8 10/100Mbps Ports for Workstations Connection
The switch provides 8 10/100Mbps ports supporting auto-sensing and auto-negotiation of network speeds and full/half duplex. These ports can connect to workstations and print servers, giving each a dedicated bandwidth. All ports support auto MDI/MDIX cross-over, allowing you to connect to any node without the need to change your usual straight-through twisted-pair cables.
VLANs for Enhanced Security & Performance
The switch support VLANs to let you improve security and bandwidth utilization by limiting the broadcast domains and confining intra-group traffic within their segments. To segment up the network, VLAN-supported workstations and servers that are connected to the switch can be grouped into different Virtual LANs (VLANs).
Quality of Service Support
The switch supports QoS function to allow you to run bandwidth-intensive and delay-sensitive applications and to attach video servers to the switch for video conference.
The switch supports port mirroring to assist network traffic monitoring. The network administrator can use this function as a diagnostic tool or debugging feature, especially when fending off an attack. It enables you to keep close track of switch performance and alter it if necessary.
