48-Port 10/100/1000Base-T + 4-Port 1000X SFP Managed Gigabit Switch



Telecom-class Gigabit Solution for Enterprise Backbone and Data Center Networking
PLANET WGSW-52040 is a Layer 2 managed Gigabit Switch that provides high-density performance and supportsstatic Layer 3 routing. With 104Gbps switching fabric, the WGSW-52040 can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to an enterprise backbone or high capacity servers. The powerful WRR (Weighted Round Robin) and Network Security features make the WGSW-52040 perform effective data traffic control for ISP and Enterprise VoIP, video streaming and multicast applications.

Abundant IPv6 Support
The WGSW-52040 provides IPv6 management and enterprise level secure features such as SSH, ACL, WRRand RADIUS authentication besides support of the IPv4 protocol. The WGSW-52040 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.

High Performance
The WGSW-52040 provides 48 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet ports with 4 Gigabit SFP slots. It boasts a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 104Gbps, which greatly simplifies the tasks of upgrading the LAN for catering to increasing bandwidth demands.
Robust Layer 2 Features
The WGSW-52040 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. The WGSW-52040 provides 802.1Q Tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q, voice VLAN and GVRP protocol. The VLAN groups allowed to be on the WGSW-52040 will be maximally up to 256. By supporting port aggregation, the WGSW-52040 allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combined with multiple ports. It enables up to 32 groups of maximum 8 ports for trunking.

Excellent Traffic Control
The WGSW-52040 is loaded with powerful traffic management and WRR features to enhance services offered by telecoms. The WRR functionalities include wire-speed Layer 4 traffic classifiers and bandwidth limiting which are particularly useful for multi-tenant unit, multi-business unit, Telco, or Network Service applications. It also empowers the enterprises to take full advantages of the limited network resources and guarantees the best performance at VoIP and Video conferencing transmission.

Powerful Security
The WGSW-52040 supports ACL policies comprehensively. The traffic can be classified 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 WGSW-52040 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.

Efficient Management
The WGSW-52040 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. For efficient management, the WGSW-52040 Managed Gigabit Switch is equipped with console, WEB and SNMP management interfaces. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the WGSW-52040 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The WGSW-52040 supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the WGSW-520400 can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the WGSW-52040 offers secure remote management by supporting SSH connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.

Flexibility and Extension Solution
The four mini-GBIC slots built in the WGSW-52040 are compatible with 100/1000Base-X and WDM SFP (Small Factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (Multi-Mode fiber) up to above 10/50/70/120 kilometers (Single-Mode fiber or WDM fiber). It is well suited for applications within the enterprise data centers and distributions.

Server Farm Switch
The WGSW-52040 provides up to 52 Gigabit Ethernet ports for Enterprises and Network servers. It is ideal to be used as a server farm switch connecting to servers. With its port trunking function, an 8GB fat pipe is provided for connecting to the backbone if required.
Enterprise Security and QoS Edge Switch
With the IEEE 802.1x Network access authentication, the WGSW-52040 provides the MAC/IP/Protocol Access Control list and Port Security functions which can limit the number of MAC addresses to be passed through one specific port. The IGMP Snooping and QoS features in the WGSW-52040 improve the network efficiency and protect the network clients.
