Secure and High Performance PC or laptop connectivity:
The GS-2328KX switch can easily and securely connect clients' PC or
laptop in offices with each other and with all of the servers, printers,
and other networking devices they use. High performance and reliable
connectivity will help to speed file transfers and data processing,
improves network performance and security, and keeps the clients
connected and productive.
Secure and Quality wireless connectivity:
The GS-2328KX switch connected with WiFi APs allow WiFi clients to
work from conference rooms and public areas, collaborate in any place,
and access networking from wherever they are. Gigabit Ethernet
connectivity provides these clients have the suitable bandwidth and
quality performance they need to make mobility connected. Through
embedded security, the clients can work with confidence and
authorized users can access networking and network devices.
Unified communications with open standards:
To be a managed network solution, it provides the high performance
and advanced networking quality to deliver all networking
communications and data (such as IP telephony, IP surveillance, and
Video Streaming ) over a single network.
Advanced network security: The GS-2328KX Switch provides
enhanced and advanced network security to guests in public or private
area, such as a hotel, an office lobby, or any area open to guests.
Using powerful but simple to install security and traffic separating
abilities, through guest VLAN or guest access control technology, it will
help you to isolate vital networking traffic from guest services and keep
guests' network sessions private from each other.
The GS-2328KX provides security, performance, quality of services,
central management and other network control capabilities. Optimized
and customized design and affordable pricing, it best fit for SMB or entrylevel enterprise solution. It provides:
Excellent performance and reliability:
The GS-2328KX passed the rigorously testing to deliver excellent
performance. As a managed switching solution, it also provides the
flexibility to manage and prioritize suitable-bandwidth traffic such as
Easy, simple deployment and configuration:
The device manager software provides an intuitive, web-based
interface to simplify deployment, advanced security (ACLs, IP Source
guard, VLAN...etc), and quality of service (QoS) traffic prioritization. It
also provides a standard protocol that works through a simple network

managed system software (RubyView) to discover RubyTech's devices in the network and display basic
information. This switch uses IEEE802.1AB LLDP to automatically discover all the devices (those support LLDP)
connected to the network. For more advanced capabilities and Easy-to-use graphical tools, such as ECP (EasyPort-Configuration), provides preset options for easily configuring each port of the switch, it will make setup easy
when operating with IP phones, IP cameras or Wifi APs. The tree CLI architecture will greatly save your time on the
network deployment, management and troubleshooting.
Strong security: The switch provides an advanced security and gives you tight control to safeguard the
network from unauthorized users. Advanced security features include:
---Secure remote management by supporting SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connection which encrypt the packet content
at each session.
---Extensive access control lists (ACLs) to restrict sensitive portions of the network from unauthorized users or
---Guest virtual LANs (VLANs) provide Internet connectivity to guests while isolating critical traffic from guest
---IP Source Guard to prevent datagrams with spoofed addresses from being in the network.
---IEEE802.1X port security to tightly limit access to specific segments of network.
Voice support:
The switch can be easily configured with the specific VLAN and QoS parameters to prioritize voice traffic whereas
ensure consistent network performance for all services.
Advanced network management capabilities: As a managed switch, it helps you to use a variety of advanced
managing features to manage traffic over your network. Features
---Support IPv6: As the IP network addressing scheme evolves to accommodate more devices, GS-2328KX
supports IPv6, the newest version of the Internet Protocol, as well as the previous IPv4 standard.
As the result, you have the ability to move up to the next generation of networking applications
without an extensive equipment upgrade.
---Remote management: Using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and IEEE802.1AB LLDP, you can
configure and manage GS-2328KX and other Rubytech switches in the network
remotely, instead of having to directly connect to them.
Energy efficiency: GS-2328KX is designed to comply with IEEE802.3az, energy efficient Ethernet protocol,
reducing energy costs without compromising performance. Power-saving features include:
---The latest application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), using low-power technology, allow for lower power
consumption and thinner, more efficient designs.
---Embedded intelligence to adjust signal strength based on cable length.
Expansion ports:
Featuring 20 Gigabit UTP ports, the GS-2328KX also offers 4 Combo UTP/ (100/1G) SFP ports for uplinks to Fast
Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic networks and (1G/10G) SFP+ ports for uplinks to Gigabit Ethernet or 10G
Ethernet fiber optic networks.
