VigorSwitch G2540x


10-Gigabit Managed Switch with 6 10Gb SFP+ and 48 GB ports

Key Features & Benefits

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.

Hardware Monitoring

It monitors and controls the switch's temperature and operating voltages . Email notification alerts integrated for power loss, downtime or configuration changes.

Benefits: Prevents network failure. Ensures high availability.

IP Camera Management

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

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

VigorSwitch G2540x

10GbE Gigabit Switch with 48 Gigabit Ports & 6 10GbE SFP+ Uplink Ports

VigorSwitch G2540x is a 54 port Gigabit L2+ Managed switch with a plethora of management options and enterprise-level features to improve network stability and security for businesses.

Use the 4 switchable SFP/RJ-45 ports and 2 dedicated SFP module slots to link with additional switches using link aggregation, or plug in a suitable SFP module to use optical Fibre as an Ethernet uplink.

Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch G2540x can be provisioned and monitored through both the VigorACS management platform and/or, a DrayTek Vigor router’s Central Switch Management. Easily provision the VLAN configuration through the router and clone switch configurations. Drastically reduce the setup time required for a complex network, with VLANs spanning multiple switches.
