Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p)

  • It allows real-time traffic classification with support for eight priority levels mapped to either the queues, it uses weighted deficit round robin (WDRR) or strict priority (SP).

Simplified QoS configuration

  • It prioritizes traffic by specifying a port and priority level. VLAN-based prioritizes traffic by specifying a VLAN and priority level.

Class of Service (CoS)

  • It sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ.

Rate limiting

  • It sets per-port ingress enforced maximums for all ingressed traffic or for broadcast, multicast, or unknown destination traffic.

Layer 4 prioritization

  • It enables prioritization based on TCP/UDP port numbers.

Command-line interface (CLI)

  • It provides advanced configuration and diagnostics through a robust CLI. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMPv1/v2c/v3) allows a switch to be managed with a variety of third-party network management applications.

IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)

  • It automates device discovery protocol for easy mapping by network management applications.

IPv6 host

  • It allows the switch to be deployed and managed at the edge of an IPv6 network. Dual stack (IPv4/IPv6) supports connectivity for both protocols and provides a transition mechanism from IPv4 to IPv6.

MLD snooping

  • It forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface; prevents IPv6 multicast traffic from flooding the network.


  • It adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on all ports.

16K MAC address table

  • It provides access to many Layer 2 devices.

GARP VLAN registration protocol

  • It allows automatic learning and dynamic assignment of VLANs.
