WGS-4215-8T

Industrial 8-Port 10/100/1000T Wall-mount Managed Switch (-40~75 degrees C)

Easily-deployed and Expanded Network
Designed to be installed in a wall enclosure or simply mounted on a wall at any convenient location, PLANET WGS-4215-8T, an innovative, Industrial 8-Port 10/100/1000T Wall-mount Managed Switch, offers IPv6/IPv4 dual stack management, intelligent Layer 2 management function, and user-friendly interface. The WGS-4215-8T is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance. Featuring ultra networking speed and operating temperature ranging from -40to 75 degrees C in a compact but rugged IP30 metal housing, the WGS-4215-8T is an ideal solution to meeting the demand for the following network applications:
■ Building/Home automation network
■ Internet of things (IoT)
■ IP surveillance
■ Wireless LAN

Innovative Wall-mount Installation

The WGS-4215-8T is specially designed to be installed in a narrow environment, such as wall enclosure or electric weak box. The compact, flat and wall-mounted design fits easily in any space-limited location. It adopts the user-friendly “Front Access” design, making the installing, cable wiring, LED monitoring and maintenance of the WGS-4215-8T placed in an enclosure very convenient for technicians. The WGS-4215-8T can be installed by fixed wall mountingmagnetic wall mounting or DIN rail, thereby making its usability more flexible.

Dual Power Input for High Availability Network System
The WGS-4215-8T features a strong dual power input system (12V~48V DC or 24V AC) incorporated into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. In the example below, when the 3-pin terminal block fails to work, the hardware failover function will be activated automatically to keep powering the WGS-4215-8T via the DC plug power alternatively without any loss of operation.

Environmentally Hardened Design

With IP30, flat but rugged metal housing protection, the WGS-4215-8T provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets without air conditioner. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the WGS-4215-8T can be placed in almost any difficult environment.

IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Management

Supporting both IPv6 and IPv4 protocols, the WGS-4215-8T helps the SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment as its network facilities need not be replaced or overhauled if the IPv6 FTTx edge network is set up.

Robust Layer 2 Features

The WGS-4215-8T can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q VLAN, Q-in-Q VLANMultiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), Loop and BPDU GuardIGMP Snooping, and MLD Snooping. Via the link aggregation, the WGS-4215-8T allows the operation of a high-speed trunk to combine with multiple ports such as a 16Gbps fat pipe, and supports fail-over as well. Also, the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is the Layer 2 protocol included to help discover basic information about neighboring devices on the local broadcast domain.

Efficient Traffic Control
The WGS-4215-8T is loaded with robust QoS features and powerful traffic management to enhance services to business-class data, voice, and video solutions. The functionality includes broadcast/multicast/unicast storm control, per port bandwidth control, 802.1p/CoS/IP DSCP QoS priority and remarking. It guarantees the best performance at VoIP and video stream transmission, and empowers the enterprises to take full advantage of the limited network resources.

Friendly and Secure Management

For efficient management, the WGS-4215-8T is equipped with webTelnet and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the WGS-4215-8T offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard SNMP, the switch can be managed via any standard management software. For text-based management, the switch can be accessed via Telnet. Moreover, the WGS-4215-8T offers secure remote management by supporting SSHSSL and SNMP v3 connections which encrypt the packet content at each session.

Advanced Network Security

PLANET WGS-4215-8T offers a comprehensive IPv4/IPv6 Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1X port-based user and device authentication, which can be deployed with RADIUS to ensure the port level security and block illegal users. With the protected port function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to guarantee user privacy.
Furthermore, the WGS-4215-8T also provides DHCP snoopingIP source guard and dynamic ARP inspection functions to prevent IP snooping from attack and discarded ARP packets with invalid MAC address. The network administrators can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.

Ready to Go with IoT Generation

Security Building Automation Switch

Suitable for buildings where security is strictly to be enforced, the WGS-4215-8T Industrial Wall-mount Managed Switch offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL). The switch can restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP ports or defined typical network applications. With the WGS-4215-8T, a tightly-controlled network can be easily had in no time.

Industrial Area Switch for Data Collection and Forwarding

The WGS-4215-8T is equipped with 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports offeringauto MDI/MDIX feature providing 16Gbps non-blocking switch fabric and the 8K MAC address table so that the WGS-4215-8T can perform wire-speed packets transfer without the risk of packet loss. The WGS-4215-8T with the slim type IP30 metal case is ideal for most heavy industrial demanding environments.
