Product Overview The VigorSwitch P1280 is a high-performance, Gigabit switch with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) on 24 RJ-45 ports (plus 4 additional Gigabit ports). With the increase in PoE powered devices requiring full power, notably wireless access points and IP cameras, the generous 340W power budget is much higher than many other products in its class.

New DrayTek OS & User Interface
The VigorSwitch P1280 features our latest generation of DrayTek's own switch operating system which is used across our range of enhanced switches. This enables a 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.

Enhanced Feature Set
The P1280'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 P1280 has 24 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.

PoE Devices
The VigorSwitch P1280 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 P1280 supports both standard PoE (802.3af) and High-Power PoE (802.3at) devices. Features • 24+4 Port Gigabit Managed Switch
• PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) for IP phones, wireless access points, IP Cameras etc.
• Generous Power budget (340W total)
• 802.3af (PoE) and 802.3at (High Power PoE)
• 802.3az Power Saving
• 802.1q VLANs (Tag & Port)
• QoS for Application traffic prioritisation
• Voice VLAN for QoS (OUI Mode)
• Access Control List (ACL)
• Port Mirroring & Link Aggregation
• IGMP Snooping/Querier (Up to 256 Multicast Groups)
• IPv4 and IPv6 Support
• Centrally managed or standalone operation

The humble telephone isn’t sitting idly by, however. Telephony is evolving and it is using the Internet to keep up with the competition.
