GS24Click to Zoom

GS24 is a fully rugged, fully managed, standalone Gigabit Ethernet switch providing 24 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet ports. Aimed at out-of-the-chassis networking applications such as the networking of multiple subsystems, the GS24 provides IPv6 traffic policing and Quality of Service (QoS) functionality such as guaranteed bandwidth allocation and prioritization.

Connection to the light weight, space-efficient, conduction-cooled GS24 is via the rugged front panel connectors which meet MIL-STD-810F requirements for humidity, salt spray and dust.The front panel allows customization to accommodate varying connector types including optical connectors when the optically expanded varient is used.

Featuring a non-blocking shared memory architecture, all the Gigabit Ethernet ports support both full- and half-duplex operation, providing up to 88 Gb/s full wire speed performance with minimal latency on all 24 ports simultaneously. This switch provides Layer 2/3 switching functionality for routing, switching, QoS and security.
