The QSW-M2106-4C is a Layer 2 Web Managed Switch with four 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports and six 2.5 Gigabit ports. Supporting Layer 2 switching and network management via a user-friendly web user interface, the QSW-M2106-4C offers flexible deployment in hybrid high-speed network environments and provides an entry-level network management solution that is usable even by non-IT professionals. With high performance, user-friendly management, and a desktop form factor, the QSW-M2106-4C enables cost-effective upgrading to 2.5GbE or 10GbE networking while optimizing bandwidth and ensuring secure network maintenance.
Includes four 10GbE SFP+/ RJ45 combo ports. Compatible with 10GbE and NBASE-T technologies to support five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M) for high-speed networks.
Six 2.5GbE RJ45 ports allow you to immediately multiply your network speed by 2.5 times while using existing Cat 5e cables.
User-friendly management interface
The QNAP Switch System (QSS) is easy to use and provides an overview dashboard, port management and setting guide, making central network management intuitive.
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.
Layer 2 network
Provides Layer 2 management features (such as LACP, VLAN, ACL and LLDP) for IT staff to efficiently control network bandwidth and enhance security.
Online firmware update
QSS can be updated with just one click, helping IT staff ensure their network security.
Flexible deployment with multiple 10G SFP+ fiber and Gigabit ports
The QSW-M2106-4C provides four 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports and six 2.5 Gigabit ports for connecting various devices and enabling hybrid high-speed networks. With SFP+ interfaces, Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cables can be used for connecting directly to SFP+ devices. You can also use RJ45 ports to connect 10GBASE-T/NBASE-T™ devices through RJ45 Category 6 (or better) cabling. The QSW-M2106-4C is backward compatible with other Ethernet devices.
|CAT 5e||CAT 6||CAT 6A & CAT 7|
- 10GbE SFP+ ports are backward compatible with 1GbE SFP; the 10GbE RJ45 (copper) combo ports support up to five speeds (10G / 5G / 2.5G / 1G / 100M); the 2.5GbE RJ45 (copper) ports support up to three speeds (2.5G / 1G / 100M).
- 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.

Optimize Network Performance with bandwidth and packet control
The QSW-M2106-4C 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-M2106-4C 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.
|Access Control List filters packets based on rules to offer firewall-like security protection.||Link Layer Discovery Protocol allows devices to advertise device information to their directly connected peers/neighbors, simplifying troubleshooting processes.||Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, RSTP ensures a loop-free topology for Ethernet networks by blocking or forwarding traffic.||Flow Control balances the traffic between a sender and a receiver to avoid network congestion.|
Desktop form factor for easy use in offices
With a compact and modern design, the QSW-M2106-4C stands out with its textured surface design. The flexible DC power connector enables universal deployment of the QSW-M2106-4C and each port can be easily identified.
