SonicWall Switch Series - please check Features tab above for specific features to this SWS12-8 switch). Full datasheet here.

The SonicWall Switch delivers high-speed network switching while providing unparalleled performance and manageability. Its unified security posture, high port density, Power over Ethernet (PoE) options and multi-gigabit performance capabilities makes it ideal for small and medium-sized business (SMB), and Software-Defined Branch (SD-Branch) deployments. This enables businesses – big or small, to undergo digital transformation and keep pace with the changing network and security landscape.

The SonicWall Secure SD-Branch solution transforms user experience at branch office locations by delivering a unified platform that enables branches to be deployed in minutes and delivers unified visibility and threat detection from a single pane of glass. SonicWall SD-Branch components consist of SonicWall next-generation firewalls with Secure SD-WAN, Capture Security Center with Zero-Touch Deployment, SonicWall Switches, SonicWave access points (AP), Capture Client and Cloud App Security. With the flexibility that SonicWall Secure SD-Branch offers, organizations can now be more agile, open and cloud-centric.

An integral part of the next-generation branch transformation, the SonicWall Switches are managed via firewalls for unified, single-pane-of-glass management of the entire SonicWall infrastructure. By tightly integrating with firewalls, the solution benefits from unified security posture and offers an end-to-end security solution that simplifies deployment, management and troubleshooting. This ensures seamless security and eliminates gap in security posture that may arise with third party switches.

In conjunction, the SonicWall Switch offers Zero-Touch Deployment capability with the ability to quickly roll out devices across branches spread out globally. Admins can quickly and securely deploy these switches at new locations without requiring any costly on-site IT personnel.

Packed with features, these stackable switches are available in a compact form factor with an energy-efficient design. Available in seven models, ranging from eight to 48, with gigabit and 10 gigabit Ethernet ports, the switches work seamlessly with SonicWall next-generation firewalls and SonicWave APs to create an end-to-end multi-gigabit secure network. The Ethernet ports provide PoE options to power on various devices such as APs, VOIP phones and IP cameras.

Prioritize certain traffic on the network such as VOIP for video conferences while working from home, with features such as QoS. Easily segment devices in the network and maintain compliance. Segregating can be accomplished by creating policies or VLANs. Features such as 802.1X authentication allows business to maintain PCI compliance.
