The EstiNet SDN Education Switch supports very complete layer-2 features, including flow control, STP/RSTP/MSTP, 802.1Q tag VLAN, 802.1v protocol-based VLAN, dynamic/static Link Aggregation (LAG) and multicast support. With the multicast support, the switch provide the IGMP snooping and MLD snooping to ensure that the switch intelligently forwards the multicast frames only to the appropriate multicast frame subscribers.
By using the advanced QoS function of the EstiNet SDN Education Switch, the administrator can designate the priority of the streams based on different class of service, for prioritizing delay-sensitive services such as voice and video applications. The EstiNet SDN Education Switch provides port-based, flow-based, 802.1P, IP DSCP class of service.
The EstiNet SDN Education Switch provides a variety of advanced security features to safeguard your network. These security protection functions include 802.1X, RADIUS/TACACS+, HTTPS, SSL, Port Security, Storm Control, Denial-of-Service (DOS) Prevention, Dynamic ARP Inspection, IP Source Guard, etc. With the powerful ACL utility, administrators can restrict sensitive portions of the network from unauthorized users and guard against network attacks. The EstiNet SDN Education Switch supports MAC-based ACL, IPV4-based ACL and IPV6-based ACL.
The EstiNet SDN Education Switch provides the built-in IEEE802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) feature and many innovations on energy saving (such as Link Down Power Saving, Cable Length Power Saving, No Traffic or Small Traffic Power Saving), which can reduce energy consumption of the Ethernet devices.
The EstiNet SDN Education Switch enables the state-of-the-art SDN functions for network administrators. By collaborating with EstiNet's SDN controller applications,the EstiNet SDN Education Switch can perform fine-grained, flow-based network management functions, such as switch configuration auto-provisioning, dynamic flow-based network traffic monitoring, and abnormal traffic detection/rejection.
