The GE-DS-242-POE 24-Port Fast Ethernet Layer 2+ Managed PoE Switch boasts a high-performance switch architecture that is capable of providing non-blocking switch fabric and wire-speed throughput as high as 8.8Gbps. Its two built-in GbE uplink ports also offer incredible extensibility, flexibility and connectivity to the Core switch or servers.
It features in-line power that follows the standard IEEE 802.3af, enabling it to power on 24 PoE devices at a distance of up to 100 meters. This unit also offers 24 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports with 2 Gigabit TP/SFP combo ports (Port-25, 26). The two Gigabit TP/SFP combo ports can be either 1000Base-T for 10/100/1000Mbps or 1000Base-SX/LX through SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) interface.
The GE-DS-242-PoE provides an advanced Web and SNMP management interface. Built-in web based management offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. It supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be monitored via any standard-based management software.
For efficient management via web interface, the GE-DS-242-PoE can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, Port Trunking, VLAN, Port Mirroring, Rapid Spanning Tree and miscellaneous configuration. Additionally, the firmware includes advanced layer 2 plus features such as IGMP snooping, QoS (Quality of Service), broadcast storm and bandwidth control to enhance bandwidth utilization.
Providing powerful security, the GE-DS-242-PoE offers a comprehensive Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. Its protection mechanisms comprise port-based 802.1X user and device authentication. Moreover, the switch provides MAC filter, Static MAC and IP Security for enforcing security policies to the edge. The administrators can now construct highly secured corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
