VigorSwitch G2260 - 24 Port Gigabit Managed Switch
The VigorSwitch G2260 is a high-performance, fully-managed, layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch. 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 G2260 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. A dedicated Voice VLAN automatically ensures QoS (Quality of Service) for VoIP traffic.
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.
The DrayTek G2260 has 6 SFP (Fibre Module) ports. Four of the ports can be used instead of the corresponding 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 resilience 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).
