VigorSwitch Series


The VigorSwitch series of Ethernet switches from DrayTek provides your network with the solid backbone required to connect all of your wired devices and backbone connectivity.

All models in the DrayTek VigorSwitch series are Gigabit speed (1000BaseT) and include unmanaged, smart managed and fully layer 2 managed options, with additional L3 filtering capabilities. The wide range of features enables you to plan and maintain and efficient and reliable network infrastructure. PoE-equipped switches are available to supply power to PoE-enabled devices such as wireless access points, IP phones and IP cameras.

Unmanaged, Smart Managed and Full L2 Management

For the very simplest of applications where you simply need reliable and full performance connectivity, an unmanaged switch provides the connectivity without any fuss - just plug it in - no settings and no configuration. A smart managed switch provides a full web interface to report on status, configure ports and set up the more advances features. Smart manages switches typically support features like VLANs and QoS (Quality of Service). A fully Layer 2 managed switch provides additional facilities for control of switching; check the specification of individual models for details of the features available on each.


For explanations of some common switch features, check out our Switching Glossary.
