Various Port Types and Flexible Port Expansion
The S5300 supports 2*10G subcard and each contains one or two 10G SFP+ ports. The users can flexibly adopt 1~4*10G ports expansion. The series also provides multiple gigabit ports (24 or 48 Base-T ports and Base-X ports), it can be used as an access or aggregation switch on campus networks or an access switch in data centers.
Comprehensive QoS policies and security mechanisms
The S5300 supports strict ARP learning, which prevents ARP spoofing attacks that exhaust ARP entries,The S5300 also provides IP source guard to prevent DoS attacks caused by MAC address spoofing, IP address spoofing, and MAC/IP spoofing.
The S5300 supports DHCP snooping, which generates user binding entries based on users' access interfaces, MAC addresses, IP addresses, IP address leases, and VLAN IDs. DHCP snooping discards invalid packets that do not match any binding entries, such as ARP spoofing packets and IP spoofing packets.This prevents hackers from using ARP packets to initiate man-in-the-middle attacks on campus networks.The interface connected to a DHCP server can be configured as a trusted interface to protect the system against bogus DHCP server attacks.
Comprehensive reliability mechanisms
Besides STP,RSTP, and MSTP, the S5300 supports enhanced Ethernet reliability technologies such as Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS), also referred to as G.8032. As the latest ring network protocol, ERPS was developed based on traditional Ethernet MAC and bridging functions and uses mature Ethernet OAM function and a ring automatic protection switching (R-APS) mechanism to implement millisecond-level protection switching. ERPS supports various services and allows flexible networking, helping customers build a network with lower OPEX and CAPEX.
Powerful support for services
The S5300 supports IGMP v1/v2/v3 snooping, IGMP filter, IGMP fast leave, and IGMP proxy. The S5300 supports wire-speed replication of multicast packets between VLANs, multicast load balancing among member interfaces of a trunk, and controllable multicast, meeting requirements for IPTV and other multicast services.
Easy deployment and maintenance free
Supports SNMP v1/v2/v3 and provides flexible methods for managing devices. Users can manage the S5300 using the CLI and Web NMS. Supports SSH2.0 and other encryption, which makes management much more secured.
Supports LLDP protocol for simpler management.
