The NetVanta® 1200 Series of managed, Layer 3 Lite, Ethernet switches is designed for fast, secure, cost-effective Local Area Network (LAN) switching. These scalable, full-featured business-class switches are perfect for Voice over IP (VoIP) applications. The switches use robust Quality of Service (QoS) features and Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities to power IP Phones, protecting the organization with advanced security capabilities, and ease of management with an easy-to-use Web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) and familiar Command Line Interface (CLI).


The NetVanta 1234P and 1238P rackmount switches support 24 and 48 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports with auto-rate, auto-duplexing and MDI/MDI-X sensing. In addition, each switch supports two 1.0 Gbps shared Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) or copper ports, and two 2.5 Gbps enhanced SFP ports. Together the four uplink ports can provide up to 14 Gbps of bandwidth between interconnected NetVanta 1234P or 1238P switches.

Multi-layer Switching

The NetVanta 1230 Series switches support advanced multi-layer (Layer 2 and Layer 3 Lite) switching with up to 32 static routes allowing it to easily scale from SMBs to enterprise-size networks.

Standards-based Protocols

Based on the ADTRAN® Operating System (AOS), these devices offer support for Link Aggregation (802.3ad); Port Mirroring; and Port-based switching features including Broadcast Storm Control, Spanning Tree (802.1D) and Rapid Spanning Tree (802.1w) for faster network convergence, link redundancy, and recovery from topology changes.


All NetVanta switches support 802.1Q trunking and up to 255 port-based VLANs to allow network managers to separate broadcast domains for efficient network performance and traffic control.

Power over Ethernet

The NetVanta 1234P and 1238P platforms provide standards-based 802.3af and Legacy PoE functionality for powering IP phones, WAPs, or other devices requiring LAN power.


The NetVanta 1200 Series switches offer a variety of data security features including multilevel user passwords, Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for encrypted user login, and Access Authentication and Authorization (AAA) for authentication with a RADIUS, RSA SecurID and TACACS+.

VoIP Ready

The NetVanta 1200 Series switches are VoIP-ready with the ability to automatically configure IP phones using LLDP-MED, and the ability to separate voice traffic onto voice VLANs, to simplify the deployment of VoIP. In addition, the switches include a VoIP Setup Wizard (available via a web-based GUI or CLI), which automates the complete VoIP setup process reducing deployment time and eliminating errors. An on-demand VoIP report provides a printable summary of the switch VoIP configuration, as well as providing alerts and recommendations to improve performance. All NetVanta switches support QoS to prioritize VoIP traffic, 802.1p and DiffServ Class of Service (CoS).


The AOS offers both a CLI and an intuitive Web-based GUI with step-by-step configuration wizards. For a centralized enterprise-wide management scheme, ADTRAN offers n-Command®, an intuitive, scalable software suite to manage firmware revisions, push firmware upgrades and configuration changes, backup and restore configurations, and manage security policies and Access Control Lists (ACLs).

NetVanta 1200 Series of Ethernet switches are easily coupled with other ADTRAN products including access routers, WAPs, IP Business Gateways, IP phones, and VoIP telephony solutions. All of these solutions are backed by ADTRAN’s outstanding support and services, and an industry-leading warranty.
