Ethernet access switch MES2348P

  • L2+ switches
  • Stacking support
  • Multicast support (IGMP Snooping, MVR)
  • Advanced security functions (L2-L4 ACL, IP Source Guard, Dynamic ARP Inspection, etc.)


The new generation of MES access switches are managed L2+ switches which have 24 or 48 10/100/1000BASE-T ports with PoE/PoE+ support and 4 10GBASE-R (SFP+)/1000BASE-X (SFP) ports.

The switches are designed to connect end users to large-scale, medium and small enterprise networks and to service provider networks using 1G/10G Ethernet interfaces.

The switches support physical stacking, VLANs and multicast groups, as well as advanced security features.
