Quality of Service (QoS)

  • Broadcast Control – Allows limitation of broadcast traffic rate to cut down on unwanted network broadcast traffic
  • Rate Limiting – Sets per-port ingress enforced maximums and per-port, per-queue minimums
  • Traffic Prioritization – Provides time-sensitive packets (like VoIP and video) with priority over other traffic based on DSCP or IEEE 802.1p classification; packets are mapped to four hardware queues for more effective throughput


  • IPv6
    • IPv6 Host – Enables switches to be managed and deployed at the IPv6 network's edge
    • IPv6 Routing – Supports IPv6 static routes
    • MLD Snooping – Forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface, preventing traffic flooding
    • IPv6 ACL/QoS – Supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic
  • Auto-MDI/MDIX – Adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100/1000 ports
  • IEEE 802.3X Flow Control – Provides a flow throttling mechanism propagated through the network to prevent packet loss at a congested node
  • IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) Ready – Provides up to 15.4 W per port to power standards-compliant IP phones, wireless LAN access points, Web cameras, and more (all PoE models)
  • IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE+) – Provides up to 30 W per port which allows support of the latest PoE+-capable devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, and security cameras, as well as any IEEE 802.3af-compliant end device; eliminates the cost of additional electrical cabling and circuits that would otherwise be necessary in IP phone and WLAN deployments. (Note: applies to all PoE models, except the two 24G-PoE models which support a pre-standard implementation of PoE+)
  • Packet Storm Protection – Protects against broadcast, multicast, or unicast storms with user-defined thresholds
  • Cable Diagnostics – Detects cable issues remotely, using a browser-based tool


  • Advanced Access Control Lists (ACLs) – Enables network traffic filtering and enhances network control using MAC- and IP-based ACLs; time-based ACLs allow for greater flexibility with managing network access
  • Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) – Encrypts all HTTP traffic, allowing secure access to the browser-based management GUI in the switch
  • IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS Network Logins – Controls port-based access for authentication and accountability
  • Automatic VLAN Assignment – Assigns users automatically to the appropriate VLAN based on their identity, location and time of day
  • STP BPDU Port Protection – Blocks Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDUs) on ports that do not require BPDUs, preventing forged BPDU attacks
  • STP Root Guard – Protects the root bridge from malicious attacks or configuration mistakes
  • Automatic Denial-of-Service Protection – Monitors for malicious attacks and protects the network by blocking the attacks
  • Management Password – Provides security so that only authorized access to the Web browser interface is allowed
