IPv6 Routing and 10G Ethernet Switch Solutions for the Next Generation Internet Protocol

The XGS3-24242 Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch supports multi-layer IPv6/IPv4 Gigabit Ethernet Routing, and provides 24 100/1000Mbps SFP slots, 16 shared 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet ports, 4 extra 1/10G SFP+ uplink slots and 2 20G QSFP+ slots for Hardware stacking to meet the bandwidth requirements and protect network investment for enterprises. The XGS3-24242 is implemented with the following advanced technologies:

  • IPv6/IPv4 Routing and Management
  • 10G Ethernet Switching
  • Single IP Address Management
  • Redundant Power System
  • QSFP+ slots for Hardware Stacking

The XGS3-24242 supports IP Stacking technology that helps to manage and configure up to 24 units via one single IP address. The IP Stacking technology is positioned as the distribution or aggregation layer switch for large networks. It is suitable for campus networks, metropolitan IP networks and other large infrastructures as it offers intelligent security features, high performance and flexibility. The XGS3-24242 can also be an excellent choice as a core layer switch for enterprises, data centers or small and medium sized networks.

High Reliability Hardware Stacking

The QSFP+ port can connect several servers and build a virtually logical facility. The XGS3-24242 gives the enterprises, service providers and telecoms flexible control over port density, uplinks and switch stack performance. The stack redundancy of the XGS3-24242 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

Supporting 10Gb Ethernet

With 10Gbps uplink, the XGS3-24242 can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology, linking to an enterprise backbone or high capacity servers. Each of the SFP+ slots supports Dual-Speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX, meaning the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently.

High Performance

The XGS3-24242 boasts a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 208Gbps. There is no longer a need to upgrade the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.

Rich Multi-layer and Multicast Networking Protocols

The XGS3-24242 supports various Layer 2 and management networking protocols to meet the requirements of complex network constructions. It is compatible with 802.1D/w/s, 802.1Q, 802.1p, 802.3ad, 802.3x, GVRP, DHCP, SNTP, etc. The XGS3-24242 also supports IPv6/IPv4 routing protocols including Layer 3 IP static routing, RIPv1/v2, RIPng, OSPFv2/v3, and VRRP protocols. Built in with abundant multicast features, the XGS3-24242 supports rich L2 multicast features such as IGMPv1/v2/v3 and MLDv1/v2 snooping, and L3 multicast protocols — DVMRP, PIM-DM, PIM-SM and PIM-SSM. Offering the rich application experience, the product supports multicast VLAN registration, multicast receive control and illegal multicast source detect functions. The XGS3-24242 solution performs a cost-effective solution for today with the ability to expand as network demands grow.

Full IPv6 Support

The XGS3-24242 provides IPv6 management and enterprise-level secure features such as SSH, ACL, WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and RADIUS authentication. Thus, the XGS3-24242 helps enterprises to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment. In addition, you don’t need to replace the network facilities when the IPv6 FTTx edge network is built.

Excellent and Secure Traffic Control

The XGS3-24242 is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by telecoms and enterprises. The WRR functionalities include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limitation which are particularly useful for multi-tenant units, multi-business units, Telco, or network service applications.

Powerful Security

The ACL policies supported can classify the traffic by source/destination IP addresses, source/destination MAC addresses, IP protocols, TCP/UDP, IP precedence, time ranges and ToS. Moreover, various policies can be conducted to forward the traffic.

The XGS3-24242 also provides IEEE 802.1x port based access authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS, to ensure the port level security and block illegal users. Thus, the XGS3-24242 empowers ISP and enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance in VoIP and video conferencing transmission.

Robust Layer 2 Features

The XGS3-24242 can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, port aggregation, VLAN, Spanning Tree Protocol, WRR, bandwidth control and IGMP snooping. It also supports 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q, voice VLAN and GVRP Protocol. By supporting port aggregation, the XGS3-24242 allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combined with multiple ports. It enables up to 128 groups for trunking with a maximum of 8 ports for each group.

Efficient Management

For efficient management, the XGS3-24242 Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the XGS3-24242 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The XGS3-24242 supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the XGS3-24242 can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the XGS3-24242 offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.

Flexibility and Extension Solution

The XGS3-24242 provides 24 100/1000Mbps dual speed SFP Fiber ports and four 1/10Gbps SFP+ Fiber ports. Each of the SFP+ slots supports Dual-Speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX. Therefore, the administrator 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 2km (multi-mode fiber) or up to 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 km (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.

Intelligent SFP/SFP+ Diagnosis Mechanism

The XGS3-24242 supports SFP/SFP+ DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP/SFP+, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.

AC and DC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation

The XGS3-24242 is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one empty power supply slot for redundant DC power supply (XGS3-PWR150-48), which supports -40 ~ -60V DC power input. With XGS3-PWR150-48 DC power supply implemented, the XGS3-24242 can be applied as a telecom level device. A redundant power system is also provided to enhance the reliability with either AC or DC power supply units. The redundant power system is specifically designed to handle the demands of high-tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity.
