IGMP dynamically configures switch ports so that multicast traffic is forwarded only to devices associated with the appropriate receiver, improving network performance by reducing flooding.

FS Client Reviews:

"I bought it for the 802.1Q VLAN switching... I've separated my home networks between work (I work from home), users (family), home-automation, LoT (untrusted appliances... like security DVRs and home assistants), and Management (network management). For a home VLAN setup I'm quite happy with these switches... "
