Layer 2 switch
Full/half-duplex support for each port
No need to use uplink ports - DES-1016R+ supports auto-polarity
Config port for configuration setup
19" standard rack-mount width
Built with advanced functions, these switches are designed for the workgroups with advanced requirements. Powerful yet easy to use, they allow users to simply plug any port to either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps node to multiply bandwidth, boost response time and satisfy heavy load demand.
In the full-duplex mode, the switches's embedded flow control provides a means to protect users against possible data loss during transmission on the network. When connected to a LAN adapter (in a server PC) that supports flow control, the switch sends signals to the PC regarding buffer overrun during peak usage periods. The PC then delays transmission until the switch is ready again to accept new data.
Optional 100Mbps Fibre Ports - DES-102F
An open slot is provided on the front panel to allow installation of an optional Fast Ethernet fibre module. This module provides 2 100Mbps-fibre ports for 2 server connections or switch-to-switch cascading over fibre cables, which can be up to 2km long.
