    Hi @MrVrGr

    The MED and HIGH ports of the GS-105B v3 switch are part of the device's Port-based QoS (Quality of Service) feature. This feature allows the switch to prioritize traffic across different ports, optimizing performance for various connected devices.

    The key difference between MED and HIGH ports lies in their priority levels. HIGH ports are assigned a higher priority over MED ports. This means that in a scenario where the network is busy, and there is a lot of data being transmitted, the switch will prioritize traffic on HIGH ports over MED ports. This prioritization is particularly crucial for devices requiring consistent and reliable bandwidth, such as IP phones, to maintain high-quality voice calls without disruptions.
