They are purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data are all carried on a single network platform. These switches are optimized for network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management. This series of switches offers 8 to 52 port configurations both in Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet with PoE options. All switches come with Gigabit SFP ports for fiber connectivity. These switches are the ideal solution for businesses looking for the best combination of features, performance, and value.

There are many reasons to use VLANs, but perhaps the simplest and most common is to segregate different types of device from one another, especially when one or more makes heavy use of multicast.

The steps in this article are not required for AVB. Log into switch The switch can be configured via its web interface. The first page is the password prompt. The first screen the switch will display is System Information. A network interface can be an untagged member of one VLAN only, so after this next step the assigned ports will no longer be untagged members of VLAN 1.

All other fields should be left at empty or at their default values. The new values will overwrite the existing ones, so the old VLAN assignment will be removed automatically. For networks of one switch only, no further steps are required. There are two steps to this process: Configure the new VLAN on every switch on the network, as shown in the steps above. Configure uplinks ports on each switch. An uplink is a network port which connects to another switch, rather than a host device, and the key difference is how uplinks ports are configured.

This is achieved by making the uplinks ports tagged members of the new VLAN. The reason for this difference is simple. The steps above configured the switch to add a VLAN tag to each incoming Ethernet frame, which will be used to internally to the switch but then removed as the frame exits the destination port. When a frame leaves an uplink, however, we want the VLAN tag left in place, so the upstream switch will correctly identify which VLAN the incoming frame belongs to.

In this example port 24 will be configured as the uplink. This is also the default management VLAN, i. This can be very useful - it allows the administration of all switches on the network to be done from a single location. Port 24 will already be configured as an untagged member of VLAN 1. In this example, it will be left this way.

Either would work, provided the same setting used for each switch. Click once on the box for port 24, which will set it to "T" for tagged. The configuration should look something like the figure below. As per the steps in the first section, ports 5, 6, 7, 8, 17 and 18 are configured such that: Any incoming untagged Ethernet frames will be made part of VLAN 11 as they enter the switch These frames will be forwarded only to those interfaces which are also members of VLAN 11 VLAN tags will be removed as the forwarded frames exit the switch, leaving them in their original untagged state.
