This 26-port switch gets professional networks ready for the future: Along with the wide range of power management functions for energy efficiency, the LANCOM GS-2326 supports both current Internet protocols IPv4 and IPv6. The switch is also well equipped with regard to management and security: Support of the LANCOM Large Scale Monitor (LSM) and LANmonitor enable a convenient and secure remote maintenance. In addition, network access can be controlled with current technologies (802.1x, VLAN, etc.) and time-critical data can be prioritized reliably.
The LANCOM GS-2326 offers a data throughput of 52 Gbps for full performance on the backplane. It provides optimal support of network virtualization with up to 4000 active entries for tag-based VLAN assignment: This, for instance, separates data transmissions between different LANCOM access-point SSIDs and a LANCOM router. Load balancing can be used to group up to 16 ports at a time into one of 13 trunk groups (standard compliant to IEEE 802.3ad with LACP), for example to cascade switches when the terminals are experiencing heavy traffic, or for providing optimal connectivity to network storage systems.
With the LANCOM GS-2326, the current infrastructure of corporate networks can be progressively upgraded to the next-generation Internet protocol IPv6. Thanks to the dual-stack implementation, the switch operates in pure IPv4, pure IPv6, or in mixed networks. This means that numerous applications such as SSL, SSH, Telnet, or TFTP can also be run on IPv6 networks. Supported IPv6 functions include stateless auto-configuration, the discovery of neighboring devices, and MLD snooping.
The LANCOM GS-2326 stands for ease of operation with highest security. The LANCOM Large Scale Monitor (LSM) and LANmonitor offer convenient monitoring, and even larger networks are displayed in a clearly structured manner. Ideal for professional corporate networks with centralized control over network access, the LANCOM GS-2326 supports the TACACS+ communication protocol for authentication, authorization, and accounting. The switch also features a RADIUS client to integrate seamlessly into networks with RADIUS servers. For full control over all network components, LANCOM switches are easy and conveniently monitored by the LANCOM Management System. Thanks to the SNMP protocol version 3, monitoring of the LANCOM GS-2326 can be encrypted.
