High Speed 10 Gigabit SFP+ Uplinks
6 SFP+ ports allow your network to utilise 10Gbps ports to link Switches, Servers and Networked Storage with more bandwidth. This helps you reduce the risk of bottlenecks occurring in your network.

Benefits: Easily increase network throughput and meet demanding bandwidth requirements.

Manage Centrally or Stand-Alone
Configure and monitor the switch through the VigorACS cloud management platform, DrayTek's Central Switch Management for Vigor routers, or directly via the device's Web Interface.

Benefits: Saves time and money. Easily provision, monitor and manage remote sites without on-site IT or dedicated staff.

Great Security Features
Protect your network against unauthorised access and network problems with 802.1X port authentication, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard and Access Control Lists. Check the features sections for more information.

Benefits: Secure & control access to your network.

Advanced Layer 2+ Routing Features
Expand your network with support for Layer 3 features such as Static Routes and VLAN Routing, to connect separate networks through the VigorSwitch.

Benefits: Provides a fast and secure bridge between networks.

400W PoE Power Budget
Provides power through Ethernet to each of the 48 PoE / PoE+ enabled Gigabit LAN ports. PoE scheduling, priority & monitoring features ensure your PoE devices are powered and working.

Benefits: Power a large number of IP cameras, IP phones, wireless APs and other PoE devices.

IP Camera Management
Manage IP Cameras easily with detection and management of ONVIF cameras. Use PoE Device Check, auto-generated IP Camera topology and Camera Snapshots to detect & troubleshoot problems.

Benefits: Easily configure, deploy & manage connected IP Cameras.
