PLANET develops smallest managed Gigabit switch in the industry

PLANET has expanded its desktop switch product offering with the handheld GSD-1002M switch that is specially designed to build a reliable full Gigabit backbone to transmit and forward data to remote network through fiber optic. It provides 8-port 10/100/1000Base-T copper and 2 extra 100/1000Base-X SFP fiber optic interfaces with dual power system, 802.3af/at PoE and 12V DC.

The GSD-1002M provides high-performance edge service and plug-and-play design for FTTD (Fiber to the Desktop) solutions. FTTD service is fiber optic cabling with reliable and expandable, lower-cost wiring architectures, and long distance capability. The GSD-1002M supports dual-speed, 100Base-FX and 1000Base-SX/LX SFP (small form-factor pluggable) fiber-optic modules to connect fiber access point, with high flexibility to be installed in communication closet or major computer room for SMBs. The GSD-1002M supports free configuration and free grounding, and provides high-performance edge service. To build the network infrastructure with an easily and quickly installed option, it can decrease attenuation and crosstalk issues for zero-loss data transfer. 

PlanetGSD-2In addition to supporting 20Gbps switch fabric to handle extremely large amounts of video, voice and important data in a secure topology, the user-friendly GSD-1002M desktop switch provides an advanced IPv6 / IPv4 management interface that can work with the original network structure. The switch offers advanced Layer 2 to Layer 4 data switching and quality of service (QoS) traffic control, access control list, network access control and authentication, and secure management features to protect building automation network connectivity with reliable switching recovery capability that is suitable for implementing fault tolerant and mesh network architectures.

The GSD-1002M features strong rapid self-recovery capability to prevent interruptions and external intrusions. It incorporates Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s MSTP), auto loop protection and dual power input system (PoE In + 12V DC) into customer’s automation network to enhance system reliability and uptime.

The GSD-1002M switch is well-suited for businesses and SOHOs expanding or upgrading their network infrastructure.
