    SMBs, you do notice that your increasing business requires much more comprehensive corporate structure to conduct diversified tasks. At the same time, your current corporate structure escalates the complexity of the IT infrastructure such as the considerable numbers of wire PCs needed, the management of bandwidth usage, the need of isolated date transmission between departments and so on. Not having sufficient IT resources to deal with these things? DrayTek VigorSwitch series make you and your IT professionals' life easier. In addition to the basic switch function for managing wire PCs, VigorSwitch series take care of the stable quality and security of data flow.
    VigorSwitch series utilize both fixed and dynamic methods to ensure your quality of daily data transmission, especially for the real-time application. For fixed method, DrayTek bandwidth management allows users to define different bandwidth for various departments. For example, you might like your Sales Dept. to always have highest speed for data upload/download to achieve customers' requests ASAP. On the other hand, your HR Dept. could be allocated the smaller bandwidth due to its job function more focusing on internal communication. For dynamic method, DrayTek applies QoS to make sure the essential data always receives the highest priority. For instance, QoS gives your VoIP the highest priority to ensure the crystal-clear voice quality.
    For external networking communication security, VigorSwitch series apply IEEE802.1x authentications for each network access for users. Moreover, MAC filter function allows users to limit the number of MAC address per prot. Users can define static MAC address for each port to ensure the access of registered machines. With these two features, users can establish an access mechanism with identifying user and machine, and control the number of access stations easily.
    For you internal management security, you wouldn't like each individual in your organization to access the corporate confidential data not corresponding to his/her job function. VigorSwitch series allows you to set up various VLAN groups to control the access between certain VLAN groups to enhance the security. For example, Sales Dept. (VLAN 1) would only have limited or no data accessibility to Financial Dept. (VLAN 2) dependent upon our corporate policy. On the other hand, employees in the same department (VLAN) can exchange data much quickly to enhance the performance.
    Besides providing security, VLAN group setup also lets you easily grant the suitable bandwidth to particular Dept. Moreover, VLAN assists dynamic data transmission through Q in Q. For example, VigorSwitch series would assign the tag for certain data related to real-time applications such as VoIP or IPTV to obtain the highest speed through your network.
    Certainly, DrayTek understands you want morel VigorSwitch series complied with Layer 2 are easy to use and install. Also, VigorSwitch series fully-compatible with existing 10/100/1000 network infrastructure provide high speed data flow with 8 and 24 gigabit Ethernet ports. Users can utilize dual media ports for flexibly switching to the fiber connection. Moreover, VigorSwitch series reflect the current “Green IT " demand to have noiseless design and launch POE switch to better manage your energy consumption. Now, you can save your electricity bill and protect our own mother earth at the same time.




    VigorSwith G2080 offers benefits for both security and performance with the VLAN function. VLAN can isolate traffic among different clients. In addition, it provides good security in a network application. Within the same VLAN broadcast domain, the limited broadcast traffic can enhance performance of the switch. Moreover, advanced technique, 802.1Q-in-Q, is provided and deployed within VLAN feature.

    VigorSwitch G2080 supports higher layer classification / prioritization to activate the enhanced QoS for real-time applications with the information coming from Layer 2 to Layer 4.

    Supervisor Monitoring Network supported by Port Mirroring. The mechanism of port mirroring can track errors in a network or detect abnormal packet transmission but not break down the data flow for it will duplicate data from specified port to another port.


    To fit the request of working on limited small space for SOHO users, the noiseless VigorSwitch G2080 is important to and suitable for them.

    Port trunk is useful for switch-to-switch cascading which can offer high full-duplex speed. To create multi-link load-sharing trunk in a network, the Gigabit ports can be grouped together to reach the purpose. Users can combine up to 4 Gigabit ports for the bandwidth up to 8 Gbps. Moreover, VigorSwitch can support up to 4 trunking groups.

    802.1x features provide authentication for each network access for users. Besides, to control the number of stations for each port, the port security feature allows users to limit the number of MAC address per port. Users can define static MAC address for each port to ensure the access of registered machines. With these two features, users can establish an access mechanism with identifying user and machine, and control the number of access stations easily.

    Users can configure VigorSwitch with a redundant backup bridge path for the mission critical environment with multiple switches supporting STP. Hence, the transmission and reception of packets can be assured in the event of any failover switch on the network.

    Broadcast/multicast storm control is adapted by VigorSwitch to restrict the excess traffic by avoiding broadcast/multicast flooding in the network. Threshold values are available for each port to control the rate limit. Additionally, if the count exceeds the configured upper threshold, the transmitted packets would be discarded.
