The DrayTek P2280 VigorSwitch 24-Port Managed Gigabit PoE+ Switch 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.
VigorSwitch P2280 offers features that help to build a secure business network, such as VLAN, Port Isolation, Storm Control, and DoS Defense. While allowing visitors to connect to the network for Internet access, these features help to block the visitors’ access to business network resources and protect the network from being exhausted by malicious traffic.
Voice VLAN to improve call quality
The Voice VLAN feature allows VigorSwitch P2280 to automatically identify the traffic from a VoIP device and assign their source port to a separate VLAN. This allows the switch to efficiently give VoIP traffic a higher priority over others, thus to ensure the best call quality.
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.
24 PoE+ Capable Ports
All the 24 Ethernet ports of VigorSwitch P2280 are compatible with 802.3at and 802.3af standard, 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.
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. 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 configure, monitor, and maintain all the switches on the network easily from one single portal.
