March 24, 2023 by Tony Monteleone

Adtran, a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment, has released their new NetVanta 1570-24-370W switch, part of the NetVanta 1570 Series.

The Adtran NetVanta 1570-24-370W is an enterprise-class, fully managed Gigabit PoE+ switch that offers advanced multilayer switching, high-bandwidth capabilities, and voice-aware features which are perfect for supporting highly resilient IoT, cloud applications, and Voice over IP (VoIP).

The 1570-24-370W switch can be configured by two methods: Web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) or Command Line Interface (CLI).

Initial Switch Configuration Using a Web Browser:

After powering up the switch for the first time, you can perform the initial switch configuration using a web browser.   

To begin the initial configuration stage, reconfigure your PC’s IP address and subnet mask to make sure the PC can communicate with the switch. After changing the PC’s IP address (for example,, then access the web interface of the switch using the switch’s default IP address.

The factory default IP address of the switch is and the subnet mask is If the switch is connected to a Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) server, the server assigns the switch an IP address and the default IP address is not configured. The DHCP server also assigns your PC the correct IP address to allow a connection on the same subnet as the switch.

To initially configure the switch, complete the following steps:

1. Power up the PC that you will use for the initial configuration. Make sure the PC has the Ethernet RJ-45 connector to be connected to the switch via a standard Ethernet LAN cable.

If the switch is connected to a DHCP server, skip to Step 3.*

*(NOTE: Users can also skip Steps 1-2, by pressing WinKey+R and typing the ncpa.cpl command to get to Step 4 directly)

2. Reconfigure the PC’s IP address and subnet mask as below, so that it can communicate with the switch. Be sure to record all your PC’s current IP settings to be able to restore them later.

For example, the method to change the PC’s IP address for a PC running Windows® 7/8.x/10 is as follows:

  • Type Network and Sharing into the Search box in the Start Menu.
  • Select Network and Sharing Center.
  • Select Change Adapter Settings on the left of PC screen.
    • Right-click on your local adapter and select Properties.
    • In the Local Area Connection Properties menu, highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4). Then, select the Properties button.
    • Select the radio button. 
    • Use the following IP address and enter in the IP address for the PC (e.g., any IP address not in use, and in between and, subnet mask (e.g., 
    • Select OK to change the PC’s IP address.

3. Power up the switch to be initially configured, and wait until it has finished its start-up processes.

4. Connect the PC to any port on the switch using a standard Ethernet cable, and check the port LED on the switch to make sure the link status of the PC is OK.

5. Run your web browser on the PC; enter either the DHCP-assigned or factory default IP address to access the switch’s web interface. If your PC is configured correctly, you will see the login page of the switch requesting your username and password. In some browsers, the information needed may be requested in a new window. 

If you do not see the login page, perform the following steps: 

  • Refresh the web page.
  • Check to see if there is an IP conflict issue. 
  • Clean browser cookies and temporary Internet files.
  • Check your PC settings again and repeat Step 2.

6. Enter the factory default username in the login page. Select Login to log into the switch.

Initial Switch Configuration Using CLI:

The CLI can be accessed using any one of the two console ports (USB & RJ45) available on the switch. To establish the connection to the console port, the following are needed:

  • PC with VT100 terminal emulation software
  • Micro USB to USB cable or a DB-9 to RJ45 Serial Cable (the cables are provided along with the unit)
