GS1915 Port authentication

Options

Hello,

Could you confirm there's no 802.1x Port authentication on GS1915 series switches?

It seem to have only MAC based "Port security"?

Best regards


Anton

    Hi @anton2023

    Yes, you are correct. The GS1915 series switch does not support 802.1x Port Authentication. It only supports for Port Security.

    Could you please share more details about your specific scenario or the feature you are aiming to achieve? This additional information will enable me to assist you more effectively.

    Thank you Kay, for the fast response!

    We are looking for a switch with 802.1X (Port authentication with Radius) and PoE (powering at least 2 units on separate ports)

    We got the information from the reseller, that GS1915-8EP supports 802.1X. But that is incorrect, as we now know.

    It seems like GS1900 would fill our need better?

    Hi @anton2023

    Yes, the GS1900-8HP could fullfill your needs. This model supports 802.1X and offering 8 PoE ports with a 77W total power budget.
