The MEN-5528 is a high performance managed SNMP Layer 2+ switch that provides users with 24 X 10/100Mbps Ethernet and 2 Gigabit Combo ports. The SFP slots support Multi-rate Gigabit and Fast Ethernet. The Web/SNMP management provides remote control capability that gives flexible network management and monitoring options. Whether managed through “in-band” SNMP management station, internet web browser, or 'out-of-band' on the RS-232 console port, the MEN-5528 facilitates network operational control and diagnosis. For increased bandwidth application, MEN-5528 can accommodate up to 14 trunk groups with LACP link aggregation. Moreover, These trunk ports are with fail-over function to provide redundant back up if one or more of ports are malfunctioning. It also supports both 802.1Q VLAN and GVRP VLAN Registration thereby simplifying network traffic segmentation, broadcast domain extension and other associated benefits of constructing VLANs. The abundance of features translates into increased efficiency and performance in network administration.
