L2 Switch P3608FG

  • 08 fixed 10/100Base-TX ports
  • 1 Port per Option Module
  • 100Base-FX, 1000Base-X (GBIC), 1000Base-TX
  • RS-232C Serial Port (RJ-45 type)

Premier 3608FG switch is a Metro Ethernet based work group L2 switch being used in the segment of access network and providing broadband multimedia service. It is suitable for connecting directly to subscriber’s terminal, aggregation switch or IP DSLAM so that high performance switching service can be implemented economically based upon 10/100Mbps link speed. As one of the preparation for the future network enhancement, Premier 3608FG is designed to support IPv6. So it can be easily adapted to IPv6 network environment.Because it can support wire-speed switching function and various services, Premier 3608FG is the most appropriate solution for the medium size networks which generates high traffic volumes. Premier 3608FG also has the advanced network management functions and switching functions that follow world standard.

Premier 3608FG can have eight(8) 10/100base-TX (UTP) ports and two optional modules which can carry either up to two 100Base-FX ports , 1000Base-T or 1000Base-X ports. All ports of Premier 3608FG switch support full duplex communication. Because full duplex communication type allows the both directions of traffic to flow at the same time, the link bandwidth can be effectively extended twice.

Premier 3608FG adopts a high speed non-blocking switch fabric. This chipset makes internal delay as little as possible by processing the arriving packets in parallel manner. And it maximizes data integrity through Store-and-Forward switching method. In other words every packet that arrives at any port will be stored in the buffer of the port and checked up for integrity before transferred to destination port. Therefore it can prevent some data error from being spread over the network.

Premier 3608FG supports IPv6, hardware-based bandwidth management and Quality of Service functionality, which enables corporate users and ISPs to provide differentiated internet services in the environment of next generation network.
