SMTP and dual configuration files ease management, and support for 255 or 4K VLAN groups and Jumbo packets (to 9K bytes) give administrators the flexibility to make performance-enhancing adjustments. Security and QoS are important to administrators, too. The ES3526Y features port-based 802.1x, Access Control Lists, HTTPS/SSL and SSH. QoS features include Marking 802.1p and DiffServ, rate-limiting, WRR and strict scheduling.
