Introduction

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) eliminates the need to run power to other devices on a wired LAN. Using Power-over-Ethernet systems installers needs to run only a single Category 5 Ethernet cable that carries both power and data to each device. This allows for greater flexibility in the location of network devices and significantly decreasing installation costs in many cases.

There are two system components in PoE—the Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) initiates the connection to the second component, and the Powered Device (PD). The current is transmitted over two of the four twisted pairs of wires in a Category-5 cable.

Power over Ethernet follows the IEEE 802.3af and is completely compatible with existing Ethernet switches and networked devices. Because the Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) tests whether a networked device is PoE-capable, power is never transmitted unless a Powered Device is at other end of the cable. It also continues to monitor the channel. If the Powered Device does not draw a minimum current, because it has been unplugged or physically turned off, the PSE shuts down the power to that port. Optionally, the standard permits Powered Devices to signal to the PSEs exactly how much power they need.

The 8 10/100TX + 2 Gigabit copper/Mini-GBIC Combo with 8 PoE Injectors Managed Switch and the 8 10/100TX + 1 10/100/1000T/100/1000 SFP Combo with 4 PoE Injectors Managed Switch are the multi-port switches that can be used to build high-performance switched workgroup networks. Both switches are a store-and-forward device that offers low latency for high-speed networking. It also features a “store-and-forward “switching scheme. This allows the switch to auto-learn and store source address in an 8K-entry MAC address table. The switch is targeted at workgroup, department or backbone computing environment.

Frequency of 50-60Hz, or work with DC 48V which is the redundant power supply for the

switch.

Desktop Installation

Set the switch on a sufficiently large flat space with a power outlet nearby. The surface where you put the switch should be clean, smooth, level and sturdy. Make sure there is enough clearance around the switch to allow attachment of cables, power cord and allow air circulation.

Attaching Rubber Pads

A.Make sure mounting surface on the bottom of the switch is grease and dust free.

B.Remove adhesive backing from your Rubber Pads.

C.Apply the Rubber Pads to each corner on the bottom of the switch. These footpads can prevent the switch from shock/vibration.

Power On

Connect the power cord to the power socket on the rear panel of the switch. The other side of power cord connects to the power outlet. The internal power supply of the switch works with voltage range of AC in the 100-240VAC/ Frequency of 50~60Hz, or the redundant power of DC 48V for 8 10/100TX + 2 Gigabit copper/Mini-GBIC Combo with 8 PoE Injectors Managed Switch. Check the power indicator on the front panel to see if power is properly supplied.

Network Application

This section provides a few samples of network topology in which the switch is used. In general, the PoE Injector Managed Switch is designed as a segment switch which has large address table (8k MAC addresses) and high performance to deal with interconnecting networking segments.

PC, workstations, and servers can communicate each other by directly connecting with PoE injector Managed Switch. The switch automatically learns nodes addresses, which are subsequently used to filter and forward all traffic based on the destination address.

Using the uplink port (Giga Combo port), the switch can connect with another switch or hub to interconnect other small-switched workgroups to form a larger switched network. Meanwhile, user can also use fiber ports to connect switches. The PoE switch also injects power into the UTP cables for supplying the power that PDs (Power Devices) need.

The Power over Ethernet Switch can provide power to PDs that follow the IEEE 802.3af standard in the network. It can solve the problem of position limitation. The network devices can be installed in more appropriate position for better performance. The following figure is an example of network application for Power over Ethernet Switch.

Small Workgroup

The PoE Injector Managed Switch can be used as a standalone switch to which personal computers, server, printer server, are directly connected to form a small workgroup.

15

Segment Bridge

For enterprise networks where large data broadcasts are constantly processed, this switch is an ideal solution for department users to connect to the corporate backbone.

In the illustration below, two Ethernet switches with PCs, print server, and local server attached, are both connected to the switch. All the devices in this network can communicate with each other through the switch. Connecting servers to the switch allows other users to access the data on server.

Console Management

Login in the Console Interface

When the connection between switch and PC is ready, turn on the PC and run a terminal emulation program or Hyper Terminal and configure its communication parameters to match the following default characteristics of the console port:

Baud Rate: 9600 bps

Data Bits: 8

Parity: none

Stop Bit: 1

Flow control: None

The settings of communication parameters

After finishing the parameter settings, click “OK“. When the blank screen shows up, press Enter key to bring out the login prompt. Key in the ‘root’ (default value) for both User name and Password (use Enter key to toggle), then hit Enter key and the console management appears right after. Please see the figure below for login screen.

Web-Based Management

This section introduces the configuration and functions of the Web-Based management.

About Web-based Management

On the CPU board of the switch there is an embedded HTML web site residing in flash memory, which offers advanced management features and allow users to manage the switch from anywhere on the network through a standard browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.

The Web-Based Management supports Internet Explorer 6.0. And, it is applied with Java Applets for reducing network bandwidth consumption, enhance access speed and present an easy viewing screen.

Preparing for Web Management

Before using web management, user can use console to login the switch to check the default IP of the switch. Please refer to Console Management Chapter for console login. If user needs to change IP address for the first time, user can use console mode to modify it. The default value is as below:

IP Address: 192.168.1.77

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway: 192.168.1.254

User Name: root Password: root

System Login

Launch the Internet Explorer.

46

Key in “http://” + “IP Address” of the Switch, and then press “Enter”

Login screen will appear right after

Key in the user name and password. The default user name and password is “root”

Click “Enter” or” OK”, then the home screen of the Web-based management appears right after

Note: The web interface features shown below are introduced by the screen displays of 8 10/100 TX + 2 10/100/1000T/Mini-GBIC Combo (MIL-SM8TXAF2GPA) model. Unless specifically identified, the all of the screen displays are suitable for the models in this manual.

IP Configuration interface

DHCP Configuration

DHCP is the abbreviation of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol that is a protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network. With dynamic addressing, a device can have a different IP address every time it connects to the network. In some systems, the device's IP address can even change while it is still connected. DHCP also supports a mix of static and dynamic IP addresses. Dynamic addressing simplifies network administration because the software keeps track of IP addresses rather than requiring an administrator to manage the task. This means that a new computer can be added to a network without the hassle of manually assigning it a unique IP address.

49

DHCP Server Configuration

The system provides the DHCP server function. Enable the DHCP server function, the

switch system will be a DHCP server.

DHCP Server: Enable or Disable the DHCP Server function. Enable—the switch will be the DHCP server on your local network

Low IP Address: The dynamic IP range. Low IP address is the beginning of the dynamic IP range. For example: dynamic IP range is from 192.168.1.100 ~ 192.168.1.200. In contrast, 192.168.1.100 is the Low IP address

High IP Address: The dynamic IP range. High IP address is the end of the dynamic IP range. For example: dynamic IP range is from 192.168.1.100 ~ 192.168.1.200. In comparison, 192.168.1.200 is the High IP address

Subnet Mask: The dynamic IP assign range subnet mask

Gateway: The gateway in your network

DNS: The IP Address of the Domain Name Server in your network

Lease Time (sec): It is the time period that system will reset the dynamic IP assignment to ensure the dynamic IP will not been occupied for a long time or the server doesn’t know that the dynamic IP is idle

Port Trunk

The Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) provides a standardized means for exchanging information between Partner Systems on a link to allow their Link Aggregation Control instances to reach agreement on the identity of the Link Aggregation Group to which the link belongs, move the link to that Link Aggregation Group, and enable its transmission and reception functions in an orderly manner. Link aggregation lets you group up to 4 ports into one dedicated connection. This feature can expand bandwidth to a device on the network. LACP operation requires full-duplex mode, for more detail information please refer to IEEE 802.3ad.

Port Trunk - Aggregator setting

1.System Priority: A value used to identify the active LACP. The switch with the lowest value has the highest priority and is selected as the active LACP.

2.Group ID: There are four trunk groups to provide configuration. Choose the "Group ID" and click Select .

3.LACP: If enable, the group is LACP static trunk group. If disable, the group is local static trunk group. All ports support LACP dynamic trunk group. While connecting to the device that also supports LACP, the LACP dynamic trunk group will be created automatically.

4.Work ports: Allow up to four ports to be aggregated at the same time. With LACP static trunk group, the exceed ports are standby and can be aggregated later if work ports fail. If it is local static trunk group, the number of ports must be the same as the group member ports.

5. Select the ports to join the trunk group. Click

Add

button to add the port. To

remove unwanted ports, select the port and click

Port Trunk - State Activity

When you had setup the LACP aggregator, you can configure port state activity. You can mark or un-mark the port. When you mark the port and click Apply button the port state activity will change to Active. Opposite is Passive.

Active: The port automatically sends LACP protocol packets.

Passive: The port does not automatically send LACP protocol packets, and responds only if it receives LACP protocol packets from the opposite device.

Note 1. A link has either two active LACP ports or one active port can perform

dynamic LACP trunk.

2.A link has two passive LACP ports will not perform dynamic LACP trunk because both ports are waiting for an LACP protocol packet from the opposite device.

3.If you are active LACP’s actor, after you have selected trunk port, the active status will be created automatically.

67

Port Trunk – State Activity interface

Port Mirroring

The Port mirroring is a method for monitor traffic in switched networks. Traffic through ports can be monitored via one specific port. That means traffic goes in or out monitored (source) ports will be duplicated into mirror (destination) port.

Destination Port: You can select one port to be the destination (mirror) port for monitoring both RX and TX traffic which come from source port. Or, use one of two ports for monitoring RX traffic only and the other one for TX traffic only. User can connect mirror port to LAN analyzer or Netxray

Source Port: The ports that user wants to monitor. All monitored port traffic will be copied to mirror (destination) port. User can select multiple source ports by checking the RX or TX check boxes to be monitored.

 

And then, click

Apply

button.

68

Rate Limiting

You can set up every port’s bandwidth rate and frame limitation type.

Ingress Limit Frame type: Select the frame type you want to filter. The frame types have 4 options for selecting: All, Broadcast/Multicast/Flooded Unicast, Broadcast/Multicast and Broadcast only.

Broadcast/Multicast/Flooded Unicast, Broadcast/Multicast and Bbroadcast only types are only for ingress frames. The egress rate only supports All type.

69

Rate Limiting interface

All the ports support port ingress and egress rate control. For example, assume port 1 is 10Mbps, users can set it’s effective egress rate as 1Mbps, ingress rate as 500Kbps. The switch performs the ingress rate by packet counter to meet the specified rate

Ingress: Enter the port effective ingress rate (The default value is ‘0’)

Egress: Enter the port effective egress rate (The default value is ‘0’)

 

And then, click

Apply

VLAN configuration

A Virtual LAN (VLAN) is a logical network grouping that limits the broadcast domain, which would allow you to isolate network traffic, so only the members of the same VLAN will receive traffic from each other. Basically, creating a VLAN from a switch is logically equivalent of reconnecting a group of network devices to another Layer 2 switch.

70

However, all the network devices are still plugged into the same switch physically.

The switch supports port-based and 802.1Q (tagged-based) VLAN. The default configuration of VLAN operation mode is ‘Disable’.

VLAN Configuration interface

VLAN configuration - Port-based VLAN

Packets can go among only members of the same VLAN group. Note all unselected ports are treated as belonging to another single VLAN. If the port-based VLAN enabled, the VLAN-tagging is ignored.

In order for an end station to send packets to different VLAN groups, it itself has to be either capable of tagging packets it sends with VLAN tags or attached to a VLAN-aware bridge that is capable of classifying and tagging the packet with different VLAN ID based on not only default PVID but also other information about the packet, such as the protocol.

802.1Q VLAN

Tagged-based VLAN is an IEEE 802.1Q specification standard. Therefore, it is possible to create a VLAN across devices from different switch venders. IEEE 802.1Q VLAN uses a technique to insert a “tag” into the Ethernet frames. Tag contains a VLAN Identifier (VID) that indicates the VLAN numbers.

You can create Tag-based VLAN, and enable or disable GVRP protocol. There are 256 VLAN groups to provide configuring. Enable 802.1Q VLAN, the all ports on the switch belong to default VLAN, VID is 1. The default VLAN can’t be deleted.

GVRP allows automatic VLAN configuration between the switch and nodes. If the switch is connected to a device with GVRP enabled, you can send a GVRP request using the VID of a VLAN defined on the switch; the switch will automatically add that device to the existing VLAN.

Rapid Spanning Tree

The Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) is an evolution of the Spanning Tree Protocol and provides for faster spanning tree convergence after a topology change. The system also supports STP and the system will automatically detect the connected device that is running STP or RSTP protocol.

RSTP - System Configuration

 

User can view spanning tree information about the Root Bridge

 

User can modify RSTP state. After modification, click

Apply

button

RSTP mode: User must enable or disable RSTP function before configuring the related parameters

Priority (0-61440): A value used to identify the root bridge. The bridge with the lowest value has the highest priority and is selected as the root. If the value changes, user must reboot the switch. The value must be multiple of 4096 according to the protocol standard rule

77

Max Age (6-40): The number of seconds a bridge waits without receiving Spanning-tree Protocol configuration messages before attempting a reconfiguration. Enter a value between 6 through 40

Hello Time (1-10): The time that controls switch sends out the BPDU packet to check RSTP current status. Enter a value between 1 through 10

Forward Delay Time (4-30): The number of seconds a port waits before changing from its Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol learning and listening STP states to the forwarding state. Enter a value between 4 through 30

Note Follow the rule to configure the MAX Age, Hello Time, and Forward Delay

Time.

1.Select the port in Port column.

2.Path Cost: The cost of the path to the other bridge from this transmitting bridge at the specified port. Enter a number 1 through 200000000.

3.Priority: Decide which port should be blocked by priority in LAN. Enter a number 0 through 240. The value of priority must be the multiple of 16.

4.P2P: Some of the rapid state transactions that are possible within RSTP are dependent upon whether the port concerned can only be connected to exactly one other bridge (i.e. it is served by a point-to-point LAN segment), or can be connected to two or more bridges (i.e. it is served by a shared medium LAN segment). This function allows the P2P status of the link to be manipulated administratively. True is P2P enabling. False is P2P disabling.

5.Edge: The port directly connected to end stations cannot create bridging loop in the network. To configure the port as an edge port, set the port to “True” status.

6.Non STP: The state of whether the port includes the STP mathematic calculation. True is not including STP mathematic calculation. False is including the STP mathematic calculation.

QoS Configuration

You can configure QoS policy and priority setting, per port priority setting, COS and TOS setting.

QoS Policy and Priority Type

Qos Policy: select the QoS policy rule.

Using the 8,4,2,1 weight fair queue scheme: The switch will follow 8:4:2:1 rate to process priority queue from High to lowest queue. For example, when the system processes, 1 frame of the lowest queue, 2 frames of the low queue, 4 frames of the middle queue, and 8 frames of the high queue will be processed at the same time in accordance with the 8,4,2,1 policy rule.

Use the strict priority scheme: Always higher queue will be process first, except higher queue is empty.

Priority Type: There are 5 priority type selections available. Disable means no priority type is selected.

Port-base: The port priority will follow the Port-base that you have assigned – High, middle, low, or lowest.

COS only: The port priority will only follow the COS priority that you have assigned.

TOS only: The port priority will only follow the TOS priority that you have assigned.

COS first: The port priority will follow the COS priority first, and then other priority rule.

TOS first: the port priority will follow the TOS priority first, and the other priority

86

rule.

Port Base Priority

Configure per port priority level.

Port: Each port has 4 priority levels – High, Middle, Low, and Lowest.

Click Apply .

COS Configuration

Set up the COS priority level.

COS priority: Set up the COS priority level 0~7 –High, Middle, Low, Lowest.

Click Apply .

TOS Configuration

Set up the TOS priority.

TOS priority: The system provides 0~63 TOS priority level. Each level has 4 types of priority – high, middle, low, and lowest. The default value is ‘Lowest’ priority for each level. When the IP packet is received, the system will check the TOS level value in the IP packet that has received. For example, user set the TOS level 25 as high, the system will check the TOS value of the received IP packet. If the TOS value of received IP packet is 25 (priority = high), and then the packet priority will have highest priority.

Click Apply .

IGMP Configuration

The Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is an internal protocol of the Internet Protocol (IP) suite. IP manages multicast traffic by using switches, routers, and hosts

88

that support IGMP. Enabling IGMP allows the ports to detect IGMP queries and report packets and manage IP multicast traffic through the switch. IGMP have three fundamental types of message as follows:

Message

 

Description

 

 

 

A message sent from the querier (IGMP router or switch) Query asking for a response from each host belonging to the

multicast group.

A message sent by a host to the querier to indicate that the

Report host wants to be or is a member of a given group indicated in the report message.

Leave

A message sent by a host to the querier to indicate that the

 

Group

host has quit being a member of a specific multicast group.

 

The switch supports IP multicast. You can enable IGMP protocol via setting IGMP configuration page to see the IGMP snooping information. IP multicast addresses are in the range of 224.0.0.0 through 239.255.255.255.

IGMP Protocol: Enable or disable the IGMP protocol.

IGMP Query: Select the IGMP query function as Enable or Auto to set the switch as a querier for IGMP version 2 multicast networks.

Click Apply .

X-Ring

X-Ring provides a faster redundant recovery than Spanning Tree topology. The action is similar to STP or RSTP, but the algorithms not the same.

In the X-Ring topology, every switch should enable X-Ring function and assign two member ports in the ring. Only one switch in the X-Ring group would be set as a master switch that would be blocked, called backup port, and another port is called working port. Other switches in the X-Ring group are called working switches and their two member ports are called working ports. When the failure of network connection occurs, the backup port will automatically become a working port to recovery the failure.

The switch supports the function and interface for setting the switch as the ring master or slave mode. The ring master can negotiate and place command to other switches in the X-Ring group. If there are 2 or more switches in master mode, then software will select the switch with lowest MAC address number as the ring master. The X-Ring master ring mode will be enabled by the X-Ring configuration interface. Also, user can identify the switch as the ring master from the R.M. LED panel of the LED panel on the switch.

The system also supports the coupling ring that can connect 2 or more X-Ring group for the redundant backup function and dual homing function that prevent connection lose between X-Ring group and upper level/core switch.

Enable X-Ring: Enable the X-Ring function. Mark the check box to enable the X-Ring function.

Enable Ring Master: Mark the check box to enable this machine to be the ring master.

1st & 2nd Ring Ports: Pull down the selection menu to assign two ports as the member ports. The 1st Ring Port and 2nd Ring Port are basically assigned to be forwarding ports except for the Ring Master switch. With the Ring Master switch, one of its two Ring Ports is the blocking port and another one is the forwarding port.

91

Once its forwarding port fails, the system will automatically upgrade its blocking port

to be the forwarding port of the Ring Master switch.

Enable Coupling Ring: Enable the coupling ring function. Mark the check box to enable the coupling ring function.

Coupling port: Assign the member port which is connected to the other ring group.

Control port: When Couple Ring check box is marked, you have to assign the control port to form a couple-ring group between the two X-rings.

Enable Dual Homing: Set up one of the ports on the switch to be the Dual Homing port. For a switch, there is only one Dual Homing port. Dual Homing function only works when the X-Ring function enabled.

 

And then, click

Apply

to apply the configuration.

X-ring Interface

Note When the X-Ring function enable, user must disable the RSTP. The X-Ring function and RSTP function cannot exist in a switch at the same time. Remember to execute the ‘Save Configuration’ action, otherwise the new configuration will lose when switch power off.

Security

In this section, you can configure 802.1x and MAC address table.

802.1X/Radius Configuration

802.1x is an IEEE authentication specification prevents the client from connecting to a wireless access point or wired switch until it provides authority, like the user name and password that are verified by an authentication server.

System Configuration

After enabling the IEEE 802.1X function, you can configure the parameters of this function.

1.IEEE 802.1x Protocol: Enable or disable 802.1x protocol.

2.Radius Server IP: Set the Radius Server IP address.

3.Server Port: Set the UDP destination port for authentication requests to the specified Radius Server.

4.Accounting Port: Set the UDP destination port for accounting requests to the specified Radius Server.

5.Shared Key: Set an encryption key for using during authentication sessions with the specified radius server. This key must match the encryption key used on the Radius Server.

6.NAS, Identifier: Set the identifier for the radius client.

7.Click Apply .
