|The Cisco® SD2005 5-Port Gigabit Switch, part of the Cisco Small Business Series, provides nonblocking, wire-speed switching for your 10-, 100-, and 1000-megabit network clients. Use this switch to replace your current workgroup hub or Fast Ethernet switch, to upgrade your high-requirement workstations to full Gigabit speeds as necessary, while continuing to service other clients at their current speeds. Or build your network from the ground up, with appropriate link speeds for each user's requirements. Either way, it's perfect for graphics, multimedia, and other applications that have to move large files across the network quickly.|
With the Cisco SD2005, you can upgrade your existing 10/100 Ethernet network to Gigabit speed without any additional equipment. All ports have automatic medium dependent interface (MDI) and MDI crossover (MDI-X) detection, so you don't have to worry about the cable type. Each port also independently and automatically negotiates for best speed and whether to run in half- or full-duplex mode. Address Learning and Aging is supported, as well as 802.3x flow control with head-of-line blocking prevention to optimize your network performance. Fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed on to the network.
World-famous Cisco reliability gives you peace of mind, and the ultra-compact case design is sure to fit into your workgroup environment. Let the Cisco SD2005 5-Port Gigabit Switch kick your network into high gear.
Customer Reviews of Cisco SD2005 5-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch
Nice Solid Switch6/14/2013
I like this switch, it feels real solid unlike so many out there and works as expected.
Plugged in it worked5/9/2009
Plugged it into the power added the uplink cable to my existing router, added the other network devices to the new linksys switch and I was done. Buy.com shipping was fast as always.
1 Gb Switching on Mixed Data Rate Networks!4/9/2008
My home network has 4 computers. Two run at 100 Mb. Two run at 1 Gb. I move a lot of data between the two fast ones. Using this switch, the fast ones talk to each other at 1 Gb. They talk to the slow ones at 100 Mb. The bottom line is that data flows between nodes at the rate of the slowest node, but never slower. Everybody is happy, including the Gateway Router and the Cable Modem. Of course, this switch is a Linksys product so it works. "Two Thumbs Up!" and Five *s.
gigabit speeds, great performance and ease of use are all i have to say about this product. thank you buy.com for carrying quality products. and thank you linksys for always producing those quality products. Buy.com got this little switch to me in 24 hours with their free shipping. this is why i always check buy.com before going with anyone else.
Easy to Install1/14/2008
My network consists of a BEFSR41 Linksys 10/100 router and a linksys 16 port hub(upstairs). I slowly want to upgrade my network to gigabit and this 5 port gigabit switch is the way to go. It was very easy to get it up and running. Turned everything off, plugged in the switch, connected to my 10/100 router, plugged everything back in and I was up and running. With this I can now stream dvd iso's without loosing a pixel.
Best value, Best quality.12/22/2007
I have tried other switches for clients and have had problems but with Linksys it worked 1st time. The quality is there and reliability is the best. Would definetly recommend.
Significant improvement in network speed compared to a typical 100 Megabit switch. Perfect for workgroup or temporary needs when a managed switch is not needed.
Good price, for a powerful little switch10/3/2006
I bought these to maintain my Gigabit network. We had to add on few more users than planned to a single data port. This switch was a really easy, excellent solution. I definitely recommend this switch, for any network that you want to keep traffic flowing on.
Great home switch2/1/2006
This little switch is great. Form factor is perfect for a home office and the transfer speed between computers is awesome. The front panel LEDs doesn't indicated connection speed like some other switches but I don't think it is a big deal. Lifetime guarantees makes this a must have!
Sleek, speedy, and simple5/12/2005
Easy to drop into the place of an existing small workgroup switch. Panel lights are too simple in showing only activity, not link speed or quality, but it's enough. Remote desktop is a dream now, quick response to input. Opening central files from the server will not let your coffee get cold. A little pricey still, but lifetime warranty. I am buying more.
