Product Overview
Introduction
Windows Remote Management software
Conventionally, configuring a switch's smart management will require users to attach the computer
(serial or printer port) directly to the switch's console port. With ECOM-ES24F2G's in-band
management capability, users can configure the switch through the Ethernet network. The included
Windows management software provides a very simple point-and-click interface to set all the
functions. Users can even backup settings to be restored in the future. Best of all, the management
utility can configure several switches using the same utility.
Management Features
The ECOM-ES24F2G is equipped with many practical management functions.
Per-port bandwidth control
allow limiting the outgoing and incoming bandwidth separately for each port .
Central Switch management:
Configure several switches at the same time.
802.1Q tag VLAN
enables VLAN assignment across different switches.
VLAN filter
provide controls to let single-cast, multi-cast, or broadcast traffic to pass between
VLANs.
Quality of Service
for multimedia applications: the 802.1p compliance provide priority traffic
management based on port, vlan-tag, or TCP/IP TOS information.
Link aggregation
The LACP(Link Aggregation Control Protocol) increase the uplink speed by allowing
several ports(Trunk Group) to link between the switches. The switch allows up to 7
trunk groups in 2 or 4 ports. Please make sure that switches on both side are setup for
the trunking function.
IGMP Snooping
for IP multicast group management

1 Product Overview
Broadcast Storm control
prevents the broadcast traffic from overflowing the network.
Loop detection
alert the user when there is a loop formed inside the network on the front panel LED.
The management software's diagnostic function even report which ports the loop
occurs.
Port setting
setting port speed and duplex mode, flow control
Authentication Keys
The switch support authentication key feature for the management function. This will
prevent unauthorized users from changing the switch’s settings.
For Detail information on management functions, please refer to Chapter 5 “Management
Software Guide”.
In-Band and Out-of-Band Management
In-Band and Out-of-Band managements are the two distinct methods for switch management.
In-Band management that includes WinSmart, Web, Telnet, and SNMP allows users to configure
the switch through the Ethernet network.
Out-of-Band management means managing the switch outside of the switch’s Ethernet network.
Console Port management is the most common type of out-of-band management. Out-of-Band
management requires the switch to be physically attached to a computer through a RS-232, USB, or
Parallel port.
The ECOM-ES24F2G is equipped with WinSmart In-band management. It uses the unique RRCP
protocol that enables the included Windows utility to manage the switch inside the LAN. However;
since it does not use IP protocol, it cannot be managed remotely from the Internet.
What is VLAN?
Defining VLAN
What is VLAN? Since VLAN solutions and implementations are still very vendor-specific, to define
precisely what VLANs will certainly arouse controversy. Nevertheless, most would agree that a
VLAN can roughly be equated as a broadcast domain. More specifically, VLANs can be seen as a
group of end stations, perhaps on multiple physical LAN segments, which are not constrained by
their physical location and can communicate as if they were on a common LAN.
There are several ways to define VLAN membership: port grouping, frame tagging, MAC-layer
grouping, network-layer grouping, IP multicast grouping, etc. ECOM-ES24F2G utilizes
port-grouping (port-based VLAN) for the implementation of VLAN in your network.

Ecom ES24F2G Gigabit Ethernet Switch
User’s Manual V1.0
1 Product Overview
Port-based VLAN
ECOM-ES24F2G Fast Ethernet Switch fulfills the initial VLAN implementation as defining
VLAN membership by groups of switch ports. Port grouping is the most common method of
defining VLAN membership, and its configuration is straightforward. But, when a user moves from
one port to another, it takes a network manager to manually reconfigure VLAN membership.
With manual VLAN configuration, both the initial setup and all subsequent moves and changes are
controlled by the network administrator, enabling a high degree of control. Also moving users
manually with VLANs may actually be easier than moving users across router subnets.
Table Maintenance via Signaling
When an end-station broadcasts its first frame, the switch resolves the end-station’s attached port
with its VLAN membership in cached address tables. As VLAN membership changes, these address
tables can be manually updated by a system administrator at a management console.
802.1q VLAN Standard
In March, 1996, the IEEE 802.1 Internet-working Subcommittee completed the initial phase of
investigation for developing a VLAN standard. The standard, known as 802.1Q, represents a major
milestone in enabling VLANs to be implemented. Since the rapid deployment of LAN switching
from around 1995, the shift toward LAN switching as a replacement for local/departmental routers,
or even shared media devices (hubs) is just accelerating for now.
What is Priority Queuing?
Priority Queuing is a method of ensuring that high priority traffic gets delivered efficiently, even
when during bursts of high traffic load. In this way, traffic such as voice data and video (services
which are streaming) are prioritized, helping steady picture and sound quality.
ECOM-ES24F2G allows 2-level (High/Normal) Priority setting by any of the three types of
priority frames operations: TCP/IP TOS, VLAN tag or per Port priority frame operation.
The QoS setting for priority per port means that all packets received by the port will be priority
frames; ECOM-ES24F2G can also judge the priority of frames by checking the specific bits of
VLAN tag or TCP/IP TOS/DS included in the frame format. ECOM-ES24F2G will judge the
priority of frames by checking the specific bits recorded in the type field of packet format to ensure
the VLAN or TCP/IP TOS/DS status of packets, then set the threshold of VLAN or TCP/IP TOS/DS
to declare the priority of packet.
If you have any plans to implement network telephony or any sort of video conferencing, streaming
video/audio or any real-time applications on your network you will need ECOM-ES24F2G for
priority queuing. Its benefit is to dramatically improve the quality of priority services on the network.
If priority queuing is not implemented then the quality of these services will depend entirely on the
loads on your network. If network traffic is high, the service will not work properly.

Making your own UTP/STP cable
The twisted-pair cable provided an eight-pin plug at each end that mate with the twisted-pair port on
the adapter and with a RJ-45 wall jack. If you are marking your own interface cables to use as
dedicated network wiring or as extension cables, please follow the guideline below:
Each UTP/STP cable contains eight wires in either 568A or
568B color scheme (please see Fig 2-7). The wires are
twisted in pairs to reduce cross talk and various signal
noises.
Each pairs composed of one positive wire and one negative
wire. The positive are marked by stripe color while the
negative are marked by solid color. A pair of wires is
composed of one stripe and one solid wire of the same color.
There are four pairs of wires, they are in group of {1 and 2},
{3 and 6},{4 and 5},{7 and 8}. Please see Fig 2-8 for
diagram.
When making a cable, make sure the correct pairs of wire are
twisted together before inserting into the jack. Incorrect
twisted pair will cause the cable to malfunction or signal
degradation over short distance.
A straight-thru cable have jacks on both end following
the same color scheme.
A cross-over cable have jacks on both end following the
opposite color scheme (one 568A and one 568B)
While 10/100Base-TX only use the first 2 pairs of wires
(1+2, 3+6). However, please still make sure all 4 pairs
are twisted and insert into the jack in correct order.
The 1000Base-T Gigabit port use all 4-pairs of wires.

Make sure the Power is ON (Check the Power LED).
Make sure the cable is connected properly on both ends.
Make sure that the maximum cable length between switch and end node
does not exceed 100 meters (for 10/100/1000BASE-T connection).
Make sure that the maximum switch-to-hub/switch cable distance does not
exceed 100 meters (for 10/100/1000BASE-T connection).
Verify that the cabling type used is correct.
Check the corresponding Link/Act, FDX/Col, 100M, 1000M for signs of
faulty connection. Check the status of the cable attachment. If the problem
persists, try a different cable.
Try another port on the Switch.
Turn off power supply to the Switch. After a while, turn it on again to see if
it resumes to its normal function.
If you find out where the problem is but cannot solve it by yourself, or you
simply cannot locate what is at fault, please contact your local dealer for
technical support.
