The VigorSwitch P2260 is a high-performance fully-managed layer 2 Ethernet switch. Its specification is packed with advanced features to aid reliability and switching performance to your network. The P2260 has 26 Ethernet ports (24 Fast Ethernet, 2 Gigabit) and two SFP ports (for fiber connection modules). The units can be stacked, and meaning that up to 16 can be linked and managed from one web interface. Features for Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs and network/switch security provide additional flexibility.
The VigorSwitch P2260 is a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch. The Unused wire pairs on the RJ45 connector are used to carry power to the remote device so that the connected device does not need its own local power supply (e.g. mains adaptor). This is particularly useful for devices such as IP webcams or IP telephones where local power may not be convenient but also where an extra PSU would add unnecessary clutter and increased power consumption.
The DrayTek P2260 has two SFP (fiber module) ports. In comparison to ‘copper’ (RJ45), using fiber for uplinks provides longer range and reliance from electrical interference. Each of the two ports can be used instead of the corresponding copper port (ports 25 and 26). The SFP port provides compatibility with your choice of SFP module and therefore the most appropriate fiber technology for your application.
The VigorSwitch P2260 is a fully managed Layer 2 switch, not a basic ‘Smart Switch’ (which is typically an unmanaged switch with some monitoring/control features). A compressive GUI (web interface) provides intuitive control and monitoring of the switches features.
