Draytek VigorSwitch G2280
The VigorSwitch G2280 is a L2 managed switch designed for small to medium sized businesses. To cater for high bandwidth traffic, it is equipped with 24 Gigabit Ethernet ports for the LAN side, and 4 combo UTP/SFP ports for the backbone side. VigorSwitch G2280 is equipped with extensive facilities for maximizing your LAN performance, VLAN capability to allow flexible network design, and QoS capability for flexible bandwidth control. Furthermore, the power saving by IEEE802.3az EEE can offer you a green Ethernet networking environment.
VLAN provides a way for businesses to assign network functions to different workgroups, branches, sections, employees or visitors, according to their operational requirements. VigorSwitch G2280 offers the Layer 2 Isolation feature (tag-based) VLAN for the groups. The Voice and Surveillance VLAN of VigorSwitch 2280 assigns a preset VLAN profile with appropriate level of QoS for VoIP traffic to devices of VoIP and Surveillance related. This ensures that voice and camera related traffic will not be delayed because of inappropriate priority treatment.
QoS (Quality of Service)
With DrayTek VigorSwitch 2280, the QoS feature provides eight internal queues to support eight different classifications of traffic. High priority packet streams experience less delay inside the switch, which supports lower latency for certain delay-sensitive traffic. The switch classifies the packet as one of the eight priorities according to 802.1p priority tag, DiffServ and/or DSCP based. The QoS operates at full wire speed.
The VigorSwitch 2280 is fully compliant with IEEE802.3az which is an energy efficient Ethernet protocol. The Power saving using Power Management techniques to detect the client idle and cable length automatically and provides the different power. The latest application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), using lower-power technology, allow for lower power consumption and thinner, more efficient designs.
Advanced network security
Network security is a lifeline for modern day businesses, and is multi-faceted. To maange remote access, VigorSwitch G2280 supports SSH, SSL and SNMPv3 connection with encrypted packet content for each session. To prevent illegal access of data ports, it supports IP Source Guard which blocks illegal IP addresses for accessing specific ports or receiving data packets. To manage access to portbased 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.
The Gigabit ports can be combined together to create a multilink load-sharing trunk. Port trunks are useful for switch-toswitch cascading, providing very high full-duplex speeds. Multicast Efficient for IPv4/IPv6 VigorSwitch 2280 can help you control and minimize the multicast traffic by IGMP/MLD Snooping and Multicast filtering. The IGMP/MLD Snooping listens to whom requesting multicast traffic, and forward these traffic only when needed. Multicast filtering helps you to block unwanted multicast traffic from specific group.
