The VigorSwitch G1241 is a 24-port Gigabit Ethernet Web Smart switch with high-performance capability and IPv6 management. It is equipped with extensive facilities for maximizing your LAN performance and also enhancing security such as VLAN groups (port or tag based), QoS prioritization and bandwidth/traffic control. The VigorSwitch G1241 is designed with CLI interface for flexibility. It is compliant with IEEE 802.1d Spanning Tree and it supports Loop detection for maintenance. In compliance with IEEE802.3az EEE for low power consumption, you can set up a green Ethernet networking environment. Through VigorSwitch G1241, your business network will be able to obtain high performance and advanced networking quality to deliver all networking communications and data over a single network. With an intuitive and web-based user interface, your network administrator can simplify deployment, and apply Port Security and Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization to your business network.
QoS (Quality of Service)
With DrayTek VigorSwitch G1241, the QoS feature provides eight internal queues to support eight different classifications of traffic. High priority packet streams experience less delay inside the switch, which supports lower latency for certain delay-sensitive traffic. The switch classifies the packet as one of the eight priorities according to 802.1p priority tag,
DiffServ and/or DSCP based. The QoS operates at full wire speed.
Port Mirroring mechanism helps track network errors or abnormal packet transmission without interrupting the flow of data, allowing ingress traffic (RX mode) to be monitored by a single port that is defined as mirror capture port. Up to N-1 (N is Switch’s Ports) can be mirrored to single destination port. A single session is supported.
The Gigabit ports can be combined together to create a multi-link load-sharing trunk. Up to 8 Gigabit ports can be set up per group. The switch supports up to 8 trunking groups.
Port trunks are useful for switch-to-switch cascading, providing very high full-duplex speeds.
The Web User Interface of VigorSwitch provides you with configuration, system dashboard, maintenance, and monitoring. The Dual Image gives you independent primary and secondary OS files for backup while upgrading. With SNMP version 2c, your network administrator can remotely configure VigorSwitch G1241 and other DrayTek Switches in the network. The VigorSwitch G1241 has hardware button to reboot device and reset to default for recovery and maintenance.
The VigorSwitch G1241 is fully compliant with IEEE802.3az which is an energy efficient Ethernet protocol. The Power saving using Power Management techniques to detect the client idle and cable length automatically and provides the different power. The latest application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), using lower-power technology, allow for lower power consumption and thinner, more efficient designs.
1) Central Switch Management
Central Switch Management is available through a supported Vigor router such as Vigor2860 series, Vigor2925 series, Vigor2952 and Vigor3220 series routers. It provides a convenient and easy way to manage and configure VigorSwitches. Instead of logging into each of these switches and work through the configuration pages, you can log into the router that has integrated configuration pages with all linked VigorSwitches. For instance you can create VLANs to provide a number of virtual networks within an organization, or to view status of attached switches from within the router console. This will simplify the configuration tasks and reduce troubleshooting efforts.
Integrated Functions with Vigor Router
Many network functions rely on interworking between the router and the switches; therefore DrayTek has designed integrated configuration pages for Vigor2860 series, Vigor2925 series, Vigor2952 and Vigor3220 series to interwork with VigorSwitches.
VigorACS SI (Future Feature)
You will be able to manage and configure VigorSwitches from a TR-069 based centralized management system.
2) Multi-Workgroup Deployment
Use VLANs to secure your network by creating logical workgroups. VLANs can span over multiple switches so workgroups can be located in different physical locations or floors within a building. For example, a Sales Department may be located on the 1st floor of a building, but some of the sales people are located on the second floor and still be part of the sales VLAN.
The IEEE 802.1q VLAN trunk feature means that only a single LAN cable connection is required between the router and the switch, and/or between the switches, is sufficient to create a number of VLANs for different departments.
3) Bandwidth Aggregation
Increase bandwidth between VigorSwitches by aggregating multiple switch ports to form load-sharing trunk groups. The switches can be cascaded in Daisy Chain or Star topology to provide high speed data links. The connections can be with Ethernet cables or Fibre cables.
4) Network Traffic Analysis
Network traffic can be monitored or analyzed by utilizing the Port Mirroring function in VigorSwitches. This is a handy diagnostic tool for forwarding ingress/egress traffic (RX/TX) to a switch monitor port for analysis by a network analyzer or anadministrator.
5) Prioritising of Traffic
DrayTek VigorSwitches Quality of Service (QoS) feature provides eight queues to classify traffic types according to 802.1p VLAN priority tag, DiffServ and/or DSCP based. You can prioritize traffic type based on the traffic’s tolerance to network delays. Applications such as VoIP or Video Conferencing, both requiring real time data delivery, can be prioritized to ensure satisfactory operation.
