Fantastic Switch!!

by Fred Milek on 11/14/2010

16 Port, and small enough to install anywhere. It's also made by Cisco, so I know that the quality is high!! It's exactly what I needed!!

A lot of value for the price.

by Tony V from on 12/3/2010

I was forced to replace a fried switch and this was an excellent choice. My only little issue is with the distance between each port. For a 16 port Ethernet switch, the cable management is a pain being in a such a closed space. The weight of the cables tilt the switch and make it look funny and unstable. If you are planning to use all the ports, I suggest to get a cable management system together with the switch. aside to that little thing, the switch is exactly what the manufacture describes.

Product Overview

The Cisco® SD216 16-Port 10/100 Desktop 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 16-port 10/100 switch can potentially give you 16 times the network speed you currently have.

It's also the perfect way to integrate 10-Mbps Ethernet and 100-Mbps Fast Ethernet devices. All 16 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 SD216 16-Port 10/100 Switch kick your 10/100 network into high gear.
