Forty-eight 10/100 Mbps ports and two copper Gigabit Ethernet ports connect to servers or a Gigabit-speed backbone for a non-stop, always available 10/100/1000-enabled network that can quickly deliver large multimedia, image, and video files. All 50 shielded RJ-45 ports automatically negotiate to the highest speed and support Auto Uplink technology to make the right link. Two hot-swappable Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) GBIC slots provide optional fiber connectivity for greater distance. Shipped ready to go straight out of the box, it delivers switching that's easy to set up and use.
Smart Switch capability enables the most key management features for the price of an unmanaged switch. Included are performance monitoring, port configuration, VLAN for traffic control, port trunking for increased bandwidth, and Class of Service (CoS) for traffic prioritization. Ideal for growing businesses who want the benefits of management without the cost and complexity of a managed network.
