Network Security is an absolute requirement for any business and preventing unauthorized access to the company network is business-critical. The SLM224P secures the network through 802.1X port authentication which prompts end-users to provide their username and password before they are permitted to pass data. User access can also be controlled through the SLM224P’s MAC Filtering capability which allows network access only to those devices or workstations that have been authorized as identified by their MAC (Media Access Control) address. Quick, foolproof network expansion – The SLM224P includes features for quickly expanding and growing your network. To substantially increase network throughput speeds, especially useful for companies whose employees are routinely backing up their hard drives to a company server or storage platform, the SLM224P supports Link Aggregation which allows multiple high-bandwidth trunks between switches to be set up. Link Aggregation also provides a level of availability and redundancy as traffic will continue to flow even if one of the network links break.
