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)
Management VLAN
LED on/off
system Sunmmary
Device Description
System Time
System Reboot
System Reset
Reboot Schedule
Access SSH Switch supports SSH access in controller mode, but it only supports using the showing commends.
POE POE Protocol IEEE802.3af/IEEE802.3at IEEE802.3af/IEEE802.3at
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. ×

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.
