Powerfully-combined 40Gbps Solution for High-capacity Networks
PLANET XGS-5240-24X2QR is a high performance Layer 2+ Stackable Managed Switch that meets the next generation Metro, Data Center, Campus and Enterprise network requirements. It supports IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 static routing capability and abundant L2/L4 switching engine, and provides high-density 24 10G SFP+ and 2 40G QSFP+ fiber interfaces delivered in a 1U rugged case. Up to 4 switches with a total of 96 10G SFP+ slots can be stacked up, making the management of a high-capacity network and all-purpose applications easier and more flexible.
Totaling 640Gbps Switching Capacity
The XGS-5240-24X2QR provides twenty-four 10Gbps SFP+ and two 40Gbps QSFP+ fiber interfaces. Each of the SFP+ slots supports Dual Speed, 10GBASE-SR/LR or 1000BASE-SX/LX and each of the QSFP+ slots supports native 40GBASE-SR/LR and four 10GBASE-SR/LR Ethernet modes.
The administrator can flexibly choose the suitable transceivers according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required extending the 1G/10G/40G networks efficiently. Besides, with 640Gbps switching capacity, the XGS-5240-24X2QR can handle extremely large amounts of data in a secure topology linking to backbone or high capacity servers where audio, video streaming and multicast applications are utilized.
Centralized IP Stacking Management
Positioned as the distribution or aggregation layer switch for large networks, the XGS-5240-24X2QR 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. The IP stacking technology groups the XGS-5240-24X2QR switches together to enable centralized management through a single unit, regardless of physical location or switch type, as long as they are connected to the same local network.
