NetVanta 1534 Key Product Features
With the combination of the advanced multi-layer switching fabric, high-bandwidth capabilities, and enhanced Quality of Service (QoS) features, the NetVanta 1534 is ideal in Gigabit-to-the- desktop deployments, and converged voice and data networks.
ADTRAN NetVanta 1534
Hardware The NetVanta 1534 rackmountable switch provides 28 Gigabit Ethernet ports, consisting of 24 fixed 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet ports, two 1.0 Gbps Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) ports, and two 2.5 Gbps enhanced SFP ports located on the back. Together the four SFP ports can provide up to 14 Gbps of bandwidth between interconnected NetVanta 1534 switches. “Halfrack” in size, you can scale to 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight SFP optical ports utilizing two NetVanta 1534 switches side-by-side in a single 19-inch rack space.
Multi-layer Switching with the ADTRAN NetVanta 1534
The NetVanta 1534 supports advanced multi-layer (Layer 2 and Layer 3 Lite) switching with up to 16 static routes allowing it to easily scale from SMBs to enterprise-size networks.
VoIP ReadyNetVanta 1534
The NetVanta 1534 is VoIP-ready with the ability to automatically configure IP phones using LLDPMED, and the ability to separate voice traffic onto voice VLANs, to simplify the deployment of VoIP. In addition, the switch includes a VoIP Setup Wizard (available via a Web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) or Command Line Interface (CLI)), which automates the complete VoIP setup process reducing deployment time and eliminating errors. An on-demand VoIP report provides a printable summary of the switch VoIP configuration, as well as providing alerts and recommendations to improve performance. All NetVanta switches support QoS to prioritize VoIP traffic, 802.1p and DiffServ Class of Service (CoS).
Security features of the NetVanta 1534
The NetVanta 1534 offers a variety of data security features including DoS protection, MAC-based port security, multilevel user passwords, Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for encrypted user login, and Access Authentication and Authorization (AAA) for authentication with RADIUS and TACACS+. With features such as 802.1x and port security, administrators can assure that only authorized users are allowed access to the network.
The ADTRAN® Operating System (AOS) also features desktop auditing using DHCP in conjunction with Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP) protocol to monitor the health of client computers. The two protocols work together to ensure that systems connected to the network are using appropriate corporate policies, such as firewall settings, antivirus settings and other client health information.
NetVanta 1534 Port Scheduler
NetVanta 1534 allows ports to be enable or disabled based on time of day. This ability to schedule available ports allows for added security and can provide less power consumption during off hours saving on utility cost.
All ADTRAN NetVanta Gigabit Ethernet switches are optimized for iSCSI SANs deployments. Network administrators can take advantage of features such as Jumbo frame support (up to 13K), separation of iSCSI network traffic utilizing VLANs, and 802.3x flow control to seamlessly integrate ADTRAN switches with iSCSI SANs devices.
Administration of the NetVanta 1534
AOS offers both a CLI and an intuitive Web-based GUI with step-by-step configuration wizards. For automating setup and configuration, NetVanta 1534 supports Auto-Config which provides the ability to automatically obtain the switch configuration via DHCP. AOS also offers network forensics to aid in troubleshooting network problems by allowing network administrators to easily locate devices on the network by MAC or IP address.
