Dear @Pelikan,

 

what are the differences between T1600G-18TS and T2600G-18TS?

 

 

T1600G-18TS is a Smart Switch while the T2600G-18TS is a L2 Managed Switch.

 

  • Smart Switch

Smart switch can be managed by Web interface, Telnet, SSH and SNMP. It supports far more L2 features and better QoS than easy smart switch, additionally, smart switch supports more advanced functions like ACL and Spanning Tree protocol, if you want to support a solution for one small company or colleague with a lower price, the Smart switch is the indispensable device.

 

  • L2 Managed Switch

L2 managed switch has a console port for CLI (Command Line Interface), it has all the managing ways and advanced features that smart switch has, besides, L2 managed switch has abundant VLAN and Multicast features as well as cluster for logical stacking and Network Security features including 802.1X and IP-MAC binding. So you can use L2 managed switch to build a resiliency and availability network or even build up a small ISP Access Network.

 

For detailed differences in specifications, it's suggested to check the specification from the official website below.
