1GbE Smart Managed Gigabit Switch with 8 Gigabit Ports
The VigorSwitch G1085 is a high-performance, Smart Managed Gigabit Ethernet switch. With 8 RJ-45 Gigabit LAN ports, it's ideal for adding network ports to a DrayTek Vigor router, implementing complex networks with VLANs and adding port-level security with the switch's Access Control List.
Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch G1085 can be provisioned and monitored with the VigorACS management platform, the free VigorConnect single site management system and/or, with a DrayTek Vigor router's Central Switch Management. Easily provision VLAN configuration through the router and clone switch configurations. Drastically reduce the setup time required for a complex network and configure an entire DrayTek network remotely.
The DrayTek VigorSwitch G1085 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.
Managing a VigorSwitch through VigorACS
DrayTek's VigorACS central management system provides a centralised way to manage and view the status of any DrayTek Vigor router, VigorAP access point and VigorSwitch connected to the VigorACS server.
DrayTek VigorSwitch switches that support TR-069 management can be managed through DrayTek VigorACS 2 in the same way that a DrayTek Vigor router or VigorAP access point would be managed. Through VigorACS, you can view and manage; a single VigorSwitch, all switches on a site or all switches across an entire network spanning multiple sites in one place.
DrayTek VigorSwitches connected to VigorACS connect directly to the VigorACS server to be managed, the router or network that they are connected to needs no additional configuration beyond the VigorSwitch having access to the Internet (or if your VigorACS server is located across a private WAN / VPN connection, access to that network).
Central Switch Management with a DrayTek Vigor Router
DrayTek Vigor router Central Switch Management provisions and monitors VigorSwitch switches through a DrayTek Vigor router, with profiles that can be applied to multiple switches and VLAN configuration all handled within the router.
Central Switch Management requires firmware support on both the VigorSwitch and the DrayTek Vigor router*
*requires 3.9.1 firmware update
This can simplify the setup of multiple subnets and VLANs, without needing in-depth knowledge of VLAN tagging and reduces setup time, with the time consuming step of configuring VLANs for each port handled by the router instead.
Dynamic MAC-based VLAN
Assign VLAN access to individual devices instead of ports with MAC-based VLAN, to ensure that devices are assigned to the correct network regardless of which switch port they're plugged into.
With MAC-based VLAN, users can move around the office and make use of the same network resources and access through any port on the switch, without requiring manual re-configuration of VLAN settings on individual ports.
Surveillance & Voice Auto VLAN
With Voice VLAN and Surveillance VLAN, the VigorSwith G1085 simplifies the setup of connected IP Phones and IP Cameras. Move around ports on the switch without having to manually re-configure VLAN and QoS settings each time, instead the switch will auto-assign VLAN tags and Quality of Service to IP Phones and IP Cameras, ensuring that each device remains on the correct network and that essential Voice and Video data is prioritised on the network.
The switch identifies cameras and phones from their MAC address (Vendor OUI), so that when connecting up an IP Phone from Yealink for instance, the switch would configure the VLAN ID and set the QoS tag for that port. Moving the phone to a different port, the switch will ensure that the VLAN settings follow the device rather than requiring a fixed VLAN & QoS configuration per-port.
Link Aggregation (LAG) & Port Trunking
Use two or more network links to connect the VigorSwitch G1085 to a switch or server.
Traffic is shared between the two ports, effectively doubling the available bandwidth for a server or uplink on the network, as well as providing resilience, should one of the links fail.
The standardised Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) allows for interoperability with a wide range of networking products, as well as linking up DrayTek switches.
IGMP Snooping & Querying
Manage and control multicast IGMP traffic passing through the switch, with IGMP Snooping & Querying.
With IGMP Snooping, the switch tracks IGMP traffic passing through its ports. Allowing it to limit the broadcast of multicast/IGMP packets to only the ports that have subscribed, improving overall network performance and avoiding excess network traffic.
The VigorSwitch's IGMP Querier allows it to manage IGMP subscriptions on its network ports, checking which ports are members of which multicast group, if the network's router does not support multicast.
ONVIF IP Camera Management
The VigorSwitch G1085 can discover, manage and configure ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compatible IP cameras and NVR systems, allowing for easy discovery, management and troubleshooting of your connected IP cameras.
Use the VigorSwitch to configure and manage your IP camera network; configure network & security settings, restart cameras and have the switch monitor whether cameras are responding, alerting of any issues.
Network Surveillance Topology
Simply connect ONVIF capable devices to the VigorSwitch G1085, Discover devices and the VigorSwitch determines the network topology of connected cameras & NVR systems.
IP Conflict Detection & Prevention
The VigorSwitch can detect and notify an administrator when an IP conflict is detected on the network. Easily track down conflicts and take action to resolve them.
