VigorSwitch G1282

Smart Managed Gigabit Switch with 24 Gigabit Ports & 4 SFP Ports

The VigorSwitch G1282 is a high-performance, Smart Managed Gigabit Ethernet switch. With 24 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 G1282 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.

Central Management

The DrayTek VigorSwitch G1282 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, you can centrally manage and monitor them either with:

Router - Switch Management Manage VigorSwitches connected to a router and determine network topology at a glance
DrayTek VigorACS Manage and Provision DrayTek VigorSwitches on any network, from anywhere
DrayTek VigorConnect Manage and Provision VigorSwitches and VigorAPs on a single site

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).

Dashboard view

View the state of a VigorSwitch through the Dashboard, with PoE usage, uptime and connected ports all visible in one place:

 

Switch Configuration

View the configuration of a VigorSwitch and make changes to the configuration through VigorACS, then copy the settings from that switch to apply them to multiple VigorSwitch switches:

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.

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.

 

Switch Hierarchy

The Switch Hierarchy view provides a visual overview of interconnections between DrayTek VigorSwitch switches with the devices connected to each LAN port:

Switch Management Profiles

Switch Management profiles can be used configure schedules to enable or disable ports (including PoE) and set bandwidth limits for the ports. Descriptive names can be configured on the router which can be seen from the Switch Hierarchy view:

VLAN configuration of a VigorSwitch can be provisioned from the DrayTek Vigor router, with the router automatically configuring the Uplink port and being aware of the VLAN tags that the Vigor router and the connected LAN port have available:

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.

Dynamic MAC-based VLAN Assignment

Surveillance & Voice Auto VLAN

Auto Voice and Surveillance VLAN

With Voice VLAN and Surveillance VLAN, the VigorSwith G1282 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.

ONVIF IP Camera Management

The VigorSwitch G1282 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.

Device Management

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 G1282, Discover devices and the VigorSwitch determines the network topology of connected cameras & NVR systems.

ONVIF Camera Management - Topology view

View IP Camera Output

Through the VigorSwitch web interface, you can view the video feed of connected IP cameras:

ONVIF Camera Management - Camera Display

Camera Offline Alerts with Snapshot

The VigorSwitch G1282 can store a recent snapshot of each connected IP Camera that's ONVIF compliant.

If a camera goes offline, the VigorSwitch sends out an Email alert with the last-seen snapshot from the camera that's stopped responding. Allowing you to locate the affected camera easily and troubleshoot any problems it may have, such as a disconnected cable or faulty camera.

In addition, with Device Check on a PoE VigorSwitch, the switch can automatically power cycle the affected camera when problems occur, resolving issues with a freezing camera without requiring manual intervention.

IP Conflict Detection & Prevention

Conflict Detection

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.

Conflict Prevention

Use DrayTek's IP Conflict Prevention to allow the switch to automatically protect against IP conflicts and ARP spoofing.

IP Conflict Prevention catalogues the current network layout, giving you the option to fix the IP address and MAC information for important network devices, such as Servers and Routers.

If another device attempts to use an IP address that's in use, the VigorSwitch blocks the misconfigured or malicious device, communicating only with the known and correct device.
