VigorSwitch P2261 - 24+2 Port Managed Switch with High-Power PoE

The VigorSwitch P2261 is a high-performance, fully-managed, layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch with PoE (Power over Ethernet). Its 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 P2261 has 20 standard (RJ45/copper) Gigabit Ethernet Ports, four selectable ports (can be either RJ45 or SFP) and two dedicated SFP ports (for fibre connection modules). Features for Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs and network/switch security provide additional flexibility.

The VigorSwitch P2261 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 so making for tidier installations, PoE ensures power efficiency, providing only the power needed, as well as allowing for time schedules for powering up/down. 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 P2261 supports both standard PoE (802.3af) and High-Power PoE (802.3at) devices.

A 'Single IP Management' facility enabled you to have 32 VigorSwitch P2261 or G2260 units on the same local subnet and access the web interface of each from a single interface (IP address), moving quickly from one to another rather than having to log into each switch individually.

SFP Ports on DrayTek vigorSwitch P2261

The DrayTek P2261 has 6 SFP (Fibre Module) ports. Four of the ports can be used instead of the correspondning RJ45 (copper) port No.s 21-24; the other two SFP ports are independent. In comparison to 'copper' (RJ45), using fibre for uplinks provides longer range and reliience from electrical interference. The SFP port provides compatibility with your choice of SFP module (not included) and therefore the most appropriate fibre technology for your application.

In the photo (right) you can see two SFP ports in use, with SFP module installed and fibre optic cables connected and also a spare SFP module on top of the unit (not connected).
