The ComNet™ CNGE24MS has eight 100/1000Base-FX SFP ports and sixteen Gigabit combo ports that allow for TX or FX transmission. All SFP ports utilize ComNet SFP modules for fiber and connector type and distance. The IEEE802.3-compliant unit offers multiple Ethernet redundancy protocols (ComRing, C-Ring, and MSTP/RSTP/STP) which protect your applications from network interruptions or temporary malfunctions by redirecting transmission within the network. The switch provides advanced IP-based management that can limit the maximum bandwidth for each connected IP device, allowing the user to adjust usage. Application-based QoS can set a higher priority for data streaming. The Device-Binding function can prevent unauthorized network access, increasing security. The unit also provides advanced DOS/DDOS auto prevention. If IP flow becomes too large, too quickly, the switch will lock the source IP address for a set period preventing unauthorized access. The switch offers centralized and convenient management and is also configurable by Web-based Telnet, and Console (CLI) configurations.
