TP-LINK’s Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch, the T1700G-28TQ, is designed to help you build a network that is highly accessible, scalable, and robust. The switch is equipped with 24 10/100/100Mbps RJ-45 ports and 4 dedicated 10G SFP+ slots which can be used for uplinks and/or stacking, providing a strong interconnection between access and aggregation. It provides excellent performance, powerful L2 and L2+ features, enterprise-level QoS, and effective security strategies. Besides, with physical stacking improving performance and simplifies management, T1700G-28TQ is able to provide reliable, cost-effective networking solutions for SMBs.
Physical stacking technology connects multiple devices to form a unified system which allows multiple devices to work together and be managed as a single unit, which improves performance and simplifies management. The stack system of T1700G-28TQs supports up to 40G bi-directional stacking bandwidth with built-in redundancy and provides auto-failover. The switch supports up to 6 units in a stack, which allows it to provide up to 144 GE ports, 12 available 10G SFP+ uplinks and 768Gbps switching capacity, offering high-density developments as well as flexibility for future network expansion need.
Abundant L2 and L2+ Features
The T1700G-28TQ supports rich L2 features, including 802.1Q tag VLAN, Port Isolation, Port Mirroring, STP/RSTP/MSTP, Link Aggregation Groups, and 802.3x Flow Control function. Additionally, the switch provides advanced features for network maintenance, such as Loop Back Detection, Cable Diagnostics, and IGMP Snooping. IGMP snooping ensures that the switch can intelligently forward the multicast stream only to the appropriate subscribers, while IGMP throttling and filtering restrict each subscriber on a port level to prevent unauthorized multicast access. Besides, T1700G-28TQ supports L2+ feature: static routing, which provides simple network segmentation by routing internal transmissions to make the flow of network traffic more efficient.
The T1700G-28TQ supports IP-MAC-Port Binding, Port Security, Storm control, and DHCP Snooping, which help to protect the network from broadcast storms, ARP attacks, and more. The Access Control List (ACL, L2 to L4) feature restricts access to sensitive network resources by rejecting certain packets based on the MAC address, IP address, TCP/UDP ports, and VLAN ID of both the source and destination. And the switch supports 802.1X, which allows network clients to be authenticated through external Radius servers and the guest VLAN function allows non-802.1X clients to access specific network resources.
Advanced QoS features
To support voice, data, and video services on one network, the switch utilizes rich QoS policies. Administrators can prioritize traffic based on a variety of factors, including Port Priority, 802.1P Priority, and DSCP Priority, to ensure that voice and video streams are always clear and smooth.
Enterprise Level Management Features
The T1700G-28TQ is easy to use and manage. It supports various user-friendly standard management features, such as intuitive web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), industry-standard Command Line Interface (CLI), SNMP (v1/2/3), and RMON. This allows the switch to provide valuable status information and send reports on abnormal events. Comprehensive IPv6 support management ensures a smooth migration to an IPv6-based network. It also supports Dual Image to provide improved reliability and network uptime.
Affordable 10-Gigabit Switching Solution for Growing SMBs
T1700 Series 10G Smart Switches
In a world of expanding enterprises and growing virtualization, cloud-based services and applications, like VoIP, HD streaming video, and IP surveillance, SMB networks need to evolve beyond simple reliability to provide increased scalability, higher bandwidth, and enhanced performance. TP-LINK’s new T1700 Series 10G Smart Switches represent an ideal solution that meets these requirements. The series includes the T1700X-16TS Full 10-Gigabit Smart Switch and the T1700G-28TQ Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch with 10G Uplink, which both provide high levels of performance, scalability, and cost-effectiveness that SMBs require from their 10G networking solutions.
12-Port 10GBase-T Smart Switch
with 4 10G SFP+ Slots
Until recently, 10-Gigabit connectivity was available only in the expensive fiber based technology that supports high-speed access to the network backbone or data center environment.
Today, 10GBase-T Technology is becoming more common and affordable. Low-Latency, Line-Rate 10G Copper Base-T is backward compatible with Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet and can automatically negotiate between higher and lower speed connections. Most importantly, 10GBase-T provides a cost-effective method for migrating from your current network to 10G Ethernet by utilizing your existing CAT5e/CAT6 RJ-45 short connections (up to 55m) and CAT6A/CAT7 connections (up to 100m). This reduces cabling complexity and ultimately results in significant savings for customers.
16 10-Gigabit Ports,
320Gbps Switching Capacity
The T1700X-16TS features 12 10GBase-T RJ45 ports and four dedicated SFP+ fiber slots, which can support up to 320Gbps of combined switching bandwidth. This provides great resiliency, relieves congestion associated with bandwidth-intensive applications, and guarantees smooth data transmission.
WITH 10G UPLINK
24-Port Gigabit Stackable Smart Switch
with 4 10GE SFP+ Slots
With True Physical Stacking Technology, up to six T1700G-28TQ units can be stacked with a single IP address.
This provides enhanced scalability, simple management, and increased redundancy for high-density deployment. It also supports efficient network expansion in the future.
