The Edge-Core ECS4620 Series is a compact but high-performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 switch featuring 28 /52 ports; with 24/48 10/100/1000Base-T ports, 2 10G SFP+ ports, and one 10G dual port expansion slot. The switch is ideal for high-performance server aggregations, such as enterprise data center, where it can connect high-end or network-attached files servers over fiber ports. It can also deployed as a backbone upgrade, or to provide Gigabit -to-the-desktop for power users. This switch is packed with features and is a cost-effective solution that brings continuous availability, enhanced security and advanced QoS to the network edge, while maintaining simplicity of management.
Key Features and Benefits
Performance and Scalability
ECS4620 Series is a high performance Gigabit Ethernet Layer 3 managed switch, with 128/176Gbps switching capacity, it delivers wire-speed switching performance on all Gigabit ports, taking full advantage of existing high-performance on PCs, laptops, significantly improving the responsiveness of applications and file transfer times.
IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol provides a loop-free network and redundant links to the core network with rapid convergence, to ensure faster recovery from failed links, enhancing overall network stability and reliability.
IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol runs STP per VLAN base, providing Layer 2 load sharing on redundant links up to 32 instances.
The ECS4620 Series supports IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). It increases bandwidth by automatically aggregating several physical links together as a logical trunk and offers load balancing and fault tolerance for uplink connections.
The ECS4620 Series supports G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching, with the ability for the network to detect and recover from incidents without impacting users, meeting the most demanding quality and availability requirements. Rapid recovery time when problems do occur is as low as 50 msec.
The ECS4620 Series offers advanced QoS for marking, classification, and scheduling to deliver best-in-class performance for data, voice, and video traffic at wire speed. Eight egress queues per port enable differentiated management of up to eight traffic types through the switch. Traffic is prioritized according to 802.1p and DSCP to provide optimal performance for real-time applications. Weighted Round Robin (WRR) and strict priority ensure differential prioritization of packet flows and avoid congestion of ingress and egress queues.
Asymmetric bidirectional rate-limiting, per port or per traffic class, preserves network bandwidth and allows maximum control of network resources. The ECS4620 Series supports Three Color Marker and Policing Single rate: Committed Information Rate (CIR) Two rate: CIR + Peak Information Rate (PIR) Traffic Policing: Which drop or remark the priority tags of packets when they exceed burst size.
