LINKOH industrial 12 ports Ethernet switch managed with 8-port gigabit RJ45 + 4 gigabit SFP ports supports spanning tree STP (802.1D) and RSTP (802.1W) and MSTP (802.1s) to improve link backup and network reliability. When a one-way network fails, communication can be quickly restored to ensure uninterrupted communication for important applications. Supporting IEEE1588 v2 and transparent clock (TC) to reduce latency for industry 4.0 as well as 5G network application.
Fast Recovery Redundant Ring for Critical Network Applications
The LK4012P8C4F managed switch supports redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced G.8032 ERPS technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), and redundant power input system into customer’s industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. In a certain simple Ring network, the recovery time of data link can be as fast as 20ms.
1588 Time Protocol for Industrial Computing Networks
The LK4012P8C4F gigabit Ethernet switch is ideal for telecom and Carrier Ethernet applications, supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 and synchronous Ethernet.
Strong Layer 2 Features
The LK4012P8C4F can be programmed for advanced Layer 2 switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, 802.1Q tagged VLAN, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP), QoS, bandwidth control, IGMP snooping and MLD snooping. Via the aggregation of supporting ports, the LK4012P8C4F allows the operation of a high-speed trunk group that comes with multiple ports and supports fail-over as well.
Efficient and Various Management Methods
For efficient management, the LK4012P8C4F layer 2 switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces.
With the built-in Web-based management interface, it offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility.
For text-based management, it can be accessed via Telnet and the console port.
For standard-based monitor and management software, it offers SNMPv3 connection which encrypts the packet content at each session for secure remote management.
Intelligent SFP DDM Function
The LK4012P8C4F supports SFP-DDM (digital diagnostic monitor) function that greatly helps network administrator to easily monitor real-time parameters of the SFP transceivers, such as optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage.
High Stability Networking Solution for Industrial Areas
The LK4012P8C4F features strong, rapid, self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime. The LK4012P8C4F DIN-rail switch is the ideal solution for data centers, service providers and telecoms to build redundant connection and establish high bandwidth for Big Data server farm.
Network Extension Deployment Solution
With its additional 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP fiber optic Ethernet link capability, the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently. They are well suited for applications to uplink to backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance.
