QNAP QGD-1602P 2-Bay NAS and POE Switch Review

Contents & Bundle »



I would like to thank QNAP for supplying the review sample.

In the many years of having dealt with networking products, I have never come across a NAS and (POE) switch combination before. The QNAP QGD-1602P is a POE switch inside the same chassis as a 2-bay NAS that takes a pair of NVME drives. You can fully control the switch in QNAP's excellent QTS operating system since both the NAS and the switch are connected through a pair of 10 GbE connections.

An 8-core Intel Atom CPU is the brains of this product; let's call it a switch from now on out, and in combination with the 16 GB of RAM, it will handle anything you throw at it. If 16 GB of RAM is not enough, it is expandable to upwards of 64 GB. The switch consists of eight 2.5 GbE ports and two SFP+ ports, which provide speeds of up to 10 GbE. 5 GbE host ports are directly connected to the QTS side as well—in order words, the NAS.

The QGD-1602P can supply up to 380 W on its PoE ports. There are eight 2.5 GbE (RJ45), eight 1 GbE (RJ45), and two 10 GbE SFP+ ports. All sixteen non-host ports support the 802.3at PoE standard (PoE+), and four of these (1–4) also support 802.3bt (PoE++), which has them deliver up to 90 W of PoE power if required.
