Product Overview
Main Features
  • 16-port 100BASE-FX Fast Ethernet managed rackmountable switch with 2 expansion slots
With its highly integrated chipset capable of deep packet examination, the 8500 series is rich in features The AT-8500 Series is a managed switch that brings enhanced security and Layer 2-4 intelligence to networks. Many network administrators demand easy to manage, cost effective, intelligent switches at the LAN edge, and the AT-8500 switch answers such demands, with the optimal balance of features, performance, and value. More intelligent than simple L2 switches, the cost-effective AT-8500 offers advanced attack detection and suppression capabilities for increased security and advanced QoS to support converged applications.

The AT-8500 Series packs a lot of features in one rack unit. With advanced AlliedWareTM technology, the AT-8500 switches, allow network administrators to configure the switch to examine packet formats and content from Layer 2, Layer 3, or Layer 4 (also known as the MAC, IP and TCP/UDP layers). After these layer parameters are defined and detected, the switch can take actions for protection against DoS attacks, establishing rate limits for excessive
bandwidth usage, and altering QoS to support converged applications.

With the heightened concern for Denial of Services attacks, Allied Telesyn is focusing on the security features within its products. Assisted by the L2 through L4 intelligence, network administrators can deploy the AT-8500 as a complement to WAN firewalls and PC anti-virus software to fortify networks against attacks.The AT-8500 switches are programmed to detect six well-known DoS attacks, and coupled with security features such as 802.1x (Port Based Network Access Control) and Radius/TACACS+, the AT-8500 series offers Tiered Security on each port. Deploying Tiered Security within unsecured areas of corporate offices—such as meeting rooms and lounges—provides cost-effective protections at the data link layer.

Allied Telesis has designed the AT-8500 series to allow smart management of network resources with two key features:

• Ingress and Egress rate-limiting to provision bandwidth QoS support with 802.1p and DiffServ for priority traffic.

• The AT-8500 Series also includes CoS to DSCP remarking, allowing layer 2 QoS priorities to be preserved over the WAN (typically a Layer 3 feature).

The AT-8500 series can be pre-configured to control bandwidth-wasting traffic—such as music streaming to the desktops—by dynamically lowering the priority and limiting bandwidth for these traffic flows.The same features can benefit metro providers as well, allowing them to offer bandwidth provisioning and QoS priority as premium service
to customers.
