Networking™ switches not only provide the quality, reliability and capability you expect from Dell™, but also the peace of mind that guarantees hardware for life — a true Lifetime Warranty.
Incredible Performance, Value and Power Savings
The Dell Networking 2808 switch offers incredible value to customers by delivering Web-managed capabilities that allow users to manage the switch through an intuitive Web interface. This 8-port version is scalable from small workgroups to highly dense aggregation solutions at the branch office requiring Gigabit Ethernet. The 8-port switch also saves power by reducing power consumption up to 51 percent on copper ports with short cables and has energy efficient capabilities that automatically decrease power on any ports that detect unused or powered down devices — saving both energy and money.
The Networking 2808 LAN switch is a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet solution delivering full wire-speed switching across all ports, along with Web-management.
The 2808 ships to you as an unmanaged switch for plug and play deployment, but with a push of a button, you can easily convert the switch from unmanaged to a Web-managed switch with the ability to set IP address, configure virtual LANs (VLANs), set Quality of Service (QoS) priorities, and port mirror for intrusion detection and troubleshooting.
The Networking 2808 delivers an all-Gigabit solution for your networking needs. The 2808 delivers wire-speed performance at all three Ethernet speeds — 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps. And with wire speed switch capacity, you can be sure performance is delivered where you need it.
Dell Networking 2800 Series
Dell™ Networking™ 2800 series are web-managed, Gigabit Ethernet switches designed by Dell to provide a powerful switch with outstanding cost and power savings.
The Networking 2800 series is a switch family of secure, fixed-port Gigabit Ethernet switches delivering full wire-speed switching performance. These switches offer four port densities, including 8, 16 , 24, and 48 port Gigabit Ethernet ports. In addition the 2824 and 2848 have SFP slots in a combo port arrangement that deliver fiber capabilities (SFP transceivers optional). Auto MDI/MDIX and auto-negotiation of speed, duplex mode and flow help deliver exceptional control over your network traffic. The Networking 2800 family also supports jumbo frames for networks that need to move large files across the network.Easy, powerful management
The Networking 2800 series offers amazing value by delivering web-management capabilities that allow users to manage the switch through an intuitive web interface. The web-interface allows the user to easily manage the switch without the requirement to learn CLI commands or integrating the switch into an SNMP-based application, though a focused set of CLI and SNMP commands are available for environments requiring basic centralized remote management. While some vendors may refer to their web-managed switches as “smart switches”, we like to think of our switches as “power switches” powerful performance coupled with powerful management capabilities. Each switch is delivered in standard, unmanaged mode. Convert the switch to web-managed mode with the push-of-a-button on the front panel, and then easily configure Quality of Service (QoS), port-based virtual LANs (VLANs) and remote switch monitoring. The firmware allows you to upgrade the switch software as needed. The Networking 2800 family also features technology to help reduce power consumption per port by up to 96% on unused ports.
Easy web access to the managed features provides a secure environment by offering password restricted access. These switches also offer enhanced security by allowing the user to specify which IP addresses have access to the switch. Up to 64 industry-standard VLANs are supported and four priority queues help optimize network traffic using IEEE 802.1p quality-of-service. Port mirroring allows users to monitor network traffic for intrusion detection and troubleshooting. To provide additional bandwidth when connecting to other switches, the 2800 series switches support up to six link aggregation groups consisting of up to four ports per group. Advanced cable diagnostics help improve network troubleshooting while the DHCP client feature allows the switch to have an IP address assigned to it dynamically by a DHCP server, or the integrated DHCP server feature can be enabled to help manage a small LAN. The Networking 2800 series offers you more power so you can get more out of your network!Lifetime Warranty
Select Networking switches are backed by an industry-leading, lifetime warranty which guarantees Basic Hardware Service (repair or replacement) for life. Networking switches not only provide the quality, reliability and capability you expect from Dell, but also the peace of mind that comes with a true lifetime warranty.

Incredible value, flexible management capabilities and an energy-conscious design make this ideal for businesses, branch offices, schools and retail establishments with small networks. Fanless design is well-suited for quiet office environments.
Incredible value, flexible management capabilities and an energy-conscious design make this ideal for small networks that require a higher port density than the Networking 2808. Fanless design is well-suited for quiet office environments.
Scalable from small workgroups to dense access solutions, the 2824 offers 24-port flexibility plus two combo small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports for connecting the switch to other networking equipment located beyond the 100 m distance limitations of copper cabling.
Scalable from small workgroups to highly dense acess solutions, the 2848 offers the highest port density in the Networking 2800 family plus four combo small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) ports for connecting the switch to other networking equipment located beyond the 100 m distance limitations of copper cabling.
