    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide NTRODUCTION This section describes the features of the Switch, as well as giving some background information about Ethernet/Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and switching technology. Fast Ethernet Technology The growing importance of LANs and the increasing complexity of desktop computing applications are fueling the need for high performance networks.

  • Page 8: Switching Technology

    Features The DES-3624 series of Switches can include one master (DES-3624I, DES-3624iF, or DES-3624iFM) and up to three clients (DES-3624, DES-3624F, or DES-3624FM). They are designed for easy installation and high performance in an environment where traffic on the network and the number of users increases continuously.

    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide IP Addresses and SNMP Community Names Each Switch has its own IP Address, which is used for communication with an SNMP network manager or other TCP/IP application (for example BOOTP, TFTP). You can change the default Switch IP Address to meet the specification of your networking address scheme.

    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide ♦ Automatic topology re-configuration When the path for which there is a backup path fails, the backup path will be automatically activated, and STA will automatically re-configure the network topology. STA Operation Levels STA operates on two levels: the bridge level and the port level. On the bridge level, STA calculates the Bridge Identifier for each Switch, then sets the Root Bridge and the Designated Bridges.

  • Page 33: Mac-based Broadcast Domains

    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide setup on your network and configure the Switch accordingly. 802.1Q VLANs support IEEE 802.1Q tagging, which enables them to span the entire network (assuming all switches on the network are IEEE 802.1Q- compliant). In contrast, MAC-based broadcast domains are limited to the Switch and devices directly connected to them.

  • Page 34: 802.1q Vlan Segmentation

    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide There are two key components to understanding 802.1Q VLANs: Port VLAN ID numbers (PVIDs) and VLAN ID numbers (VIDs). Both variables are assigned to a switch port, but there are important differences between them. A user can only assign one PVID to each switch port. The PVID defines which VLAN a packet belongs to when packets need to be forwarded to another switch port or somewhere else on the network.

  • Page 35: 802.1q Vlans Spanning Multiple Switches

    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide 7,11,12 1,2,3,7,11,12 Table 5-2. VLAN assignments for Figure 5-4 The server attached to Port 7 is shared by VLAN 1 and VLAN 2 because Port 7 is a member of both VLANs (it is listed as a member of VID 1 and 2). Since it can receive packets from both VLANs, all ports can successfully send packets to it to be printed.

  • Page 36: Port-based Vlans

    Stackable NWay Ethernet Switch User’s Guide Figure 5-5. Data transmissions between 802.1Q-compliant Switches In the above example, step 4 is the key element. Because the packet has 802.1Q VLAN data encoded in its header, the ingress port can make VLAN-based decisions about its delivery: whether server #2 is attached to a port that is a member of VLAN 2 and, thus, should the packet be delivered;...

  • Page 37: Broadcast Storms

    However, with the advent of VLANs, switches are now able to limit broadcast domains better and cheaper than routers. Also, many switches, including the DES-3624 Series, have broadcast sensors and filters built into each port to further control broadcast storms.
