S3910 Series Gigabit Ethernet Switches Benefits

Considering users' needs for security, availability, and easy operation, FS S3910 series Gigabit Ethernet switches come with a variety of new features including both software and hardware level.

Sound Security and Reliability for Creating a Safe and Stable Environment

Abundant Security Protections

The S3910 series enterprise switches adopt FSOS that supports a series of security policies and protocols to bring you a safe and stable network.

Administrators can employ S3910 switches' protection policies like anti-DDoS attacks, illegal ARP packets checking, and multiple hardware ACL policies, to build a clean network environment for end-users. Other protections like hardware CPU protection mechanism, NFPP (Network Foundation Protection Policy), DHCP snooping are also available.

All-Round Reliability and Flexibility

S3910 series switches support various IPv4/IPv6 protocols that allow users to build flexible networks according to their customers' needs. Meanwhile, essential protocols to improve network reliability are supported on S3910, such as the spanning-tree protocol (STP), VRRP (Virtual Router Redundant Protocol), RLDP (Rapid Link Detection Protocol), REUP (Rapid Ethernet Uplink Protection Protocol), etc., which enable the Gigabit switch to add link redundancy and provide faster sub-second-level fault recovery in case.

Besides the software-level functions, the S3910 series switches also gain multiple improvements in the hardware design to improve the device reliability and durability.

  • All S3910 series switches are equipped with Broadcom switch chip and have passed the Ixia performance text, which can ensure the stability of network performance.

  • The key parts are enhanced with conformal coating to strengthen device protection and reliability in harsh environments. And the switch ports can stand up to 8kV lightning, which increases the product stability in another point.

  • The hot-swappable power units and redundant power supplies can minimize downtime.

Physical Stacking Technology for Simplied Enterprise Desktop Networks

The four fixed SFP or SFP+ ports of FS S3910 series enterprise switches can be used for physical stacking. All these Gigabit layer 2+ switches support stacking up to 4 units, and the S3910-24TS and S3910-48TS models can be mixedly stacked together, giving more flexibility in network topology design. With all units identified by a simple IP address, the switch stack can be configured and monitored in a simpler way and the network reliability is increased to some extent. For example, it is not a problem to arrange a scheduled outage for an impacting upgrade after-hours.

Easy to Use and Manage for All Users

The S3910 series Gigabit enterprise switches are easy to use and manage, whether you are network switch regular users or first-time users. They support various types of standard management methods such as SNMP (managed by Zabbix), CLI (telnet/console), RMON, SSH, Syslog, NTP/SNTP, FTP, TFTP, and Web GUI to adapt to different users' habits. SNMP (v1/v2c/v3) and RMON enable the switch to be polled for valuable status information and send traps on abnormal events, bringing great convenience for network maintenance.

Go Green with Your Network

The FS S3910 series Gigabit switches come with green and energy-saving features. They add the port auto-power-down function. If the port status is always idle for a period of time, the system will set the port to energy-saving mode automatically. When there is a message to be sent and received, the port will be awakened by the monitoring code stream sent regularly and resume the service.

S3910 Series Gigabit Switches Applications

With an extensive suite of security features, routing protocols, diverse enterprise-level management functions, and innovative hardware design, the S3910 series Gigabit enterprise switches can fully meet the needs of the aggregation layer in various medium and large-scale networks, and can work as the core switch in some small networks. The common application areas include:

  • Gigabit access in the LAN of large campus networks such as government buildings, universities, large enterprises, manufacturing, etc.

  • Gigabit access in business networks such as medical care, libraries, conference centers, and exhibition halls.

Scenario 1: Deployed in the Core and Access Layer

In the following network topology, the S3910-24TS or S3910-48TS Gigabit switches can work as the core switch. Their 10G SFP+ uplinks provide high bandwidth for congestion relief and smooth data delivery. And they can be stacked to simplify network management and improve the whole network stability. The S3910-24TF 24-port Gigabit RJ45 switches can be used as access switches to accommodate various end devices.
