NetVanta Ethernet switches and switch-routers provide PoE and QoS functionality for Voice over IP (VoIP) networks. QoS ensures network managers have the ability to prioritize delay-sensitive or mission-critical traffic and control network congestion. NetVanta 1200 Series Switches support Layer 2 802.1p Class of Service (CoS), while Weighted Round Robin and Strict Priority Queuing are used for traffic prioritization. In addition, the NetVanta 1200 Series supports and Link Layer Discovery Protocol-Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED) making NetVanta switches ideal for use with VoIP applications.
In addition, the switch includes a VoIP Setup Wizard (available via a Web-based GUI or CLI), which automates the complete VoIP setup process reducing deployment time and eliminating errors. An on-demand VoIP report provides a printable summary of the switch VoIP configuration, as well as providing alerts and recommendations to improve performance.
