VigorSwitch P2280 is designed for SMB business network that runs various network applications. The 24 PoE+ Ethernet ports are perfect for a network with wireless AP, IP phones, and IP surveillance. VigorSwitch P2280 provides the auto Voice VLAN and QoS feature help to improve the VoIP call quality on the network. All the ports of VigorSwitch P2280 are capable of gigabit speeds, Link Aggregation can be set up to increase the throughput even more and build a more reliable network.





24 PoE+ Capable Ports

All the 24 Ethernet ports of VigorSwitch P2280 are compatible with 802.3at and 802.3af standard, and provide up to 30W per port to network devices such as wireless access points, IP phones, and IP surveillance. This reduces the need for power cables and adapters, which lowers the cost of installation, as well as offers the flexibility to install those devices, not being limited by where the power outlets are. 

The VigorSwitch P2280 helps you build a green networking by offering power-saving features, such as IEEE 802.3az (Energy-Efficient Ethernet), which allows the switch to dynamically adjust the power on each port according to the client activity and cable length, and PoE Scheduling allows you to schedule a power on/off on selected ports, to turn off the devices that are not in use and save electricity.



Flexible VLAN Options

With VigorSwitch P2280, you may segment the physical local area network (LAN) into the smaller logical network (VLAN) and limits the traffic within that segment, this allows the administrator to control the LAN access and eliminates unnecessary network traffic. VigorSwitch P2280 supports various types of identifying the VLAN of traffic, including port-based, tag-based, protocol-based, and MAC-based. Voice VLAN and Surveillance VLAN are also supported so that traffic from an IP phone or an IP camera can be identified automatically without the need of specifying each of their MAC address. The respective QoS (Quality of Service) policy can be applied easily, so that the call and video quality can be optimized.


Network Security

To save the LAN bandwidth, VigorSwitch P2280 has integrated security features to prevent the local network being overloaded by superfluous traffic, such as Storm Control to limit the amount of broadcast and multicast traffic on each port, and DoS Defense to protect the network being flooded by malicious requests. And VigorSwitch P2280 provides methods to avoid IP conflicts, including IP Source Guard, ARP inspection, and DHCP Snooping. Moreover, VigorSwitch P2280 supports 802.1x port access control to block un-authorized users from connecting to the network.


Improving Performance by QoS

When the traffic is heavy on the LAN, QoS can improve the LAN network performance by allowing the critical or delay-sensitive traffic to pass first. VigorSwitch P2280 supports traffic classifying by 802.1p CoS, DSCP, and IP Precedence. VigorSwitch P2280 is especially ideal for a network which is going to deploy IP cameras and IP phones, with Auto Voice VLAN and Auto Surveillance VLAN feature, call and video traffic can be identified automatically and be assigned the desired class easily. On VigorSwitch P2280, you can have up to 8 traffic queues with customized weight.



Speed up the network by Link Aggregation

If cascading more switches are required, link aggregation will provide the network higher throughput and link redundancy. VigorSwitch P2280 supports link aggregation by both static configuration and LACP (Link Aggregation Control Protocol), up to 8 Link Aggregation Group can be set up on VigorSwitch P2280, and each of the group can have up to 8 port members.


Easy Setup & Monitoring

VigorSwitch P2280 has adopted a brand-new interface design which will make configuration and management much easier. The new dashboard shows the status of the system and each of LAN ports at a glance. Furthermore, the responsive web design allows Network Administrator to monitor the switch effortlessly via all kinds of devices. (Check the GUI of VigorSwitch P2280 from Live Demo). Command-Line Interface (CLI) is also provided via Telnet or SSH, and standard monitoring methods are supported including SNMP, RMON, and Syslog.



Central Management of Vigor Router

VigorSwitch P2280 is compliant with Central Management feature of Vigor Router. It can be managed through the Vigor Router’s management page, this allows Network Administrator to provision, configure, monitor, and maintain all the switches on the network easily from one single portal.
