Advanced Layer 2+ Features
DHCP Server & VLAN Routing

Improving Network Sustainability and Efficiency, with or without a Router

In a large network, most traffic goes internally to and from servers rather than out to the Internet. For example, IP cameras store videos to an NVR, IP phones register to a PBX, clients access a file server and so on. With L2+ management, a DHCP server and VLAN routing capabilities, the VigorSwitch P2540x is the perfect companion for your router to help keep your network operating even when the router is offline.

The DHCP server assigns dynamic IP addresses for up to 8 VLANs, and with VLAN routing the VigorSwitch P2540x supports up to 512 routes.

Bind IP Address to MAC Address

Reserve an IP Address for an Important Device

As a DHCP Server, the Layer 2+ VigorSwitch P2540x can reserve IP addresses for important devices that are frequently accessed.


Recognise ONVIF devices in different VLANs, display surveillance topology, provide UI for video streaming and device maintenance

Centralised Hierarchical View

The VigorSwitch P2540x automatically detects ONVIF devices and displays the topology of connected IP cameras and NVRs.

Image Viewing

Images filmed by IP cameras can be viewed directly within the VigorSwitch P2540x web UI.

Device Management

Basic configuration/maintenance tasks for ONVIF devices such as remote reboot, factory reset and changing network settings can all be done remotely from the VigorSwitch P2540x web UI.

ONVIF Snapshot Alert

Locating Non-Responding IP Cameras Made Easy

Managing several IP cameras across different locations and customers are difficult enough without also having to keep on top of any cameras that stop functioning. To help with this, the VigorSwitch P2540x regularly pings ONVIF IP cameras and takes snapshots from them periodically. If one IP camera stops responding, an email alert is sent with the latest snapshot from the camera.

With PoE VigorSwitch models, the switch can also provide first aid by automatically power cycling the particular port to reboot the camera.
