Product Overview VigorSwitch P2121 - 12 Port Gigabit Switch with PoE
The VigorSwitch P2121 is a high-performance, Managed Gigabit Ethernet switch with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) on 8 RJ-45 ports. With the increase in PoE powered devices requiring full power, notably wireless access points and IP cameras, the generous 140W power budget is much higher than many other products in its class without fan cooling.

Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch P2121 can be provisioned and monitored through both the VigorACS management platform and/or, a DrayTek Vigor router’s Central Switch Management. Easily provision the VLAN configuration through the router and clone switch configurations. Drastically reduce the setup time required for a complex network, with VLANs spanning multiple switches.

The switch can be used simply on a desk, or securely fitted to a wall / shelf, or rack mounted (1u) with the included mounting brackets.

The DrayTek VigorSwitch P2121 has 4 Gigabit SFP module ports which can be used instead of the corresponding RJ-45 ports Nos. 9-12. SFP slots are typically used for fibre transceivers. In comparison to 'copper' (RJ-45) cables, using fibre for connectivity provides longer range and resilience from electrical interference.

The SFP ports provides compatibility with your choice of SFP modules (not included) and therefore the most appropriate medium for your application. If you use the SFP slots, then the corresponding copper port is not active but the others remain available.

The VigorSwitch P2121's Serial (RS232) Console port and SSH server allow for configuration and management of the VigorSwitch through its fully featured command line interface (CLI).

New DrayTek VigorSwitch OS & User Interface
The VigorSwitch P2121 features our latest generation of DrayTek's own switch operating system which is used across our range of enhanced switches.

Consistent user-experience and look-and-feel so that once you're familiar with one model, the others feel the same. The new UI is designed to be intuitive and efficient, whilst providing access to all of the product's advanced features.

The Dashboard view displays an overview of port usage, power usage and other important details in one place.

Network Security and Management Features
The VigorSwitch P2121's specification is packed with advanced features to aid reliability and switching performance to your network and is ready for the next generation with both IPv4 and IPv6 support.

The P2121 has 8 standard (RJ45/copper) Gigabit Ethernet Ports, all with PoE+ and four selectable ports (which can be set to either RJ-45 or SFP slots). Features for Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs and network/switch security provide additional flexibility.

Central Management
The DrayTek VigorSwitch P2121 can operate in standalone mode and be managed through its web interface or, if you need to manage and monitor the switch remotely, or have several DrayTek VigorSwitches to administer, you can centrally manage and monitor them either with:
- A DrayTek router which supports switch management
- DrayTek's VigorACS management platform

Power over Ethernet
The VigorSwitch P2121 is a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch, providing power to any PoE-enabled device, most commonly IP phones, wireless access points or IP cameras over the Ethernet cable.

As well as removing the need for local (at the desk) power supplies, making for tidier installations, PoE ensures power efficiency, providing only the power needed, as well as allowing for time schedules for powering up/down and remote rebooting. Power is provided only when required. PoE also allows for installation of devices where there is no mains power (particularly useful for wireless access points).

The P2121 supports both standard PoE (802.3af), with 15.4 watts per port and High-Power PoE (802.3at) with up to 30 watts per device / port.

Power over Ethernet Management
The VigorSwitch P2121 has a power budget for PoE of up to 140watts spread across RJ-45 ports 1 to 8, which allows for all ports to be used for PoE (dependent on each device's power requirements). For example, if you were using our PoE-powered VigorAP 910C wireless access points, they typically use up to 12 watts, so well within the P2121's budget if you had 8 of them connected.

You can also set time schedules so that PoE devices are turned on/off at certain times of the day, saving power and preventing network access outside of the set operation times.

The Device Check feature can monitor connectivity to a device / remote IP - if it stops responding, for instance an IP camera stops transmitting - the VigorSwitch will automatically power cycle the port it's connected to, allowing it to restart and work normally again.

With smart power management, drawing only as much power as needed together with 802.1az compliance. If a non-PoE device is connected, that port's PoE power is turned off which also avoids any potential damage to non-compliant devices. Ports 9-12 can be used to link to routers / switches and do not provide PoE. Features • 8+4 Port Gigabit Managed Switch.

It’s good to talk, but the way in which we get in touch with each other is changing. When once a letter, or a phone call over a shared line were the only ways to keep in touch with friends and relatives, there is now e-mail, instant messaging and text messages. The humble telephone isn’t sitting idly by, however. Telephony is evolving and it is using the Internet to keep up with the competition.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.
