Storage Temperature: -40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F)

Operating Humidity: 10 to 90% RH

Storage Humidity: 10 to 90% RH (non-condensing)

Spanning Tree: IEEE 802.1d Spanning Tree, IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree, IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree

Link Aggregation: IEEE 802.3ad LACP, up to 4 groups with up to 8 ports per group

VLAN: Port-based and 802.1q tag-based VLANs, Management VLAN, Guest VLAN support, Dynamic VLAN assignment via Radius server with 802.1x client authentication

Number of VLANs Supported: 128 active VLANs (4,096 range)

Auto Voice VLAN: VLAN Voice traffic is automatically assigned by OUI to a voice-specific VLAN and treated with appropriate levels

IGMP Snooping: IGMP (v1/v2/v3) snooping provides for fast client joins and leaves of multicast streams and limits bandwidth-intensive video traffic to only the requestors; supports 256 multicast groups

• DHCP snooping

• IP-MAC binding

• Port security supports limited dynamic lock and locked MAC address

• Management access control

Storm Control: Broadcast, flooding, and multicast

RMON: Embedded remote monitoring (RMON) software agent support for enhanced traffic management, monitoring, and analysis

Management Interface:



Other Management: Telnet (Menu CLI), DHCP client, system log, configuration unload and backup via HTTP or TFTP, PING, dual images, SNTP
