The IgniteNet FusionSwitch PoE is a Gigabit Ethernet access switch available in two configurations – with 24 Gigabit PoE ports and 4 x 10G uplink ports or 8 Gigabit PoE ports and 2 x 1G uplink ports. The switch is an ideal Gigabit access switch for SMB, enterprise, and campus networks.
The FusionSwitch PoE is packed with features that bring high availability, comprehensive security, robust multicast control, and advance QoS to the network edge, while maintaining simple management. The switch also supports the most advance IPv6 management, IPv6 security, and IPv6 multicast control in accordance with the growth of IPv6 deployment.
Performance and Scalability
The IgniteNet FusionSwitch PoE is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 2+ managed switch with 128Gbps switching capacity. The switch delivers wire-speed switching performance on all Gigabit ports, taking full advantage of existing high-performance Gigabit CPEs, PCs, 11n/ac Wi-Fi APs etc, significantly improving the responsiveness of applications and file transfer times.
Continuous availability is accomplished with the support of IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), and G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection. The IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol runs STP per VLAN base, providing Layer 2 load sharing on redundant links up to 65 instances.
The FusionSwitch PoE can provide up to 30 Watts of power to attached devices, such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, surveillance cameras, etc, all over existing Cat. 5 cables. This eliminates the need for individual power sources for devices in the network, saving on costs for power cables and avoiding power outlet availability issues. If the power demand exceeds the switch’s maximum power budget, ports can be prioritized to receive power.
