PLANET XGS3-42000R Core Layer Routing Switch is specially designed for large network applications such as enterprises, campuses, communities, ISPs and data center networks where flexible configuration, large capacity, high density, high reliability and advanced traffic management are required. The XGS3-42000R is the High-density Chassis Ethernet Switch built with 4 module slots and redundant power supply. It provides great porting flexibility for network deployment by offering various combinable management modules and standard interfaces. For instance, one management module can be collaborated with three standard modules, or two management modules work with two standard modules to mutually perform system backup. Within the 6U height, single chassis, the maximum configuration can be:
– 160 10/100/1000BASE-T Copper Slots
– 156 100/1000BASE-SX/LX SFP Fiber Slots
– 60 10G SFP+ Fiber Slots
– 6 40G QSFP+ Fiber Slots
Positioned as the core layer switch, the XGS3-42000R serves ideally for large- and medium-sized networks and IP metropolitan networks by supplying advanced intelligent and secure features and giving high performance and flexibility.
Supporting 10/40-Gigabit Fiber Optic Ethernet
10/40-Gigabit Ethernet, which adopts the full-duplex technology instead of the low-speed, half-duplex CSMA/CD protocol, is a big leap in the evolution of Ethernet. 10/40-Gigabit Ethernet can be deployed in the star or ring topology. With the 10/40-Gigabit Ethernet technology applied, the XGS3-42000R provides broad bandwidth and powerful processing capacity. It is suitable for metropolitan networks and wide area networks. Using the XGS3-42000R, users can simplify network structures and reduce cost of network construction.
Full IPv6 Support
The XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch supports IPv6 routing in hardware for maximum performance. As more network devices are growing and the need for larger addressing and higher security becomes critical, the XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch is the right product to meet the requirements.
The XGS3-42000R delivers wire-speed Gigabit and 40-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in a highly-flexible and resilient modular platform. With high switching capacity, the XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch supports wire-speed L2/L3 forwarding and high routing performance for IPv4 and IPv6 protocols. The scalable and flexible modular architecture supports up to 1728Gbps forwarding performance in a single system. The XGS3-42000R is ideal for the core layer of campuses, enterprise networks and the aggregation layer of IP metropolitan networks.
Rich Multi-Layer and Multicast Networking Protocols
The XGS3-42000R supports various Layer 2 and management networking protocols to meet the requirements of complex network constructions. It is compatible with 802.1d/w/s, 802.1Q, 802.1p, 802.3ad, 802.3x, GVRP, DHCP, SNTP, etc.
The Chassis Switch also supports IPv6/IPv4 routing protocols including Layer 3 IP Static Routing, RIPv1/v2, OSPF, and VRRP protocols. Built in with abundant multicast features, the XGS3-42000R supports rich L2 multicast features such as IGMP snooping v1/v2/v3 and L3 multicast protocols — DVMRP, PIM-DM, PIM-SM and PIM-SSM. Offering the rich application experience, the product supports multicast VLAN registration, multicast receive control and illegal multicast source detect functions. The XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch solution is cost-effective yet has the ability to expand to meet today’s demand for network expansion.
PLANET XGS3-42000R offers comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP ports or defined typical network applications. Its protection mechanism also comprises 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 XGS3-42000R Net Security also provides DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard and Dynamic ARP Inspection functions to prevent from IP snooping attack and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
Enhanced Quality of Service
The XGS3-42000R Switch fully supports DiffServ module, so users can specify a queue bandwidth on each port. WRR/SP/SWRR scheduling is also provided. The XGS3-42000R supports the port security to enable trusted CoS, DSCP, IP precedence and port priority. Users can modify packets’ DSCP and COS values so that the traffic can be classified by port, VLAN, DSCP, IP precedence and ACL table. User can also modify packets’ DSCP and IP precedence values to specify different bandwidths for voice, data and video to customize different qualities of service.
Efficient and Secure Management
For efficient management, the XGS3-42000R Chassis Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the XGS3-42000R offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The XGS3-42000R supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be managed via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the XGS3-42000R can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the XGS3-42000R offers secure remote management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connection which encrypt the packet content at each session.
