Powerful features like centralized management, auto-backup, auto-upgrade, auto-provisioning and auto-recovery enable plug-and-play networking and zero-touch management.
  • The SBx908 GEN2 can operate as the AMF network master, storing firmware and configuration backups for all other network nodes. The AMF master enables auto-provisioning and auto-upgrade by providing appropriate files to new network members.
  • AMF Guestnode allows Allied Telesis wireless access points and further switching products, as well as third party devices such as IP phones and security cameras, to be part of an AMF network.
  • The SBx908 GEN2 provides a single-pane-of-glass interface to the entire network. Administrators can view the AMF topology map using the intuitive Device GUI.

AWC Wireless Management

  • Optimize wireless network performance with the Autonomous Wave Controller (AWC), built-in to the SBx908 GEN2. AWC analyzes wireless traffic patterns and automatically reconfigures access points to meet demand.
  • Wireless network operation in multi-channel, single-channel (Channel Blanket), and hybrid (multi-channel and Channel Blanket) modes, supports maximum data throughput and seamless roaming for the most flexible wireless solution available.

Large Network Tables

  • High-capacity 2.6 Terabit fabric and 1,905Mpps packet forwarding provide powerful data transfer capability, supporting large campus networks as well as Smart City and IoT solutions. Large MAC and IP host tables are ready for the increasing number of connected devices found in modern enterprise and city-wide networks.

Multi-speed Ports

  • Copper ports on the XEM2-12XTm expansion module support 2.5 and 5 Gigabit connectivity to enable high-speed wireless, or maximum downlink speed using legacy Cat5E/6 cabling.

Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF Lite)

  • VRF Lite provides Layer 3 network virtualization by dividing a single switch into multiple independent virtual routing domains. With independent routing domains, IP addresses can overlap without causing conflict, allowing multiple customers to have their own secure virtual network within the same physical infrastructure. VRF Lite on the SBx908 GEN2 supports both unicast and multicast traffic.

EPSRing

  • EPSRing allows several switches to form protected rings with 50ms failover—perfect for high performance at the core of Enterprise or Provider Access networks.
  • SuperLoop Protection enables a link between two EPSR nodes to be in separate EPSR domains, improving redundancy and network fault resiliency.

Media Access Control Security (MACSec)

  • 802.1AE MACSec secures all traffic on point-to-point Ethernet links between directly connected nodes, ensuring protection against security threats such as denial of service, intrusion, man-in-the-middle, passive wiretapping, and playback attacks.

G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection

  • G.8032 provides standards-based high-speed ring protection, that can be deployed stand-alone, or interoperate with Allied Telesis EPSR.
  • Ethernet Connectivity Fault Monitoring (CFM) proactively monitors links and VLANs, and provides alerts when a fault is detected.

sFlow

  • sFlow is an industry standard technology for monitoring high speed switched networks. It provides complete visibility into network use, enabling performance optimization, usage accounting/billing, and defence against security threats. Sampled packets sent to a collector ensure it always has a real-time view of network traffic.

Quality of Service (QoS)

  • Comprehensive low-latency wire-speed QoS provides flow-based traffic management with full classification, prioritization, traffic shaping and min/max bandwidth profiles. Enjoy boosted network performance and guaranteed delivery of business-critical Ethernet services and applications. Time-critical services like voice and video applications take precedence over non-essential services like file downloads, maintaining responsiveness of Enterprise applications.

Premium Software License

  • By default, the SBx908 GEN2 offers a comprehensive Layer 2 and standard Layer 3 feature set that includes static routing and IPv6 management features. The feature set can easily be elevated to full Layer 3 by applying the premium software license. This adds dynamic routing protocols and Layer 3 multicasting capabilities.

Optical DDM

  • Most modern optical SFP/SFP+/QSFP+ transceivers support Digital Diagnostics Monitoring (DDM) functions according to the specification SFF-8472. This enables real time monitoring of the various parameters of the transceiver, such as optical output power, temperature, laser bias current and transceiver supply voltage. Easy access to this information simplifies diagnosing problems with optical modules and fiber connections.

Active Fiber Monitoring

  • Active Fiber Monitoring prevents eavesdropping on fiber communications by monitoring received optical power. If an intrusion is detected, the link can be automatically shut down, or an operator alert can be sent. Active Fiber Monitoring is supported on fiber data and fiber stacking links.

VLAN ACLs

  • Simplify access and traffic control across entire segments of the network. Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be applied to a Virtual LAN (VLAN) as well as a specific port.

TACACS+ Command Authorization

  • Centralize control of which commands may be issued by a specific user of an AlliedWare Plus device. TACACS+ command authorization complements authentication and accounting services for a complete AAA solution.

UniDirectional Link Detection

  • UniDirectional Link Detection (UDLD) is useful for monitoring fiber-optic links between two switches that use two single-direction fibers to transmit and receive packets. UDLD prevents traffic from being sent across a bad link by blocking the ports at both ends of the link in the event that either the individual transmitter or receiver for that connection fails.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

  • OpenFlow is a key technology that enables the use of SDN to build smart applications that unlock value and reduce cost.

VLAN Translation

  • VLAN Translation allows traffic arriving on a VLAN to be mapped to a different VLAN on the outgoing paired interface.
  • In Metro networks, it is common for a network Service Provider (SP) to give each customer their own unique VLAN, yet at the customer location give all customers the same VLAN-ID for tagged packets to use on the wire. SPs can use VLAN Translation to change the tagged packet’s VLAN-ID at the customer location to the VLAN-ID for tagged packets to use within the SP’s network.
  • This feature is also useful in Enterprise environments where it can be used to merge two networks together, without manually reconfiguring the VLAN numbering scheme. This situation can occur if two companies have merged and the same VLAN-ID is used for two different purposes.

Integrated wireless LAN management

Integrated Wireless LAN
 

Allied Telesis Autonomous Wave Control (AWC) offers solutions for two of the most common problems with Wireless LANs: initial setup complexity, and on-going performance degradation. Initial WLAN set-up usually requires a site survey to achieve the best coverage, and performance of WLANs can often change over time as external sources of radio interference reduce coverage and bandwidth. These issues can be time-consuming to identify and resolve.

AWC features an intelligent process that automatically recalibrates the signal strength and radio channel of each Access Point (AP) for optimal WLAN performance. This recalibration is performed daily based on measurements taken from each AP to compensate for interference such as unscreened electrical equipment, changes to office layout, or neighbouring wireless networks.

AWC is integrated into the SwitchBlade x908 GEN2 and provides the ideal solution for modern enterprise networks, enabling management of both the wired (with AMF) and wireless (with AWC) networks to be automated. This reduces both the time and cost of network administration, as well as maximizing network performance for a superior user experience.

Up to five TQ Series wireless APs can be managed for free, and up to a further 300 APs (max 305) with feature licenses, are available separately.

When using the TQ5403 APs, hybrid Channel Blanket enables multi-channel and single-channel WiFi operation simultaneously. This supports seamless roaming and maximum throughput. Channel Blanket licenses are available for up to 300 APs.
