Marketing Information: The ECS4100 series is ideal for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Multiple System Operators (MSOs) to provide home users with triple-play services and up to a Gigabit of bandwidth. The PoE function can be used to connect to WiFi APs , IP cameras, VoIP phones, and other powered devices. It is also an ideal Gigabit access switch for SMB, enterprise, and campus networks. The switch is packed with features that bring high availability, comprehensive security, robust multicast control, and advanced QoS to the network edge, while maintaining simple management. The switch also supports the most advanced IPv6 management, IPv6 security, and IPv6 multicast control in accordance with the growth of IPv6 deployment. ISPs can expand their services for home to business users by providing a more reliable and resilient network (ITU-T G.8032 ERPS), L2 VPNs, and advanced OAM (Operations, Administration, and Maintenance) functions to ensure service-level agreements.
Key Features and Benefits Performance and Scalability
The ECS4100 series is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 2+ managed switch with 24/56/104/56 Gbps switching capacity. The switch delivers wire-speed switching performance on all Gigabit ports, taking full advantage of existing high-performance Gigabit CPEs, PCs,11n/ac Wi-Fi APs etc, significantly improving the responsiveness of applications and file transfer times.
The four 1G SFP ports provide uplink flexibility, allowing the insertion of fiber or copper Gigabit transceivers, to create up to 4 Gbps high-speed uplinks to service provider, corporate, or campus networks, reducing bottlenecks and increasing the performance of the access network.
The IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol provides a loop-free network and redundant links to the core network with rapid convergence, to ensure faster recovery from failed links, enhancing overall network stability and reliability.
The IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol runs STP per VLAN base, providing Layer 2 load sharing on redundant links up to 64 instances.
The switch supports IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). It increases bandwidth by automatically aggregating several physical links together as a logical trunk and offers load balancing and fault tolerance for uplink connections.
The switch supports G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching with the ability for the network to detect and recover from incidents without impacting users, meeting the most demanding quality and availability requirements. Rapid recovery time when problems do occur is as low as 50 ms.
Reliability and Energy Efficiency
The design of the switch incorporates high energy efficiency in order to reduce the impact on the environment. The Green Ethernet power-saving design reduce the power consumption.
