Powerfully-combined 40Gbps Solution for High-capacity Networks
PLANET XGS-5240-24X2QR is a high performance Layer 2+ Stackable Managed Switch that meets the next generation Metro, Data Center, Campus and Enterprise network requirements. It supports IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 static routing capability and abundant L2/L4 switching engine, and provides high-density 24 10G SFP+ and 2 40G QSFP+ fiber interfaces delivered in a 1U rugged case. Up to 4 switches with a total of 96 10G SFP+ slots can be stacked up, making the management of a high-capacity network and all-purpose applications easier and more flexible.
Totaling 640Gbps Switching Capacity
The XGS-5240-24X2QR provides twenty-four 10Gbps SFP+ and two 40Gbps QSFP+ fiber interfaces. Each of the SFP+ slots supports Dual Speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX and each of the QSFP+ slots supports native 40GBASE-SR/LR and four 10GBASE-SR/LR Ethernet modes.
The administrator can flexibly choose the suitable transceivers according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required extending the 1G/10G/40G networks efficiently. Besides, with 640Gbps switching capacity, the XGS-5240-24X2QR can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to backbone or high capacity servers where audio, video streaming and multicast applications are utilized.
Centralized IP Stacking Management
Positioned as the distribution or aggregation layer switch for large networks, the XGS-5240-24X2QR supports IP stacking function that helps network managers to easily configure up to 24 switches in the same series via one single IP address instead of connecting and setting each unit one by one. The IP stacking technology groups the XGS-5240-24X2QR switches together to enable centralized management through a single unit, regardless of physical location or switch type, as long as they are connected to the same local network.
High Reliability Hardware Stacking
Using two user specified QSFP+ ports or SFP+ ports to connect up to 4 switches in the same series and build a virtually logical facility, the XGS-5240-24X2QR gives the enterprises, service providers and telecoms flexible control over port density, uplinks and switch stack performance. The stack redundancy of the XGS-5240-24X2QR ensures that data integrity is retained even if one switch in the stack fails. You can even hot-swap switches without disrupting the network, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.
AC and DC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation
The XGS-5240-24X2QR is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one additional 36-72V DC power supply unit for redundant power supply. 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.
High Availability Mesh Networking Solution for Big Data System
By means of improving the technology of optical fiber Ethernet with highly-flexible, highly-extendable and easy-to-install features, the XGS-5240-24X2QR offers up to 640Gbps data exchange speed via optical fiber interface and the transmission distance can be extended to 120km (single-mode fiber). The XGS-5240-24X2QR features strong rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP) into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. The XGS-5240-24X2QR is the ideal solution for data centers, service providers and telecoms to build redundant connection and establish high bandwidth for Big Data server farm.
Triple Play Service of Backbone Network Solution
In telecommunications, triple play service is a marketing term for the provisioning over a single broadband connection of more bandwidth-intensive services, such as broadband Internet access, television and the latency-sensitive telephone. The XGS-5240-24X2QR provides up to 640Gbps bandwidth to exchange data, voice and video packets via fiber patch cable. It’s the suitable aggregation switch for ISPs and Telcos that builds a heavy traffic backbone network infrastructure.
Layer 3 VLAN Routing and 40G Uplink Application
With the built-in Layer 3 static routing ability, the XGS-5240-24X2QR ensures reliable routing between VLANs and network segments. The XGS-5240-24X2QR, the ideal solution for enterprises, offers greater security, control and bandwidth conservation, and high-speed uplink.
