For fast and efficient connectivity from the network edge to a backbone switch or server, the IFS 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Managed Switch features eight 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports with 2 100/1000Mbps SFP ports. The 2 SFP ports can support either 100Base-X or 1000Base-X through an SFP interface.
For efficient switch management, the Switch is easily programmable via a simple, yet powerful Web Interface. The switch can manage Port Speed Configuration, Port Link Aggregation, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-Q VLAN, Port Mirroring, Spanning Tree and ACL security. The switch includes advanced features such as Multicasting with IGMP snooping and query, QoS, broadcast storm and bandwidth control to enhance bandwidth utilization.
Full Power, Isolated per Port PoE
This Gigabit PoE Managed Switch provides optimized deployment and safe power management to PoE edge devices such as IP Surveillance cameras or access control panels. Full power PoE-af (15.4w) is provided to all 8-ports with no power sharing, and added port circuit protection isolates and prevents power interference between ports. In addition to standard IEEE 802.3af (15.4w), the IFS Gigabit PoE Managed Switch provides support for up to 5 ports of IEEE 802.3at (30w) PoE+.
Engineered for Real-time Performance
This switch is designed with a high performance non-blocking switch fabric and provides wire-speed throughput to ensure optimum quality of service. The Switch classifies and prioritizes Layer 2 802.1p or Layer 3 IP TOS/DSCP traffic into four hardware queues that support strict or Weighted Round Robin (WRR) queuing algorithms. This functionality provides maximum allocation of limited network resources and guarantees best performance for real-time applications.
Built-in Monitoring, Diagnostics and Trouble-shooting Tools
The Switch can be configured to monitor a connected PD (Powered Device) status in real-time via IP ping. If a PD (IP Camera or IP Access Reader) no longer responds to a ping, the switch will cycle PoE power on the port thus rebooting the PD back to operational status. This along with built-in cable diagnostics, and support for SNMP can greatly enhance the IT administrator’s trouble-shooting and management abilities, saving time and labor while keeping network downtime to a minimum
