The MEN-3406 is an entry level access switch which belong to serial products for villages. The Switch is designed to deliver power and reliability in one cost-effective equipment, a scalable and future-proof network solution to fit the network requirements of families and small communities. Providing the ideal combination of affordability and excellent switching capabilities, it helps to create an efficient network at relatively cost effective. Built with powerful chipset and richly equipped with much software features, the switch delivers maximum performance and enables service providers to operate their network more efficiently. Designed with 4 downlink copper ports that deliver 10/100/1000Mbps speeds, the MEN-3406 is a perfect effective cost solution for service providers who want to offer high-value Ethernet services for low density subscriber base with medium ARPU. Equipped with Dual 100/1000 multi-rate SFP uplinks which can be configured as ring ports to provide link redundancy in gigabit fiber based ring architecture networks, or daisy chain to extend distance.
Unparalleled Network Performance Excessive and unnecessary inbound unicast, multicast or broadcast traffic on physical interfaces can degrade your network performance and can even result in complete loss of network service. Storm control and traffic monitor features of the MEN-3406 enables ISPs to effectively monitor and limit incoming traffic to prevent disruption of LAN ports. In addition, Loop detection on the switch identifies loops in the network and disables the relevant ports to avoid loop storms, preventing LAN degradation and achieving maximum network performance. These features along with auto-recovery timer deliver robotic methods to control your network automatically
Stable and Reliable Device Operations Abnormal power supply puts extra strain on the components of the switch, wearing it down over time and resulting in increased network downtime. Built with increased level of power supply protection, the MEN-3406 features OCP, OVP and Surge protection to ensure stable and reliable device operations. Surge protector function on each copper port and protects the ports as well as device from surges entering through LAN cables. Even in unstable power conditions, these features of the switch prevent sudden network downtime protecting your infrastructure investments and avoiding unnecessary operational expenditure.
Comprehensive QoS Mechanisms to Assign Priority Network applications need different levels of services delivered to them reliably without any transmission delays and interruptions. The MEN-3406 has comprehensive QoS mechanisms that assign priority to applications and send only specific dedicated traffic to them. In addition, bandwidth management functions of the switch allocate greater bandwidth for mission-critical communications. With increased control, administrators can prevent unpredictable errors and utilize the bandwidth more effectively
Efficient Network Monitoring and Management Tools The MEN-3406 features SNMP, an industry standard management protocol, enables administrators to centrally manage and monitor the network, and easily but quickly identify issues that impact network performance. Supported by SNMP traps, the switch allows administrators to monitor unsolicited SNMP trap messages and maintain a helpful network status data for managing a healthy network. And in the event of network malfunction, Email alarm feature of the switch sends email alerts to notify administrator regarding real time network problems. These efficient features speed up and simplify network monitoring and troubleshooting, reducing operational head burden.
