Affordable, Managed Gigabit Switching with Flexible Uplinks
The "smart" voice-ready 3ComŽ Baseline Plus Switch 2928 is a
web-managed Gigabit switch with extensive layer 2 functionality and
layer 3 static routes. It offers enterprise-class features,
customized and priced for small- and mid-sized organizations.
With an easy-to-use switch interface and advanced features (VLANs,
IEEE 802.1X authentication and QoS), this switch is the most
cost-effective way to provide a converged network.
Layer 2 Switching with Advanced Features
The Baseline Plus Switch 2928 has twenty-four 10/100/1000 Mbps
ports and four 1000 Mbps SFP ports (fiber) to connect to
high-performance computers, servers, or core network
This "smart" switch has the features that help build a voice ready
network, with support for auto-voice VLAN, LLDP, SNMP-based
management, IGMP snooping, and IEEE 802.1X and advanced Access
Control Lists (ACLs) for strengthening security.
The switch provides non-blocking performance— all 28 ports perform
at wirespeed which helps to eliminate network traffic bottlenecks.
LACP link aggregation (IEEE 802.3ad) allows ports to be
automatically grouped together to form an ultra-high-bandwidth
connection that greatly expands bandwidth capacity to the network
The Baseline Plus Switch 2928 also supports Spanning Tree, Rapid
Spanning Tree and Multiple Spanning Tree, traffic prioritization,
priority queuing and VLANs. These switching features ensure optimal
use of available bandwidth as traffic flow is directed according to
the needs of the business.
No Switch Setup Required
This Baseline Plus switch is operational straight out-of-the-box;
as long as default settings are acceptable, there is no need to
configure the switch. If desired, the switch can be configured
using a web browser or SNMP management software.
Enhanced Intuituve Management Options
For networks that require more control, the switch web management
interface provides an intuitive, menu driven process for even
novice users to quickly and confidently configure the switch during
initial setup and manage it during normal operation. Graphical
switch and port views provide a clear understanding of switch
status and configuration.
In addition, the web interface features individual port-traffic
monitoring (port mirroring) and MAC address port mapping tables. A
cable diagnostic tool lets users troubleshoot basic connectivity
problems via the web management interface further simplifying
With single IP management, up to 32 devices of the same family
(3CRBSGxxx models) can be managed from one IP address via the IRF
This Baseline Plus Switch is also supported by IMC (Intelligent
Managent Center), 3Com Network Supervisor (3NS) and 3Com Network
Director (3ND) management software.
IMC can be used to map the network topology, indicating what
devices are connected, and on what ports. Switch management and
software upgrades can be easily done. Other SNMP-based management
tools may also be used.
The Switch family also supports a compact Command Line Interface
(CLI) that is accessed via the front panel console port. Using the
CLI, initial switch setup options can be quickly configured.
