The GSW-3208M2 is an 8 port 10/100/1000Mbps copper switch with 2 SFP Giga Ethernet slots for fiber optic connections. The switch has Layer 2 capabilities and has a. All copper ports support auto-negotiation of speed and detection of straight/crossover cable connections through the auto MDI/MDIX capability.The switch is offering Quality of Service (QoS) and VLAN support, both well needed in an FTTB or FTTH project. The QoS works either based on the IEEE 802.1q protocol or applies Port based or Weighted Priority policies to control and prioritize data traffic on Triple Play bandwidth demanding applications.
Besides the priority control support, an FTTx project needs also VLAN capabilities. Sometimes VLAN is used to segregate different services to same customer, but most often, VLAN networks are useful in sharing a same fiber optic link to several customers which are in proximity of each other and under the standard copper cable coverage(MDU - appartments or condominiums, MHU and business centers do qualify under these particular FTTB deployments). The FSW-3208M switch supports port based VLAN and IEEE 802.1q VLAN. Probably one of the most important features of GSW-3208M is the ability to control bandwidth and data traffic on each port, on both egress and ingress traffic.
The Rate Limit feature is extremely useful to Service Providers to easily allocate bandwidth to subscribers. This ability offers also enhanced security of the network and assures continuous traffic even when one of the data ports is heavily stressed(flooded) with useless data, with the only purpose to cause a Denial of Service for provider. The GSW-3208M2 offers also different ways for remote management. One of the strongest management features is the ability to support both in-band and out-band management through a dedicated physical copper Ethernet interface.
