Powerful All-port 10Gbps Solution for Enterprise Core Networks
PLANET SGS-6340-16XR is a Layer 3 Stackable Managed Gigabit Switch that provides high-density performance via its Layer 3 10Gigabit static routing with 16 SFP+ fiber interfaces delivered in a rugged case. The administrator can flexibly choose a suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the 10G network efficiently. Besides, with the 320Gbps switching fabric, the SGS-6340-16XR can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to backbone or high capacity servers for enterprises, data centers, campuses and so on where VoIP, video streaming, and multicast applications are utilized.
AC and DC Redundant Power to Ensure Continuous Operation
The SGS-6340-16XR is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and one additional -48 ~ -60V DC power supply unit for redundant power supply installation. 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. Furthermore, with the -48 ~ -60V DC power supply implemented, the SGS-6340-16XR can act as a telecom level device.
Layer 3 Routing Support
The Switch enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 static routing manually, the RIP (Routing Information Protocol) or OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) settings automatically. The RIP can employ the hop count as a routing metric and prevent routing loops by implementing a limit on the number of hops allowed in a path from the source to a destination. The maximum number of hops allowed for the RIP is 15. The OSPF is an interior dynamic routing protocol for autonomous system based on link-state. The protocol creates a link-state database by exchanging link-states among Layer 3 switches, and then uses the Shortest Path First algorithm to generate a route table based on that database.High Performance
With a high-performance architecture, the SGS-6340-16XR is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 320Gbps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.
Abundant IPv6 Support
The SGS-6340-16XR provides IPv6 management and enterprise-level secure features such as SSH, ACL, WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and RADIUS authentication. The SGS-6340-16XR thus helps the 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 SGS-6340-16XR is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by enterprises and campuses. The WRR functionalities include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limitation which are particularly useful for multi-tenant unit, multi-business unit, 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 SGS-6340-16XR 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 SGS-6340-16XR empowers enterprises and campuses 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 Switch 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. The VLAN groups allowed to be on the SGS-6340-16XR will be maximally up to 256. By supporting port aggregation, the SGS-6340-16XR 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.IP Stacking Management
The SGS-6340-16XR 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 SGS-6340 switch series 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.
Efficient and Secure Management
For efficient management, the SGS-6340-16XR Managed 10Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the SGS-6340-16XR offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The SGS-6340-16XR supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software.For reducing product learning time, the SGS-6340-16XR offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port. Moreover, the SGS-6340-16XR offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.Flexibility and Extension Solution
The SGS-6340-16XR provides 16 1G/10Gbps dual speed 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/SFP+ transceiver according to not only the transmission distance, but also the transmission speed required. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 10km (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.
