Power over Ethernet
The VigorSwitch P2280x is a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch, providing power to any PoE-enabled device, most commonly IP phones, wireless access points or IP cameras over the Ethernet cable.
As well as removing the need for local (at the desk) power supplies, making for tidier installations, PoE ensures power efficiency, providing only the power needed, as well as allowing for time schedules for powering up/down and remote rebooting.
Power is provided only when required and allows for installation of devices where there is no mains power, particularly useful for wireless access points such as the ceiling mounted VigorAP 910C.
The P2280x supports both standard PoE (802.3af) and High-Power PoE (802.3at) devices.
10GbE SFP+ Ports for High Speed Uplinks
The DrayTek VigorSwitch P2280x has 4 dedicated SFP+ ports for uplinks, each operating at up to 10 Gigabits per second. The faster 10 Gigabit uplink capability allows you to make high bandwidth links to Network Attached Storage, Servers and other switches, to help reduce the risk of bottlenecks occurring within your network.
The SFP+ ports provide compatibility with your choice of SFP / SFP+ modules (not included) and therefore the most appropriate medium for your application.
Connect a passive Direct Attach SFP+ cable such as the DrayTek DAC-CX10-01M to the SFP+ module port of 1Gbps/10Gbps capable Network Attached Storage, Servers and Switches, for a cost effective, up to 10Gbps network link.
Advanced Layer 2+ Routing Features
The VigorSwitch P2280x adds the Layer 3 features VLAN Routing and Static Route to allow the switch to provide routing between VLANs at high speed. The VigorSwitch's Access Control List allows for full control of what traffic routes between networks.
A DrayTek VigorSwitch normally provides connectivity for multiple network segments with 802.1Q VLAN tags, which separate networks at Layer 2 (MAC level), relying on the router to connect different networks. VLAN Routing in the switch allows for Layer 3 (IP level) routing, to connect and route between different IP subnets with wire speed routing performance.
Routing beyond the VigorSwitch P2280x, to the Internet and across VPNs is possible with Static Routes, using the switch to direct traffic to remote subnets through the correct gateway. Up to 512 static routes can be configured on the switch.
Power over Ethernet Management
The VigorSwitch P2280x has 24 PoE ports with a power budget of up to 400 watts for all connected PoE devices, allowing up to 30 watts per port (802.3at).
In the event that the PoE power usage exceeds the power budget of the switch, important devices can be given priority so that they remain on. Less important devices can be turned off by the switch, to ensure constant operation of essential systems.
Set time schedules to turn connected PoE devices on/off at certain times of the day, for instance turning off wireless access points overnight.
Save power and prevent network access outside of the set operation times.
Quality of Service & Bandwidth Control
Prioritise latency-sensitive applications on your network with Quality of Service (802.1p and DSCP) support.
Control throughput per-port with Rate Limiting and application specific Traffic Shaping.
Network Security and Management Features
Stay in control of what's connected to your network with Port Security and 802.1X & MAC authentication, to prevent connection of unauthorised equipment.
Protect against network issues arising from connection of unwanted devices with DHCP Snooping and IP Source Guard.
Control port access for every port on your network with the VigorSwitch Access Control List - to specifically allow or deny specified traffic types moving between ports, just like a Firewall.
AAA - 802.1X Authentication
Control access to LAN ports through a RADIUS server, which could be provided by the Vigor 2862 router on site. Authenticate and authorise network access via 802.1X, MAC address or web authentication. Track data and time usage of each user authenticated with RADIUS Accounting.
Management Authentication via RADIUS, TACACS+ or local accounts
Control logins to the switch management with the switch's internal user accounts or through a central RADIUS / TACACS+ server.
The VigorSwitch P2280x has extensive IPv6 support, with IPv6 ACL, MLD Snooping and IPv6 DNS Resolution.
Filter IPv6 packets with the Access Control List (ACL) alongside IPv4 traffic.
Use IPv6 MLD Snooping to control and more efficiently manage Multicast packets in the same way that IGMP Snooping would for IPv4 Multicast packets.
Voice VLAN & Surveillance (IP Camera) VLAN
|Automatically assign VLANs and QoS configuration to devices with matching MAC address OUI (manufacturer identifier i.e. 00-1D-AA-00-11-22 = DrayTek) upon connection to the switch.|
|Limit DHCP server responses to only a specified port to stop unauthorised devices from affecting network connectivity.|
IP Source Guard
|Protects against address spoofing by comparing packets received with either statically configured source IP addresses or addresses learned from DHCP snooping.|
Access Control List
|Similar to a firewall, the ACL can control which packet types (IPv4, IPv6 & MAC) are allowed to pass between ports on the switch.|
Link Aggregation - Port Trunking
|Use two or more network links to connect the VigorSwitch P2280x and another switch / server. Traffic can be shared between the two ports, effectively doubling the bandwidth of the uplink and providing resilience should one of the links fail.|
Improved Jumbo Frame
|The VigorSwitch P2280x supports Ethernet packets up to 12 Kilobytes in size, to further improve throughput and increase the efficiency of packet transmission across your network.|
|Send sFlow data from the VigorSwitch P2280x to an sFlow Collector to analyse traffic passing through the switch.|
The DrayTek VigorSwitch P2280x can operate in standalone mode and be managed through its web interface or, if you need to manage and monitor the switch remotely, or have several DrayTek VigorSwitches to administer, you can centrally manage and monitor them either with:
Managing a VigorSwitch through VigorACS
DrayTek's VigorACS central management system provides a centralised way to manage and view the status of any DrayTek Vigor router, VigorAP access point and VigorSwitch connected to the VigorACS server.
DrayTek VigorSwitch switches that support TR-069 management can be managed through DrayTek VigorACS 2 in the same way that a DrayTek Vigor router or VigorAP access point would be managed. Through VigorACS, you can view and manage; a single VigorSwitch, all switches on a site or all switches across an entire network spanning multiple sites in one place.
DrayTek VigorSwitches connected to VigorACS connect directly to the VigorACS server to be managed, the router or network that they are connected to needs no additional configuration beyond the VigorSwitch having access to the Internet (or if your VigorACS server is located across a private WAN / VPN connection, access to that network).
View the state of a VigorSwitch through the Dashboard, with PoE usage, uptime and connected ports all visible in one place:
View the configuration of a VigorSwitch and make changes to the configuration through VigorACS, then copy the settings from that switch to apply them to multiple VigorSwitch switches:
Central Switch Management with a DrayTek Vigor Router
DrayTek Vigor router Central Switch Management provisions and monitors VigorSwitch switches through a DrayTek Vigor router, with profiles that can be applied to multiple switches and VLAN configuration all handled within the router.
Central Switch Management requires firmware support on both the VigorSwitch and the DrayTek Vigor router*
*requires 3.9.1 firmware update
This can simplify the setup of multiple subnets and VLANs, without needing in-depth knowledge of VLAN tagging and reduces setup time, with the time consuming step of configuring VLANs for each port handled by the router instead.
The Switch Hierarchy view provides a visual overview of interconnections between DrayTek VigorSwitch switches with the devices connected to each LAN port:
Switch Management Profiles
Switch Management profiles can be used configure schedules to enable or disable ports (including PoE) and set bandwidth limits for the ports. Descriptive names can be configured on the router which can be seen from the Switch Hierarchy view:
VLAN configuration of a VigorSwitch can be provisioned from the DrayTek Vigor router, with the router automatically configuring the Uplink port and being aware of the VLAN tags that the Vigor router and the connected LAN port have available:
DrayTek VigorSwitch Operating System
The VigorSwitch P2280x features our latest generation of DrayTek's own switch operating system which is used across our range of enhanced switches. This enables a consistent user-experience and look-and-feel so that once you're familiar with one model, the others feel the same.
The new UI is designed to be intuitive and efficient, whilst providing access to all of the product's advanced features.
The Dashboard view displays an overview of port usage, power usage and other important details in one place.
Hardware Monitoring & Smart Fan Control
The VigorSwitch P2280x ensures safe and continuous operation with Hardware Monitoring. Track and graph switch temperature, voltages and fan status. View this information locally through the web interface or remotely through VigorACS central management.
Smart Fan control ensures the switch increases its fan speed as required, slowing down the fans at lower operating temperatures and PoE power loads.
This allows the switch to notify you if a fan fails, if the PoE usage is too high, or the switch's temperature exceeds its operating limit. For instance sending an email alert if the switch overheats for any reason.
Should the switch overheat, it can temporarily reduce its PoE power budget to cool down and continue powering critical devices, automatically resuming normal service and full PoE power budget once the switch returns to a safe temperature.
ONVIF IP Camera Management
The VigorSwitch P2280x is able to discover and manage ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compatible IP cameras and NVR systems, allowing for easy discovery and management of your IP cameras on the network.
Simply connect ONVIF capable devices to the VigorSwitch P2280x, then Discover devices, the VigorSwitch determines the network topology of connected cameras & NVR systems. The switch can aid in the maintenance of an IP camera network, with port throughput overusage notifications and the Device Ping Check, to restart connected PoE IP cameras if they stop responding.
Through the VigorSwitch web interface, you can view the video feed of discovered and authenticated IP cameras, check firmware and device information, and modify the IP address settings of connected ONVIF devices.
Camera Management - Topology view
The ONVIF Topology automatically determines where IP cameras and NVR systems are connected into your network, summarising the network status of each and any Power over Ethernet issues that may be detected:
IP Conflict Prevention
DrayTek's IP Conflict Prevention system is an easy way to ensure that the switch protects against IP conflicts and ARP spoofing. Once configured, the switch monitors and notifies of IP conflicts, giving a visual reference of possible causes for network issues.
The IP Conflict Prevention wizard catalogues the current network layout, giving you the option to fix the IP address and MAC information for important network devices, such as Servers and Routers. If another device attempts to use the IP address, the switch and network will continue to communicate with the correct device instead of the unknown device.
Energy Efficient Ethernet
The VigorSwitch P2280x supports Energy Efficient Ethernet, to lower the overall power usage of the switch when ports are idle or disconnected.
The IEEE 802.3az standard allows individual Ethernet links to enter a low power state, when not transmitting or not plugged in, drawing less energy than if the ports were to run at full speed at all times.
With smart power management for Power over Ethernet, drawing only as much power as needed together with 802.3az compliance. If a non-PoE device is connected, that port's PoE power is turned off which also avoids any potential damage to non-compliant devices.
IP Camera Management of ONVIF IP Cameras
Manage and view the video feed of automatically detected ONVIF IP Cameras connected to the VigorSwitch:
Port Bandwidth Usage
Display live usage data of all ports on the switch, showing the quantity of data transmitted and received on each port, with the percentage displayed along with the port's speed:
i.e. 900mbps would be displayed as 90% usage for a 1Gpbs port
50mbps would be displayed as 50% usage for a 100Mbps port
Dynamic MAC table
View devices connected to each port from the Dynamic MAC table, which displays the known MAC address and their respective VLANs for each port on the switch:
Port Bandwidth Limits
Configure bandwidth limits for each LAN port, with Egress rates controlling a client's download speed from the switch and Ingress rates controlling a client's upload speed to the switch.
Quickly create single or multiple VLAN groups. To create multiple VLANs at once, specify multiple VLAN tags separated by commas, or as a range of VLANs (i.e. 3-5 would create VLANs 3, 4 and 5):
