PoE (Power over Ethernet)
Deliver power and data over one ethernet cable, turn PoE devices on/off periodically with PoE Schedule.
QoS (Quality of Service)
Improve the performance of critical traffic by prioritizing the traffic with CoS, DSCP, and IP Precedence tag.
PoE Device Check
Enable Ping Watchdog for all PoE devices. If they lose their network connection, automatically restart them with a power cycle.
Provides 10G-capable fiber SFP ports for aggregation or uplinking to the core switches.
Auto Surveillance & Voice VLAN
Recognize traffic from IP cameras and IP phones automatically and add CoS tag for QoS prioritization.
Recognize the ONVIF devices, display surveillance topology, provide UI for video streaming and device maintenance. Learn more
VigorSwitch P2540x supports IPv6 by offering MLD Snooping, IPv6 ACL, and IPv6 DNS Resolver.
Wire-Speed VLAN Routing
Improve overall network performance by using VigorSwitch P2540x to route the inter-VLAN traffic directly and offload the router.
Easily manage and monitor the network through the web-based console with graphics showing ports and hardware status. See demo
IP Conflict Prevention
Improve network stability by avoiding IP conflicts caused by a misconfigured or malicious host. Learn more
Multiple Admin Accounts
Multiple Admin accounts with two levels of administrator privilege.
VigorSwitch P2540x supports ACL by IP/MAC and 802.1x port access control with RADIUS to filter unauthorized hosts.
Central Switch Management
Set up VLAN easily from the router and get a centralized hierarchy view of the switches. Learn more
Compliant with IEEE 802.3az to reduce power consumption.
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.
Images filmed by IP cameras can be viewed directly within the VigorSwitch P2540x web UI.
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.
