In keeping with our commitment to environmentally friendly processes and products, the 8100S Series is designed to be green from the ground up, with reduced power consumption and minimal hazardous waste. The use of highly recyclable metal, combination of green production processes, earth friendly packaging, high efficiency power supplies and effective power management deliver both cost savings and a reduced carbon footprint to the user. Access Control Lists work as filters that can enable inspection and classification of incoming data. Specific actions can then be performed on these defined data frames to more effectively manage the network traffic at Layer 2 through Layer 4. ACLs are typically used as security mechanism, either permitting or denying entry for packets on specific switch ports. In order to fully understand the performance of the network and ensure the ongoing smooth delivery of critical data, users must be able to measure and analyze the traffic in real time. The 8100S Series facilitates effective traffic monitoring with sFlow, an industry standard technology for monitoring high speed switched networks gives complete visibility into the use of the network enabling performance optimization, accounting, billing for usage, and even defense against security threats. In addition to the secure fiber connectivity, the 8100S Series guarantees protection and secure management of administrator's network by providing strong security standards and authentication mechanism for access at the edge of a network. IEEE 802.1x Port Authentication methods such as PEAP, EAP-TLS and EAP-TTLS supported by the 8100S Series allows a network controller to restrict external devices from gaining unauthenticated access in to the network. The Multiple Supplicant Authentication enables the switch to uniquely authenticate and apply the appropriate policies and VLAN for multiple users or devices on a shared port, allowing port expansion while keeping the network secure. The 8100S Series supports both Gigabit and Fast Ethernet Small Form- Factor Pluggable (SFP) uplinks. The dual speed ports make this series ideal for environments where Gigabit fiber switches will be phased in over time. The 8100S Series allows for connectivity to the legacy 100FX hardware until the uplink device is upgraded to Gigabit. The switch provides static IPv4 routing at the edge of the network as well as support for RIPv1 and RIPv2.
