Introduction

Introduction

Thank you for choosing the Linksys 24/48-Port10/100 +4-PortGigabit Smart Switch with Resilient Clustering Technology and PoE.

These switches allow you to expand your network securely. User control is secured using 802.1x security using a RADIUS authentication mechanism and can also be controlled using MAC filtering.

For Wireless or VoIP deployments, the SLM224G4PS and SLM248G4PS Switches support the IEEE802.3af standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE), allowing you to attach PoEenabled devices to your network. These devices need no additional power cables or nearby power outlets, resulting in simpler and less expensive installation. PoE support also allows devices like cameras and Wireless Access Points to be positioned in optimal locations, such as in ceilings and walls—evenoutdoors.

Extensive QoS features makes the solution ideal for realtime applications like Voice and Video. The four priority queues together with the Weighted Round Robin and Strict Priority scheduling techniques facilitate efficient co-existenceofreal-timetraffic with data traffic allowing them each to meet their QoS needs. Individual users or applications can be prioritized above others using various Class of Serviceoptions—byport, Layer 2 priority (802.1p), and Layer 3 priority (TOS or DSCP). Intelligent Broadcast and Multicast storm control minimize and contain the effects of these types of traffic on regular traffic. IGMP Snooping limitsbandwidth-intensivevideo traffic to only the requestors without flooding to all users. Incoming traffic can be policed and outgoing traffic can be shaped allowing you to control network access and traffic flow.

There are features that allow you to expand and grow your network of switches. Link aggregation allows multiple high-bandwidthtrunks between switches to be set up. This also provides a level of reliability in that the system continues to operate if one of the links breaks. Spanning Tree (STP) and Fast Link allow you to build a mesh of switches increasing the availibility of the system.

The rich management functionality of the Smart Switches with Resilient Clustering Technology includes SNMP, RMON, Telnet, and HTTP Management options, allowing you to flexibly integrate and manage these devices in your network.

NOTE: Throughout this User Guide, the termreset refers to cycling the power to the Switch; that is, powering the Switch off, then on again.

Product Overview

SLM248G4PS

Front Panel

The Switch LEDs and ports are located on the front panel.

Front Panel of the SLM248G4PS

System  (Green/Amber)  Lights up green to indicate that the Switch is powered on.

Lights up amber while the Switch is performing a system self-test.Blinks amber if theself-testfails.

LINK/ACT (1-12,25-36) (Green/Amber) Lights up green to indicate a functional 10/100 Mbps networklinkthroughthecorrespondingportwith an attached device that does not support Power over Ethernet (PoE). Lights up amber to indicate a functional 10/100 Mbps network link through the corresponding port with an attached PoE device. Blinks green while the Switch is actively sending or receiving data over that port.

LINK/ACT (13-24,37-48) (Green) Lights up to indicate a functional 10/100 Mbps network link through the corresponding port with an attached device. Blinks while the Switch is actively sending or receiving data over that port.

G1-G4  (Green/Amber) Blinks green when the Switch is actively sending or receiving data at 10/100 Mbps over the corresponding port (G1 through G4). Blinks yellow when the Switch is actively sending or receiving data at 1000 Gbps over the corresponding port (G1 through G4).

Stack (G1-G4)  (Amber)  Lights up to indicate that the corresponding port (G1 through G4) is linked to another switch. (Two of these LEDs will be lit if switch stacking is properly configured.)

Ethernet 1-48  The Switch is equipped with 48auto-sensing,Ethernet network ports, which useRJ-45connectors. The Fast Ethernet ports support network speeds of 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. They can operate in halfandfull-duplexmodes.Auto-sensingtechnology enables each port to automatically detect the speed of the device connected to it (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps), and adjust its speed and duplex accordingly.

Product Overview

G1-G4  The Switch is equipped with 4 autosensing Gigabit Ethernet network ports, which useRJ-45connectors. The Gigabit Ethernet ports support network speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps. They can operate in halfandfull-duplexmodes.Auto-sensingtechnology enables each port to automatically detect the speed of the device connected to it (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps), and adjust its speed and duplex accordingly.

miniGBIC (1-2)  The miniGBIC (gigabit interface converter) port is a connection point for a miniGBIC expansion module, so the Switch can be uplinked via fiber to another switch. The MiniGBIC port provides a link to ahigh-speednetwork segment or individual workstation at speeds of up to 1000 Mbps.

To establish a Gigabit Ethernet connection using a miniGBIC port, you will need to install a MGBT1, MGBSX1, or MGBLH1 Gigabit expansion module and use Category 5e cabling or fiber optic cabling.

To establish a Fast Ethernet connection using a miniGBIC port, you will need to install a MFEFX1 (100BASE-FX)or MFELX1(100BASE-LX)100SFP Transceiver and use fiber optic cabling.

Stack ID  Displays the Switch’s unit ID number if the Switch is in stack mode.

Stack Master  (Amber) Lights up if the switch is the stack Master during stack mode.

NOTE:On the SLM248G4PS, MiniGBIC ports are shared with Gigabit Ethernet ports. If a miniGBIC port is used, then the shared Gigabit Ethernet port on the Switch cannot be used. The following table defines the shared port mapping of the SLM248G4PS Switch.
