SWX3220 / SWX2320

Create high-speed, high-capacity networks with 10-gigabit and multi-gigabit speeds

The LAN ports of the SWX2320-16MT and SWX3220-16MT support five speeds (100M/1G/2.5G/5G/10Gbps) and optimize network speed as appropriate to the devices connected. As demand for speed and capacity grows because of rising numbers of wireless devices, greater audiovisual communication traffic, and increasing access to large files, faster LAN switches allow smooth handling of loads that would congest 1 Gbps networks. Networks that already use Cat5e or Cat6 cables can be accelerated to up to 5 Gbps by replacing their GbE switches with these new models. 10 Gbps networks can be created by using Cat6A cables with these models.

One-click Dante Optimization

IGMP and QoS settings for SWX2320-16MT/SWX3220-16MT switches can be automatically optimized for Dante network operation by simply clicking the “Dante optimization” button in the web-based GUI. These network settings are not critical in simple systems, but proper configuration is essential to ensure maximum stability in larger Dante networks.

Network Visibility and Smart Management (Yamaha LAN Monitor)

Yamaha LAN Monitor

Effective Dante network management hinges on a range of parameters such as network traffic, switch status, and individual Dante device information. The dedicated Yamaha LAN Monitor computer application provides a comprehensive single-screen view of all necessary parameters when used with SWP/SWR/SWX series switches. We refer to this type of graphical overview as “network visbility.” You can even take a snapshot of the normal network status and set an alarm to warn you if any of the parameters changes, so that problems can be identified and resolved quickly and easily. The Dante Controller application can also be launched from the Yamaha LAN Monitor with a single click, providing a total Dante network solution on a single computer.

Intelligent Security Management

Augmenting the VLAN functionality included in the SWX2320-16MT/SWX3220-16MT is built-in RADIUS server function. By setting up one switch as a RADIUS server and linking other switches to it, unauthorized network access can be effectively blocked for enhanced security, even in complex large-scale installations. Device authentication can be set up quickly and easily via a web-based GUI.

Support for PTPv2 TC time synchronization of 1 μsec or less

Yamaha L3 Switch SWX3220 / L2 Switch SWX2320: Support for PTPv2 TC time synchronization of 1 μsec or less

To provide the high-precision time synchronization necessary for synchronized audio and video playback and other applications, IEEE 1588 PTPv2 TC (Transparent Clock) is now supported with 1 Gbps/10 Gbps networks. This feature adds delay time data to PTP messages as they pass through the switches, enabling synchronization precision between devices of 1 μsec or less when real-time performance is required.

Options for Flexible System Design and Installation

A number of options are available for the SWR/SWX series, including rack-mount and wall-mount brackets that facilitate mounting in a variety of locations, and SFP modules that allow long-distance communication for flexible overall system setup and installation. The chart below lists the options that are available for each SWR and SWX switch model.
