The QSW-M1204-4C is a Layer 2 Web Managed Switch with eight 10GbE SFP+ ports and four 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports that enables blazing-fast transfer speeds, simultaneous multi-workstation access to large files (ideal for video editing and multimedia), and empowers bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization. Supporting Layer 2 switching and providing a user-friendly entry-level network management solution, the QSW-M1204-4C is an affordable way for businesses and organizations to fully embrace 10GbE connectivity.
Includes eight 10GbE SFP+/ RJ45 combo ports. Compatible with 10GbE and NBASE-T technologies to support five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M) using existing cables.
The QNAP Switch System (QSS) is easy to use and provides an overview dashboard, port management and setting guide, making central network management intuitive.
Provides Layer 2 management features (such as LACP, VLAN, ACL and LLDP) for IT staff to efficiently control network bandwidth and enhance security.
One of the few web-managed switches that supports Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP). Easily and efficiently deploy small/medium-scale networks that support expansion, redundancy, and loop prevention.
Compliant with IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet and IEEE802.3x Flow Control in full-duplex mode, the QSW-M1204-4C avoids packet loss from unparalleled bandwidth and reduces power consumption for low-speed and inactive connections.
QSS can be updated with just one click, helping IT staff ensure their network security.
Flexible deployment combo ports and 10GbE / NBASE-T
The 12-port QSW-M1204-4C switch includes eight SFP+ (fiber) ports, and four SFP+/RJ45 (copper) combo ports for connecting different interfaces. With RJ45 interfaces, 10GbE is supported using Cat 6a (or above) cables. Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables can be used with SFP+ ports for connecting to servers inside a rack. The switching capacity of the QSW-M1204-4C is 240 Gbps, guaranteeing the full potential of each port. The QSW-M1204-4C is also compatible with 10GbE and NBASE-T technologies to support up to five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M). The SFP+/RJ45 (copper) combo ports provide higher transmission speeds with existing cables. Depending on cable types and their lengths, different speeds can be achieved for faster, more efficient data transfer.
Note: If the distance between the switch and the device is less than 45 meters (148 feet), a Cat 6 cable can be used to achieve 10Gb/s speeds.
Fully embrace High-Speed Networking with QNAP!
From NAS with built-in 10GbE SFP+ and 10GBASE-T ports, or NAS with PCIe slots that support 10GbE network adapters, QNAP has led the industry in 10GbE adoption. Other high-speed network solutions from QNAP include Thunderbolt 3 to 10GbE Network Adapters and USB 3.2 Gen 1 to 5GbE Network Adapters. These can all be used with the QSW-M1204-4C to create a comprehensive high-speed network environment for boosting the performance of photo/video editing, virtualization, large-file data transfers, and other bandwidth-demanding tasks.

Optimize Network Performance with bandwidth and packet control
The QSW-M1204-4C provides bandwidth and packet control functions (such as LACP, VLAN, QoS, and IGMP Snooping) to boost network performance through IP grouping and bandwidth management.
|Link Aggregation (LAG) combines multiple network connections to increase throughput and protect against connection failure.
|Virtual Networks (VLAN) allows groups of devices from different networks to be combined into a single network.
|QoS (Quality of Service) helps prioritize bandwidth usage to optimize network resource allocation.
|IGMP snooping assists in minimizing bandwidth loss and preventing network information leakage.
Powerful security and system functions
The QSW-M1204-4C has powerful security and system functions (including ACL, LLDP, RSTP and Flow Control) to help administrators enhance network reliability using access controls, troubleshooting, loop prevention and avoiding packet loss.
Near-silent and energy saving
With its smart cooling system, the QSW-M1204-4C ensures high-speed network performance without distracting background noise. IEEE 802.3az (EEE) support also reduces power consumption without sacrificing performance or functionality. By dynamically detecting link speeds and activities and adjusting accordingly, the QSW-M1204-4C provides energy savings of up to 50% to minimize operational costs.
Versatile installation and sleek appearance
The QSW-M1204-4C features a sleek modern design that blends in with modern digital homes and offices. A Rackmount Kit is included to provide extra installation options.
