New VigorSwitch Gigabit Ethernet Switch Series


DrayTek's new VigorSwitch series is based on our latest generation DrayOS switch operating system. This provides a consistent look and feel across the managed models and a new intuitive web interface, as well as cental management from both our Vigor router-based switch management features or our centrally managed VigorACS platform. We have models with and without high-power PoE (for powering network devices) and more advanced models with full L2 management facilities, enterprise features and extended security methods.


Management from VigorACS

Manage from Vigor Routers

If you have a DrayTek Vigor Router (see supported models), its own web interface provides you with management of all compatible VigorSwitches on the LAN, giving you at-a-glance status displays, control and direct links into the native management interface


Management from VigorACS

For larger estates of DrayTek products (including switches, routers and wireless access points) you can use DrayTek's VigorACS central management platform.  This cloud service (or can be self-hosted) provides a complete overview of your devices, across multiple sites and for multiple clients/companies. You can produce reports, see instant status, get alerts, do mass firmware upgrades or policy deployments and detect issues as they occur. VigorACS is supported by all of the new series of VigorSwitches (exc. P1092/G1080 - those do support management from routers - see above). 


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


Model Comparisons

There are 'three' levels of VigorSwitch - Entry level, Enhanced and full enterprise/L2 features. All models include web interfaces for control, monitoring and management. Models prefixed with 'P' include PoE (Power over Ethernet).  The table below indicates the main differences between models for comparison - it does not include the full specification of all models.
