Features and benefits


  • Simple Web management

Allows for easy management of the switch even by nontechnical users through an intuitive Web GUI; supports HTTP and HTTP Secure (HTTPS)

  • Secure Web GUI

Provides a secure, easy-to-use graphical interface for configuring the switch via HTTPS

  • SNMPv1, v2c, and v3

Facilitates management of the switch, as the device can be discovered and monitored from an SNMP management station

  • Port mirroring

Enables traffic on a port to be simultaneously sent to a network analyzer for monitoring

  • Default DHCP Client mode

Allows the switch to be directly connected to a network, enabling plug-and-play operation; in absence of a DHCP server on the network, the switch will fall back to a unique static address determined by the switch’s MAC address

  • Network Time Protocol (NTP)

Synchronizes timekeeping among distributed time servers and clients; keeps timekeeping consistent among all clock-dependent devices within the network so that the devices can provide diverse applications based on the consistent time

  • Manual network time configuration

Manually set the date and time on the switch in the absence of a NTP server

  • Dual flash images

Provide independent primary and secondary operating system files for backup while upgrading

Quality of service (QoS)

  • IEEE 802.1p prioritization with DSCP

Delivers data from the switch to devices based on the priority and type of traffic using Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP)

  • Broadcast control

Allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic

  • Rate limiting

Sets per-port ingress enforced maximums and per-port, per-queue minimums


  • Auto-MDI/MDIX

Automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all ports

  • IEEE 802.3X Flow Control

Provides a flow throttling mechanism propagated through the network to prevent packet loss at a congested node

  • Loopback detection

If the switch detects a loop, it disables the source port from forwarding data packets originating from the switch to avoid broadcast storms

  • Energy                                        Efficient                                         Ethernet Compliant with IEEE 802.3az standard requirements to save energy during periods of low data activity
  • Port power save mode

Enables a port to operate at the lowest transmission speed or go down during a specific time range on certain days of a week. The port resumes when the effective time period ends

  • Cable test

Performs a check on the status of the cable connected to an Ethernet port on the device. The test determines whether a short circuit or open circuit is present on the cable and the approximate length to the fault in the cable



  • Half- and full-duplex auto-negotiating capability on every port doubles the throughput of every port
  • IGMP Snooping, v1, v2, and v3

Improves network performance through multicast filtering, instead of flooding traffic to all ports


Layer 2 switching

  • VLAN support and tagging

Supports IEEE 802.1Q with 4,096 simultaneous VLAN IDs

  • Jumbo frame support

Supports up to 10 kilobyte frame size to improve the performance of large data transfers

Resiliency and high availability

  • Link aggregation

Groups together multiple ports (up to a maximum of eight ports per trunk) automatically using Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), or manually, to form an ultra-high-bandwidth connection to the network backbone; helps prevent traffic

bottlenecks. Note: 8 port model support 4 trunks, 24 port model support 8 trunks, and the 48 port model support 16 trunks.

Warranty and support

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

This series comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty providing advance hardware replacement with next business day shipment in most countries, 24x7 phone support available for the first 90 days, and electronic and business hours phone support for the entire warranty period.
