Your first steps with the ROQSTAR Ethernet Switch: With the help of short video tutorials we introduce you to the most important features and teach you all the essential settings. You can also download further information as PDF, white papers and more.
Giving a switch an individual description or location information can be helpful to identify the switch in the vehicle. Network devices need individual IP addresses to access them. These can also be customized quickly and easily via the web interface.
The switch must have at least one IP address. At this address the switch web interface is available. Our switches come with a pre-configured default IP address. IP-based services offered by the switch make use of this IP address: for example the DHCP Server, SNMP, or Remote Logging functions. Configuring the IP addresses used by the switch lets you continue with the next step: Set up the addresses offered via DHCP by the switch to the connected devices.
With a DHCP server you can assign IP addresses centrally. Peripheral devices often are set for an “automatic IP assignment”, which means they have a DHCP client running. The switch’s DHCP server is then able to offer an IP address to the peripheral device. That way you won’t need to configure the IP in each device connected to the network. Also additional parameters like the subnet mask and the addresses of the gateway or DNS server can be transmitted.
In this video we demonstrate how to set up Network Address Translation (NAT) for a ROQSTAR Ethernet Switch by TRONTEQ. NAT is used for changing the IP address or port information in Ethernet packets. Most often, NAT is used to allow internal hosts to communicate. This is a layer 3 function that is also being supported by ROQSTAR Ethernet Switches.
In this video we demonstrate how to set up Power over Ethernet (PoE) on a ROQSTAR Ethernet Switch by TRONTEQ. Using PoE the Ethernet switch can supply power to compatible devices using the Ethernet cable, so no additional power cable is necessary. By default, PoE is enabled. It might be useful though to adjust its settings. For example, to prioritize some devices over others or to manage the allotted PoE budget in order to supply more devices.
Our products are fundamental for the digitalization in public transport. ROQSTAR M12 Ethernet Switches provide the network infrastructure for e-ticketing, passenger counting systems (PCS), dynamic passenger information (DPI) and closed-circuit television (CCTV).
