The MEN-6328 is a high performance managed SNMP aggregation switch that provides users with 24 x 100Mbps Ethernet in SFP slots and 4 Gigabit SFP 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 through “out-of-band” RS-232 console port, the MEN-6328 facilitates network operational control and diagnosis. For increased bandwidth application, MEN-6328 can accommodate up to 16 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.
