8 Copper Gigabit Ports
8 Gigabit ports provide an inexpensive alternative solution to fiber-optic. Using your existing low-cost Cat. 5 copper twisted-pair wires as the transmission media, these ports allow you to instantly upgrade your servers to Gigabit capability without requiring you to install new, expensive fiber cables. All ports support 10/100/1000Mbps network speed auto-sensing and full/half duplex auto-negotiation. For downstream network expansion, you can also attach these Gigabit ports to 10/100Mbps switches, from which workstations can access the network.
Full-duplex Gigabit Server Access
The Gigabit ports provide dedicated bandwidths for your servers running at 2000Mbps full-duplex. This gives workstations bottleneck-free paths to simultaneously access server data.
IEEE 802.3x Flow Control
This function support allows your servers to directly connect to the switch for fast, reliable data transfer. At 2000Mbps full duplex, the switch provides high-speed data pipes to your servers with minimum data transfer loss.
Auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX Cross Over
All ports support auto-negotiation of MDI/MDIX cross over. This eliminates the need for cross over cables or uplink ports. Any port can simply plug to a server, a hub or aswitch, using the usual straight-through twisted-pair cable.
The switch integrates seamlessly with your existing network equipment, be it Ethernet, Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet, dispensing you of the need to replace any hardware or software.
With 10/100/1000Mbps auto-sensing, auto-negotiation for every port, plus the ability to exist with your Cat. 5 wall wiring, network installation is a breeze. All you need to do is plug the cables to the switch, and your network is up and running in a matter of minutes.
