DrayTek VigorSwitch G1280 Smart Managed 24 Gigabit Ports & 4 SFP Ports

The VigorSwitch G1280 is a high-performance, Smart Managed Gigabit Ethernet switch. With 24 RJ-45 Gigabit LAN ports, it's ideal for adding network ports to a DrayTek Vigor router, implementing complex networks with VLANs and adding port-level security with the switch's Access Control List.

Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch G1280 can be provisioned and monitored with the VigorACS management platform, the free VigorConnect single site management system and/or, with a DrayTek Vigor router’s Central Switch Management. Easily provision VLAN configuration through the router and clone switch configurations. Drastically reduce the setup time required for a complex network and configure an entire DrayTek network remotely.
