  20. 20. EtherWAN Features & Applications<br />
  21. 21. Managed Devices<br />Allows more control over your LAN traffic and offer advanced features to control that traffic; enables port configuration, prioritize traffic, create VLAN’s, bandwidth allocation per port, access & security, etc.<br />Advantages<br /><ul><li>Highly robust management features
  22. 22. Total Cost of Ownership can be reduced by creating VLANs (increasing port footprint)
  23. 23. Aggregated bandwidth across the network can be controlled
  24. 24. Port and User security is addressed and maintained</li></ul>Disadvantages<br /><ul><li>Cost is typically higher than an un-managed or web-managed device
  25. 25. Requires more technical knowledge of the user to deploy and maintain
  26. 26. Can be large and highly complex as network scales</li></li></ul><li>Managed Devices – Features<br /><ul><li>α-ring
  27. 27. Designed to overcome traditional STP and RSTP’s inability to provide fast network recovery and minimize packet loss caused by link failure. α-ring sets the LAST connection as the backup path – ensures no additional packet loss when the ring is restored in < 15ms.
  28. 28. SNMP
  29. 29. Management tool used for collecting information from, and configuring network devices on an IP network. Use to monitor network performance, detect faults or unauthorized access with minimal impact on network traffic.
  30. 30. 802.1p QoS
  31. 31. Used to tag frames on an Ethernet frame header in an 802.1 network, and specifies a priority value (0-7, IE: voice / video) to differentiate traffic on the network.
  32. 32. 802.1q VLAN Tagging
  33. 33. A standard that allows multiple bridged networks to transparently share the same physical network link without leakage of information between networks
  34. 34. Port Mirroring
  35. 35. Used to send a copy of network packets seen on one switch (or an entire VLAN) to a network monitoring connection on another switch. Commonly used for network appliances (typically a thin client) that require monitoring of network traffic, such as an intrusion detection system.</li></li></ul><li>Managed Devices – Features<br /><ul><li>802.1D STP
  36. 36. Basic function is to prevent bridge loops and broadcast storm(s). Creates spanning tree within a mesh network of connected Layer 2 devices, disables those links that are not part of the spanning tree, leaving a single active path between any two network nodes. Can take 30-50 seconds to respond to a topology change.
  37. 37. 802.1w RSTP
  38. 38. Allows faster spanning tree convergence after a topology change, the standard network response time is 6 seconds.
  39. 39. 802.1s MSTP
  40. 40. Merged into 802.1Q (VLAN Tagging)
  41. 41. IGMP (Snooping – most requested feature in security applications)
  42. 42. Only need for IPv4, IGMP is a communications protocol that is used to manage the membership of IP multicast groups (but does not act as a transport protocol – analogous to ICMP for unicast connections. It allows more efficient utilization of network resources when supporting applications such as streaming video
  43. 43. RADIUS Support
  44. 44. RADIUS is a networking protocol that provides centralized Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) to allow users access and usage of network resources. EtherWAN’s managed devices support RADIUS processes</li></li></ul><li>Managed Devices – Features<br /><ul><li>CLI
  45. 45. Command Line Interface – integral to remote device setup, management and troubleshooting
  46. 46. 802.1x Security
  47. 47. Network protocol that provides an authentication mechanism to devices wishing to attach to a LAN or WLAN, and involves three components: a supplicant, an authenticator (Ethernet switch), and an authentication server. The authenticator acts as a security guard to a protected network area
  48. 48. NTP
  49. 49. Network Time Protocol – an Internet protocol used to synchronize the switch clock to a time reference, such as the Naval Observatory or GPS source.
  50. 50. Built in RTC (real time clock)
  51. 51. A clock that is used to time stamp events and statistic logs. The RTC is generally synchronized by NTP so every RTC in a network is in synchronization.
  52. 52. Bandwidth Rate Control
  53. 53. Allows the user to limit the bit rate on a port by port basis. This is sometimes used to limit the bit rate for a streaming device such as a CCTV camera to prevent it from flooding the network in the event that it malfunctions.
  54. 54. MAC-based Trunking
  55. 55. Allows two or more ports to be trunked or bonded as one port to increase bandwidth between two switches or a switch and another device.</li></li></ul><li>Applications<br />
