VigorSwitch P2121 - 12 Port Gigabit Switch with PoE - The Draytek VigorSwitch P2121 12-Port PoE+ Gigabit Switch is a high-performance, Managed Gigabit Ethernet switch with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) on 8 RJ-45 ports. With the increase in PoE powered devices requiring full power, notably wireless access points and IP cameras, the generous 140W power budget is much higher than many other products in its class without fan cooling.

Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch P2121 can be provisioned and monitored through both the VigorACS management platform and/or, a DrayTek Vigor router’s Central Switch Management. Easily provision the VLAN configuration through the router and clone switch configurations. Drastically reduce the setup time required for a complex network, with VLANs spanning multiple switches.

The DrayTek VigorSwitch P2121 has 4 Gigabit SFP module ports which can be used instead of the corresponding RJ-45 ports Nos. 9-12. SFP slots are typically used for fibre transceivers. In comparison to 'copper' (RJ-45) cables, using fibre for connectivity provides longer range and resilience from electrical interference.

New DrayTek VigorSwitch OS & User Interface - The VigorSwitch P2121 features our latest generation of DrayTek's own switch operating system which is used across our range of enhanced switches.

Network Security and Management Features - The VigorSwitch P2121's 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 P2121 has 8 standard (RJ45/copper) Gigabit Ethernet Ports, all with PoE+ and four selectable ports (which can be set to either RJ-45 or SFP slots). Features for Quality of Service (QoS), VLANs and network/switch security provide additional flexibility.

Power over Ethernet - The VigorSwitch P2121 is a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch, providing power to any PoE-enabled device, most commonly IP phones, wireless access points or IP cameras over the Ethernet cable.

As well as removing the need for local (at the desk) power supplies, making for tidier installations, PoE ensures power efficiency, providing only the power needed, as well as allowing for time schedules for powering up/down and remote rebooting. Power is provided only when required. PoE also allows for installation of devices where there is no mains power (particularly useful for wireless access points).
