TP-LINK's Gigabit stackable smart switch, the T1700G-28TQ, is designed to help you build a network that is highly accessible, scalable, and robust. The switch is equipped with 24 10/100/100Mbps RJ-45 ports and 4 dedicated 10G SFP+ slots which can be used for uplinks and/or stacking, providing a strong interconnection between access and aggregation. It provides excellent performance, powerful L2 and L2+ features, enterprise-level QoS, and effective security strategies. Besides, with physical stacking improving performance and simplifies management, T1700G-28TQ is able to provide reliable, cost-effective networking solutions for SMBs.
Physical stacking technology connects multiple devices to form a unified system which allows multiple devices to work together and be managed as a single unit, which improves performance and simplifies management. The switch supports up to 6 units in a stack offering high-density developments as well as flexibility for network expansion need.
Abundant L2 and L2+ features
The T1700G-28TQ supports rich L2 features, including 802.1Q tag VLAN, Port Isolation, Port Mirroring, STP/RSTP/MSTP, Link Aggregation Groups, and 802.3x Flow Control function. Additionally, the switch provides advanced features for network maintenance, such as Loop Back Detection, Cable Diagnostics, and IGMP Snooping. IGMP snooping ensures that the switch can intelligently forward the multicast stream only to the appropriate subscribers, while IGMP throttling and filtering restrict each subscriber on a port level to prevent unauthorized multicast access. Besides, T1700G-28TQ supports L2+ feature: static routing, which provides simple network segmentation by routing internal transmissions to make the flow of network traffic more efficient.
Advanced QoS features
To support voice, data, and video services on one network, the switch utilizes rich QoS policies. Administrators can prioritize traffic based on a variety of factors, including Port Priority, 802.1P Priority, and DSCP Priority, to ensure that voice and video streams are always clear and smooth.
Enterprise-level management features
The T1700G-28TQ is easy to use and manage. It supports various user-friendly standard management features, such as intuitive web-based graphical user interface (GUI), industry-standard command line interface (CLI), SNMP, and RMON. This allows the switch to provide valuable status information and send reports on abnormal events.
