Korenix extends its series of IEC 61850-3 substation-rated switches by releasing the brand new JetNet 5828G 24+4G port Modular Managed Switch with complete Layer 3 IP Unicast routing features specifically designed to provide enhanced group management of large scale networks in power substations and electrical utilities.
Approved with the IEC61850-3 & IEEE1613 substation as well as NEMA-TS1/TS2 traffic and EN 50121-4 railway control standards, it shares the same design with the JetNet 5628G series Layer 2 switches, supporting 3 modular slots which provide different copper and fiber port combinations for having more flexibility in deploying the devices in industrial applications. The switches ensure data transmission reliability through Korenix patented MSR ring redundancy and the traditionally used MSTP network redundancy protocols, enabling users to have non-stop data flow in different network infrastructures.
With the outstanding management and security features and the ruggedized fanless, -40~85oC operating temperature range resistant design, in addition to the Layer3 parameters, the switches provide excellent network connectivity, highest data streaming quality, and become the high-end solutions to upgrade your network to an ultra high performance networking environment.
The key features of the JetNet 5828G series are:
- Flexible Data Extension via 3 modular slots and High-port Density Design
JetNet 5828G is equipped with 3 Fast Ethernet modular slots that can be easily modified. Users can benefit from the modular design to provide 24 copper ports or 18 fiber ports if they need extended data transmission. The devices can then be easily installed in any kind of industrial application providing the most suitable connectivity of your installation.
- 24+4G Layer3 Routing and Switching performance
The distinctive feature of JetNet 5828G series is their hardware-based Layer3 routing capability. JetNet 5828G equips 24+4G Layer 3 switch fabric which enables users to easily configure multiple IP subnets using a single port or the VLAN interface, and then route these subnets using IP, VLAN and Multicast Routing engine with 24x 100Mbps + 4Gbps performance.
- Enhanced Layer 3 Functionality and VRRP Router Redundancy
JetNet 5828G series support IP Route functionality, including static route, dynamic unicast routing protocol, RIP V1/V2, OSFP V1/V2 and MRoute for Multicast Routing. RIP is a typical hop-based routing protocol, which is easily applied to low size networks and the OSFP is a link state based routing protocol which can be implemented in complex IP networks. MRoute is designed to route multicast streams from different subnets within the switch.
In addition, as the switches feature L3 ACL, users can ensure advanced security of the networks by applying it to multiple subnets in different network groups. The VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) protocol allows the hosts to continuously direct traffic to the default gateway without the default gateway configuration change.
- MSR Ring Redundancy and MSTP for Reliable and Scalable Networking
The supported MSR ring redundancy and the exclusive MultiRing technology in JetNet 5828G switches allow users to form rings between switches with only 10ms recovery time. The high port density of the switches allows users to form up to 12 Fast Ethernet and 2 gigabit redundant rings and ensure network reliability in applications with increased bandwidth and expanded system. When deploying switches in legacy topologies, where the devices not always support MSR, users can benefit from the available MSTP protocol for keeping the network running with no data failure.
- Outstanding Network Management with Excellent Data Quality Performance
To meet the high-end management requirements of IEC 61850-3/IEEE 1613 standards, the JetNet 5828G series are designed with an intelligent firmware. For efficient network management they support LLDP and the Korenix patented JetView Pro NMS auto-topology visualization software. As for improving network security and the data transmission quality, the switches provide QoS, VLAN, Private VLAN and QinQ, IGMP snooping, DHCP Option82, SNMPv3.
In addition to the fanless design and -40~ +85oC operating temperature, the JetNet 5828G series support various power input types, including 90~264VAC plus 24V/48VDC or Dual AC models for flexible use in field power constructions. By combining all these features, the switches become excellent, high performance Layer 3 solutions for intelligent data connectivity in substation networks as well as for facility management, intelligent traffic control systems etc...
