Robust Layer 2 Feature
The FGSW-2840 can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as port mirror, port security, port isolation and loopback detection. It also features the dynamic port link aggregation (Static Trunk and LACP), 802.1Q VLAN, Spanning Tree protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree protocol (RSTP) and Multiple Spanning Tree protocol (MSTP), static/dynamic MAC address filtering, IGMP snooping, multicast IP, multicast filtering and DHCP filtering. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the FGSW-2840 allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports. It enables a maximum of up to 6 groups of 4 ports for trunk and supports fail-over as well.
The FGSW-2840 offers comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address.
Efficient Traffic Control
The FGSW-2840 is loaded with robust QoS features and powerful traffic management to enhance services to business-class data, voice, and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast / multicast / unicast storm control, per port bandwidth control, 802.1p / CoS / IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. It guarantees the best performance at VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantages of the limited network resources.
Enhanced and Secure Management
For efficient management, the FGSW-2840 is equipped with Web, Telnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the FGSW-2840 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet. Moreover, the FGSW-2840 offers secure remote management by supporting HTTPS and SNMPv3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.
Flexible Extension Solution
The two mini-GBIC slots built in the FGSW-2840 are compatible with the 100Base-FX / 1000Base-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber transceiver to uplink to the backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance. The distance can be extended from 550 meters and 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) to 10/20/30/40/50/60/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.
