The IFS Industrial Gigabit Managed Switch Series supports advanced features including IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, GVRP, port link aggregation, QoS, broadcast storm control and MAC address filtering. The series also includes IGMP snooping and querying multicasting for media operations and bandwidth utilization to fit a variety of applications. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the series allows the operation of high-speed trunk operation combining multiple ports. A maximum of four ports can be assigned for four trunk groups and support fail-over as well. Additionally, its standards-compliant implementation ensures interoperability with equipment from other vendors.
