PoE for Efficient Installation

24-PoE ports allow power to be supplied to end devices, such as Wireless Access Points IP Phones and IP cams, directly through the existing LAN cables, eliminating costs for additional AC wiring and reducing Installation Cost. It frees your wireless AP deployment from restriction due to power outlet location. By supplying the power end-span, you can centralize power distribution and backup without the need to increase infrastructure.


Advanced Network Security

Network security is a lifeline for modern day businesses and is multi-faceted. To manage remote access, VigorSwitch P2261 supports SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connection with encrypted packet content for each session. To prevent illegal access to data ports, it supports IP Source Guard which blocks illegal IP addresses for accessing specific ports or receiving data packets. To manage access to port-based network devices, it supports IEEE 802.1x port security standard. And, to prevent illegal logins, it supports Access Control List (ACL) function, ensuring only authorized users can access designated network resources.


Virtual VLAN

VLAN provides a way for businesses to assign network functions to different workgroups, branches, sections, employees or visitors, according to their operational requirements. VigorSwitch P2261 offers the Layer 2 Isolation feature (tag-based) VLAN for the groups. You can also use network devices' MAC addresses for the VLAN profiles (MAC-based VLAN). The Voice VLAN function of VigorSwitch P2261 assigns a preset VLAN profile with an appropriate level of QoS for VoIP traffic. This ensures that voice related traffic will not be delayed because of busy traffic.


Quality of Service for Traffic Prioritization

VigorSwitch P2261 is equipped with advanced QoS features to ensure that traffic of different applications is treated with the desired priorities. It offers classification types including port based, 802.1p VLAN priority based, IPv6/IPv4 precedence, type of services (ToS), DSCP based, DiffServ classification and remarking ACLs, Trusted QoS, etc. There are 8 priority levels based on 8 hardware queues, and these can be linked to a time schedule.


Easy Configuration & Connectivity

With the increasing number of mobile devices joining PCs and servers in the business environment, the configuration of network switches can be complicated. VigorSwitch P2261 comes with preset options for network devices such as IP phone, IP camera, Wireless devices, etc. The web-based configuration pages allow you to just select the well-sorted options, such as security and network features (ACL, IP Source Guard, VLAN, QoS, etc.) as required. VigorSwitch P2261 supports Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) features, making it easy to connect network devices including PC, server, IP phone, IP camera, Wireless AP, etc. And with the ample number of Gigabit Ethernet ports on the LAN side and the UTP/FTP ports on the backbone side, these features make building up of business network infrastructure a lot simpler.


More Benefits

Following DrayTek's green product policies, VigorSwitch P2261 complies with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standards. When it detects that the network is idle it will turn into Sleep mode. Also, it detects the cable length automatically and sends the packets with just enough power for the devices. In this way, it saves power consumption costs, being environmentally friendly while maintaining high-performance levels.

Often the network administrators need to monitor data flow on each port for the purpose of accounting, billing for usage, security checking, performance optimization, etc. VigorSwitch P2261 supports sFlow sampling protocol, allowing monitoring of network traffic without interrupting data flow or compromising traffic performance.
