Designed to provide fast and efficient connectivity from the network edge to a backbone switch or server, the IFS 8-port Fast Ethernet PoE Managed Switch series features 8 10/100Mbs Ethernet ports with full power isolated PoE ports. The 2 Gigabit TP/SFP combo ports can be either 10/100/1000Mbps (RJ45) or Gigabit only (1000Base-SX/BX/LX/LHX/ZX) through an SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) GBIC interface.
This switch series is designed with a high-performance switch architecture capable of providing a non-blocking switch fabric with wire-speed throughput as high as 5.6 Gbps.
For efficient switch management, the IFS 8-port Fast Ethernet PoE Managed Switch series is easily programmable, via a simple, yet powerful Web interface. This switch can be managed for functions such as Port Speed Configuration, Port Link Aggregation, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Port Mirroring, Rapid Spanning Tree and ACL security. The switch also includes advanced features such as Multicasting with IGMP snooping and query, QoS (Quality of Service), broadcast storm and bandwidth control to enhance bandwidth utilization.
These switches support standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and include an advanced SNMP feature set to monitor the status of the switch and traffic per port. The switch can also be monitored via any standards-based SNMP management software.
This switch series also offers comprehensive Layer 3 and Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) to filter out unwanted traffic. Its protection mechanisms are comprised of RADIUS and Port-Based 802.1x user and device authentication. In addition, the switches provide MAC filter, Static MAC, IP/MAC binding and Port Security for enforcing security policies to the edge. With IFS enterprise-class switches, a network administrator can now construct a highly secure network with considerably less time and effort.
