- Performance and Scalability
ECS4510 series is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 2+ managed switch, with 128/176Gbps switching capacity, it delivers wire-speed switching performance on all Gigabit ports, taking full advantage of existing high-performance on PCs, laptops, significantly improving the responsiveness of applications and file transfer times. The ECS4510 series provides two fixed 10G SFP+ ports and one expansion slot for a dual-port 10G SFP+ module.
- Continuous Availability
IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol provides a loop-free network and redundant links to the core network with rapid convergence, to ensure faster recovery from failed links, enhancing overall network stability and reliability. IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol runs STP per VLAN base, providing Layer 2 load sharing on redundant links up to 32 instances. The ECS4510 series supports IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). It increases bandwidth by automatically aggregating several physical links together as a logical trunk and offers load balancing and fault tolerance for uplink connections. The ECS4510 series supports G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching, with the ability for the network to detect and recover from incidents without impacting users, meeting the most demanding quality and availability requirements. Rapid recovery time when problems do occur is as low as 50m/sec.
- Comprehensive QoS
The ECS4510 series offers advanced QoS for marking, classification, and scheduling to deliver best-in-class performance for data, voice, and video traffic at wire speed. Eight egress queues per port enable differentiated management of up to eight traffic types through the switch. Traffic is prioritised according to 802.1p and DSCP to provide optimal performance for real-time applications. Weighted Round Robin (WRR) and Strict Priority ensure differential prioritisation of packet flows and avoid congestion of ingress and egress queues. Asymmetric bidirectional rate-limiting, per port or per traffic class, preserves network bandwidth and allows maximum control of network resources. The ECS4510 series supports Three Color Marker and Policing Single rate: Committed Information Rate (CIR) Two rate: CIR + Peak Information Rate (PIR) Traffic Policing: Which drop or remark the priority tags of packets when they exceed burst size.
- Enhanced Security
Port Security limits the total number of devices from using a switch port and protects against MAC flooding attacks. IEEE 802.1x port-based or MAC-based access control ensures all users are authorised before being granted access to the network. When a user is authenticated, the VLAN, QoS and security policy will be automatically applied the port where the user connected, otherwise, it will be grouped to guest VLAN with limited access. DHCP snooping allows a switch to protect a network from rogue DHCP servers to offer invalid IP address. IP Source Guard stop malicious people from using IP addresses that weren‘t assigned to the Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be used to restrict access to sensitive network resources by denying packets based on source and destination MAC addresses, IP addresses, TCP/UDP ports. This is done by hardware, so switching performance is not compromised. Security Shell and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL/HTTPS) encrypt Telnet and web access to the switch, providing secure network management. Private VLANs (Traffic segmentation per port) isolates edge ports to ensure user privacy. DAI (Dynamic ARP Inspection) is a security feature that validates Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) packets in a network. DAI allows a network administrator to intercept, log, and discard ARP packets with invalid MAC address to IP address bindings.
- Simple Management
Industry standard Command Line Interface (CLI) via console port or Telnet provides a common user interface and command set for users to manipulate the switch.
- Layer 3 Features IPv4 Static Route
The Edge-Core ECS4510 series supports hardware-based IPv4 routeing for maximum performance. Routeing protocols such as Static Routes and RIP v1/v2 are supported.
