What is the function we can configure when the switch is managed by Omada SDN Controller?
TP-Link New Safestream Router, Jetstream Switch, and Omada AP can be managed by Omada SDN Controller. For the Old Jetstream Switch, we have released the new firmware to fit for Omada SDN Controller. If you are using the old Jetstream Switch, you can download the new firmware from the TP-Link Office Website.
To work with Omada SDN Controller. Now Jetstream switch supports two different modes, one is the standalone mode, another is the controller mode. In the standalone mode, you can configure the full function of the switch. But in the controller mode, some advanced functions are limited.
We summarized these functions that can be configured in controller mode. You can find detailed information as below:
To help know clearly of the functions, we classify the functions as 5 types: System, Statistics, LAN Network, Network Security, and Services.
|Module||Features||SDN Controller Mode||Standalone Mode|
|System||System Tool||System IP(Static/DHCP)||√||√|
|Access||SSH||Switch supports SSH access in controller mode, but it only supports using the showing commends.||√|
|POE Power Budget||It supports checking but cannot change the value in SDN controller mode||√|
|POE Port Config||In SDN controller mode, it names as "POE sechdule" feature. It supports setting time to enbale the POE function for the switch's port||√|
|Time||Time Zone||SDN controller mode supports setting Time Zone for each site, which means different site can work in different Time Zone.||×|
|Time Range Config||√||√|
|L2 Features||Port||Port Status||√||√|
|Port Speed and Duplex||√||√|
|Port mirror Ingress(Many to One)||√||√|
|Port mirror Egress(Many to One)||√||√|
|Loopback Detection Port Based||√||√|
|LAG||Sttaic LAG||Up to 8 Groups,
up to 8 Ports per group
|Up to 8 Groups,
up to 8 Ports per group
|MAC address||Switch only supports learning the MAC address dynamicly in controller mode
we cannot do any settings for the MAC address
|In standalone mode, switch can dynamicly learn the MAC address.
And it supports manually creating static Unicast address, Binding Dynamic address, creating filtering address and doing MAC notification settings.
|VLAN||802.1Q VLAN||4K VLANs 4K VIDs||4K VLANs 4K VIDs|
|Multicast||Max Multicast Groups||511 IPv4 multicast groups||511 IPv4,
IPv6 shared multicast groups
|L3 Features||IP Interface||VLAN Interface||16 IPv4 Interface||16 IPv4/IPv6 Interface|
|IP Address Mode(None/Static/DHCP/BOOTP)||√||√|
|Interface Config(IP Address/Subnet Mask/VLAN/Interface Name)||√||√|
|Routing||Static Routing||32 IPv4 Static Routes||32 IPv4/IPv6 Static Routes|
|Static Routing Config||Destination/Subnet Mask/Next Hop/Distance||Destination/Subnet Mask/Next Hop/Distance|
|Static Routing Table||√||√|
|DHCP||DHCP Server||DHCP server IP Pool||DHCP server IP Pool
DHCP server Manual Binding
DHCP server Exluded IP Address
|Storm Control||Kbps Mdoe
|Auto VOIP||It names as Voice Network in SDN controller mode.
*In SDN controller mode, it only supports Auto VOIP feature, there doesn't have Voice VLAN feature.
|Auto VOIP*In standalone mode, there also has the Voice VLAN feature which can use for the Voice application.|
|ACL||ACL type||Switch supports combined ACL in controller mode, and it needs to cooperated with profile.||MAC ACL
Packet Content ACL
|DHCP Filter||Type||DHCPv4 Filter||DHCPv4 Filter
|802.1X||Control Type||Port Based
|CPU Monitor||It names as Statistics feature in SDN controller mode||√|
|Log||Display/Filtering||SDN Controller's Logs feature is powerful to maintain each SDN devices' logs.||√|
|Save to Flash||√|
