The Yamaha SWR2311P-10G is an intelligent L2 switch that can supply power to PoE powered devices connected to the switch. Yamaha has integrated its own expertise in networking and professional audio fields and developed it as an L2 switch optimized for Dante audio networks.
The "SWR2311P-10G" is an intelligent L2 switch that provides the ideal functionality for the Dante digital audio network that was developed by the Audinate Corporation and is now used world-wide, allowing construction of a stable network that simplifies settings, monitoring, management, and operation. When you connect the VXL1-16P to the SWR2311P-10G, optimal settings for Dante are made automatically via LLDP that is a protocol for passing system management data between a device and its neighboring device. PoE compliant ports can supply a maximum of 30W for all ports simultaneously. It can power not only PoE compliant devices such as the "MCP1" wall-mount controller used for controlling the volume of sound equipment used in conference rooms, or wireless access points, and can also provide ample power for driving even devices that require higher-output PoE such as the VXL1B-16P or VXL1W-16P.
Using the dedicated "Yamaha LAN Monitor" software allows quick troubleshooting; you can check the PoE power supply status, turn the PoE power supply, and use the snapshot function to inform you whether a fault has occurred by detecting any difference in the state of the network since it was set up. The web GUI provides a full range of monitoring functionality, including dead/alive monitoring settings for PoE devices, allowing you to restart the PoE device if a fault occurs, or informing you via email of a fault.
You can take a "snapshot" of the network status when set up as required. The software can then automatically keep track of the settings and alert you to any changes. You could take a snapshot of the network, and then you would be alerted if a cable is disconnected, if a device is turned off, or if a wrong connection is made prior to the performance, for example.
In situations that require Dante devices to be connected across distances greater than 100 meters, you can use the "SFP-SWRG-SX" or "SFP-SWRG-LX" long-distance communication SFP modules to ensure reliable communication with minimal transmission loss and strong resistance to electromagnetic noise even across long distances.
