The Easy Smart range of switches from TP-Link is targeted at the advanced consumer market; they have some enterprise-class managed switching features such as VLAN tagging and port mirroring and management features.

You can use Utility or Web interface (Web only for TL-SG1016DE and TL-SG1024DE) to manage Easy Smart switch and configure basic settings, such as VLAN, QoS and a few L2 features like LAG, IGMP Snooping and Port Mirroring. If there are no advanced applications needed, the Easy Smart switch is the best choice. The Easy Smart switch is ideally suited for SOHO or small business. You can also use it for a home network.

An alternative to Easy Smart Switch is Smart Switch. Smart Switch can be managed by Web interface, Telnet, SSH and SNMP. It supports far more L2 features and better QoS than Easy Smart Switch. Smart Switch also supports more advanced functions like ACL and Spanning Tree protocol. If you want to support a solution for a small company the Smart Switch is your ideal solution.
