Advanced Security Features

The IE-4000-8S4G-E Cisco 12 Ports Managed Switch is a high-performance industrial Ethernet switch designed for use in harsh industrial environments. It features advanced security features such as:

  • Access Control Lists (ACLs): Allows for the creation of rules to control access to the network, based on the source and destination IP addresses, protocols, and ports.
  • Port security: Allows for the restriction of the number of MAC addresses that can be learned on a port, preventing unauthorized devices from accessing the network.
  • IEEE 802.1X authentication: Enables the use of a RADIUS server to authenticate users before they are granted access to the network.
  • Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) : Enables secure remote management of the switch using SSH and SSL to encrypt the communication between the switch and the management device.
  • TACACS+: Terminal Access Controller Access-Control System Plus (TACACS+) is a protocol that allows the switch to communicate with an authentication server to verify the credentials of users before allowing them access to the switch.
  • IPv6 security: The switch supports various IPv6 security features such as ICMPv6 filtering, RA Guard, DHCPv6 snooping, and Neighbor Discovery Inspection.
  • Industrial security: The switch is designed to meet industrial security standards such as IEC 62443 for industrial control systems (ICS) security, providing an additional layer of security for industrial networks.

All those feature are used to provide advanced security to the network and to protect the network from unauthorized access, malware, and other security threats.

Remote Management and Access

The IE-4000-8S4G-E Cisco 12 Ports Managed Switch offers various remote management and access options to enable network administrators to manage and access the switch remotely. These options include:

  • Remote management via CLI: The switch can be managed remotely using the command-line interface (CLI) via Telnet, SSH, or a console connection.
  • Remote management via web interface: The switch also has a web interface that can be accessed remotely using a web browser. This interface provides a graphical view of the switch configuration and status and allows for easy management of the switch.
  • Cisco Industrial Network Director (IND): The switch is also compatible with Cisco Industrial Network Director (IND), a software platform that provides a centralized view of the network and enables automated network management and security operations for industrial networks.
  • SNMP : Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) can be used to monitor the switch remotely. SNMP can be used to retrieve information about the switch's performance and configuration, and to receive notifications of any issues with the switch.
  • NETCONF : Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) is a network management protocol that allows to retrieve, configure, and control network devices using XML.
  • Remote access VPN: The switch supports Remote access VPN (Virtual Private Network) which allows remote users to connect to the network securely, using an encrypted tunnel.

All those feature are used to provide remote management and access to the switch, making it easier to monitor and manage the network from a centralized location, especially in harsh industrial environments.

Quality of Service (QoS) Capabilities

The IE-4000-8S4G-E Cisco 12 Ports Managed Switch has Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities that allow network administrators to manage the bandwidth and prioritize different types of network traffic. These capabilities include:

  • Traffic shaping and policing: Allows for the management of the bandwidth usage on the switch by setting limits on the amount of traffic that can be sent or received on a port or VLAN.
  • Class of service (CoS): Allows for the classification of traffic into different classes, based on the source and destination IP addresses, protocols, and ports. This enables the switch to prioritize different types of traffic, such as voice or video, to ensure that they receive the necessary bandwidth to function properly.
  • Queue scheduling: Allows for the assignment of different priorities to different types of traffic, so that traffic with a higher priority is serviced before traffic with a lower priority. This ensures that time-sensitive traffic, such as voice or video, is not delayed by less-critical traffic.
  • Quality of Service (QoS) groups: Allows the switch to group traffic into different classes and assign different priorities to each group.
  • Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED): prevents network congestion by randomly dropping packets when the network is congested, giving higher priority to more critical traffic.
  • Resource reservation protocol (RSVP): Allows for the reservation of bandwidth for specific types of traffic, such as voice or video, to ensure that they receive the necessary bandwidth to function properly.

All those feature allow network administrators to manage the bandwidth and prioritize different types of network traffic, ensuring that time-sensitive traffic, such as voice or video, is not delayed by less-critical traffic, guaranteeing the best performance for the network and the applications running on it.

Different Types of Switches

Networking switches vary widely depending on the number of devices they can support, network bandwidth/speed, and form factor. Switches for small offices will have anything between 4 and 8 ports and can fit on a desk. For larger office network implementation, switches may have 24 ports, 48 ports, 96 ports, and 128 ports and are rack-mountable between 1U and 4U. Switches come in different types depending on the network speed and tasks they support. These include 40/100 Gbps, 10 Gigabit (up to 10000 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1000 Mbps), Power over Ethernet, and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps).

Unmanaged Switches

The unmanaged switches offer fixed configuration on a plug-and-play basis. It is the most basic switch and there are a few choices in the market. These switches are affordable, but the basic features make them inappropriate for enterprise applications.

Managed Switches

The number of features and level of functionality improves with managed switches, making them ideal for enterprise and business applications. These switches are built with the command-line interface for ease of configuration. Equally, they support SNMP agents that come in handy when troubleshooting network issues.

The security on managed switches is better and will protect different types of traffic. Other features include support for virtual LANs, IP routing, and quality of service settings. Managed switches are more expensive compared to all other types of switches.

Smart Switches

Smart switches refer to switches that possess more features than those of unmanaged switches but do not have the full features of managed switches. Smart switches are more cost-effective than managed switches.

Some of the limitations of the smart switches are a lack of telnet access support, Web GUIs, and a lack of many features for VLANs. They are affordable compared to a fully managed switch and are suitable for a smaller computer network.

Modular Switches

Modular switches allow the addition of expansion modules as the network expands. The expansion modules allow for more networked devices but are application-specific. They may include wireless access points, firewalls, or network analysis tools. The flexibility of a modular networking switch comes at a higher cost.
