Allied Telesyn AT-8088 Fast Ethernet managed switch provides exceptional performance, ease of use and flexibility at an affordable price. Utilizing a robust 9.6Gbps non-blocking switching architecture for wire speed packet forwarding and featuring priority queuing for weighted packet management, the AT-8088 is ideally suited for deployment in small and medium enterprises, in multiunit buildings, hotels, schools and universities.
The AT-8088 supports the Allied Telesyn signature feature Enhanced Stacking which enables up to 24 switches, 576 10/100TX ports, to be remotely managed by a single IP address. The 24 switches can be any combination of any models, fixed port or with expansion bays, of the AT-8088.
Although the 8088 can be used as Plug & Play devices, an extensive range of management is provided at no additional charge. Management features include Web-based management, SNMP and Telnet, and availability via any VLAN (tagged or untagged). Firmware and configuration files may be uploaded/downloaded via TFTP, XModem (via RS-232 Console) or Enhanced Stacking feature.
Richly equipped with features that include IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging and IEEE 802.1p priority queuing, the 8088 allows for greater network microsegmentation and traffic prioritization. When network managers have bandwidth hungry or time sensitive data, these switches can be configured to prioritize this traffic over other types. The 8088 also features IEEE 802.3ad compliant Link Aggregation capabilities on each port, supporting up to 4 ports in a 10/100 trunk group or 2 ports in a 1000BASE-FX trunk group. Auto-negotiation and broadcast storm control capabilities on all ports are included. Additionally the Auto MDI/MDI-X feature allows easy connection to other switches from any port.
