|The Cisco® SD208 8-Port 10/100 Switch can significantly increase the speed of your network traffic. A switch serves the same function as a hub in a network design, tying your network equipment together. But unlike a simple-minded hub, which divides the network's bandwidth among all the attached devices, a switch delivers full network speeds at each port. Installing this cost-effective 8-port 10/100 switch can potentially give you eight times your current network speed.
It's also the perfect way of integrating 10-Mbps Ethernet and 100-Mbps Fast Ethernet devices. All eight ports are auto speed negotiating and 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 independently negotiates for best speed and half- or full-duplex mode, for up to 200 Mbps of bandwidth per port. Fast store-and-forward switching prevents damaged packets from being passed on to the network.
The ultra-compact case design is sure to fit into your workgroup environment. Let the Cisco SD208 8-Port 10/100 Switch kick your 10/100 network into high gear.
