Layer 3 10Gbps Ethernet Switch

10Gbps L3 Ethernet Switch Overview

The Case Communications R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT is a 10Gbps L3 Ethernet Switch with advanced management functionality,  IPv4 / IPv6 management with static routes and full line rate forwarding. Routing between VLANS also provides segmentation and flexibility.


The Case Communications R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT  is supplied with  24 x 10/100/1000Mbps ports, 8 x 100 / 1000 SFP (Combo) Ports and 4 x 10Gbps SFP Ports.

Hardware Performance

The R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT has a 512 Gbps non-blocking backplane and can switch 92.32 Million packets per second, a 512MB of FLASH and 512MB of RAM , ensuring its able to cope with the highest demands.

Layer 3 Routing

The R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT supports routing using RIPv1 / v2 & IPv6 RIPng, as well as OSFPv2 and IPv6 OSPFv3 and BGP4 and IPv5 BGP4+. Policy routing and VRRP are also supported


The R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT supports multiple network redundancy protocols such as STP (Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1D)), RSTP Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1w)), MSTP (Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (802.1s)) and ITU-T G.8032 (ERPS (Ethernet Ring Protection Switching). G.8032  provides sub-50ms protection and recovery switching for Ethernet traffic in a ring topology.  Accordingly this ensures  that there are no loops formed at the Ethernet layer.

10Gbps L3 Ethernet Switch Management

The Switch can be managed via a Web Browser, CLI, Console, or SNMPv1 / v2C , V3.

The R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT supports a system log, restoring of configuration, upgrading the software, configuring the time and a CL as well as remote Telnet Management.


Defence mechanisms on the R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT include CPU Protection, (limiting the rate of packets to the CPU) ARP Binding (IP, MAC and Port Bind) and DoS (Denial of Service) defence

The Case Communications R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT supports dynamic or static binding for the users, via an IP Address, MAC Address, VLAN or Ports etc.

Network Reliability

Additionally the R3-24Tx-8S-4SX-RT supports ‘Port Isolation’ to prevent communications between two neighbouring devices within the same broadcast domain, which improves network stability. The R3-24P-8S-4X-G also supports ‘Storm Control’ and can suppress broadcast, Multi-cast and unicast storms.

Support for specific ARP inspections can effectively prevent ‘ARP Spoofing attacks’ which can be created by hackers or attackers via ARP Packets.
