What This Product Does
Designed for workgroups and departments, TL-SL5428E from TP-LINK
provides full set of layer 2 management features. It delivers maximum throughput
where you need it ¡ª to high-performance workgroups at the edge of the network,
or as a backbone for Fast Ethernet switches and high-speed servers indemanding
small networks. Moreover, TL-SL5428E switch also comes equipped with 2 combo SFP
slots, giving you greater network flexibility.
This TP-LINK L2 managed switch has robust security and management
features. An advanced Access Control List (ACL, L2 to L4) and the TP-LINK strong
safeguard provide security coverage from core to edge and protect against
broadcast storm, ARP and Denial-of-Service(DoS) attacks, etc. Quality of Service
(QoS, L2 to L4) provides enhanced traffic management capabilities to move your
data smoother and faster. Anymore, the easy-to-use web management interfaces,
along with CLI, SNMP and RMON, mean faster setup and configuration with less
downtime. For workgroup and departments requiring cost-sensitive Layer 2 Switch,
and additional Gigabit capability, TP-LINK L2 fully managed Switch TL-SL5428E
can provide you the ideal access-edge solution.
The TP-LINK fully managed L2 switch TL-SL5428E provides
non-blocking switching solution for a 10/100Mbps fast Ethernet connection. As to
the switching capacity, TL-SL5428E has a non-blocking aggregated bandwidth of
12.8Gbps. It provides 24 10/100Mbps ports and 4 gigabit 10/100/1000BASE-T ports.
In these gigabit copper ports, two of these ports are combo gigabit ports, which
will be disabled if the corresponding 1000BASE-X SFP slots are used. It can give
you greater network flexibility.
IP Clustering allows up to 32 TL-SL5428E switches to be managed
by a single IP, regardless of geographical locations. With all units identified
by a single IP address, the stack could be configured, monitored, maintained as
a single object.
Traffic running across units in this virtual stack utilizes
full-duplex interfaces and network wires, eliminating costly and cumbersome
cables, minimizing the impact of any single point of failure.
Comprehensive Security Strategy
Access Control Lists (ACL, L2 to L4) restrict access to sensitive
network resources by denying packets based on source and destination MAC
address, IP address, TCP/UDP ports and even VLAN ID. This is done by hardware,
so switching performance would not be compromised.
Moreover, the TL-SL5428E switch supports 802.1X authentication,
which is used in conjunction with a RADIUS server to require some authentication
information before access to the network is allowed. And more, it supports Guest
VLAN to enable the non-802.1X clients to access the specific network resource.
In addition£¬IP-MAC-Port-VID Binding, Port Security, Storm control, DHCP Snooping
and IP Source Guard support can protect against broadcast storms, ARP and
Denial-of-Service(DoS) attacks, etc. Regarding to the DoS defending, TL-SL5428E
provides you some typical DoS attacks to select. You can protect these attacks
more easily ever than before. TL-SL5428E will provide you robust security to the
Enterprise Level Manageability and Resiliency
TL-SL5428E supports various user-friendly standard management
features£¬such as intuitive web-based Graphical User Interface£¨GUI£©or
industry-standard Command Line Interface(CLI), either administration traffic can
be protected through SSL or SSH encryptions. SNMP (v1/2/3) and RMON support
enables the switch to be polled for valuable status information and send traps
on abnormal events. This sharing of vital management information saves time and
money. With link aggregation, spanning tree protocol£¨STP/RSTP/MSTP£©and virtual
stack, a highly intelligent and scalable topology could be established,
fulfilling the enterprise customers´ requirement of building a unified,
Optimized Voice and Video Applications
To integrate voice, data and video service on one network,
TL-SL5428E applies rich QoS policies. Administrator can designate the priority
of the traffic based on a variety of means including IP or MAC address, TCP or
UDP port number, etc, so voice and video are always clear, smooth and jitter
free. In conjunction with the Voice VLAN the switch supporting, the voice
applications will operate with much smoother performance.
For other multimedia-on-demand application such as IPTV,
TL-SL5428E provides advanced features for easy stream management. For example,
IGMP snooping ensures the switch intelligently forward the multicast stream only
to the appropriate subscribers while IGMP throttling & filtering restrict each
subscriber on a port level to prevent unauthorized multicast access.
Link aggregation (LACP)
increases aggregated bandwidth, optimizing the transport of business
IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree, provides high link availability in
multiple VLAN environments.
Support IEEE 802.1d/w Spanning Tree (STP/RSTP)
IGMP snooping allows the forwarding of multicast packets such as streaming
audio and video, without increasing network broadcast congestion.
