The new generation of GS-5220-16T2XV series has the cybersecurity feature to protect the switch management and enhance the security for mission-critical network without extra deployment cost and effort. The GS-5220-16T2XV expands its memory and upgrades the kernel of SSH and SSL protocols to provide strong protection against advanced threats. It includes a range of cybersecurity features such as DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard, ARP Inspection Protection, 802.1x port-based and mac-based network access control, RADIUS and TACACS+ user accounts management, SNMPv3 authentication, and so on to complement it as an all-security solution. The network administrator can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
The GS-5220-16T2XV and GS-5220-16T2XVR come with an intuitive touch panel on its front panel to facilitate the Ethernet management to greatly promote management efficiency in large-scale networks, such as enterprises, hotels, shopping malls, government buildings, and other public areas. It also features the following special management and status functions:
- IP address, VLAN and QoS configuration
- Port management and status, and SFP information
- Troubleshooting: Cable diagnostic and remote IP ping
- Maintenance: Reboot, factory default and save configuration
With the IPv6/IPv4 dual stack and other management functions with user-friendly interfaces, the GS-5220 series are the best choices for IP surveillance, VoIP and wireless service providers to deploy the IPv6 network. More importantly, they help SMBs upgrade their network infrastructures to the IPv6 era without any monetary investment.
To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the GS-5220 switch series not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent Layer 2 technologies, but also offers IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to cross over different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management and simple networking application.
The GS-5220 series can be programmed for advanced switch management functions, such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN , Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) , Layer 2/4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP/MLD snooping . The GS-5220 series allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports. It consists of a maximum of 9 trunk groups with 2 ports for each group, and supports connection fail-over as well.
The GS-5220 series offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 access control list (ACL) for enforcing security at the edge. It can be used to restrict to network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP port number or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also included 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based user and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy.
The GS-5220 series also provides DHCP Snooping , IP Source Guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrator can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
The GS-5220 series provides event alert function to help to diagnose the abnormal device depending on whether or not there is a break of the network connection, or the rebooting response.
For efficient management, the GS-5220 managed switch series is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the GS-5220 series offers an easy-to-use, platform independent management and configuration facility. The GS-5220 series supports SNMP and it can be managed via any management software based on the standard SNMP v1 or v2 Protocol. For reducing product learning time, the GS-5220 series offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn't need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the GS-5220 series offers the remotely secure management by supporting SSH , SSL and SNMP v3 connection where the packet content can be encrypted at each session.
The series support SFP-DDM (Digital Diagnostic Monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP and SFP+ transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
