The QNAP QGD-1602P is the world’s first PoE managed switch series that supports Virtual Machines (VMs). Featuring 2.5GbE and 10GbE SFP+ ports and up to 90-watt PoE output, the QGD-1602P allows you to build a high-speed and high-power PoE network infrastructure for Wi-Fi 6 Access Points and Routers. With a dual-CPU design, the QGD-1602P uses Intel® Atom® multi-core 2.2GHz processors with two SATA drive bays to support VM and QTS applications. The QGD-1602P not only fulfills IP surveillance, network security, wireless AP management, and storage expansion applications, but also integrates QuWAN to form a SD-WAN architecture with other QNAP devices across multiple sites, helping to build a resilient and secure IT infrastructure. With 20GbE internal bandwidth capacity and Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), the QGD-1602P achieves the high-performance transmission required for edge computing virtualization and IPsec VPN, and offers SMBs a cost-optimized and centrally managed LAN deployment solution.
2.5GbE PoE Switch for Wi-Fi 6 APs & Routers
The QGD-1602P breaks through bandwidth limitations of connecting cabled and wireless networks to enhance your storage and access experience. With eight 2.5GbE ports, the QGD-1602P supplies up to 90 watts of PoE per port and a total power budget of 380 watts to meet the demands of high-power Wi-Fi 6 APs. The QGD-1602P can also be connected to a QHora Wi-Fi 6 Router via its 5GbE host ports to offer Wi-Fi 6 networking in home or office environments. Featuring diverse high-speed network interfaces, the QGD-1602P provides a comprehensive Wi-Fi 6 wireless network infrastructure solution for small-to-medium-scale businesses, hotels, and stores. Coupled with QNAP’s QuWAN SD-WAN solution, the QGD-1602P greatly enhances wireless LAN efficiency from optimized WAN bandwidth.
Sturdy hardware with Intel QAT for optimized performance
The QGD-1602P uses Intel® Atom® C3000 series multi-core 2.2GHz processors, has two SATA drive bays, and provides and two M.2 NVMe SSD slots for SSD caching to increase IOPS performance. Two PCIe Gen3 x4 slots allows users to install 10GbE network cards, QM2 dual-port M.2 SSD/10GbE cards, USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) cards, or Wireless Adapters to boost core functionality. The QGD-1602P also supports Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT) to greatly enhance IPsec VPN performance.
Note: Intel® QAT is supported when using QTS 4.4.3 (or later).
The First PoE Switch Series with VM Support
The Guardian supports QNAP’s QTS operating system and is the world’s first PoE switch series that can host virtual machines, containers, and provide other cloud applications – enabling diverse networking and storage solutions. In addition to QuWAN, QVR Pro, HybridMount, and other applications, the included App Center also supports VMs for running many open-source software applications. The Guardian provides SMBs with not only an all-in-one networking solution for IP surveillance, storage expansion, network security, and wireless LAN management, but also a SD-WAN solution for connecting to other QNAP devices at multiple sites. The dual-processor Guardian enables you to independently run the networking management interfaces (QSS – QNAP Switch System) and QTS. The Guardian provides a user-friendly web interface, QuNetSwitch, to help SMBs deploy a flexible and secure IT infrastructure.
QTS and QSS can work independently without interference to ensure continuous operation. For example, when restarting QTS, the QSS PoE power supply will not be interrupted; when rebooting QSS, the VMs on QTS will keep running.
Deploy a multi-site VPN with SD-WAN solution
The QGD-1602P and other QNAP solutions now support QuWAN – QNAP’s SD-WAN solution. QuWAN provides full mesh IPsec VPN topology between QNAP devices based in multiple sites to fulfill enterprise video, VoIP, ERP system data, and filing needs. QuWAN adopts software-defined networking to achieve optimum network connectivity, and supports cloud-centric management for deploying a resilient IT Infrastructure.
