The HP 1900-8G switch delivers entry level Layer 2 Gigabit switching solutions in a compact and quiet desktop enclosure, customized and priced for small and mid-sized organizations. Without sacrificing the functionality normally required on managed networks, this managed switch offers tremendous value to small and medium businesses that need a level of control over their network not offered by unmanaged switching products-but require a low-cost solution. The HP 1900-8G switch helps build a voice ready network with QoS, Radius authentication and other features. This switch has seven 10/100/1000 ports, and a dual-purpose Gigabit port (configurable as 10/100/1000 copper or SFP-based fiber) to connect to high performance computers, servers, or network backbones. To ensure optimal use of the network bandwidth and maximum voice and data quality, traffic flow can be directed according to the needs of the business.
