Gigabit PoE+ Managed Switch -8*10/100/1000Tx PoE (240W) + 4*100/1000 SFP Slots


With IP30 industrial case protection, the SMS-8GP4S provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curbside traffic control cabinets. Being able to operate under wide temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the SMS-8GP4S can be placed in almost any difficult environment. The SMS-8GP4S also allows either DIN rail or wall mounting for efficient use of cabinet space.

Redundant Ring, Fast Recovery for Surveillance System

The SMS-8GP4S supports redundant ring technology and features a strong rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced Redundant Ring technology, Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1w RSTP), and redundant power supply system into customers’ industrial automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh factory environments. The SMS-8GP4S also protects customers’ industrial network connectivity with a switching recovery capability that is used for implementing fault-tolerant ring and mesh network architectures. If the Industrial network was interrupted accidentally, the fault recovery times could be less than 50ms to quickly bring the network back to normal operation.

High Power PoE for Security and Public Service Applications

To fulfill the demand of High Power PoE for network applications with Gigabit speed transmission under wide temperatures, the SMS-8GP4S provides 8 10/100/1000Mbps ports featuring IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) that combines up to 240-watt power output and data per port over one Cat.5E/6 Ethernet cable. With a total 240-watt PoE budget on the whole system, the SMS-8GP4S is designed specifically to satisfy the growing demand of higher power-consuming network PDs (powered devices) such as PTZ (Pan, Tilt & Zoom)/Speed Dome network cameras, multi-channel (802.11a/b/g/n) wireless LAN access points and other PoE network devices by providing PoE power, doubling that of the current conventional 802.3af PoE.

Intelligent Alive Check for Powered Device

The SMS-8GP4S PoE Switch can be configured to monitor the connected PD’s status in real-time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the SMS-8GP4S will recycle the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It also greatly enhances the reliability owing that the PoE port will reset the PD power, thus reducing the administrator’s management burden.

PoE Schedule for Energy Saving

Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environmental protection on the Earth, the SMS-8GP4S can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The built-in ‘PoE schedule’ function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and money.

Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 Software VLAN Routing for Secure and Flexible Management

To help customers stay on top of their businesses, the SMS-8GP4S not only provides ultra high transmission performance and excellent Layer 2 technologies, but also IPv4/IPv6 software VLAN routing feature which allows to crossover different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly secured, flexible management and simpler networking application.

Robust Layer 2 Features

The SMS-8GP4S can be programmed for advanced switch management functions such as dynamic port link aggregation, Q-in-Q VLAN, private VLAN, Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, Layer 2 to Layer 4 QoS, bandwidth control and IGMP snooping, MLD v1/v2. The SMS-8GP4S provides 802.1Q-tagged VLAN. Via aggregation of supporting ports, the SMS-8GP4S allows the operation of a high-speed trunk combining multiple ports and supports fail-over as well.

Efficient Management

For efficient management, the SMS-8GP4S Managed Ethernet Switch is equipped with console, Web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in Web-based management interface, the SMS-8GP4S offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. For text-based management, the SMS-8GP4S can be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, it also offers secure remote management via any standard-based management software by supporting an SNMPv3 connection which encrypts the packet content at each session.

Powerful Security

The SMS-8GP4S offers a comprehensive Layer 2 to Layer 4 Access Control List (ACL) for enforcing security to the edge. It can be used to restrict network access by denying packets based on source and destination IP address, TCP/UDP ports or defined typical network applications, and binding devices. Its protection mechanism also comprises 802.1x Port-based and MAC-based user and device authentication. With the private VLAN function, communication between edge ports can be prevented to ensure user privacy. Network administrators can now construct highly-secured corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.

Flexibility and Extension Solution

The two mini-GBIC slots built in the SMS-8GP4S support dual speed, 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) fiber-optic modules, meaning the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver according to not only the transmission distance but also the transmission speed required. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (multi-mode fiber) to 10/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well-suited for applications within enterprise data centers and distributions.

Perfect Integration Solution for Outdoor IP PoE Camera and NVR System

The SMS-8GP4S provides 8 10/100/1000Mbps 802.3at PoE+ ports and can offer sufficient PoE power to 8 PoE IP cameras at the same time. In addition, with the 4 100/1000BASE-X SFP interfaces, the SMS-8GP4S can connect to core fiber switch and send video stream to NVR and monitoring center. Through the high-performance switch architecture, the SMS-8GP4S facilitates the recorded video files from the 8 PoE IP cameras to be saved in the NVR systems. Furthermore, the NVR systems can be controlled and monitored both in the local LAN and the remote site via the Internet. The SMS-8GP4S undoubtedly brings an ideal secure surveillance system at a lower total cost.

Environmentally Hardened Design

AADONA Industrial 8-Port Gigabit 802.3at PoE+ Switch, SMS-8GP4S, is equipped with a rugged IP30 metal case for stable operation in heavy Industrial demanding environments.
