Advantages

Scenario of LANCOM network topologies with aggregation and access switches

Flexible network topologies

The LANCOM XS-6128QF is an ideal aggregation instance for the networking of access switches. Depending on the size of the installation, it integrates into the network topology either on the top level as core switch facing the WAN (2-tier design) or on the second level as distribution switch between a core switch and the access switches (3-tier design).

State-of-the-art 10G Multi-Gigabit performance on all ports

With its future-proof fiber-optic ports, the LANCOM XS-6128QF offers extremely high port performance for resilient networks that meet the increasing demands of IoT, mobile devices and cloud applications. 20 SFP+ ports (10G), 4 of which can be used as Multi-Gigabit Ethernet (mGbE) combo ports, serve as a high-performance distribution instance for establishing switch structures. A massive backhaul capacity is available either via 2 QSFP+ (40G) 4 SFP28 (25G) high-speed uplink ports. Backplane stacking via 4 SFP-DD ports (50G) ensure highest availability. Ideal for virtualized applications and use as an upstream campus switch in very large distributed enterprise networks.

Flexibility and investment protection thanks to LANCOM fail-safe stacking

The LANCOM fail-safe stacking feature keeps your network flexible and your investment secure. Stacking makes child’s play of expanding your network, as several physical switches combine into a single logical unit for convenient maintenance and management. When you expand your network, the new switch automatically receives a configuration from the stack master and is ready to use within seconds. Furthermore, device or network redundancies can be implemented with stacking for maximum reliability. With the LANCOM XS-6128QF, stack processing with a separate backplane CPU remains independent of network load thanks to four dedicated SFP-DD backplane stacking ports (50G).

 

Full control over your investment

Fully equipped ex works, ready for immediate use, everything from a single source: In accordance with the principle of "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO), the LANCOM XS-6128QF gives you planning security from the very beginning and at all times with regard to the acquisition costs for your network expansion. The full expansion with all necessary ports in the industry standard makes time-consuming and costly retrofitting of proprietary port modules a thing of the past. Furthermore, our accessories portfolio provides you with the necessary SFP modules and direct attach cables directly from us in tested LANCOM quality. In addition to the guarantee of maximum operational reliability through extensive load and long-term tests of the modules, you also avoid long delivery times.

Maximum operational security

The LANCOM XS-6128QF features two integrated hot-swappable PSUs (power supply units). This allows a quick and uninterrupted replacement of defective power supply units. Front-to-back airflow design with swappable fans improves cooling in 19-inch racks and extends the product lifetime. Stacking is a major contribution to highly resilient scenarios.

LANCOM konfigurierbare Zugangskontrolle

Configurable access control

The LANCOM XS-6128QF stops rogue clients from gaining unauthorized access to the network. This is ensured by secured access control on all ports as per IEEE 802.1X (port-based, single, multi, and MAC-based) or by ACLs (access control lists).

Static routing & DHCP server

The LANCOM XS-6128QF can handle layer-3 tasks to offer, for example, a DHCP server for IP-address management or to define fixed network routes across one or more network segments. This takes load off of the router and increases the overall speed of data exchange. Router capacities are freed up to handle the external data traffic and improve the overall network efficiency.

Software defined device management in the LANCOM Management Cloud WEBconfig

SD-LAN – easy management of complex networking scenarios

With the LANCOM Management Cloud, the LANCOM XS-6128QF offers quick and easy network integration as well as automatic provision of the configuration. This makes it easy to manage even complex networking scenarios. With SD-LAN, holistic network orchestration replaces the configuration of individual devices and allows the automatic assignment of VLANs to the required switch ports. Configurations are customized to the multi-site network architecture and, with a click of a mouse, they are rolled-out or updated simultaneously to every site.

Secure remote management

Secure communication protocols such as SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 mean that the LANCOM XS-6128QF is ideal for the professional management of remote networks. The switch also supports the TACACS+ protocol for authentication, authorization and accounting. This optimized solution promises maximum security for multi-site network management and monitoring.
