The VigorSwitch P1092 is a high-performance, Gigabit smart switch with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) on 8 RJ-45 ports (plus 2 additional SFP ports). All 8 ports are full speed Gigabit (1000Mb/s) Ethernet; as well as ensuring that your wired Ethernet devices get maximum speed, Gigabit on PoE is is particularly useful on a network where your PoE devices are providing Gigabit devices to a secondary device, for example IP phone to desktop PC using their loop/passthrough support if it supports Gigabit Ethernet. Of course, regular, non-PoE devices can connect to the switch so will also still take advantage of the Gigabit speed so ideal for a mixed environment. The P1092 includes the rack mounting bracket/kit as standard.



Key Features 8+2 Port Gigabit Managed Switch: 8 x RJ-45 Ethernet Ports with PoE+
2 x SFP (Fibre Module) Ports

PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) for IP phones, wireless access points, IP Cameras etc.
110W total Power budget (Max 30W per port)
802.3af (PoE) and 802.3at (High Power PoE)
Fanless (Silent) Operation
802.3az Power Saving
802.1q VLANs (Tag, Port & MAC-based)
QoS for Application traffic prioritisation
Link Aggregation (GE7/ GE8,  SFP1 / SFP2)
IGMP Snooping (Up to 128 Multicast Groups)
Managed via compatible DrayTek Router or standalone operation
PoE Devices The VigorSwitch P1092 is a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch, providing power to any PoE-enabled device, most commonly IP phones, wireless access points or IP cameras over the Ethernet cable. As well as removing the need for local (at the desk) power supplies, making for tidier installations, PoE ensures power efficiency, providing only the power needed. Power is provided only when required. PoE also allows for installation of devices where there is no mains power (particularly useful for wireless access points). The P1092 supports both standard PoE (802.3af) and High-Power PoE (802.3at) devices.
Central Management The DrayTek VigorSwitch P1092 can operate in standalone mode and be managed through its web interface or you need to manage and monitor the switch remotely, or have several DrayTek VigorSwitches to administer, you can centrally manage them with a DrayTek router which supports switch management. This allows a DrayTek router which is directly connected to the switch to manage it. For details on this click the 'tabs' at the top of the page.


The DrayTek VigorSwitch P1092 has 2 Gigabit SFP module ports which can be used in addition to the 8 RJ-45 ports. SFP slots are typically used for fibre transceivers. In comparison to 'copper' (RJ-45) cables, using fibre for connectivity provides longer range and resilience from electrical interference.

The SFP ports provides compatibility with your choice of SFP modules (not included) and therefore the most appropriate medium for your application. If you use the SFP slots, then the corresponding copper port is not active but the others remain available.

Power over Ethernet Management The VigorSwitch P1092 has a power budget for PoE of up to 110watts spread across RJ-45 ports 1 to 8, which allows for all ports to be used for PoE (dependent on each device's power requirements). For example, if you were using our PoE-powered VigorAP 910c wireless access points, they typically use up to 12 watts, so it is within the P1092's budget if you had 8 of them connected. 

With smart power management, drawing only as much power as needed together with 802.1az compliance. If a non-PoE device is connected, that port's PoE power is turned off which also avoids any potential damage to non-compliant devices.

24 Gigabit Ethernet Ports (4 Additional Selectable Ports Ethernet gigabit or SFP)
Rack mountable
Warranty : 2 Year Manufacturer's RTB
smartphone app or the switch's own web interface allows easy source selection
The DrayTek VigorSwitch V1281 is a switch designed for distributing IP video feeds from multiple sources (e.g. Set-top boxes, DVD players, media systems, cameras etc) over Ethernet/IP to multiple outputs (TVs, monitors or projectors).

It's suitable for homes, offices, pubs or restaurants or any commercial applications with multiple screens requiring easy distribution and selection.




On the VigorSwitch V1281 the 28 ports can each be set as either a source (input) or output and any output (screen) can then receive the video from any of the inputs. One port is always reserved for data/PC access. In the simplest configuration, you can use the V1281 as a fixed distribution system - one source distributing to up to 26 outputs (screens) but the real power and flexibility is in multiple sources and multiple outputs with each output selecting any of the sources.

A smartphone app or the switch's own web interface allows easy source selection for any of the screens or projectors. The VigotSwitch app is currently available for iOS   and Android as a free download from the App/Play stores.

You can have multiple set-top boxes (cable or satellite receivers), each one tuned to a different channel so, for example, in a pub it's easy to switch different areas to different outputs or in a home environment, a user in any room can select one of many sources.

Source Selection

In the simplest scenario, each screen is fixed on one source but users can also switch sources from a web browser or the VigorSwitch app. Users can have rights to only control specific outputs, e.g. their own room or specific sources. The phone app connects over WiFi so your router or WiFi base needs to be connected to the V1281.
Benefits of the V1281 Intuitive & Fast Setup meaning less time on-site, saving valuable technician time.
Remote access. As an IP device, you can remotely access it from anywhere to change the config or select sources/outputs.
Easy to use app - intuitive for users without any technical knowledge.
Scalable. Instead of buying a costly matrix big enough for the future, you buy the switch and then only the number HDMI/IP adaptors required, adding more later if needed.
You can mix sources and screens/receivers in any combination - any port can be an input/source or output/screen.
Future proof - With the rapid rate of change, you can replace your HDMI/IP adaptors later but keep the V1281, saving time and money.
Combined IP data and video on one switch. The V1281 has 28 ports, so any not needed for AV can be used for data, saving the cost, space and time of installing a second switch.
An open platform, allowing use of any 3rd party HDMI/IP adaptors.
Users can be limited to specific sources or screen control
API for integration with 3rd party control systems.



Simplicity at its core

When designing this product, we spoke to A/V installers to understand their priorities. Beyond the core functionality of the product, ease of setup is a high priority. Being on-site and man-hours spent on setup has a real impact on efficiency and economy. The VigorSwitch V1281 makes setup very visual, intuitive and fast. To aid this, when you configure the V1281 you give each port an actual name, so a port might be called "DVD Player" or "Dining Room" instead of just "Port 1". That means, during all other configuration and user control, sources and outputs are named (e.g. Lounge, DVD-Player etc), not just numbered.
You may just want to set fixed/permanent sources and outputs but if you do want administrators or users to quickly switch sources for each output (screen/projector) there's a web interface or the free companion app to make it easy. A source can be selected for an individual output, or you can have presets which instantly change to complete combinations of sources and outputs. Individual user accounts allow you to set up different privileges so that different users can control only the outputs (screens) you want, or view the sources which are appropriate.

IP/CAT5 vs. HDMI

An HDMI cable has a maximum run of around 15-20 metres before the signal degrades. CAT5e/6 Ethernet cable can run well over 100 metres, it's lower cost, easy to terminate, has a smaller diameter and may be already installed.An important component of a complete VigorSwitch V1281 setup are the HDMI to IP converters. The VigorSwitch V1281 is compatible with devices from leading manufacturers as well as our own HVE290 HDMI-over-IP adaptor.


User Interface

Configuration of the V1281 is all performed from its web interface. This can be accessed locally from the LAN or remotely, if you have remote access to your network (always use a VPN or other type of encrypted session such as https when accessing remotely). On the left here you can see some of the router's screens, showing how intuitve setup is but also the at-a-glance reporting makes it easy to see what's going on.

Preset Selection

Rather than selecting each source individually for each screen (output), an alternative method allows the user to select preset groups, for example, switching every output to one specific source with a single press. More sophisticated combinations are possible too, which can be useful in commercial environments where presets may contain more complex combinations. A preset might be called "All screens watch DVD Player" or "Bar to Sky1 / Saloon to Sky2 ". In that last example, imagine a pub where all of the screens in the main bar are switched to one receiver, and the screens in the Saloon bar are switched to another. In other scenarios, you might want multiple screens (outputs) to be switched between various sources but not always the same - you just select the appropriate preset for each scenario. SFP Ports for Fibre Modules

The DrayTek VigorSwitch V1281 has 4 Gigabit SFP module ports which can be used instead of the corresponding RJ-45 (copper) ports (Port nos. 25-28). SFP slots are typically used for fibre transceivers. In comparison to 'copper' (RJ-45) cables, using fibre for connectivity provides longer range and resilence from electrical interference so if you have a screen which is well beyond the reach of normal Ethernet, you can use fibre, which can run for Kilometres !

The SFP ports provide compatibility with your choice of SFP modules (not included) and therefore the most appropriate medium and range for your application. If you use the SFP slots, then the corresponding copper port is not active.
  Ports 25-28 can be used as RJ-45 or SFP

The HVE290 comes as a pair (sender and receiver) although additional receiver units are available separately too. The sender unit connects to your video source (HDMI) and to the VigorSwitch V1281 (RJ45 sockets). The receiver unit connects back to your VigorSwitch 1281 and outputs to your TV, screen or projector's HDMI input, elsewhere in your building.

The HVE290 uses a video codec designed to balance bandwidth conservation with frame rate - i.e. to reduce dropping frames in fast-moving scenes which can cause 'jerkiness', particularly on larger screens or projectors in 'panning shots'.  The HVE290 also provides full HD with up to 36-bit colour to ensure you get great resolution and picture fidelity, even on a large screen and can transmit regular PCM Stereo, Dolby® surround or DTS® sources to the receivers.   The HVE290 can also downscale or upscale when you're using a one-to-many configuration with screens of different resolutions (e.g. transmit a 1080P picture and display it on a 720P and 1080P screen simultaneously).





The image above shows the sockets on the receiver and sender units. The RJ45 (network) socket is on the other side of both units, as shown. Individual receiver units are also available separately which is useful if you have different numbers of sources and outputs (screens), e.g. 3 sources but 8 outputs (screens) when you're using a VigorSwitch V1281 (available separately). Do not connect the HVE290 to a regular switch which cannot switch/segment signals and seperate it from LAN/Internet data.

 



HVE290 Sender Unit connected to Satellite TV receiver and VigorSwitch V1281. In this scenario, you'll probably also want to use an IR 'eye' pair (not shown) to send remote control signals back to the Satellite receiver from the output locations (screens).   HVE290 Receiver unit connected to a TV. The green CAT5e cable will go through your building's cabling back to the VigorSwitch V1281 (or directly into an HVE300 sender unit). You will be able to control your source device from the screens around your building using the original Infra-red remote control if you fit the IR 'eyes' (receiver and emitter) pairs onto the HVE sender and receiver units. The IR addons may be included with your unit, depending on which model you purchase.

 

Each unit needs power, either from the AC/DC power supply (included) or if you have many sender units, you may prefer a multi-outlet USB power supply (of adequate power/Amps). USB DC cables are available as an optional accessory. It is very convenient to power the receiver directly from the TV's USB port however many TVs do not provide sufficient power (some larger ones do).



Above: Accessories. The USB DC cable is an optional extra.


Direct Connection (no Switch)

As well as connecting the HVE290 through the VigorSwitch V1281, with multiple senders and receivers, you can also use the units as lone pairs, connected directly, sender to receiver:



Without the VigorSwitch V1281, you can connect the units directly to each other using a CAT5e cable of up to 170 metres, far exceeding HDMI cable limits. CAT5e or CAT6 is also lower cost and easier to terminate than HDMI and often part of an existing structured cable installation.

DrayTek VigorSwitch V1281

The DrayTek VigorSwitch V1281 (sold separately) has 27 ports which can be used for HVE290 senders or receivers, so you can have any combination of source devices or TV outputs and any of the screens can select any of the inputs using the smartphone app.

The HVE290 can be powered by the included PSU, but also, conveniently, by a suitable USB source. This is particularly useful at the source end where you may have several sender units and one PSU with one mains plug can power them all (depending on how many outputs the USB power supply has). At the receiving end, if the TV provides sufficient power, then you can power the receiver from the TV, so no PSU is needed at all, making for a very tidy installation.
