Product Overview This desktop switch offers an inexpensive alternative to fibre optics for the SOHO and small and medium business (SMB). Increasing network loads can be handled with the increased bandwidth of Gigabit Ethernet.
Gigabit connectivity without fibre
The switch provides 5 Gigabit ports in the familiar Ethernet format, so it works seamlessly with existing network cables (Cat5 or higher). Up to 2000 Mbps can be achieved in full-duplex mode, giving workstations bottleneck-free access to server data.
All there is to do is plug the cables into the switch.
All ports support both straight-through and crossover cable types, eliminating the need for an uplink port.
With 10/100/1000 Mbps auto-sensing, no configuration is required.
Green Ethernet edition
The latest hardware revision of the switch (D1) introduces the first energy-saving features in the networking arena.
By sensing whether attached devices are ON or OFF and estimating the cable length, the switch is able to adjust its power consumption, for a total saving of up to 27%*.
*figure based on a scenario assuming that PCs are used for 10 hours a day, powered off 14 hours a day and connected to the switch using 20m cables. Features • Power-saving feature, up to 27%* less power consumption (Green Ethernet version only)
• 5 Gigabit Ethernet ports
• Plug-and-play installation
• Desktop size, no fan
