QNAP's QGD-1600P is the world's first PoE managed switch that supports Virtual Machines (VMs). It features 4-port 60-watt and 12-port 30-watt Gigabit PoE (with two PoE/SFP Combo ports) for highly flexible networking environment deployment. With a dual-CPU design, the QGD-1600P provides both Layer 2 management functions for VM and QTS applications. The QGD-1600P also features Software-Defined Networking (SDN), enabling it to function as a NAS, NVR, router, firewall and AP controller for IP surveillance, network security, storage expansion, and wireless LAN management applications. Therefore, the Guardian series offers SMBs a cost-optimized and centrally managed LAN deployment solution. QGD-1600P is compliant with the latest IEEE 802.3bt PoE++ and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standards, and offers 4-port 60-watt and 12-port 30-watt Gigabit PoE capability. QGD-1600P can supply a total power budget of 370 watts to meet the demands of high-powered devices (PDs). QGD-1600P provides comprehensive Layer 2 management features, such as VLAN, LACP, QoS IGMP Snooping, and Wake-on-LAN for IT administrators to efficiently control the network bandwidth and enhance security via the user-friendly switch management web interface. QuNetSwitch offers a user-friendly web interface to help IT administrators efficiently control Layer 2 and PoE networks. Additionally, the overview dashboard and graphical statistics analysis show IT administrators all switch information and pored devices at a glance, making central management of high-power devices intuitive and easy.Supports up to two SATA drives.
