in no time.
Perfect Integration Solution for IP PoE Camera and NVR System
The WGS-4215-8P2S provides 8 10/100/1000Mbps 802.3at PoE ports which can offer sufficient PoE power to 8 PoE IP cameras at the same time. In addition, with the 2 100/1000BASE-X SFP interfaces, the WGS-4215-8P2S can connect to a core fiber switch and send video streams to an NVR and monitoring center. Through the high-performance switch architecture, the WGS-4215-8P2S facilitates the recorded video files from the 8 PoE IP cameras to be saved in the NVR systems. Furthermore, the NVR systems can be controlled and monitored both in the local LAN and the remote site via Internet. The WGS-4215-8P2S undoubtedly brings an ideal secure surveillance system at a lower total cost.
Industrial Area Switch for Data Collection and Forwarding
The WGS-4215-8P2S is equipped with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports offering auto MDI/MDIX feature providing 16Gbps non-blocking switch fabric and the 8K MAC address table so that the WGS-4215-8P2S can perform wire-speed packets transfer without the risk of packet loss. The WGS-4215-8P2S with the slim-type IP30 metal case is ideal for most heavy industrial demanding environments.
