10GbE Gigabit Switch with 48 Gigabit Ports & 6 10GbE SFP+ Uplink Ports
VigorSwitch G2540x is a 54 port Gigabit L2+ Managed switch with a plethora of management options and enterprise-level features to improve network stability and security for businesses.

Use the 4 switchable SFP/RJ-45 ports and 2 dedicated SFP module slots to link with additional switches using link aggregation, or plug in a suitable SFP module to use optical Fibre as an Ethernet uplink.

Designed for centralised management, the VigorSwitch G2540x 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.

10GbE SFP+ Ports for High Speed Uplinks
The DrayTek VigorSwitch G2540x has 6 dedicated SFP+ ports for uplinks, each operating at up to 10 Gigabits per second. The faster 10 Gigabit uplink capability allows you to make high bandwidth links to Network Attached Storage, Servers and other switches, to help reduce the risk of bottlenecks occurring within your network.

The SFP+ ports provide compatibility with your choice of SFP / SFP+ modules (not included) and therefore the most appropriate medium for your application.

Connect a passive Direct Attach SFP+ cable such as the DrayTek DAC-CX10-01M to the SFP+ module port of 1Gbps/10Gbps capable Network Attached Storage, Servers and Switches, for a cost effective, up to 10Gbps network link.

Advanced Layer 2+ Routing Features
The VigorSwitch G2540x adds the Layer 3 features VLAN Routing, DHCP Server and Static Route, which allow the switch to provide routing between VLANs at full speed. The switch’s Access Control List gives full control of what traffic routes between those networks.

VLAN Routing
A DrayTek VigorSwitch normally provides connectivity for multiple network segments with 802.1Q VLAN tags, which separate networks at Layer 2 (MAC level), relying on the router to connect different networks. VLAN Routing in the switch allows for Layer 3 (IP level) routing, to connect and route between different IP subnets with wire speed routing performance.

Static Route
Routing beyond the VigorSwitch G2540x, to the Internet and across VPNs is possible with Static Routes, using the switch to direct traffic to remote subnets through the correct gateway. Up to 512 static routes can be configured on the switch.

Rack Mountable & Silent
Install the VigorSwitch on a desk, shelf or wall, or use the included rack mount fittings to install the switch in any standard 19″ rack with 1U height.

Ideal for installation in quiet office environments, the VigorSwitch G2540x runs quietly, cooling without a fan.

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.

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 3.9.3 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.
