The device is a powerful, high-performance Fast Ethernet switch, with all 24 / 26 ports capable of 10 or 100Mbps auto-negotiation operation (N-Way) which means the switch could automatically negotiate with the connected partners on the network speed and duplex mode. It is ideal for micro-segmenting large networks into smaller, connected subnets for improved performance, enabling the bandwidth demanding multimedia and imaging applications.
Moreover, the 10/100Mbps auto-sensing ability provides an easy way to migrate 10Mbps to 100Mbps network with no pain. Compared to the shared 10Mbps or 100Mbps networks, the switch delivers a dedicated 10/100Mbps connection to every attached client with no bandwidth congestion issue. Store-and-forward switching mode promises the low latency plus eliminates all the network errors, including runt and CRC error packets.
To work under full-duplex mode, transmission and reception of the frames can occur simultaneously without causing collisions as well as double the network bandwidth. The switch is plug-n-play without any software to configure and also fully compliant with all kinds of network protocols. Moreover, the rich diagnostic LEDs on the front-panel provide the operating status of individual port and whole system.
