The Gigabit switch GS-2352 is equipped with a rugged metal housing with removable mounting brackets for installation in a 19" equipment cabinet. Power is supplied to the switch via the supplied IEC power cord; the connector is located on the back of the switch.This 52-port switch gets professional networks ready for the future: Along with the wide range of power management functions for energy efficiency, the LANCOM GS-2352 supports both current Internet protocols IPv4 and IPv6. The switch is also well equipped with regard to management and security: Support of the LANCOM Large Scale Monitor (LSM) and LANmonitor enable a convenient and secure remote maintenance. In addition, network access can be controlled with current technologies (802.1x, VLAN, etc.) and time-critical data can be prioritized reliably.
- IPv6 and IPv4 support for a seamless transition to modern enterprise networking
- 4 x SFP+ (1 or 10 Gigabit) ports for networks with high data volumes
- Static layer-3 routing (in preparation)
- Easy configuration of port-specific settings such as QoS and VLAN membership
- IEEE 802.1X authentication on all ports
- Energy-saving functions based on 802.3az - port deactivation if no data is transferred
- More performance
Equipped with four SFP+ ports (1 or 10 Gigabit), the LANCOM GS-2352 offers a data throughput of 96 Gbps for full performance on the backplane. It provides optimal supports of network virtualization with up to 4000 active entries for tag-based VLAN assignment: This, for instance, separates data transmissions between different LANCOM access-point SSIDs and a LANCOM router. Load balancing can be used to group up to 16 ports at a time into one of 13 trunk groups (standard compliant to IEEE 802.3ad with LACP), for example to cascade switches when the terminals are experiencing heavy traffic, or for providing optimal connectivity to network storage systems.
- More security
The LANCOM GS-2352 gives you the assurance that rogue clients cannot access your network via this switch. This is in part due to the configuration of allowed MAC addresses for each port, and also due to the secure login of clients based on IEEE 802.1x. The number of clients per port can be limited, and restrictions can be placed on the incoming and outgoing data traffic, all of which helps to ensure secure operation. The unicast/multicast/broadcast storm control functions limit the impact of attacks or malfunctions resulting from misconfigurations in the network.
- More management
The LANCOM GS-2352 stands for ease of operation with highest security. The LANCOM Large Scale Monitor (LSM) and LAN monitor offer convenient monitoring, and even larger networks are displayed in a clearly structured manner. Ideal for professional corporate networks with centralized control over network access, the LANCOM GS-2352 supports the TACACS+ communication protocol for authentication, authorization, and accounting. The switch also features a RADIUS client to integrate seamlessly into networks with RADIUS servers. For full control over all network components, LANCOM switches are easy and conveniently monitored by the LANCOM management system. Thanks to the SNMP protocol version 3, monitoring of the LANCOM GS-2352 can be encrypted.
- Future-proof thanks to IPv6
With the LANCOM GS-2352, the current infrastructure of corporate networks can be progressively upgraded to the next-generation Internet protocol IPv6. Thanks to the dual-stack implementation, the switch operates in pure IPv4, pure IPv6, or in mixed networks. This means that numerous applications such as SSL, SSH, Telnet, or TFTP can also be run on IPv6 networks. Supported IPv6 functions include stateless auto-configuration, the discovery of neighboring devices, and MLD snooping.
