The WS-2864PVR provides IPv6/IPv4 dual stack management and built-in L2/L4 Gigabit Switching engine along with 24 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring up to 36-watt 802.3at PoE+, and 4 extra 10 Gigabit BASE-X SFP+ fiber slots. This is definitely the best network solution for a quick, safe and cost-effective AP control with Power over Ethernet for enterprises.


Five Steps to Manage AP Cluster within Minutes

The WS-2864PVR offers a user-friendly Web GUI for easy configuration. It features centralized management of PLANET Smart AP series without needing to manually configure each AP for the wireless SSID, radio band and security settings. With a five-step configuration process, different purposes of wireless profiles can be simultaneously delivered to multiple APs or AP groups to minimize deployment time, effort and cost.


Optimizing Wi-Fi Deployment with Floor Maps

Importing your floor maps and locating each AP or AP group according to the field deployment can save your time and cost of on-site support and monitoring. It shows real-time AP status, and its signal heat map is capable of reflecting the actual coverage and helps the administrator to fine-tune the overlapping of the adjacent APs anytime to optimize the wireless network performance.


Maximal Scalability and Compatibility with Various Smart APs

To fulfill various business needs, the WS-2864PVR provides a maximum scalability and is compatible with over 10 models of Smart APs from indoor to outdoor series including ceiling-mount, wall-mount, in-wall, industrial, single-band, dual-band and high-power access points which are able to adapt to different environments.


Smart and Intuitive LCD Control

The intuitive touch panel of the WS-2864PVR with PLANET unique Smart LCD design greatly facilitates the Ethernet PoE PD management of large-scale networks of enterprises, hotels, shopping malls, government buildings and other public areas. With the configurable LCD control, the administrator performs IP configurations, PoE, hardware management, system status monitoring and basic diagnostic test without logging on to the web interface, thus making the management of the system more efficient.


10Gbps Ethernet Uplink for High-volume Transmission

The WS-2864PVR provides greater bandwidth and powerful processing capacity. The WS-2864PVR offers a maximum 40Gbps uplink bandwidth through the four 10Gbps SFP+ ports. In addition, the administrator can flexibly choose the suitable SFP/SFP+ transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently.


Unique PoE Management Features

The WS-2864PVR has a built-in L2/L4 Gigabit Switching engine and 24 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring 36-watt 802.3at PoE+, with a total power budget of up to 400W for different kinds of PoE applications. It perfectly meets the power requirements of PoE Wi-Fi access points including dual-band or outdoor high-power AP/CPE with high power consumption. As a managed PoE switch for stable and reliable wireless AP operation, the WS-2864PVR features the following intelligent PoE management functions:

 ■ PD alive check

 ■ Scheduled power recycling

 ■ PoE schedule

 ■ PoE usage monitoring


Layer 3 Routing Support

The WS-2864PVR enables the administrator to conveniently boost network efficiency by configuring Layer 3 IPv4/IPv6 VLAN static routing manually, and the OSPFv2 (Open Shortest Path First) settings automatically. The OSPF is an interior dynamic routing protocol for autonomous system based on link state. The protocol creates a database for link state by exchanging link states among Layer 3 switches, and then uses the Shortest Path First algorithm to generate a route table based on that database.


IPv4/IPv6 Dual Stack Management Network

The WS-2864PVR offers IPv4/IPv6 VLAN routing feature which allows to crossover different VLANs and different IP addresses for the purpose of having a highly-secure, flexible management and simpler networking application. With the support for IPv6/IPv4 protocol, and user-friendly management interfaces, the WS-2864PVR is the best choice for system integrators to migrate network infrastructure from the IPv4 to the IPv6 network. It also helps SMBs to step in the IPv6 era with the lowest investment and without having to replace the network facilities even though ISPs establish the IPv6 FTTx edge network.


Optimal Redundant Ring for Faster Recovery of Managed Network

The WS-2864PVR supports redundant ring technology and features strong, rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates advanced ITU-T G.8032 ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching) technology, and Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1w RSTP) into customer’s network to enhance system reliability and uptime in harsh environments. In a certain simple ring network, the recovery time could be less than 50ms to quickly bring the network back, thus enabling the management network to keep on operating.


User-friendly Secure Management

For efficient management, the WS-2864PVR is equipped with console, web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the WS-2864PVR offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The WS-2864PVR supports SNMP and it can be managed via PLANET centralized network management suite or any management software based on the standard SNMP v1 and v2 protocols. For reducing product learning time, the WS-2864PVR offers Cisco-like command via Telnet or console port and customer doesn’t need to learn new command from these switches. Moreover, the WS-2864PVR offers remote secure management by supporting SSHSSL and SNMPv3 connection which can encrypt the packet content at each session.


Cybersecurity Network Solution to Minimize Security Risks

The cybersecurity feature included to protect the switch management in a mission-critical network virtually needs no effort and cost to install. Both SSH and SSL protocols are utilized to provide strong protection against advanced threats. The network administrator can now construct highly-secure corporate networks with considerably less time and effort than before.
