MS4000 L2 Gigabit Switch
The MS4000 series of Gigabit Ethernet L2+ switches are the most advanced in the world. A hybrid network processor (NPU) and switching silicone solution allows the MS4000 to perform functions no other switch in the world is capable of. Why? To give your FTTH-customers the best user experience in the world, and to make your network easier to operate, more reliable and more cost effective.
Features like ingress and egress traffic shaping, quality measurement and control for SLA fulfillment verification, remote mirroring for easier troubleshooting and multi-rate support to facilitate network upgrades make the MS4000 the ultimate access switch for Layer 2 networks.
- The NPU allows optimal allocation of bandwidth between application. By implementing traffic classification and scheduling using features such as Weighted Fair Queuing the MS4000 divides the available bandwitdh fairly between applications. The result is an improved user experience with fewer interruptions and smoother surfing.
- Quality measurement of MPEG multicast streams with the RPM feature provides realtime information about disturbances in delivery of TV. This lets network operations detect problems earlier and pinpoint the cause faster than using traditional probes and reactive response.
- All connectors in the front and support for both 100Mbit/s and 1Gbit/s also in SFP ports makes network migration from Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet easy. The end user equipment does not have to be replaced at the same time as the access switch when performing upgrades, which simplifies logistics and allows the user upgrade to occur when the user actually orders a faster service.
With a standard 19” size and pre-installed brackets, the MS 4000 is designed for placement in central offices, and Telco standard racks (for example, the ETSI 300mm standard chassis). Models available with AC or -48V DC power.
In addition, the updated MS4000 platform now complies with the Swedish 2007 Chemical-tax law that aims to reduce human exposure to hazardous chemicals found in all electronic equipment. Waystreams has minimized the use of such compounds in the MS4000 making it the only access switch in the world to comply with the limits defined in the toughest legislation in the world.
The MS 4000 series is available in the following models:
MS 4326-AC / DC
Uplink: 2 x 10GE (SFP+) ports. Downlink: 24 x 10/100/1000BaseTX (RJ-45) interfaces and 4 x 100/1000BaseX (SFP) combo ports. Side-to-side cooling. All connectors in front.
