All Gb L3 Switch

Dependable edge switch with robust and flexible security that reduces the risk of information leakage and unauthorized access. With an optional L3 license, it can serve as a core switch in networks for small enterprises and campuses.

Security WEB, MAC, IEEE 802.1X and DHCP snooping authentications are provided. Multiple stations can be authenticated on the same port with different authentication methods. The security policy is user-configured and flexible. SSH and Telnet access are provided. Access authentication with a RADIUS server is available. A hardware-based Access List can filter L2 through L4 while operating as a L2 switch.
High Reliability and Flexibility Ethernet Ring Protection (MMRP-Plus) achieves 200msec fast failover and flexible network design regardless of topology, for example triangle, square, and ladder. The loop-watch feature detects network and local loops. APRESIA PQ (priority queue) mapping identifies sensitivity not only to CoS/ToS/DSCP but also to L2 through L4 headers.
Operational Administrative The SD Card Boot feature reduces failure recovery time/cost by automatically downloading configurations and firmware from SD memory card.
System-log is always registered into the device. System-log is registered even when the unexpected power-off is occured, so registered log can be seen after a failure.
Management software(HCLManager, ApresiaManager etc.) enables graphical operational administrative.
Eco-responsive Cutting-edge LSI technologies promote eco-responsibility by enabling low power consumption and support conformance with recognized standards, such as RoHS. The BoxCore Solution also reduces total power consumption and space requirements, so important to data centers. Apresia5428GT provides FAN-less (Semi-FAN-less) type solution for meeting room and office room such as required silent situation.
Scalability The versatile L2 switch can be upgraded to a L2/L3 switch with an optional L3 license, thereby reducing network costs.
