Hello,

I am considering buying a XGS1010-12, the price is very affordable for a 10gbit SFP+ uplink!

My concern is that it is unmanaged and that therefore I will have problem with my VLANs. Does anybody know if it has VLAN passthrough so that it will keep the VLAN tag intact?

Thanks!

    Hello @Wik

    Thank you for your interest in the XGS1010-12. To answer your question, yes, the XGS1010-12 supports VLAN passthrough. This means that the switch will not modify or strip off the VLAN tag when the tagged frames pass through the switch. As the XGS1010-12 is an unmanaged switch, it does not perform any additional handling on the VLAN tag. 

    We hope this information helps. Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions. 

    Best Regards,
