The QGD-1600P is a hybrid PoE switch/NAS that enables NVR, router, and AP controller functions and comes pre-installed with various software to satisfy all SMB networking requirements. The PoE switch can help your business initiate digital transformation by making edge devices intelligent.
High PoE Capability– up to 60W
The QGD-1600P is compliant with the latest IEEE 802.3bt PoE++ and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standards, offering 4-port 60-watt and 12-port 30-watt Gigabit PoE capability. The QGD-1600P can supply a total power budget of 370 watts to meet the demands of many high-power devices (PDs), such as IP cameras, wireless APs, IP phones, LED lights, and digital signage.
Intelligent PoE Functions for Efficient, Centralized PD Management
The QGD-1600P supports intelligent PoE management functions, including scheduling, power supply prioritization, and power enabling and disabling. You can obtain the real-time network connection status and power consumption information of PDs and configure PDs simultaneously to promote an energy-saving PoE network.
The First PoE Switch with VM Support
The QGD-1600P is the world’s first PoE switch with the QTS operating system built in for VM, container, and other cloud applications, enabling diverse networking and storage solutions. In addition to QVR Pro, VJBOD, and other diverse storage applications, the QTS App Center also supports VMs for running many open-source software applications, including MikroTik® RouterOS, OpenWrt, pfSense®, and Ubiquiti® UniFi®. Integrated with public cloud services, the QGD-1600P meets the needs of various applications in IP surveillance, storage expansion, network security, and wireless LAN management. The QGD-1600P dual-CPU design enables you to run the networking management interfaces of QSS (QNAP Switch System) and QTS independently. The QGD-1600P offers a user-friendly web interface, QuNetSwitch, to help SMBs easily deploy a flexible and secure IT infrastructure.
QTS and QSS can work independently without interfering each other to ensure continuous operation. For example, when restarting the QTS, the QSS PoE power supply will not be interrupted; when rebooting the QSS, the VMs on QTS will keep running.

QGD-1600P + VJBOD: A Highly Scalable Storage Solution
The QGD-1600P supports up to two SATA drives and other hardware-based storage expansion accessories, such as PCIe, USB, SAS expansion cards and RAID Expansion Enclosure (TR-004U) to provide reliable performance. Additionally, you can expand the storage space of the QGD-1600P via QNAP VJBOD. VJBOD allows you to instantly allocate storage space from a remote QNAP NAS as an iSCSI LUN and create storage pools, take snapshots, create clones from snapshots, or index multimedia files in the media library on the QGD-1600P. With the expansion availability of physical units and VJBOD, you can attain the highest possible storage utilization to fulfill volume data storage and backup needs.
