Managed ethernet switches and managed gigabit switches allow users to set configurations for network management, monitoring, and traffic controls. There are different types of smart ethernet switches, each with differing levels of management available. TRENDnet offers a wide range of managed switches: L2/L2+ Managed Switches, Web Smart Switches, and EdgeSmart Switches. In general, L2/L2+ Managed Switches will offer the greatest amount of management capability, and EdgeSmart Switches are the most cost-effective managed solutions, featuring the most commonly used management features available.
TRENDnet's EdgeSmart Switches feature web GUI management with just the most commonly used managed switch features, such as VLAN, IGMP snooping, QoS, and link aggregation. This helps to reduce unnecessary switch complexity.
For more sophisticated networks, our Web Smart Switches support advanced managed switches features, such as traffic management controls, IP routing, VLAN, QoS, access controls, link aggregation, troubleshooting, SNMP monitoring, per port MAC restriction, and dynamic ARP inspection.
TRENDnet's Layer 2 Managed Switch solutions include premier managed features, such as CLI, PoE control, access control lists, VLAN, IGMP snooping, QoS, RMON, SNMP trap, and syslog for monitoring and flexible network integration.
