Resilient and redundant design
A quick recovery and round-the-clock network is vital for service providers to establish a robust network. The MGS3520 Series provides comprehensive features to make sure network is well operated. The IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation feature reduces network downtime by providing redundant paths and bandwidth aggregation to critical connections, while IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) allow immediate recovery from failed connections by sending packets via the backup link. Furthermore, since the MGS3520 Series supports backup power system, the power is supplied to the switch in case of an unexpected outage.
Agile traffic control for converged networking applications
Design for access layer converged data, video and voice applications, the Zyxel MGS3520 Series has a rich Layer 2 feature set that can shape the traffic
for diverse VoIP, video conference, and IPTV deployment. Supporting L2 multicast and IGMP snooping, the MGS3520 Series can support large IPTV deployments, which using bandwidth efficiently by directing multicast traffic to the subscribers only. The Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) function ensures better network security by allowing a single multicast VLAN to be shared in the network while subscribers remain in separate VLANs. These advanced traffic control features of the MGS3520 Series provide hotels, businesses, and educational institutions greater agility and more effective traffic management for converged applications of today.
