DrayTek is introducing 10G fully managed switches

Scale the future bandwidth demands at an ultra-competitive price.

VigorSwitch 1-G Switches

London, August 15, 2019 - Leading business-class networking solutions manufacturer DrayTek UK this week announced the latest additions to their product portfolio, the VigorSwitch P2280x and the VigorSwitch G2280x. These high performance, fully managed 10G network switches come with four 10Gb SFP+ ports, powerful monitoring features and a wide range of security protocols at an ultra-competitive price.

With IoT data production and consumption doubling every 18 months, effective switching is essential to handle the exponential growth of network traffic. DrayTek's fully managed 10G switches are built with demand and infrastructure in mind and designed to meet current and future bandwidth needs.

The VigorSwitch P2280x and the VigorSwitch G2280x switches are capable of multiplicity in connecting separate networks with advanced Layer 2+ routing features, supporting Layer 3 features such as Static Routes and VLAN Routing, with superior security features that can be expected of a business-class DrayTek network switch; with 802.1X port authentication, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard and Access Control Lists. The VigorSwitch P2280x model also features PoE+ with an ample 400W power budget through each of the LAN ports, capable of powering PoE devices such as IP Phones, IP Cameras and Access Points.

"The addition of the VigorSwitch P2280x and G2280x to the switch range allows DrayTek to provide a deeper and more tailored solution set to a wider audience. Businesses today are relying on the power, speed, and efficiency of their network - and the new 10G models meet the demand for high-performance, versatility and scale." says Julian Hubble, Sales & Marketing Director, DrayTek UK.

Both the P2280x and the G2280x have 4 dedicated SFP+ ports for uplinks, each operating at up to 10 Gigabits per second, offering enormous power and flexibility in network structure and allowing for high bandwidth links to Network Attached Storage, Servers and other switches to avoid bottlenecking through network traffic. They can operate in standalone mode and be managed through a web interface or, if you need to manage and monitor the switch remotely, you can configure the switch seamlessly through the VigorACS, DrayTek's Central Management Platform.

VigorSwitch P2280x and G2280x are at the heart of network efficiency.

VigorSwitch P2280x & VigorSwitch G2280x Features
