DrayTek VigorSwitch G1280 28-Port Gigabit Switch
The VigorSwitch G1280 is a high-performance, Gigabit smart switch with 24 Gigabit RJ-45 ports and 4 additional Gigabit RJ-45/SFP ports.
Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch G1280 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.
The DrayTek VigorSwitch G1280 has 4 Gigabit SFP module ports which can be used instead of the corresponding RJ-45 ports Nos. 25-28. SFP slots are typically used for fibre transceivers. In comparison to ‘copper’ (RJ-45) cables, using fibre for connectivity provides longer range and resilience from electrical interference.
The SFP ports provides compatibility with your choice of SFP modules (not included) and therefore the most appropriate medium for your application. If you use the SFP slots, then the corresponding copper port is not active but the others remain available.
Ports 25-28 can be used as RJ-45 or SFP
The DrayTek VigorSwitch G1280 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:
- A DrayTek router which supports switch management
(connected directly to the switch)and / or
- DrayTek’s VigorACS management platform
For details on both of these options, see the “Central Management” tab
DrayTek VigorSwitch OS & User Interface
The Web interface of the switch shows a static snapshot visual representation of port status.
You can click on any port for in-depth status and statistics.
The VigorSwitch G1280 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.
Enhanced Feature Set
The G1280’s specification is packed with advanced features to aid reliability and switching performance to your network and is ready for the next generation with both IPv4 and IPv6 support.
